mda19083: rush – happy monday

Jack: I lie near Bethany Beach, DE

Mike avec Rachel en DC: Yes. We live in Columbia Heights if you know DC…we’re about a 40 min walk from the Washington monument

Rush: You can see it from you home, Mike?

Jack: Sure. I grew up in the MD suburbs

Matt1: Originally from Philadelphia, but now in St Ptersburg, FL

Mike avec Rachel en DC: OK. Rachel grew up near Annapolis, and her folks are in “northern” Maryland so we’re almost neighbors

Jack: Nice Matt

Jack: We are close

Matt1: I have family in Dover, DE

Rush: GS is now living in DE.

Mike avec Rachel en DC: If we walk to the corner, yes Rush. Fun DC fact: It’s against the law to build anything taller than the Washington monunment

Jack: The Delaware beaches have been home for 23 years. Nice Matt- I know Dover a bit as well

Rush: Good law, Mike!

Mike avec Rachel en DC: Rach says she was to Bethany Beach many times as a kid. Now we usually go to Ocean City

Rush: It would take a tall structure to match that.

hounder has joined this room

Rush: It amazes me how that was built back in the day!

Mike avec Rachel en DC: I think that’s why DC feels so open. Lots of sunlight

Jack: It does?

Dona: Hello Jack. Nice to have you with us

Rush: What we do, Jack, is we pause our personal copy of tonight’s movie at the OPENING TITLE.

Jack: Ok

hounder: our temps here are yo yoing. 80 2 days ago. 50 today, 70 tomorrow

Matt1: It’s crazy Hounder

mda19083: we start at the sound of the gong

Rush: Yes, MDA.

Jack: So after the Fox opening if there is one

Rush: Our snow is nearly melted away.

Fredsmom: Are you and your family enjoying Iowa Rush?

mda19083: Jack – FYI it is a silent gong

l’angel et napoleon fox: H, that’s a comfortable range to yo in. Here in Boston we’ve neared & maybe passed zero, & tonite it’s mid-20s. Brrrrr! Fox fur REQUIRED!!

Rush: yes, jack. Just pause at the “Charlie Chan in Paris” title.

Jack: lol

Jack: ok Rush

mda19083: did someone say white fox fur

Matt1: <slap>

Rush: AH!

l’angel et napoleon fox: Our ears have perked, mda!!

Rush: That is one of our running “gags,” Jack.

Jack: slap?

Rush: “The white fox fur statement from “Charlie Chan at the Olympics”

Jack: or white fox fur

Mike avec Rachel en DC: Angel, it looks like Fox is all set with the fur. What will you do?

Jack: ok

Dave: fox fur is hard to avoid

Rush: Each time a fur is spotted onscreen, the comment will come up!

Jack: haha

mda19083: jack – you will love the running gags

Jack: I’m sure

hounder: brrrrrr f n a

mda19083: or not

l’angel et napoleon fox: FOX FUR! FOX FUR!!

Rush: Also, we used to have sound effects available at a previous Chat Room, and we used those liberally!

Jack: Question… if I was going to use the link for the film, does it open in a separate screen?

Jack: or tab?

Rush: So. now, you will see an occasional “sound” spelled out!

Rush: Such as (cough…) when someone smokes.

Jack: Haha

Matt1: CC at Circus was FUN

Dave: Any way to hook everyone up to a zoom call to view together?

hounder: it depends on how you set it up jack.

l’angel et napoleon fox: M avec R: I expect to steal a stole. Fox traditionally shelters in place, leaving me to fend for myself.

Rush: 10 minutes to go, everyone…

Jack: Ok- I wasn’t sure if it came up in this black space to the right of the chat

hounder: lol@anf

Godwinshelley2: Yes I know Harlan – it is a small community

Jack: The drunk

Rush: The obnoxious Max Corday….

Fredsmom: me too Jack

Dave: Time for a drunk guy!

l’angel et napoleon fox: Love the Drake. Hate the Corday.

Godwinshelley2: Did you know Stephen Amrhein at the Peabody?

l’angel et napoleon fox: FROG MARCH!

Nothere: Nver viva la penguin march.

Rush: Just a polite sip by CC.

l’angel et napoleon fox: You could seat the bank in the open salon there.

Rush: Oui, NT!

Mike avec Rachel en DC: Yes, GS. I asked her what he did. Her answer: “I’m not sure. He walked around and looked important.”

Jack: Perfect rendering

Rush: I suspect that Keye Luke drew that.

