#tweetyhawke

Anna scored a $1 DVD copy of LadyHawke at the op shop the other day.

What’s that? You don’t know of LadyHawke?

Well, witness:

To be honest, the trailer doesn’t really sell it, but trust me this is an excellent film about a cursed werewolf and a cursed hawklady in love who team up with Ferris Bueller and Rumpole of the Bailey to break their curse and win each other’s love again. It’s awesome. I watched this movie a bajillionzillion times as a kid on a crappy TV-dubbed VHS tape. It’s pretty shlocky, but it’s also pretty wonderful too.

Anyway, I did the only thing a sensible person could do in response to such a great op shop find: I livetweeted the sucker.

Screen Shot 2015-12-17 at 9.46.43 am.pngIt’s a blow-by-blow retelling of one man’s evening spent rewatching a movie he’s watched over and over since his teenage years. There are laughs and there are tears and there is also what may well be the beginnings of what I like to call “The Ladyhawke Cinematic Universe”.

It’s all over on storify. Join me, won’t you?

Quelle Grammage!
Absolutely. two egregious typos in an ad for a comms job at a book publisher. do i weep or laugh? anna and i both discussed the fact that every pd we've read lately has had at least one typo in it. way to make me feel out of step, universe. this is a very well made poem. it's called "Travelling Through the Dark". *shudder* #williamstafford I am binge watchin star trek voyager right now and am gobsmacked by the recurring theme of helping out your friends and being nice to strangers even when theyre frightening because its the right thing to do. where has this theme gone when it comes to the stories we celebrate and share with each other?
