Love To Change The World... or at least their world, as they hopelessly fall for each other... but extenuating circumstances may well prevent their desired harmonic convergence... (not sure why I am doling out all these hippie references... just Work With Me, Annie...)
Anyway, mosey on over to the PerfectStrangers blog for the ===POST=== regarding the GingerBinge viewing... and also make sure to check out the 'pages', as there are new screencaps, publicity stills, and even a few GIFs... I'm dangerous with that deal, y'alllllllll...
Hope everyone has a great week and weekend wherever you may be... and stay tuned on FB for the next 'filmpick' for the continuing GingerBinge Summer... which is invariably going to ooze into autumn... GingerAutumn sounds cool anyway, right?

...Hope everyone had a great weekend, including the Gingertennial+5 festivities! Honestly, we just cleaned up some around the house, which in some weird way I think Ginger would have appreciated...

Well, I'll write up a few things over on the DBOL blog... and will update this post when THAT post is... posted...
UPDATE: HERE it is...
...and a general FYI - it's a bit much to watch a film AND do the blog 'overviews', so... henceforth on the Summer GingerBinge I may well watch one night, and do the 'overview' stuff the next... just sayin'...
Until next time...

ANYWAY, Hu will view what most (including Ginger) consider G&F's best film... I've seen it a gazillion times, but... will look for 'subtleties' to report... sure there are plenty.
UPDATE: HERE is the link to the GingerBinge Summer review for SwingTime...
Hope everyone is having a great weekend, and remember... one week away from Gingertennial +5!!!
It is my hope that I can continue to make 'G-ology' interesting and informative regarding the 'Beautiful Science' of VKM, which is SUCH a great topic!!! ...And remember, your comments are what make Gingerology click - so keep cranking them out!
Thanks again, JW
