So what did you think? - Amani
Do tell. - Anne Bouey
I really liked it. One of my favorites of the year so far - solid action art film. - Jandy
Agree. The action was intense for PG-13. Loved it!!! - Gabrielle
I thought the main character did extremely well. She is one to watch! - Amani

The slow burn of the tragedy on AMC's "The Killing" is breaking. my. heart.

Kinda bummed that GetGlue only has special stickers for new, major releases. Boooooring. I think it'd be way cooler to get a sticker for "hey, you watched Cecil B. DeMille's last silent film!" or "sweet, you're watching a cult 1960s British TV show!"
New app/site idea JandyVision! - Joe "The Anvil" Pierce
are you watching the avengers? - Michael W. May
Was yesterday. - Jandy
With Jandy it's easier to ask if she ISN'T watching The Avengers. - Joe "The Anvil" Pierce
It expires off Instant next week. I'm trying to show Jonathan the best ones. But I keep forgetting which the best one are because I tend to marathon them and then forget which is which. - Jandy
Aren't the GetGlue stickers sponsored, though? In order to have stickers like you'd want, someone would have to shell out whatever it costs to sponsor them. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE from WinForFeed
Yeah, I think that's the problem. Not all the stickers are sponsored (like the general ones for seeing things opening week or various amounts of checkins), but the specific ones are always like "brought to you by our friends at Warner Bros." Which also bugs me. All corporate-y. - Jandy
I like your idea, Jandy. Let's sell this idea and take some poor idiot's money. - Mike Nayyar
Yea, the selection overall, once you get past the superficial new releases, is pretty slim. And don't even get me started on the low selection of stickers for books. - Angel R. Rivera

Amplify has had a major step backwards, Cliqset has closed down and Pip.io didn't turn out to be what we were expecting.
Thank goodness for FrienFeed! :-D - Kol Tregaskes
Amplify: has removed the blogging feature all together, so I'll have to redirect my links elsewhere. What a odd and frustrating move! - Kol Tregaskes
Cliqset: closed down as they didn't promote the service as a place to hang out. Feature-rich and in places better than FriendFeed but didn't have anyone using it. - Kol Tregaskes
Pip.io talked the talk but didn't walk the walk. The new version wasn't a great leap forward and certainly certain features we thought were coming didn''t. - Kol Tregaskes
Like we've been discussing for a long time we really need a place where we can distribute are content from our own hosted area on the net. - Kol Tregaskes
That is always the weakness of centralised system: they can change it what ever way they want to focus on needs that dont match yours. All the work and content you put in vanishes down a black hole (cant imagine how I would get out of FF stuff I wrote a year ago, for example). There are quite a few self hosted options you can set up, and of course there was wave which was trying to go... more... - Iphigenie
Thank you, I've bookmarked them for later too. :-) There was another project that got a lot of headlines, I can't remember the name but it looked ideal. Hmmm... - Kol Tregaskes
Which of those have really caught your eye? - Kol Tregaskes
Ah it was Diaspora: https://joindiaspora.com/ - still waiting for an invite. It feels like it's been a year of waiting! :-( - Kol Tregaskes
What do you mean? I can still write a post with their bookmarklet/Fx ext or was their another feature? I just started using it yesterday - sofarsoShawn from FreshFeed
Has anyone looked at Friendika? http://portal.friendika.com/ I don't know if it's *the* one, but it has the features I think are best for users (users are the customers, not the product): open-source, distributed, privacy-friendly, self-hosted, etc. - Tinfoil 2.0
Pip.io demonstrated that you can't have a company run solely by developers. They launched too early. Pip.io had the chance to overtake Twitter and possibly even Facebook but they got overly excited and released too soon not understanding that once the public has assessed you, it's nearly impossible to get them to give you another chance. Regardless of how great their ideas and efforts... more... - Akiva
Never had a problem with that in Chrome myself. - Akiva
And there's your problem right there. - Akiva
I just tried out it's auto posting features with a video import, which looks brilliant, but nope, it's frustratingly faulty at each connection their were posting errors or something was missing. FF still works much better - sofarsoShawn
You can install Diaspora if you're technical. https://github.com/diaspor... It's still alpha though - AJ Batac
Where do Twitter and Facebook fit in? There are RSS import options for both, and Twitter recently added multimedia embed support. - Mike Chelen
Shawn, which service are you talking about? Amplify? Thanks for the add btw. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
Yup amplify, when auto posting, it will update your soc net with the link to amplify of your content, not the actual content: this happens with Twitter which I way more heavily it updated it with: something something sofarsoShawn amplifyed some biznatch <link>, posterous, Buzz, tumblr, and I haven't even checked out the others - sofarsoShawn
@akiva, I left Pip.io and is now working at Twitter. You're very right about what happened to Pip.io, I got pushed to release things that weren't ready or polished for mass consumption. But I've definitely learned a ton about how to build a site where the users are heavily interactive with each other and I'm working on something new. Pretty much distilling that idea, ripping out the... more... - David Robit Chen
holy crap, cliqset closed down? I didn't even know (guess that's an indicator), I was routing for them, loved how they were using bleeding edge technology - Mitchell McKenna
What technology did Cliqset use that was so advanced? Their web site seemed fine but I didn't notice any special usage of the latest web technologies. - Mike Chelen

