    Looks like a movie to watch, True Story…

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2273657/?ref_=nv_sr_1

    When disgraced New York Times reporter Michael Finkel meets accused killer Christian Longo – who has taken on Finkel’s identity – his investigation morphs into a game of cat-and-mouse.

    Storyline
    Jonah Hill plays Michael Finkel, a recently terminated New York Times journalist who’s struggling for work after a story gone wrong. One day, he receives a phone call from a man regarding an FBI Most Wanted individual named Christian Longo, who’s been captured and claimed to be living as Finkel. Longo and Finkel meet and form a potentially marriage shattering bond while Longo is in prison awaiting his trial. Finkel exchanges journalism tips for the real events behind Longo’s alleged heinous acts of murdering his family. Through the twists and turns in the movie, only at the end will Finkel uncover the True Story. Written by Mayor_G

    Terse Chemistry
    29 January 2015 | by SLUGMagazineFilms (United States) – See all my reviews
    In 2002, two seemingly unrelated events brought Christian Longo (Jonah Hill) and Michael Finkel (James Franco) into each other’s lives. While Finkel was getting fired from a writing gig at the New York Times for fabricating details about a cover story, Longo had murdered his family and fled the country. When Longo was finally apprehended, he gave the authorities Finkel’s name as his own. Based on Finkel’s memoir, True Story unpacks the bizarre details surrounding Finkel’s and Longo’s relationship and offers a contemporary version of Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood. The terse chemistry between Finkel and Longo is gripping to watch—it’s never quite clear who is using whom until the film’s final moments. These two actors deftly play out their characters’ battle for psychological dominance—Hill makes us feel Finkel’s inner turmoil, and Franco’s cool detachment is both alienating and alluring. Some praises also need to be sung about Felicity Jones, who plays Finkel’s quietly badass fiancée Jill. The scene in which she slices through the character insulation that Longo has built up around himself is a beautiful show of pure indignation. –Alex Springer

    Good morning, Deb! Funny photos today, KJ and MS! Love the kittypult…lol. My cats bird watching set up isn’t quite as perfect as it was in Lubbock. Can’t get the back yard feeder, the one the birds prefer, close enough to the sliding glass doors because of the lemon tree. But they do see them and chatter at them some and watch all sorts of bugs, squirrels, bunnies, feral cats, etc… They seem to enjoy looking out the front windows too even though not many birds come to that feeder.

    Hi everyone – what fun pics! No seed in the feeder here, the bears will be waking up soon if they haven’t already, and they’ll be hungry! We still have lots of birds that hang out in the yard and sing.
    Cloudy and chilly here in Jersey. Think I’ll head to the TDK lounge with a tall glass of pink lemonade. 🙂

    Needed to break my concentration off of all that’s going wrong & this definitely did it. MS it can’t get any funnier than your ‘Kiss It’ pic. I get the same treatment from a couple pigeons here when I look out to the birdfeeders. They knock half the seed out just trying to fit on the perches. I can’t stop giggling at that pic. After 3 yrs. of not getting used A new mama hummingbird is nesting in the front porch nest they made about 5 yrs. ago. She’s a little more spooked than the past mamas but getting better as she gets used to me. I can’t wait to be able to watch the little darlings when they hatch. It’s a very fast process & hope I don’t miss any of it. They usually hatch between 2-3 weeks after mama sitting on them & then about the same amt. of time b4 they leave the nest. Gotta go. Having major probs. getting truck to cooperate so it passes smog. Thanks for the smiles to start my day off. Hugs!!

    Late to Café but better late than never! Like that’s possible! LOL
    Love the pics, esp “kiss my A**” and the cat bird!
    Yes, I know we have all seen this pic, but it goes with Special Day theme as Dorry checking out Mr. Pigeon:
    Dorry_pigeon
    Kit playing with lego looks a bit like Dorry, ‘cept that my boy has equally placed “bullseye” tabby pattern on both hips. Would not let him play with lego, as it would result in myriad frantic calls to vet should a single piece be missing! 😯
    Another day over and expected stress. Did distract in spin class and hung out in locker room and with a group re the alleged firing of jerk spin instructor (yay!) radical protests from who cares and ope rant about some jerk participants. Then chatted with a lovely lady about how fun it is for some of us who love organizing closets, drawers etc.
    Came home to do vol translation job which kept mind well occupied as challenging. So hope that all had good day and yeah.

