No Borders

Heard the best quote today on 'The World in Words' podcast:

"Languages are just dialects with an army and a navy"

Also, I think it was John Lennon's birthday last weekend. Dudes, take a moment and imagine peace!

80's Sophisticated Work Dramas

So I've made up this genre of movies for myself that I call "The 80's New York Financial Drama". Like Oliver Stone's "Wall Street" and "Working Girl" and. . . well those are the only two movies I can think of or have seen, but I know there are more out there! So I'm posting this blog as a plea for suggestions for more films that fit this description. I'm also willing to include "80's New York Legal Dramas", or "80's Los Angeles Real Estate Development Dramas". . . or basically any combination therein, and basically an 80's movie with power-brokering and fine tailored suits, with deals done on racket ball courts or in mahogany paneled locker-rooms, and only two types of women; cold, hard, sophisticated ones who stay up late at night studying to be better than the boys because she has to be (Melanie Griffith Johnson Bauer Johnson Banderas), and sexy, floaty, arty ones who deep down are really just as hard and heartless and gold-digging as their male counter-parts (ahem, Daryl Hannah).

(note, this does NOT include 80's Political Dramas from any locale)

Please, if you know of some good ones, drop me a line!

Crap! How'd it get to be 3:00 a.m.???!!! I promise, this blog is not influenced by the late hour, it's something I've been thinking about for a little while now. So really, only fault the shoddy writing on the late hour, not the idea itself.

Hope you're all having good Friday/Saturday nights!