Kicking and Screaming - 1995, dir Noah Baumbach - Jandy's rating: ****1/2 out of ***** [EXPIRING 3/15] [BACK ON 4/2] - http://movies.netflix.com/WiMovie...
Kicking and Screaming - 1995, dir Noah Baumbach - Jandy's rating: ****1/2 out of ***** [EXPIRING 3/15] [BACK ON 4/2]
"In writer-director Noah Baumbach's take on postcollege angst, Grover (Josh Hamilton) declines to go with his girlfriend (Olivia d'Abo) to Prague and decides to move in with other recent college grads who can't quite break the gravitational pull of campus. Together, the friends wrestle with leaving the past behind as they reluctantly step into adulthood. But they're afraid they'll end up like bartender and professional student Chet (Eric Stoltz)." - Jandy from Bookmarklet
This is easily one of the best films I've ever seen about the quarterlife crisis and that sense of post-college drifting. Watching it with a bunch of grad student friends, all of us in the humanities, certainly struck a chord - the kinds of feelings and situations in this film are pretty much exactly why most of us were in grad school. The film expires of Instant next week. - Jandy
Off streaming now, but Netflix says "coming to streaming on 4/1." So yeah, the expirations probably seem worse than they are - stuff seems to come back a lot. Interestingly, this is Criterion, which means they're still making deals at some level with Netflix. - Jandy
This is back on streaming as of last week. It's still quite worth watching. :) - Jandy

