Hi tlr. I was searching around on the internet earlier and I looked up Southsea. Wow, It looks gorgeous. You are lucky but I don't know how you can get any work done. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif Can you see the ocean from where you live? It makes me drop all my obligations and start traveling all over the place. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif Please let me know the next time you are going to be on again, I wanted to talk longer the other day but I had to give someone a ride somewhere. :rolleyes:

16-06-03, 19:56
By the way tlr, do you speak french? You used a little bit of it the other day. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

16-06-03, 20:27
Bonsoir Isabella. Oui je parle Français. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif Southsea is great this time of year, it sure is hard not to be consumed by it all. How was your day?

Sheesh, hope it's spelled right. Highschool German was a long time ago. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

Hi. My day, so far, is fine. My allergies are better. Have you ever had those? I never knew how bad they were. This is the first year I've had them. I just made some coffee by the way. Let me know if you want any. ;)

16-06-03, 20:36
That'a great the you can speak french. Maybe you kamimari and I can talk about everyone (Maureen) behind their backs. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Why, I'll have a Colombia Nariño Supremo with some walnut lace, thank you. ;)

16-06-03, 20:39
Ich verstehe du, Maureen. Ich spreche ein bisschen Deutsch. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif As for French, I only know very basic phrases.

16-06-03, 20:42
Unfortunately, I'm all out of the Colombian Narino Supremo. But how about a nice Kenyan AA. It has a lovely winey taste to it, a bit on the fuller bodied side but very smooth. I'm not sure what walnut lace is. But anything with nuts has to be good. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif How about a shortbread biscuit?

tlr online
16-06-03, 20:47
Sounds good to me. Rack 'em up, I'm incoming...

16-06-03, 20:54
It will be waiting. But it's almost 10. You probrobly won't be able to sleep after the way I make it. The sun set and sun rise must look spectacular over there. I live next to a lake but it's so small. And you can see across it pretty easily so the other side spoils the view. Do you want your coffee black?

tlr online
16-06-03, 20:58
No, slide some full bodied cream in there please. I can't tell you just how amazing the sunsets are over here, you're just gonna have to experience it for yourself. Sitting on the beach watching the sun kiss the horizon and slip into dusk is awesome, it's easy to forget you're in the UK, notorious for it's dismal weather. Are you an outdoors person?

Maureen Errant
16-06-03, 20:59
Hey Ocean, that's great. Yours is probably better than mine. I'm being paged by customers, and I don't know if I'll get back on, so I'll say Bye-bye and night- night to everyone. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/grouphug.gif

16-06-03, 21:04
Oh come on Isabella! Your view can't get any ****per than a main road leading to one of Europe's busiest motorway and other people's houses! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

16-06-03, 21:05
I was until I got allergies. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif I love being outside. The only thing is that for some reason bugs of every kind are attracted to me. I'm like a walking piece of stickey tape. It's not from perfume or anything either. As long as they don't surprise me and I'm aware of a giant bubbble bee about to land on my head, I'm fine. The outdoors is great, especially this time of the year. Are you an outdoorsmen? I like my coffee with cream also. Strong and creamy is the best way to enjoy it. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

16-06-03, 21:08
Got that right Ocean-sirius.

A stretch of road is not visually appealing. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

tlr online
16-06-03, 21:13
Oh yeah.. I'm outdoors all the way. This Blue Pearl of ours is just too damn alluring to live confined within four walls. T.S Eliot says it best: "We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time."

Aint that the truth!

16-06-03, 21:17
I dream of leaving this area not just because of its lack of aesthetic appeal but also its people. I was born here but it feels somehow...wrong. I am studying at home to save money and because I cannot cope with sharing homes with people I don't know but I eventually wish to leave and have wanted to since an early age.

16-06-03, 21:19
That's beautiful. I love literary pieces that make you think, and then realize how true they are. I'll have to remember that.

I know what you mean about not being confined for too long indoors. This past month I have been spending far too much time on the computer. Before I would only use it for e-mail or research. Your forum is just too addicting. ;)

16-06-03, 21:20
Woah something really weird just happened when I clicked on this thread :eek:

btw Isabella could you pour me a cuppa im dying for some of that coffee ;)

16-06-03, 21:23
Hi Rommie. I'd be happy to. ;) Rommie is a cute name by the way.

16-06-03, 21:25
Thanks Isabella http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

By the way tlr, The other day I forgot to mention the movie "The Godfather". That is definatley one of the best movies. What kind of music do you like?

16-06-03, 21:43
Right now I'm listening to some Van Morrison. Perfect with a good cup of coffee. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/cutie.gif

tlr online
16-06-03, 21:46
The Godfather trilogy is a great series of movies. Marlin Brando is nothing short of genius. Regarding music, nothing specific. It all depends on my mood. Hard house pumps the spirit during training for sure, through Giuseppe Tartini's Violin Sonata in G Minor spinning in the tray to unwind after a hectic day. (Are you familiar with this piece, it's nothing short of spectacular!) What about you?

