I'm heading out-of-town for a few days on a vacation -- first one in quite some time -- so no Letters From the Editor's desk for a little while. But I did want to share with you what happens when you mention to a movie nerd that it's raining in Kona, and he may want to pack a few movies for those damp, unhikable, un-snorklable evenings. Lighter stuff; nothing too dark or dreary or deep. With that in mind, I now have a portable DVD binder jammed with the following:

Singin' in the Rain
Amelie
The Venture Brothers, Season One

Dazed and Confused (Criterion, both Discs)
The Disorderly Orderly
Brick
Infernal Affairs
The Philadelphia Story
Saturday Night Live: The Best of TV Funhouse
Heavy Metal Parking Lot
Bad Santa: Director's Cut.


... Yeah, I know: Pretty dorky. And pretty silly, too; who brings movies to Hawaii? But then again, a rainy night is a rainy night -- and it's not like I'm an accountant and someone asked me to bring along some amortization tax timetables. I hope you're all well; I'll see you on the 16th.

Aloha,

J.
