Vincent Price and Boris Karloff. Of course, we were too busy 'making out' to watch the movies! That is, until the usher came by a shined the flashlight on us!

Yeah, I heard they have that feature now, but...
I just don't use it. I use yahoo, but very rarely. I forgot about that though.
Woolworth's 5&10, Sat.afternoon at the movies - 2 movies for the price of 1
Do you have Triple-A?
double (sm) I mean triple for me

Triple Ditto, nm
Agree. There's no way to do triple the amount
of lines on VR to keep your same amount of pay. VR takes too long to correct/edit. This is such a rip-off.
No - not worth 12 bucks an hour when you can make triple that by the line, sm
but that all depends on what company and VR platform you are talking about.
Oh horror, horror, horror! sm
Tongue nor heart cannot conceive nor name thee! (With apologies to Mr. Shakespeare.) I was just getting acquainted with DocShuttle when I retired, and it made me tear much of my hair out. If it's the same program. It may have changed in the last three years, but I wouldn't touch it with a 10-foot pole. :(
Sounds like the Amityville horror to me.
No horror story for me, but (see inside)
I did regain almost all of the weight I lost (100 pounds). They only operated on body, not my brain, and I am a grazer, which is the major way that weight is regained. But as a member of a large support group, I know many, many people for whom the surgery has been a lifesaver.

Have you checked out www.obesityhelp.com ? Tons of info there.
Do a search. The horror tales are true.
I would never have... too many horror stories from friends/instructors that did! nm
After reading all the horror stories on this board - sm
about the flaky way so many MTSO's operate, I think only the newest of the newbies would interview for a position without also interviewing ABOUT the position. It's a 2-way street, you know. If an MT is asking you questions up front, rather than waiting to find out AFTER hiring on with you that the job's not a good fit, that would waste time and money for both of you. It sounds like she looks before she leaps, and that she has a good head on her shoulders. She's obviously interviewing for more than one position, and doesn't want to go any further until she's also checked with a few more job possibilities. Judging by what you wrote in your post, my guess is she's experienced, and doesn't want to get the runaround at a poorly-run or fly-by-night operation.
I've heard other horror stories by adoptees.
Their families telling them they're lucky they got adopted and that they should be more grateful and what not. I swear, people should have to get a license before they become parents. I'll be the first to tell you I was not the best parent in the world, but at least I made sure my daughters knew they were wanted and loved - even during those rare times when they weren't! LOL.
I have a tattoo horror story I've been waiting to tell.
It's a bit off color and subject, but it has the word tattoo in it.  Now's as good a time as any.  I once met an Indian man ((feathers, not dots)) that had a tattoo that was evidently a woman's name on his shoulders - from side to side in very BIG letters.  I know the letters were bigger than my hand from tips to wrist.  Okay, I had to ask, and he tole me he had broken up with her, so he took an iron and burned the letters from his shoulders.  I don't know if you know about Indians and keloid scars...needless to say, it was a scar of EPIC proportions.  I was sooooo sorry I asked.    We're a passionate people. 
I thought the network had mistakenly cut to a horror film
Havn't seen a horror movie sinceSilence of the Lambs. I don't find them
We actually had some old 8 mm movies...

put on video (some years back) and they must have thought we were a bunch of hicks because to go along with our vintage 1960s era Christmas morning movie, they put the movie to music, of all things, Turkey In The Straw.  I actually went on E-bay and bought an old projector that plays 8mm and super 8mm and we watch all the old movies on an old projector.  It's fun, but I know they will deteriorate eventually.  Nothing more weird than seeing my mother at age 27 (5 yrs before I was born), dragging on a cigarette.  She quit when I was 3, so I have no memory of this.  Old movies are so much fun.

He has been in a lot of movies and was
voted People Magazines Sexiest Man Alive this year.
That's a difficult one - probably would include From here to eternity (the original), i'm telling my age!   Cape Fear, urban cowboy!
fav movies
1. The Frenchman and the Beautician
2. Top Gun
3. Meet The Fockers

I also loved history of violence, I didn't think I liked that main guy in an old movie, but he was quite good! And I think william hurt played an excellent mean person (is that a compliment??)
I think it's because he's doing too much. Look at how many movies he's made in the last fe
all in a row.  Plus, the divorce surely is adding to that.  As far as Angelina, don't blame her.  If Brad was in love with his wife, he wouldn't have strayed.  Plus, it obviously isn't just an "affair."  It seems they are developing a relationship.  Also, don't forget, Angelina was the victim of a cheating husband and had her heart broken, so she knows that pain.  I think Brad and Jennifer spent too much time apart.  And he does have a history of falling in love with his co-stars - Gwyneth and Juliette to name two. 
Seen any good movies lately?
I liked The Pacifier and National Treasure.  We are planning on having an outdoor movie night using a white sheet nailed to the side of the house and a projector to the DVD player on the computer, but I can't think of anything good to rent.
Scary movies
Creature From The Black Lagoon.