Jack: Me too Rush

Godwinshelley2: He worked in the Director’s office – I still talk with him from time to time

Fredsmom: really?

Rush: Le Singe Bleu.

l’angel et napoleon fox: Rush, you think that’s possible?

Godwinshelley2: And I talk with Doris Rohr from Financial Aid – and Betsy Nelson from Admissions

Mike avec Rachel en DC: Oof. ONE MORE “Danse Apache”

Rush: I apologize in advance to the ladies for the coming dance…

Jack: The Apache dancers soon

Nothere: Funny you should mention ads. Jut had one.

l’angel et napoleon fox: I think i’m behind. What’s the “time”, Chronos?

Rush: Chan notes this coincidence.

Jack: That beggar used to scare me when I was a kid

l’angel et napoleon fox: I’m at 9:30.

Rush: 9:45

Dave: Jack, me too

Godwinshelley2: Ah – well tell her hello from me – even though we didn’t really meet

Rush: Possibly, Angel!

Dave: Chiropractor appointments later…

Mike avec Rachel en DC: So Nardi’s gig was to be a spy and then do this wonky dance every night?

l’angel et napoleon fox: Dude looks like Carmen Sandiego.

Rush: We have to remember that they needed a dance where Nardi would “exit” the cafe.

Mike avec Rachel en DC: Will do. As you say, it’s small community

Jack: Yikes/!

l’angel et napoleon fox: M avec R: It would appear that was how he got the big francs.

Phil: That poor woman!

l’angel et napoleon fox: How much broken crockery they pitch every week?

Mike avec Rachel en DC: This dance takes a lot of athletic doing…it’s impressive for that

Jack: She must be black and blue

Rush: That is so.

Godwinshelley2: I was at Peabody from 1987 until 2001

l’angel et napoleon fox: We wouldn’t want to be in her stockings.

Dave: Hey, cut that out!

Jack: lol Davve

Rush: Note CC’s ring.

Mike avec Rachel en DC: Yes…you and Rach overlapped a couple of years. You probably organized her audition. Glad she got in. (Rach sez “Thanks!”)

Nothere: The ads obviously have me behind. I just sa a big ock fall from a clear night sky, as they do.

l’angel et napoleon fox: This is Keye’s apotheosis, yeah, Rush?

Godwinshelley2: WHY would Mrs Chan let Charlie go on vacation without her

Rush: “Joy in heart more desirable than bullet.”

Jack: The kids had to go to school?

Rush: “Thank you so much.”

Godwinshelley2: If you ask me, SHE is the one who needs a break – with that large amount of kids

l’angel et napoleon fox: Mrs. Chan was inscrutable, said the brawny sailors who plied their troth to her contempt.

Godwinshelley2: There are aunts who could watch them

Nothere: Yes, but they never stayed there. Chan ha to demand his money back.


l’angel et napoleon fox: Mae West woulda been great here.

Jack: Love the character actors

Nothere: Ho is son alloed better robe than pop?

Godwinshelley2: I like her hat matching her coat

l’angel et napoleon fox: Sometime i should make up fantasy cast lists for my favorite CC films, just to stretch my foxy mind.

Godwinshelley2: Though that collar wouldn’t be practical in the snow or rain

Jack: The Studio System was great. A ready stock company of actors on hand.

l’angel et napoleon fox: *puff* / *puff puff* / *puffpuffpuffpuffpuff*

Godwinshelley2: Her collar reminds me of the coat in BladeRunner

Dave: just an idea…

Jack: Nice wheels

l’angel et napoleon fox: The BLACK camel, not the BACK camel!

Rush: Home, James! – (Catchphrase) The original saying, dating from the mid-1800s and spoken to a coach driver, was supposedly “Home, James, and don’t spare the horses!” There was a 1934 song by Fred Hillebrand (1893-1963) with the same phrase as a title: Home, James, and Don’t Spare the Horses is the modern origin of the catchphrase; it was in general usage by the early 1930s.

Mike avec Rachel en DC: Sorry, m’lady. The Black Camel is out kneeling, unbidden, in front of a door somewhere.

Nothere: They’ll bid on the one in the back. I got it from Crazy Ali’s used camels. A to hump for the price of a one hump. He must be crazy.

l’angel et napoleon fox: Dave, that’s why the Spanish Inquisition is so often used as a decoy by the Monacan inquisitors.

Dave: He’s gone craaaaaazzzzyyy

Rush: Ominous form at the window…
