Man, I'm usually up for a good stromboli. Any recommendations up in the Bronx, B?

2) No, not that I know of. I do remember seeing some old movies at St. Mark's though in the mid-80s. Then in college, early '90s I took my girlfriend there to see Raging Bull and Taxi Driver. Terrible prints but I always thought it was a cool, cozy space.

1] if you are into traveling, try Nicoboli in Ocean City MD.

2) Alex - the marquis sign has one of the great "lost" classics of all time: Who'll stop the rain. As I recall it, Nick Nolte plays a Vietnam vet who gets pulled into a drug deal by his pall, plaed by Michael Moriority, and then runs off with pal's wife, played by Tuesday Weld. Soundtrack by CCR.

3) It's a really good movie. And based on Robert Stone's novel, "Dog Soldiers."

I've been fortunate to know Ann for nearly 20 years (she's also a tournament Scrabbler). Quite the interesting personality . . . definitely a child of the 60s.

5) Well, thank you so much for hipping me to her pictures. Us, I should say. She's so talented.
