- RT @DrPatariro: 특히 미성년자 꼬셔서 트위터에 비디오 찍어 올리는 새끼들은 진짜 한 번 일망타진해야 됨. 31 minutes ago
- RT @DrPatariro: 그리고 게이들도 제발 비디오 올릴 때 조심 좀 해라. 사회적 지위에 체면 있는 사람들은 막 올리는 거 아냐...미쿡은 다를 거 같니. 특정직종들은 다 품위유지를 요구한다고. 32 minutes ago

- RT @DrPatariro: 애쓴다 김뿌우.. 그래도 사실 관계를 보기엔 좋음. 물론 논리는 헛소리입니다. 관저가 뭐가 중요해. ㅋㅋㅋ 관저에서 했다고 처벌받은 것도 아니고, 관저에서 군인끼리 하면 막을 방법이 없지..ㅋㅋㅋ https://t.c… 32 minutes ago

Dear Roger It is almost a year since I received the e-mail notifying me of your death, and I and others are still thinking of you while missing you a lot. At the end of last year, many people wondered … Continue reading
In case of some people, you miss them dearly when you are apart from them, but then you remember how unpleasant they can be when you are near them. I do not know much about Tom Dark, whom I met … Continue reading
“So on this day of reflection I say again, thank you for going on this journey with me. I’ll see you at the movies.” – from Roger Ebert’s last blog entry “A Leave of Presence”
The last day of Ebertfest finally came, but it was still happy to be get together with others. The last movie of the festival, “Song Sung Blue”, is the documentary about the human spirit. Mike and Claire Sardina, as Lightening and Thunder, had been wonderful performers on the stages. Maybe their acts were not original(Mike sang Neil Diamond songs, and Claire did the songs of Patsy Cline, Blondies, and ABBA), but they were popular with people in Milwaukee and you can see why from their performances in video footage. Even if you don’t have much interest in these songs, they would draw your attentions with the joy of singing. And they were good singers.
Day 4 was for four movies. Due to the lack of sleep, I was in the worst condition, so I didn’t react well to “I Captured the Castle”.

Delirium continued to reign on Day 3 and another “the lamb to the slaughter” situation started for us early in the morning. After saying goodbye to Michael Philips at Breakfast room, I went into Pine Lounge on the 1st floor with my friends. Along with them, I was about to participate in panel discussion titled “The Global Web of Film Lovers”. Thanks to Roger’s blessing and Omer’s deft moderation, we went through well and 70 minutes was shorter than I thought. The video clip is available on here, but I do not want to kill myself by watching it.
I was afraid of Day 2 because I would be on the stage as one of panelists for the first movie of that day, “Munyurangabo”, directed by Issac Chung, Korean-American director from Arkansas. Continue reading