Dating Question: How much younger would you date, especially if you are looking to settle down?
No more than a few years younger than myself. - Jenny
-3 years younger. - NOT THE CRICKET
I think no younger than 5 years younger than myself. At least not under 30. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
I think my wife would be pretty upset if I dated anyone younger than me (or anyone else, for that matter) :) Seriously, though, I very rarely dated anyone younger than me; I always went for women 1-5 years older than me. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Jeremy, half your age + 7. - Akiva
April is 4.5 years older than I am. - Kevin L
For the record, Rochelle is 9 years younger than I am. The older I get, the younger my girlfriends have gotten. I rock it like that. - Akiva
There is a decimal point in there! - Kevin L
Akiva, based on that, 25 is the low end of my range: not a chance I'd be comfortable with that. But I'd say...5 years younger to 8-10 years older. - ellbeecee
as young as 24, as old as 50. But....*singing - You must be a special lady....And a very exciting girl....You gotta be a special lady...You gotta be sitting on top of the world, sitting on top of the world!....Somehow I knew, it would be you...that changed my grey skies to blue...* - Morgan
If I ever started dating again it would mean my wife finally got tired of me. I would be looking for my midlife crisis trophy wife. She would have to be 20 years younger than me. - Alan
Do you think it's different for a man to date a younger woman than a woman to do the same? - Shevonne
4-6 years. - Steven Perez
Shawn is over 3 years younger than me. I think that's probably the most I could do - even with that age difference we lose a lot of generational references. But I am immature for my age (in many ways), he's mature for his (in many ways), so I think we meet in the middle mostly in that respect. I got teased pretty mercilessly when we were dating, but we were 16 and 19 when we met/17 and 20 when we were dating. I don't know that a guy would've been teased the way I was. - Alix May
I am 5 years older than husband...at the time we dated I had to endure all if the Stella got her groove back comments so I wouldn't go younger than that - furrworld
I think they are the same. Older guy w/ younger woman is pretty darn common worldwide. But with the tables turning in recent years, resulting in Sugar Mama's, Cougars, Girl Power and all the things that should have been around from the beginning, it's pretty much normal to have the Older Woman, younger man combo show up. And on a personal note - When you buy a dog, you usually buy a puppy.... - Morgan
age should never be a criteria - Peter Dawson
I think in todays lifestyle .. its ok both ways..look at Micheal dougles and Catherine Zeta..and now look at Demi Moore and Ashton whatever..u know what I mean.. the guy who was punked show - Peter Dawson
You mean Ashton Kutcher? The king of Twitter? - Rahsheen
king of twitter ? who died and made him King ? - Peter Dawson
Didn't he start all this race to 1 million followers crap? - Rahsheen
1/2 + 7 - Alex Scrivener
Age of adults is relevant only in that it very loosely correlates to emotional and intellectual maturity. Other than that, the only considerations I can see are whether one partner is likely to die well before the other, or whether one parent would be infirm while kids are still needing guidance. - Tinfoil 2.0
@LogEx I used to think like you do; however, after being married to a much older woman, I find that unless you're both after the same life goals, you're going to have problems. Unfortunately, I wouldn't advise people to date or marry more than a certain number of years apart, regardless of emotional or intellectual maturity. - Just another Bubba
Probably no more than 10 years younger. Josh is 4 years younger than me. - Melly Claus
No more that 10 years younger. Preferably she would have had children already or does not want any kids. I already have two. - Jeff P. Henderson
depends on what state I am in. - Anthony Citrano from BuddyFeed
10 younger, settling down, 10 older :) - sofarsoShawn
+/- 5 years - Tamara J. B.
I found a super-sweet guy, who just happened to be 13.5 years younger than me. Emotionally and mentally we meet in the middle, as soneone else said I also tend to be a bit immature at times for my age, and he tends to be a bit more mature, so it works out nicely. Lots of folks have called me a cougar, but my husband just calls me kitty. :D Age wasn't a criteria for us, but life goals, values, and goofiness levels were. Turns out, we're pretty much made for each other. I was just made a bit earlier. - Bette Cooper
Three or four. Close enough, I think, in maturity levels. Don't wanna be a momma. Don't need a daddy. - #cryptic
I used to think about three years younger. Then I met this incredible woman who was 23 when I was 28 and I let myself talk me out of it and I've been kicking myself ever since. So I guess the lesson is: five! - Andrew C (✔)
my rule (recently broken with heavy toll): girls over 27, and i have a thing for women 2 years older than me - it's a pattern. no more than 5 years apart (i'm 33) - Alexandre Gamela from twhirl
The secret of a happy age difference formula remains a secret. - Dave Richardson
I'm not sure. I am more interested in maturity, but I'll say 5 years younger. - Valley
from experience: +11/-15 - earlyadopter

