Haha, yes being a former Christian I had heard that I share my name with Jesus. I am an Italian with a Hebrew first name, that was once Christian, now Atheist, and I'm gay! Life is funny sometimes isn't it?
Yes, AOL had notified its users that the "hometown" home pages would be discontinued, so I guess I should remove that URL from my A|N profile. Unfortunately, even though AOL told us how to save the profile info, I didn't do it before it was too late. I'll have to think about a profile I might be able to send you.
2) I checked the schedule for the current Lyric Opera of Chicago season, and they are not doing Rosenkavalier. I did see it there, quite a few years ago. I'll check out the schedule for next season when it's made public, this Spring.
3) Is there a way we can email each other directly, i.e. privately?
4) Need to mention: I am not sure that I'd count as as big a film buff as you are but I attend a film group here in our community that screens and discusses films once a week.
5) A Mexicophile, eh? Last winter I spent two weeks in Puerto Vallarta, sharing a rented condo, and would do it again if I could find someone to share with. (Last year's roomie says he can't go this year.)
Hi Jim! its nice to hear from you and your apreciation for México , is a very colorful surreal place, i have this hate-love relationship with my city... I live in coyoacán a very nice part of the city, with colonial buildings and little streets, almost like a little town in the middle of the city. Letme know you are here in your next visit I promise you a supertour ... what a nice post... Have fun!
I am seeking input from members on the history of atheism in the motion picture. I know Bunuel, Pasolini, others. Who do you think of as an atheist filmmaker? I think you could nominate people as disparate as Max Ophuls and Sam Pekinpah, for example, for various reasons. Who else?