The original Phantom of the Opera with Lon Chaney.
Pay per view movies
Our pay per view channels are the 100's.  Your system might be different.  Our system is supposed to be connected to a phone line always, but a lot of the time it is not.  We can usually still order movies with our remote.  My SIL only has a cell phone now, so I do not know how she does it.  We select the channel with the movie that we want.  Press info.  You can arrow up to exit if you do not want to purchase the program, or press menu to purchase the program.  Our system is older, so yours may work a little differently.  W have learned to be very careful because it is easy to order a movie that you really do not intend to.  Sometimes you can go into purchases and cancel.  With some things, you cannot.  My husband, who is very technically challenged, sat there one night and accidently surfed where he did not belong and accidently rented some kind of special adult presentation.  We immediately tried to cancel, but were unable to do so.  You can also go online to rent a movie, which is also easy, or you can do so by phone. 
when movies were 25 cents and you could...sm

send 10 letters thru the post office on $1.00


geesh - I'm older than dirt.......*LOL* 

Drive in Movies sm
I remember as a kid going to the drive-in movies with my mom hiding us in the backseat so as not to have to pay for all of us.

As a kid I remember the amusement truck coming around and we could take a ride on the "whip" for $0.25.

I remember when it was legal to open the fire hydrant and get wet during hot summer days. (Yes, I lived in a "city").

I remember "Happy Days" was the hit show when I was a teen and the boys tried to look and be like the "Fonze".

I also remember as a teen, a bag of Doritos was $0.25.

Can you guess my age?
(Hint - between 37 and 39) LOL.
I love old movies too...

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

Barefoot In The Park

Gone With The Wind...I love them all!

Well, I like his movies, so neener.
How do you order movies from Direct TV?
I'm a fairly new subscriber to Direct TV and up until now when we wanted to watch a movie, we would just go to the video store and rent one.  I know Direct TV lets you order those movies from them and they put it on your bill and you get to watch the movie when you want to.  Do any of you do this and do you find it more convenient/more expensive?  Also, do you have to have a phone line to do this?  Exactly how does it work?  Thank you for the info and feeling a little dumb having to ask!
what are your favorite top 3 movies of all time?
1. A River Runs Through It
2. The Notebook
3. Bladerunner
Some older movies, but good ones...

The Life of David Gale...excellent movie...Kevin Spacey, I think...

Mona Lisa Smile...Julia Roberts...I really liked this one, so did my teenage daughter...

Forrest Gump, of course, one of my all-time favorites...we all know who he is (and the soundtrack is awesome)!!!

Have a lovely weekend...

Movies that are so bad they're good.
I'm gonna check that one out. I love movies like that. Nicholas Cage in Vampire's Kiss - same story, very young, bad movie, but boy did he give it his all. Talk about over acting.
Jack Nicholson movies
He is my favorite actor and starred in two of the funniest movies I ever saw: Goin' South (which he also directed) and The Fortune (with Warren Beatty)--both hard to find but absolutely hilarious!
You want strange movies - check out the
Joaquin Phoenix and Vince Vaughn was really a good one.  Also, I happened to come across a movie about 3 or 4 years ago that turned out to be one of my favorites - Last of the Dogmen with Tom Berringer and Barbara Hersey - I HIGHLY recommend this movie - It's not a war movie but I don't want to tell you what it's about because it would ruin the surprise.
Typing Captions for TV&Movies
Does anyone here type captions?  I want to know more about this, as I was watching TV w the captions on and wondering who types the words.   I wonder if you just get to watch TV and type what you hear all day long...that would be so sweet. 
true, true but out of about 90 flicks....1 or 2...nm

totally agree on Heston movies....nm
jodie foster. Love all her movies

I was watching one of the Freddy movies where the girl was pregnant.
Anyway, I slept in the basement and my parents slept upstairs. It was about midnight when I was watching this Nightmare on Elm Street movie. Our dogs were in the kennel next to my bedroom and started whining. I heard something thump in the ceiling of my bedroom, so I hightailed it upstairs to sleep on the couch. The next morning, we saw what looked like a coiled up snake inside the fluorescent light fixture in my bedroom. It was a studded dog collar and a rusty butcher knife inside the fixture. How it got there, we don't know but it wasn't there before I watched the movie. We can only guess that someone or something was after me that night. I stopped watching scary movies for about 15 years after that. Now, to see snippets of the Nightmare movies, they're so lame and fake.
Watch the original, its funny too- one of my favorite movies - sm
George Segal and Jane Fonda-- curious about the remake.
Same theme, but CBS on Wed. is to review the top 100 inspirational movies. Should be good! nm
How could you forget Tom Hanks?? I've loved all of his movies
what F9 feature? the only thing F9 does
that I am aware of is take us to screen to get line counts ??
New Search Feature (sm)
Is it possible to display the dates of the posts in the search results?  If not, add to wishlist?
There is a compatibility feature

There is a compatibility feature with Vista, or so they claim.  It's all in this Q&A piece in the Times here.  I think you might have to register for the Times to read this link but it's got some good info



I like the Glossaries feature sm
I can make separate glossaries for each separate hospital and then it doesn't crowd the main glossary. Also, if I leave an MTSO, I can just delete that glossary without losing all my main entries.