Which films have emotionally moved you to the point where you can't watch them again?
I can't bring myself to watch The Deer Hunter again because it really upset me and for similar, yet different reasons, I will never watch the original version of Last House on the Left a second time. - Mary Carmen
Schindler's List - Joe "The Anvil" Pierce
Mostly documentaries - AJ Batac
Welcome to the Dollhouse - Absentee
Grave of the Fireflies...Perfect Blue - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Glory. - Mark H
I'm not sure "moved" is the right word, but I cannot rewatch Apocalypse Now - Rachel Walden
Grave of the Fireflies - Jennifer Dittrich
Requiem For A Dream. - Georgia
I accidentally watched Requiem for a Dream with a friend who didn't know what the word "requiem" meant. She, um, was not prepared. - Rachel Walden
I'm not sure about "emotionally moved" or "can't watch them again," but disturbed enough that I don't ever intend to: Requiem for a Dream, Deer Hunter, American History X. - Greg Schwartz
Irreversible - Christopher Galtenberg
What Dreams May Come - Patrick aka Damexican
AI: Artificial Intelligence believe it or not. Watched it in 2001 when I was 12. The ending where hes all alone just got to me..... haven't watched it since. - Roberto Bonini
Just asked the missus and her answer was Gattaca. - Mark H
None that I can think of, really - I'm cold as ice. Possibly some that were disturbing enough I don't care to rewatch, but not emotionally moved. - Jandy
Dude, where's my car? Just haunts me... - Joe from iPod
Angela's Ashes. Too much folk memory involved. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
GRAVE OF THE FIREFLIES and THE NOTEBOOK. - Steven Perez
I'm like Jandy - none that I can think of. - Katy S
Requiem for a Dream for me too. - Jason P
Graves of the Fireflies had to keep stopping it when it was playing because it was so depressing. - Sir Shuping is just sir
None. There are moving movies I wouldn't watch again, but more likely due to being insincere or too moralistic (or misguided). But if it's a good movie with genuine emotion, no problem. - Tinfoil 2.0
I am not sure there are any that I would classify that way, but Kids definitely disturbed me so much I haven't watched it again. slightly different, but maybe that's just semantics :) - holly #ravingfangirl
I am Legend. Kids is a good runner up. - Jenny from Android
I've that way with Eraserhead, Holly. I was just disturbed by it, so I don't want to watch it again, but didn't feel what I would term 'moved.' - Jennifer Dittrich
yes, Jennifer, that's it exactly. - holly #ravingfangirl
I was greatly disturbed by both "Requiem for a Dream" and "American History X", and I haven't ever watched them again even though I thought they were great movies, but I'm not really sure if this means I would never watch them again. - Victor Ganata
"Life Is Beautiful" left me pretty distraught. After that I don't watch movies that will leave me distraught. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
What Dreams May Come is the only film I could never watch again, it upset and moved me that much. Anything else, I can (and have) watch repeatedly. Requiem For a Dream is a frequent rewatcher for me. - Hookuh Tinypants
Definitely gotta be "Blades of Glory". - royce
Requiem for a Dream I can watch again too. It's moving but didn't make me not want to ever watch it again. I want to see A Clockwork Orange though. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
I don't think I could watch Schindler's List again (though I saw it twice). Most other movies I wont watch are for the grossness. - Heather
Haven't heard from Chadwick in forever and when I do he cracks me up. - Mary Carmen
Dancer in the Dark is brutal. - Jason from iPhone
Gone With The Wind and Birth of a Nation. Those films should be buried under NORAD. - ♫Maurice the Trainer♫ from iPod
Amistad - Mary Carmen
Charlotte's Web. :( - The First NoeLB
Grave of the Fireflies, Life is Beautiful. - Laura
Yep, Requiem for a Dream. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
This is a great way to find out what not to watch when you're feeling a bit fragile! - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Let me add another: Xiu Xiu The Sent Down Girl. - Absentee
Also, Dead Man Walking. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
The Passion of The Christ. - Melly Claus from fftogo
The Getaway - particularly the Alec Baldwin/Kim Basinger remake - Ciaoenrico
Oh, and Dancer In The Dark - Absentee
This is true for me of most war movies. I don't need to see Saving Private Ryan again and I remember crying a lot at Terms of Endearment as a kid but have never gone back to watch it. - Jason Toney
The Mission - Kirsten from fftogo
Clockwork Orange, but not "moved and agree on "Dancer in the Dark"....Radio Flyer. - Gabrielle
In the Company of Men and Jude. - Kisha from FFHound!
Muriel's Wedding - laura x
I would also say Avatar because it made me so angry. - Joe "The Anvil" Pierce
Dancer In The Dark. can barely make it thru Selmasongs without losing it. still. 11 years later... - Lnorigb
Grave of the Fireflies for sure, and La historia oficial really got to me as well. I totally bawled at both of them, and I rarely cry at movies. - Jenthemum
Shoot the Moon - Friar Will
Hunger and The Pianist. - Elizabeth Brown
Actually, I've never gotten past the part where o'Donnell dies in Fried Green Tomatoes. If I cry that much in the first 5 minutes of a movie, Im not even going to try to make it to the end. - ωαřмaiden ❤Bassetmom❤
Beaches. If you bring me to your house and start that movie, I will walk home. Period. - Just another Bubba
With Jandy & Katy S on this one....Just like watching flicks over and over... - CarlC
Kids, Requiem for a Dream, 8MM - Nathan Chase from iPhone
Lilja 4-Ever :( - Elina Katariina Leppänen
Schindler's List. I saw that once back in college but haven't been eager to re-watch it. Seven Pounds is one I saw a few months ago that I wouldn't want to see again. Precious is yet another one - good, compelling story, but just so much going on there. Wow. - Daniel Johnson, Jr.