    Nice to see you Susie!
    I love hummingbirds! Their super fast wings are amazing. Don’t see them in my n’hood but when I was a kid in summer in country we had some who liked to hang around and sip nectar (I guess) from bleeding heart flowers.

    MS, if you happen by, I saw this and recalled your bra-sporting teddy:

    Now I do have leopard print tights and boy-cut undies. 😳 However no bra as not needed with my configuration LOL.
    Oh, and – just took peek outside and it’s snowing – just when I thought it was safe to stow boots away … 🙁

    Hi Everybody,

    Here’s a touch and go on a Hump Day evening to see how all are doing. It’s quiet here. The temp. is dropping and the wind is picking up.

    I don’t know about your bra wearing teddy MS, but I love this pic:

    Miss Gaea is demanding my lap so I gotta go.

    Have a happy~

    Such fun pics! It was windy around here today too, PG. KJ, no, not more snow!
    Leela is limping a bit, noticed it last night. She is favoring her right paw. It doesn’t look swollen. but when she gets into a good deep sleep perhaps I will be able to see something. I thought I felt each of her claws last night, so hoping none are ingrown. She may have strained/sprained it while jumping. She is so busy growling at Comet she doesn’t always pay attention to her moves to get away.

    Just catching up…Feral, how cool about the hummingbird nest! I’d love to see one someday. We did see babies last year so there must be nests in our neighborhood. We have wrens nesting, now feeding babies, in the eaves of our back patio. Been watching them since the nest building.

    Hope you figure out what’s up with Leela, Joan. Emily had a mysterious injury in Lubbock once…walked like her shoulders weren’t working. It was awful not knowing what was wrong. Vet was stumped. But she slowly got better over four weeks or so. I think she jumped down awkwardly from something. The doorbell had rung that day and there’s always a mad scramble to get under the bed.

    Such a sweet pic of Dorry, KJ. 🙂

    Hi all, great pics today, love the catbird.
    LOL at the pigeon pics and the cats wearing bras. Remember the fantastic Ginirosaru took of her cat ‘washing’ her bra in the toilet? I hope someone can post it here.
    You all seem to have such exoctic sounding birds feeding in your yards, I love reading about them.
    Susie, glad I made you laugh, I hesitated about posting that pic because of one word but decided to go for it anyway. Glad I did. Oh wow, a hummer nesting so close. Please keep us informed on how it’s all going Susie.
    Deb, I held my breath when the wee goat made it’s river crossing attempt. Phew ! Safe.
    Love the Legos, I got the lady scientist for eldest daughter so she can have it on her desk in her work lab.
    Awwww Leela, I hope you are ok.
    HRH is still worrying me a bit, she is suddenly very needy and wanting cuddles, I don’t know if she is ‘off colour’ or if there is another cat on her territory. I will be keeping a close eye on her.
    Heading to the TDK patio for a pink lemonade as even though it’s a dull grey day with the occasional spit of rain the humidity is high.

    Hi ECB & MS – that is indeed a nice pic of Dorry. I do have a vague recollection of a cat dropping a bra in a toilet!
    MS, that’s the reason I’m sipping pink lemonade on the TDK patio, it’s too dreary in Jersey!

    Joan, I’m pretty sure it was Feeny that was caught in the act of washing his Mama’s bra and she got a great pic of the incident. Just looking for it now on Cheezburger.
    Haven’t been able to find the pic but did find some hilarious past threads while I was checking my favourites. There was the ‘table incident’ thread, pretty hilarious and risque and memorable.

    I enjoy looking back at old threads too. Noticed the blue arrow isn’t on this page anymore. That’s the one that would point to other threads, fun stuff.
    See you on the flip side!
