Oh, I love silent fight scenes like that. I'm assuming it's (Haywire) on the netflix? I'm attempting to put together a short movie list for tonight to watch while I wait to wash out the henna mud in my hair.

Makes driving difficult.
Getting a blowjob on the way back from seeing films like Caligula is simply de rigueur. (Didn't the book American Gods open with a blowjob-related decapitation? Or was that another Gaiman book..)

It was my first so it'll always stand out. I'm trying like **** to remember what the hell the car model was. Definitely had steering wheel clearance.

Ya, AG had a DBJ that ended badly.

EDIT: Not my first BJ. Just the first while going 65 MPH.

Innerspaceboy, have you seen The Ghost & Mrs Muir? If you haven't then you absolutely must, since you also enjoy old-timey films of yore. It's about a grumpy sea captain ghost who throws tantrums over Gene Tierney's boyfriends (in a nutshell). Not too unlike Rebecca in terms of the passive-aggressive ghost thing-- but much more lighthearted and romantic.

I have seen it approximately eleventy-billion times. I'm unfortunately the only person in the Ghost & Mrs. Muir fandom.

Whimsical car sexcapades are always much harder than the TV shows and movies portray, for sure.

Dude, nice. Yeah, anime dubs used to be the pits. I'm generally a sub man, and a lot of it is because of just how bad dubs used to be, but they're way better now than they used to be. I still generally watch subs just cause Japanese voice actors are still better, but the divide is getting slim enough that I can usually do one or the other and be fine. The American talent pool is also smaller, so you often end up hearing the same voice actors in anime after anime, which can be a tad distracting.

If you need any recs then I got you. I've been on an anime binge myself recently so I've got it on the mind. If you haven't seen Cowboy Bebop already then I'd definitely suggest that next, and it's got a dub that is often considered even better than the Japanese version. And if you're interested in something with bizarro sci-fi, nihilistically dark psychological themes, Waking Life-esque scenes of existential bizarreness, demented religious iconography, all tied up into an anime that deconstructs shounen and giant robot anime, then Neon Genesis Evangelion is quite possibly the most essential anime ever made.

The Ghost & Mrs. Muir, you mean? (It WAS on netflix but they cruelly removed it recently.) I'll see if I can find a decent-quality stream) Was the show actually any good? I'm so emotionally invested and obsessed with the movie that I've always refused to see the TV adaptation.

Just in case you missed this while you were posting.
