Here at the frontier, the leaves fall like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians, there are still two cups at my table.

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.
