Why yes, IC -- in The River Wild, with Meryl Streep. (And I didn't even have to look at IMDB.com! :)
Has Kevin Bacon ever worked with David Strathairn...?
Anyhoo, thanks for the SGUH and generous comments (and emails from some of you, which I've yet to read, but will ASAP; gosh, I hate being offline for a week at a time!), and for your patience, etc., with yours truly. No, really -- thanks!
"The 'Burgh", miss sunshine, is Pittsburgh, which is where my parents live and where I just came back from visiting for the past week. Highlights: a visit to Primanti's for a sweet sausage sandwich (and chili, too!), and getting ideas for storage solutions at IKEA. (Yes, my life really is that superficial right now that those were the highlights.)
(where is the 'burgh?)
In Cafe-related news, I'm so sorry to hear your news about your friends, fwmom. That's incredibly sad.
As for your question about a bigger-capacity TiVo, fw, I've had similar thoughts recently, since I also just bought the same 40MB version that you have -- but I've decided that I'm going to keep it, and then augment it with a recordable DVD deck in a couple years after a) the electronics industry finally reaches a consensus about the next-generation DVD format, and b) the prices on such devices come down more.
Speaking of electronic devices (oh, no -- not that kind, ajra! Get your mind out of the gutter! ;), my brother's home theater system? Un. F*cking. Believable. Five MartinLogan electro$tatic $peaker$ (!!!!!) -- yup, two of their medium-size towers for surround channels! -- and absolutely primo deluxo electronics for the amp, DVD player, etc. (And a lovely Sony WEGA TV, too.) We watched the extended version of The Two Towers, and for the entire duration, I just could not believe how good it sounded, and how beautiful it looked. And I thought my setup at the Tate Estate was nice. Sheesh!
In still other Cafe-related business, to move or not to move, eh, Doctor Funk? Hard to say -- I can see all kinds of pluses or minuses either way. But I guess what it would come down to for me is that if things didn't work out, I could always move back -- so since you're askin', I'd say go for it, bay-bee! And please do keep us updated -- many of us here (oh, wait -- only me? Okay, then.) are living our dreams vicariously through you! (Also? I cut 'n' pasted what you said about depression, because it was really poignant. So... thanks!)
BTW, I've never seen Footloose, and I don't really have any desire to. (Although I'm not actively avoiding ever seeing it, as is the case with Beaches. :) Speaking of fillums, my fave of this past year -- the tragically undermarketed, underseen, eentsy-teentsy indie Raising Victor Vargas -- made New York Times critic Elvis Mitchell's Top Ten of 2003 list. Woo-hoo! [*insert umpteenth reminder to fellow Cafe patrons to please, please go rent Raising Victor Vargas here*]

*waves to our very own globetrotting rachem, too, just for fun*
Well, I could go on about movies and home entertainment gear and sexual identity crises all day, but for now, it's good to be back, hope to see y'all here in (what I sincerely hope for all of us is a very healthy, happy) 2004, and...
*banner unfurls from ceiling that says...*
