Dragonflew: I could have mentioned the Da Vinci code, but that would have just made people furious because it was not necessarily a sequel, just featured the same protagonist.


No, it was definitely a sequel, as the da Vinci Code book references events which happened in Angels & Demons.

The funny thing is that Angels and Demons didn't do that well when it was released, so it's not clear how Dan Brown got contracted to write a sequel.

Fano: Hopefully the film about an onanistic voyeur, Then Again, Maybe I Won't, will be this generation's Rear Window.


I don't know. Jimmy Stewart is a grown-ass man who knows what he's doing when he recreationally pervs on his neighbors, plus he solves a murder mystery, so he's got that going for him.

Tony McStalkerkid is a lot creepier, somehow. And I say that as someone who, like every 13-year-old boy, was  at least that creepy and gross. If the recent cover they're putting on that book is any indication, it's not something that is quite so cute when put in a visual medium:

Jesus, guys, wow ...I don't give a crap about Star Wars. The idea that I "know more about Star Wars" is preposterous... its like saying I know more about E.T. when I state that it originally had guns.

I just don't like it when people make smug statements/arguments with sloppy falsehoods. All I mean is, it's best you know what you are talking about if you want to look superior.

/I admit, I am not always successful at that either.

Petey4335: Wifey?
/sigh


Actually, there are a series of "Wifey" movies out there. They're excellent. Jump on Bit Torrent and check them out.

Wow. You know, i don't remember the binoculars being that huge of a part of the book to be placed on the cover. They might as well have used a pic of him hiding his boner when he had to do a math problem.

Judy Blume did a good job of having flawed kids in a period when kids had been pretty idealized.

Was it her or Cynthia Rylant that wrote The 2000 pound Goldfish? I remembered thinking it was odd, a kid that lived in a motel. Then again, i seem to remember a book where it was unremarkable that the family lived in an abandoned schoolbus. Times have changed, i guess.

I've got a funny feeling in my pants now.

Is there a Judy Blume book that will explain to me what's happening?

Silence of the lambs would be a better choice

The movie Manhunter was based on the first one. It wasn't too popular, and Hopkins did not play Lecter, but it came out before SotL.  

(See, Perlin Noise and Madbassist1? That's how you provide correct information without being an absolute douchebag.)


You were being a dick, you deserve to be treated like one. Man up, Nancy-boy.

Yes, my two word reply of "Yeah, ridiculous" was insulting, prickish, and deserving of the screaming and the insults.  I get it, Boba.

Wow, this thread went to hell fast.  Guys, we need to find some common ground.  I think we need to put our differences aside and all agree that Greedo shot first.

Yeah, you'd swear the middle class hadn't been gutted and whole families weren't out there living in their 14-year-old Ford Escort wagons and minivans with a book value of $300.  An abandoned schoolbus sounds like luxury.

If it weren't for Judy Blume novels, I would never have learned archaic trivia about sanitary belts.

Someone needs to get them a copy of "Are You There God..." so they can learn how to deal with their weeping vaginas.


Excellent!

NorCalLos: Can anyone explain why the title of this book sounds like something I've read before, yet I don't recall ever reading this book?


Loved this book; a girl and her family move to the desert (New Mexico, IIRC) after her father is killed in a robbery in their New Jersey home.  They all deal with his death in different ways.

I remember in one of my 4th grade classes, my teacher would read books to the class. She got on a real run of Judy Blume titles. She began reading AYTGIMM one week and got a few chapters into it. The next day, she had a different book because AYTG wasn't quite in-class material. Most of us wondered why.

Has anyone read any of them recently? I was wondering if they still held up and didn't seem too dated..

If you read TFA, there's a mention of the books being updated to reflect modern times.

Its probably been more than 20 years since I've read Judy Blume, but I remember her books like I read them yesterday. It's amazing how they've resonated with multiple generations so well.

theorellior: gunga galunga: Seriously though, good on her for tweaking the noses of those tighty-righties that don't want children to even learn about their own bodies.

I was astounded to find out that people wanted to ban her books from schools. I read them all in fourth-fifth grade. I learned a lot about Jews, menstruation, integration, wet dreams and fat kids.


Don't forget racists.

Dragonflew: Perlin Noise: Dragonflew: Yeah, ridiculous.

um ..Star Wars was not initially released as Episode 4, moron. That was added later.

It was released as Star Wars.

Maybe, but "Episode IV" has been in the opening crawl since 1981.  But I bow to your knowledge of Star Wars there, supergenius.  Are you always such a dick?


You were wrong, but he's the dick.  I am amused.
