The World is a Stage the Stage is a World of Entertainment

I just saw a movie, The Secret of Kells. And then I yammered about it. C'mon, it's a night.

Someone just wrote in and asked about my linking Catholicism, mysticism and fairies into one lump in the review. Please understand, I don't consider them of a piece. I'm not Evangelical, but I have a few friends who are Evangelicals and I know there are story elements in the movie they could find problematic; I wanted to give the heads-up.

I'm proud of having readers of every stripe, belief, and persuasion coming here and to You- Tube. My goal is to continue to create a party where everyone feels welcome and where I can make an idiot of myself.

Thank you for the review. I will watch for the movie to come to St. Louis. Maybe it will.

Do you remember a movie years ago called The Secret of Roan Inish? I felt the same way after I saw that.

Interesting....I'm intrigued. Although I do have to say I'm not sure what to think of the terms "Catholicism, mysticism, fairies" all in one sentence. I know, I can't please all of the people all of the time.

I adore your Q-Tea segments. And this is coming from someone who in the past has hated You Tube for many reasons. You are the best thing on there, Quinn.

Oh, wow, you just made me really, really homesick with that last shot. That was my theater! I love the indies they show. They also have really good pizza in the theater, not that you've ever posted on eating pizza. haha

Anyway, great review. I shall find where it's playing in NYC. I like how considerate you were with the warnings, too. Nothing offends me (well, except for eating animals, war and cruelty of any kind LOL), and I tend to be not as sensitive to some things that may offend others. It's refreshing. :-)

I'll keep an eye open for the movie. Should be playing somewhere in Toronto.

Didn't I see a blog about divorced parents? Didn't I make a comment and now there's nothing?
