Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to everyone!  I was thinking of writing a list of New year's resolutions but decided against this when I realised I hadn't done half the ones I set out last year.  2010 was a very busy year with lots of happy times, and some sad too.  Here's to a year of new and happy experiences in 2011.

I don't have the TCM television channel but if I did I'd be tuning in on Sunday 11th January (it said Sunday 11th on their website but have just checked an online TV Guide and it is actually on Saturday 15th January at 1.10pm and again at 5am) as they will be screening Lindsay Anderson's The Whales of August (1987).  This film is available on DVD but has never had a UK release so it can be difficult and pricey to get hold of.   It is one of my favourite Lindsay Anderson films so this is as much of an excuse as I need to post a lovely photo of Lindsay Anderson with the wonderful Lillian Gish.
