@Amanda Webber@facebook Yep, Columbus rules. Our Vic Village 2 bedroom is $750. I mean!
@Amanda Webber@facebook it's the same in our household. & I almost NEVER wish we had smartphones. we do both have an iPod Touch (his is newer & even has a CAMERA. fancy), which means we can check email on the go when there's wifi--but we also have a general rule about avoiding being That Couple who's simultaneously on their handhelds instead of actually interacting. wifi is nearly ubiquitous these days, you can text google to find addresses/phone numbers most of the time, & for the rare occasion that you actually NEED a piece of info that's not obtainable via either of those methods (this has never actually happened), you could always text a smartphone-owning friend. I'm sure I'll cave & get one eventually, but in the meantime I enjoy my more-frugal, less device-centric life as a luddite (see also: that Bogost piece in the Atlantic).
You mean a Bluth Banana?
@Amanda Webber@facebook Since this chat I've noticed that just about everyone has written about the Truffaut-Anderson connection, because duh. (I'm an authority on Truffaut so I can talk like that.) But I eventually remembered what I was really thinking of -- it's this short New Yorker piece that you can't actually read online, thanks New Yorker: http://www.newyorker.com/talk/2012/05/28/120528ta_talk_widdicombe It does mention Truffaut and Small Change, but what stuck with me more was Anderson's description of the movie as (I really like this) a "documentary of the kids acting."
