    Re: Pixar's "Brave"

    I finally saw this with my 5-year-old daughter. (She'd already seen it with her mother, and loves it.) Very entertaining!

    And thank you, Scrivener, for the fascinating article.

    Re: Breast Restaurants

    Hah, you guys are having fun with this. I can't see the appeal of such establishments--I'm blinded by the feeling of being manipulated for my maximum cash value.

    I think I signed up maybe 5 minutes before they started using Facebook for their sign-ins. So I have a "plain" account which is still linked to Facebook, but doesn't authenticate with it. I think!

    Thanks! I remember digging around a bit with my father-in-law, and finding, you know, a few songs here and there...but I'm glad you've kept on it and assembled such an improved list!

    Just finished Whale Rider, which was charming and atmospheric. Gonna see if my high school students like it--I have a bunch of Tongans and Samoans, so I figure they might enjoy the Polynesian nod.
