I only ask because I feel slightly guilty, but the thing is I just didn't want to deal with her anymore. She was starting to freak my shit out, ok? I can't quite explain it --- but when you pull that little string and she whispers in a somewhat sinister tone, "I have a secret. Do you want to know what it is?" --- well, I would have to stuff her into the foot chest in the living room because I do not need some old lady doll stealing my soul at the witching hour. The thing I did was --- as I gave a TV set to my little brother, an aspiring and gifited Manhattan artist, I more or less forced him to take my Mrs. Beasley doll.

Yes. I made my brother take Mrs. Beasely. My hope is that he will sell her on Ebay for a good amount and get rid of her before she tries to harm him or his lovely girlfriend, Mayumi. Was that wrong of me? Am I going to go to Hell for that? Well, I don't think there is a hell, but what sort of karmatic feedback am I destined to experience for sending that evil 60's sitcom-inspired doll home with my innocent brother? I fear it is not good.

Roy and I had a really cool time. We saw a lame French film, ate really unhealthy food, discussed the horrific state of the world, the embarrasment of US politics and policies and the fact that Arnold Shwarzentager (yes, I am sure I spelled the Nazi's name wrong. Sorry) is most likely going to be our President one day. You know it will happen. UGH! Oh, and we watched 2046, the sequel to IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE. We had a bit of debate over this film. We both agreed that we loved the visuals and the sheer artistry displayed --- but I felt Wong Kar Wai was "borrowing" a bit too much from Kubrick and I also felt a bit cheated as the film's connection to IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE seemed somewhat of an after thought. I mean, Tony Leung's character seemed to be a different person than the kind man we were shown in IML. ...and what was up with the gorgeous robot woman getting so brutually stabbed as Tony Leung watch? And why was this film so long???? Still, I would give the movie an 8 for the cinematography, sets, music and lighting alone. I think Roy felt it was a better film than IML. Maybe he is right. One thing of interest --- and something rather interesting to me --- I was blown away by the beauty of the women in this film! I mean I don't think there is a chance in hell I am going to go "straight" --- but Faye Wong and Maggie Cheung could definitely make me think about it! I now list them up there with Debbie Harry as the hottest women I know of!

Hope everyone had a great weekend and my the Creator forgive me for passing the Evil Mrs. Beasley to my brother!

love and kisses,

It's totally legal! And your brother could have dumped Mrs. Beasley in the nearest trashcan if he was disinclined to spend a single evening with her at home, so don't give it another thought. Poof! Karma all clean! It's all good. Now please, don't ever again suggest that Ah-Nold will be President! That is more than my poor, beleagured thinking apparatus can grapple with at this early hour!

Why'd you get that creepy doll in the first place? I'm with you, in the foot chest she goes. (Or home with the first visitor that'll take her.)

All I can think of is the doll on Seinfeld that bears strong resemblance to Mrs Costanza... yeesh.

You wana know what's funny? 2 things...

1) Very rarely...if almost never...would a Caucasian know the CORRECT order of an Asian name...most would have spelled it as Kar Wai Wong...ya the first...kudos to you...

2) To reiterate my point that Asian movies arent huge in the Western world...notice all the posts you made on Asian films...im the only one who talked bout it...others dont...probably clueless lol...bet you $10 they arent Asians...

The biggest irony is i dont even watch them Asian films...havin grown in a society that reeks of oppressed and close-minded Asians...ive shut them off totally...

Wait a minute Matt---last I heard you banished your robo dog to live with Karl in the North end?
Why are these creatures haunting you so?

**Course you could always get some holy water and sprinkle it around your apartment.

What's a 'Mrs. Beasley'? And why does she have secrets? It's all very strange..

Regardless, Faye Wong is gorgeous and has an amazing singing voice to boot - but she's an incredible snobby bitch in real life (if we're talking about the same Faye Wong here).

Good that you got rid of Mrs. Beasley doll since she'll wreak havoc when you're sleeping. And don't ever let her near your neck ... she'll bite and kill you.

Wong Faye does have a fantastic voice ... like a classy midwestern lounge singer from the 50's, but Asian.

Yeah, Faye Wong/Wong Fei/whatever is a bit of a diva apparently .... but she's got a nice voice so who cares, right? My secret plan is to coincide my first trip to meet Yong's family with a Faye Wong tour and ask them to get tickets for us! That would rule ....

Um, and I really have no idea what a 'Mrs Beasley' is. Did we miss something important on this side of the Atlantic?!

I tried watching 2046, but I just fast forwarded... Maybe I should give it another chance, not sure.

I find your knowledge on [Chinese] Asian movies impressive! heh!