I have never had my Android crash, even with experimental ROMS and crap on it, but I guarantee you I speak to at least 20 people per day with an iPad, iPod, or iPhone that has suddenly frozen up and has to be hard reset.
Just something that struck me today. Not trying to make any grand statement or anything. - Rahsheen
My HTC Aria has frozen. I've had to reboot. Probably only 3 times total since I've had her, though. Not rooted. No ROMs. I wish I'd had your luck, Rah... - Lisa L. Seifert
I had freezing issues when I was jailbroken, or I had my iPhone loaded to the max with content. It's all anecdotal, really. I haven't heard anyone complain about their Windows Phone locking up, but, who has a Windows phone? - Mike Nayyar
I assume you are doing tech support... Which is like a mechanic saying his car never breaks down but spends all day fixing other people's cars :) - Johnny from iPhone
I've had all my phones lock up on me. Moreso with the Galaxy Tab lately but I use it a lot more. I hardly ever had to do a hard reset on the iPad but I mostly just use Safari. Safari crashes all the time. - Rodfather
LOL@Mike.I think it's more like a mechanic saying "I sure do work on a lot of toyotas" and then some comment about his non-toyota never breaking down ;) - Rahsheen
Should have kept my mouth shut. Phone just rebooted for no reason. LOL. - Rahsheen
:) - Johnny from iPhone
I figured something wasn't right when random apps started force closing, but I chalked it up to this Cyanogen RC2 Gingerbread ROM. - Rahsheen
I only have to reboot it when certain apps misbehave and don't yield the cpu. But I think I could've killed those too if I tried hard enough. - Morton Fox
I've never had an iPhone crash since the very early days. - Tinfoil 2.0
My wife's Android phone has locked up and had numerous issues caused by apps. It also gets very slow and unresponsive at times. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
I've had old iPod Classics and iPod Nanos crash, lock up, and need hard resetting lots of times, but those were mostly preludes to total hardware failure. But I haven't had any issues with iOS devices yet. *crosses fingers* - Victor Ganata
Mine did once. - Anika
I think I've had to hard reboot my iPhones 5 times in 3 years. Maybe. Possibly less. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
Also, Rah, wondering how many of the 20 people every day (really?) who have to reboot their iPhones have jailbroken them. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
I would assume a tiny percent as most people who jailbreak would probably not need to call Apple support to figure out how to hard reset it. - Rahsheen
I have odd issues from time to time (HTC Incredible). I just reboot. - jbrotherlove
I don't think I've ever had my iPhone crash. *shrug* - Derrick

