Bogey Bonanza!

Last night was a good time to stay away from the computer and plant oneself in front of the TV instead. Check out this lineup on TCM last night:

The Maltese Falcon
I don't care who loves who. I won't play the sap for you.
I'm shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!
The Treasure of the Sierra Madre
Badges? We ain't got no badges. We don't need no badges. I don't have to show you any stinking badges.
And last but, ohmygod most definitely not least,

The African Queen
By the authority vested in me by Kaiser William II, I pronounce you man and wife. Proceed with the execution.
Sigh. Perhaps as a Christmas present to myself, I will finally break down and get that Tivo I've been wanting for so long. In the meantime, I must be happy with what comes across the screen at its scheduled time. Last night, I fell asleep at some point during the beginning of Casablanca, but with a big smile!

To the cable impaired, the list of truly vile movies on our broadcast "movie channel" in Iowa is soul-killing, not funny, shoot me now, awful.

But YOU have fun!

Yes indeedy! As a confirmed movie addict (cue my sons' eyes rolled skyward, coupled with Napoleon Dynamite sighs) I could not be without a TV and satellite services.
