Czech It Out

Three updates in a single day... must be some sort of record (well, for me at least).

But while I'm in the process of putting together some chili for tomorrow night (what, you don't make your chili the night before and let it simmer all night and day in the crockpot?), I thought that I'd point out Nil By Mouth, which, aside from being an interesting blog to read, also has the extra cool feature of changing its design everytime you load it. Paul sez: check it out.

It also has the advantage of being written by an American in Paris, which is not only a great Gershwin tune but a pretty darn good movie. Paris itself is a wonderful city and something of a uncredited co-star in the wonderful movie Amelie (the original title was Le Fabuleux destin d'Amelie Poulain, which literally translates as "The Fabulous Destiny of Amelie Poulain", but since Americans prefer movies with short titles [did you know that The Madness of George III a movie about the troubled George III, was renamed The Madness of King George for America so that viewers wouldn't wonder why they missed Madness I and Madness II], the title got cut down). Highly recommended. I'm not sure that it's the 15th best movie of all time (as the IMDB ranking indicates), but it is definitely the most charming movie I've seen in a really long time.

I just hope that the star, the luminous Audrey Tautou, doesn't get typecast as the next Audrey Hepburn...
