Will this never end? My toe is bloated, though i've been able to take some of the medication left from my last attack of gout, and the throbbing, stabbing pain has lessened. But i'm going crazy! I watched all the DVDs and tapes for the IFP: now i've got to write up the reports. I started looking at the scripts for ACV: should have that done by the end of today. So i guess i'm getting work done, but this homebound crap is driving me nuts.

Watched Dame Elizabeth Taylor on Larry King Live. I still think it's freaky, but that's how he introduced her, as Dame Elizabeth Taylor. Next month on TCM, the guest programmer will be Mia Farrow, and she'll be introducing "Rashomon" and "The Exterminating Angel" and "Fanny and Alexander". Mia Farrow's taking the high road, though it might have been cute if she introduced something like "David Copperfield" (the movie that her godfather, George Cukor, directed with her mother) or "A Streetcar Named Desire" (which starred Vivien Leigh, her mother's friend from boarding school) or "The Big Clock" (the movie directed by her father which costarred her mother). Now if TCM could unearth the original cut of "Secret Ceremony"....

Since i missed the screenings of "Blow Up" and "Cronaca di un Amore", i might watch the DVDs of those movies today. Actually, i might watch "La Notte", though i wish that film would get the full Criterion treatment.

It's Katie Couric's last day on the Today Show, and they're milking it!

Michael Giltz was one of the only people i know who reviewed "The Wind That Shakes the Barley" from Cannes (he thought it was "superb"), so chalk one up for Michael, because it won the Palme d'Or!
