In my quest to see all movies with Viggo Mortensen in them I just saw Carlito’s Way, starring Al Pacino. I have no idea how I had not seen this before. It is very interesting because many of the main characters are supposedly hispanic, but are played by non-hispanics. Why didn’t they use hispanic actors? Only Luis Guzman – from Puerto Rico – was of proper heritage. “http://www.lisashea.com/hobbies/viggo/films.html”Viggo Mortensen Film Listing
As I’m working on my 4th book – Weddings and Courtships of Native Americans – I’m watching as many movies involving Native Americans as I can. Here’s my current list – let me know if there are any more out there!
I used to write quite a lot of haiku in the late 80s through mid 90s. I went through and posted some of my haiku on the site here. Enjoy!
We have now had our Roomba robotic vacuum cleaner for over 4 months. It has been a true dream. Every day it picks up a ton of cat fur – it is just amazing how much it finds just in one day. We just wake up to a clean house with no work at all. Check out the photos and videos!
Most westerns are about men and the wide open spaces. With Broken Trail, the story is just as much about the women who try to carve out a living in the old west.
Reboot 22 Day 1 –
Well, it was the mess that did me in again. I was in the kitchen climbing past Bob’s amplifier and over the Dremel tool we were using to wire up my photos for my photo show, to get to my morning shake. I got in OK, but on the way out I tripped and banged my knee fairly hard. So first I let loose with some oaths, which I don’t count as complaining as that is “pain reaction”. But then I got into muttering about the mess, which is more in the complaining department :). It shows again, if we’d just keep the mess down, I wouldn’t be triggered by it.
And the mess *was* down only a few weeks ago when we had friends visit – so this is all new mess. Which I think is part of what frustrates me. No need for dremel tools and amplifiers in the kitchen!
So starting the counter again at day one 🙂
