The autumn leaves are falling like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians and you, you are a thousand miles away, there are always two cups at my table.

T’ang Dynasty poem

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

Mystery Men


Last weekend, on cable, I finally caught Mystery Men. I haven't seen it before.

It was hilarious. All sorts of good lines. If you click on the title of this post, you'll be directed to a page of quotes from the movie.

I thought it was going to be a Ben Stiller centerpiece. I've liked Ben Stiller movies, and I was looking forward to it. Stiller gave the rest of the cast plenty of room, and it was Bill Macy, a perenial supporting actor (The Shoveler) who stole the show.

The movie is a delight, and it's suitable for anyone. Check it out.

The kids and I love this movie. I thought "Captain Amazing" and "Casanova Frankenstein" and his 2 henchmen stole the show. Good cast all around though.

My personal favorite was Bill Macy as The Shoveller.