Red and Wuthering Heights this week for me. - Amani
Good choices, for sure. I think Red is in my top 50 of all time...I'd have to check Flickchart. *checks Flickchart* Yep, #27. I guess I must really like it. :) - Jandy
Yep. so far you are like 8 for 8 with me. I think you are steering me in the right direction. - Amani
I'm going with Red and Room With A View (which, for some odd reason, I don't think I've seen - not sure, but I'll have to watch to see). - Tinfoil 2.0
OK ... so I really liked "Red" but it left me wanting more in the end. It just ended like that? So I may need to watch the first two to understand more, right? - Amani
I watched Red first too based on this, then Blue then White. They each stand alone and are quite different, though it's interesting when there are, um, let's just say themes that cross over. I've got Double Life of Veronique queued up next, I love this guy now :) - Tinfoil 2.0
OK... I will find Blue and White. I hope it is on DirecTv or Netflix instant queue. - Amani
I love the Trois Couleurs trilogy which represent what the French flag stands for: liberty, equality, and fraternity. My favorite is Blue. - Shevonne
oh, love the trilogy. Blue is probably my favorite also. - holly #ravingfangirl

Bike the Vote! LA City Council Elections are March 8th « LA County Bicycle Coalition www.la-bike.org
"Tuesday, March 8th is Election Day in the City of Los Angeles, and in all even-numbered council districts folks have been busy campaigning. In order to learn where each candidate stands on bicycle issues, we sent a survey out to all of the candidates. Our goal with the survey was to not only provide information to the voting and bicycling public, but to help educate the candidates about some of the issues we have in the city regarding bicycles. This also provides a tool that allows us, as a community, to hold them accountable if they’re elected. We received responses from several of the candidates, but unfortunately, not all candidates responded as we had hoped. We realize that this low response rate means that we have lot of work to do to better educate and engage the candidates about the importance of biking (and walking) in order to make this a more effective tool for future elections in the City of LA and around the county. We hope that by doing candidate surveys, we can change... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet

I've had a string of bad heist movies lately. Recommend to me a good heist movie.
The Spanish Prisoner - RAPatton
The Thomas Crown Affair (New one) - Alex Scrivener
A Fish Called Wanda - RAPatton
The Usual Suspects - RAPatton
I've seen all of those except The Spanish Prisoner. I'll look it up. - James Ferguson
To Catch a Thief - RAPatton
The Spanish Prisoner is a Mamet film with a strong cast, but it might not Heisty enough for you - RAPatton
Payback - Alex Scrivener
The Heist - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Ocean's 11 (the new one) - Scoble, Alex Scoble
The Hot Rock. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
I really liked Payback. I watched the director's cut version. - James Ferguson
The Bank Job - Scoble, Alex Scoble
It might not be great, but you might like Kelly's Heroes if you haven't seen it. - RAPatton
Inside Man - cdogzilla | downgraded
It's not really a heist movie, but Ronin is excellent and has some of the qualities of one - Scoble, Alex Scoble
RocknRolla - Alex Scrivener
Rififi - Tinfoil 2.0
Run Lola Run - Yeah, it's not a heist film... but I didn't really know of any heist films and just kinda wanted to help out. - SAM
Not a heist, but Layer Cake is a gangster film by Matthew Vaughn that you might like. - RAPatton
Reservoir Dogs - Tinfoil 2.0
No one's mentioned Inception, but I assume you've seen it. - Tinfoil 2.0
Not a movie, but there was a BBC show called Hustle about a group of con artists. Each episode was a different con. As a fellow lover of heist movies I recommend it. - Corinne L
I've seen a lot of these but thank you for the suggestions. I've never seen Takers. The Town was great. - James Ferguson
The original Italian Job. Big Deal on Madonna Street. Topkapi. And I second Rififi. And The Great Escape isn't a heist movie, but it plays like one in reverse. - Jandy
Heat or Ronin are both still excellent choices. - Nathan Chase from iPhone
Is there a "Heist" sub-genre option in FlickChart? - James Ferguson

Nice. I'm going to look these up. Thanks Flickchart! - James Ferguson
Finished Maroc 7 the other day and watched Asphalt Jungle tonight. I think I prefer the former. Jungle was good, but the acting was so overwrought. Maroc 7 was fun and had great lines. - Anika from Android
Michelle Jones
Your favorite songs with female vocals that damn near breaks your heart every time you hear it (either from lyrics or sheer beauty); Go!
Don't have any. - Alex Scrivener

Understandable. - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist from iPhone
Oh, good grief. How could I forget the biggest and best one: Sia — Breathe Me. I can't listen to it. Simply cannot. If it comes on the radio or in a commercial, I turn the channel or mute the volume until its gone. Holy moly. - Akiva

Is Borders Closing a Store Near You? Here’s the Full List - Deal Journal - WSJ - http://blogs.wsj.com/deals...
Is Borders Closing a Store Near You? Here’s the Full List - Deal Journal - WSJ
"Borders filed for bankruptcy protection this morning, and said it will close at least 200 stores, plus the option for about 75 more — or about 30% of the company’s total. The list of store closures includes locations from Alaska to Florida, to Borders’ home state of Michigan. In a court filing, an adviser for Borders said the stores slated for closure, plus others, are costing Borders about $2 million a week in losses." - Morton Fox from Bookmarklet
Bummer, we are losing both of our Border's stores, and as Brick and Mortar stores go I always liked them. Often for date night, we would just go there for part of the evening and read. - RAPatton
I'm actually surprised we're not losing ours. - Jennifer Dittrich
The one in downtown Seattle is staying open, which is unsurprising: it's always packed. - Akiva
Looks like Colorado is losing several stores but ours is safe - Elena
Huh. Both of the stores in SA are being kept, but Austin is losing three. - Steven Perez
The closest one to me closed a while ago. - John (bird whisperer)
There's a big one here in New Orleans on St. Charles in what probably used to be a nice home with columns a la The White House. And yep, it's closing. - Derrick
The one in Alameda, CA is closing. - vicster: hon. canadian
All of ours are closing except one over 10 miles away in a direction we never go. :( Kinda irritating that last week they were hard selling us to upgrade to the Borders Plus thing. - Alix May
Sadly, yes, right after the Christmas season for us here. - Melanie Reed
Looks like the ones I generally go to are safe; still bummed that the B&N across the street from me closed at the end of last year. - Jandy
I liked Borders. B&N I could live without. Unhelpful. Predatory practices on students in their University partnerships - Melanie Reed
Borders is better for buying. B&N is better for sitting and reading (comfier chairs). - Jandy
The ones in Emeryville and Palo Alto are staying open. I prefer B&N to Borders anyway. The selection at B&N appears to be by intelligent people (or maybe algorithms), at Borders it seems thrown together by people who don't know what they're doing. - Ruchira S. Datta
They are closing the one on St Charles Ave in NOLA too http://blog.nola.com/interac... They just built that place! What a bummer. - RAPatton
Interesting, Ruchira - I've had the opposite experience. If I'm looking for something in particular and it isn't on the best-seller list, chances are much higher that Borders will have it. Seems like Borders tends to buy fewer copies of more stuff and B&N buys more copies of less stuff. I used to hit Borders all the time to get lit-crit books for school, and B&N never had anything beyond Harold Bloom. Might depend on your field, though, I guess. - Jandy
Aw crap, the one around me is closing. The one near my parent's isn't though. - Heather
Jandy, same here. Maybe its location specific, Ruchira - Melanie Reed
Boo :( The closest one to me is closing. I admit I go to B&N more but it was always nice to know there was another choice - Tamara, #TeamMarina
Melanie & Jandy, that could very well be. - Ruchira S. Datta

Film on TV: February 14-20
I'm going with and The Diving Bell and the Butterfly & Metropolitan, but also reinstating my Renoir autorecord wishlist to catch Grand Illusion. Watched Red last night (really good)... now have to see Blue and White... oh, and The Double Life of Veronique. - Tinfoil 2.0
I'm going Casablanca (shhhhhh) and Au Revoir this week. still have others on the DVR from last week. - Amani
Glad you liked Red, LogEx. Definitely go for Veronique next - it also stars Irene Jacob. White is my least favorite of the Three Colors trilogy, but it's still good. Blue took some time to simmer in my head before I warmed to it, but it's definitely up there now. If you liked Red, I don't think you'll be disappointed with Diving Bell, either - kind of a similar feel between Kieslowski and Schnabel. Amani, both good choices. :) - Jandy