16-06-03, 21:54
I like all kind of music. I guess the only kind I don't like is the over commercialized boy-band, overnight pop star types.
I'm not familiar with that sonata, but I love the violin and the cello. They are very powerful and deep. I'll look it up. One of the best soundtracks I think is the one for The Last of the Mohicians. Like you said though, it all depends on what kind of mood you are in. Have you seen Immortal Beloved? That's another good movie. I keep remembering ones that I forgot. ;)

tlr online
16-06-03, 22:01
The Last Of The Mohicans (I think) was scored by Trevor Jones and Randy Edelman (of Gettysburg, The Mask and Shanghai Noon fame). I have it here somewhere, and it's awesome. I haven't seen Immortal Beloved, what's it about and who's it directed by?

16-06-03, 22:07
It's about Beethoven. It explains a little bit about where some of his inspiration came from. But it's also a love story. You find out about the woman he was really in love with and how she may have been the reason for some of his pieces. Sorry but I don't know who directed it. Gary Oldman is in it. It's a beautiful movie.
I think you are right about Trevor Jones and Randy Edelman on the soundtrack. I have two, one cd is the usual soundtrack and one is taken directly as it was heard in the movie. I think my favorite is The Kiss. I never get sick of that cd. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

16-06-03, 22:11
Wow! Immortal Beloved certainly escaped me, I'll get that tomorrow and let you know what I think. Did I ask you what your favorite movie/movie genre was?

16-06-03, 22:15
I think the movie came out in 94'. Please let me know what you think of it though. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

I feel the same way about movies as I do about music. It depends. But I think I prefer period films. I always wondered what life would have been like if I had been born in a different era. Do you have a favorite?

tlr online
16-06-03, 22:21
It would be unjust to nail down one particular movie. I enjoy movies that require a degree of thought and carry a subliminal message. That’s not to impugn action adventure movies that require little or no brain activity.. ;) (you watch me get slammed for saying that :D ) I'm of the school of thought that subscribes to the theory that if a director is going to spend 100 mil on making a movie, I sure as hell wanna be challenged. Mulholland Drive (David Linch) does just that! Have you seen it?

16-06-03, 22:21
I found the soundtrack to Immortal Beloved. It was directed by Bernard Rose. ;)

tlr online
16-06-03, 22:24
Thanks. Searching now..

16-06-03, 22:25
I have seen parts of it, but never the whole thing. I hate that. I really want to see it all the way through because I liked what I saw. I like David Lynch. Did you see his mini-series Twin Peaks? I was too young to have been able to understand it when it aired but someone has the whole series on tapes. It's very good. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

16-06-03, 22:29
[QUOTE]Originally posted by tlr online:

I couldn't agree more. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

tlr online
16-06-03, 22:37
Nope. Haven't seen that. According to IMDB, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me (http://us.imdb.com/Title?0105665) is available on DVD, so this is another movie on my lists of "to see." http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

As you're already aware, I've a keen interest in psychology and human behaviour, which prompts my next question. Do you have a defining moment?

16-06-03, 22:44
The movie "Fire Walk With Me" is ok. It's a prequel to Twin Peaks so it's not as deep. You should try and find the series first if you can.

I think I do have what would be called a defining moment, but I'm kind of a private person when it comes to some things. I wouldn't feel comfortable knowing that the whole forum would be able to read something like that. (Not that people on here aren't great) I'm still new here though. And I don't like the idea that anyone, those who are not even members, can see something that is personal. I hope you understand ;)

tlr online
16-06-03, 22:47
Completely. Forgive my rather bold intrusion. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

16-06-03, 22:50
No, don't worry. I would mind talking about it to a small group of the people I've met here. But to have it out for the whole internet to see, that's completely different.
What about you? If you don't want to say, that's fine. You are very intriguing though. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

tlr online
16-06-03, 22:59
I believe I have recently weathered a defining moment that will be instrumental in the mapping of my future, but much like you I wouldn’t feel comfortable documenting here. Again not to impugn the integrity of our fellow members, but wielding the proverbial iron axe I fear I would inevitably loose momentum should too much be revealed by the incongruous tlr online. ;)

Having said that, I will remain intrigued by your plight.

16-06-03, 23:06
http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/cutie.gif I was just going to add to my last post that I probrobly shouldn't even be asking you since I wasn't willing. Besides, I understand that your low profile is important here. ;)

Writing something here, on the internet, is like throwing a piece of yourself out into the world that you can never take back. So we will both wonder..
What interests you so much in psychology? I know it's a facinating field, but what about it do you like so much? If I may ask ;)

tlr online
16-06-03, 23:17
I’m besotted with human behavior, the influences we impose on one another without any kind of cognitive awareness, and how our lives and the memories contained therein can hypnotize (and mesmerize) another human being. Crudly defined, we’re all peer-to peer, with a small portion of nodes gleaning a global insight into what makes us tick.

