Heart Attack Imminent

Mark the time in your log. Note the velocity of the wind. Take stock of the temperature. Ensure whether or not the sky around you is sunny, cloudy or partly one or the other. Look at the person sitting next to you (but don't introduce yourself if you've never met him or her).

Is there a reason, you must be wondering, why I, your humble blogger, am asking you to do all this? I'll tell you why, because I'm doing all this right now.

Okay, but is there a reason, you're now asking, why your humble blogger is doing all this right now? Well, of course there is. I'm doing all this right now, dear friends, because it's happened. It's finally, finally, finally happened. I've pleaded with gods of cinema for they-and-I-don't-know-how-long but either I've worn them down to the point of giving up or they've just decided to be nice. (Maybe they let it slip through the cracks unwittingly, I don't know). But the day has arrived. Well, it hasn't arrived yet, I should say. It arrives later this month. But it will arrive. Oh yes, it will. Glory hallelujah. Hark the herald angels sing.

"Chinatown", the greatest movie ever made, is coming to the big screen.