16-06-03, 23:21
Good reason. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif I love listening to other people, their lives ect. But when it comes to myself I'm not so comfortable discussing things. But the human mind is facinating.
You probrobly want to get some sleep, how long do you usually stay up?

16-06-03, 23:31
Tlr, will you be here around 23:00 tom? I may be kicked off the computer in about half an hour. :rolleyes:
But until I'm forced to leave, I'm staying on. ;)

tlr online
16-06-03, 23:33
To sleep is an act of faith. I'm on hand around the clock. Tragically. :eek:

16-06-03, 23:39
Poor you. No wonder you need the caffeine. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif By the way, I hope your defining moment was a positive one. And if it wasn't I hope it turned out alright in the end. ;) If anything, those moments can make us stronger.
Do you screen all the members psychologically? Is that why everyone here is so cool? They are mentally sound. (Most of them at least) http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

tlr online
16-06-03, 23:44
Alas no, but every now and again someone comes along that offers challenge and intrigue, if you follow me. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Je compris.

You mentioned before that you liked Much Ado About Nothing. Have you seen Othello with (watch me completely kill this spelling) Laurence Fishbourne? It's wonderfully done. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

tlr online
17-06-03, 00:01
Othello is another movie populated by our British "luvvies" (Kenneth Branagh portrays the evil Iago bent on manipulating Othello) - however Laurence Fishburne's mesmorising performance as Morpheus in the Matrix trilogy is magnetic. I recall you mentioning you've seen The Matrix. What do you make of the movie?

17-06-03, 00:07
I'm not a huge fan of science fiction but The Matrix kind of blew my mind. Just the whole concept. It really makes you wonder...

Have you seen the sequel yet? I want to see it on the big screen. Laurence Fishburne's performance was perfect. It was as though he was playing himself. He is such a strong, calming presence in all his movies. :cool:

17-06-03, 00:10
I love Kenneth Branagh. I wish he would bring all the Shakespearean plays to film. He doesn't spoil them. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

How has been the day up there? I had extreme difficulties in waking up this morning (note to self: never allow oneself to sleep after 5:00 AM and a busy night spent on the forum!).

The weather was thankfully very mild and a little wet, with some crude sunlight bursting through the clouds at times. A good change from the scorching heat of the previous days!

I plan to go at the Paris Air Show tomorrow morning. Do you like aviation? I hope to be able to attend the Farnborough Air Show one day. It has a very good reputation.

17-06-03, 22:12
Hi Tlr, and Kaminari. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif Are either of you still here? I couldn't get on for a while. It's very busy here tonight. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Hello. My day was great thanks. It nice and warm and humid, just the way I like it. If I could stop sneezing I may actually get to enjoy it. I found a new ice-cream at the health food store that is a ginger flavor. I'm excited. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif That shows how exciting my life is right now. ;) How was your day? Did you go to the beach?

tlr online
17-06-03, 22:27
Alas no, apart from training I've been tied here all day. Because of the new delay with AOD, the phone has been ringing non-stop and the forum overloaded on three occasions this evening. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yikes.gif Got any plans for this evening?

17-06-03, 22:37
I was supposed to go to the theater (it's a summer stock group) to see Eskibna in da Moonlight" but the tickets were already sold out by the time we stopped by in my way home from work. So now I have no plans. Unless you consider eating some ice cream and a salad plans. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif (They balance eachother out somehow) That's good news for you that you are busy, right?

17-06-03, 23:09
A strong cup of coffee is just what the doc. ordered. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif I found THIS (http://www.escanabathemovie.com/) web site based on the movie you're planning to see. Some interesting downloads to be had there..

17-06-03, 23:16
Thank you. I'll take a look at it. We have a barn theater here that is putting on the play version of the film (that's what I was supposed to be going to) I missed the movie. It supposed to be funny. Upper humor is always great. One of my friends actually grew up in Escanaba and she can immitate their way of speaking perfectly, even with the half-shut, sleepied eyed look. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

17-06-03, 23:18
By the way, I'll have your coffee ready in a few minutes. The slower the brew, the better the flavor. ;) You can't rush perfection.

17-06-03, 23:34
Tlr, thanks. That's a great site. Jeff Daniels is not afraid to try things. He can go from Dumb and Dumber to writing his own film. I really wish I could have seen that play. It's too bad you don't live around here, the Barn theater here in Augusta mi has spectacular performances. They just finished The Rockey Horror Picture Show. From what you have said, it sounds like this would be the kind of theater you would like. People come from all over every summer to see the shows. I think that your coffee is ready, I'll be sure to add the right amount of cream. ;)

18-06-03, 00:28
"Tea with Mussilini"
and "Life is Beautiful"


Goodnight Tlr. I hope you were able to get some sleep, it sounds like you had a hectic day. Tomorrow can only be better (hopefully) http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif Take care. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif
