Right?  Even if it does make it over here, I imagine it might be a very limited release. 

It was excellent.  I was worried that it was going to be overhyped but it exceeded my expectations wonderfully.

Managed to catch it over winter break the day before I returned to Korealand.  Thankfully I remembered it was out.  I'd see it again too.  And might I add that for Peele's first foray into feature length films, I am mightily impressed.  Can't wait for future works!

I mean, it may come here. Moonlight came - which is also not a very locally-flavoured movie.
It did? I totally missed that!

Fair point.  They may bring Get Out over simply because of box office success.

Had mad award hype though. Good for the cinephile crowd here.

I believe it's still in theatres here!  Least it was last weekend.

I saw Birdman when it had the award hype. That was awkward. That movie is not a movie that's translatable with subtitles. I've never seen a more confused crowd at a theatre. And it's a bit of a trip, even in English.

Hahahaha, during the H-Job scene in Moonlight, a Korean couple left the theatre and never returned. That was hilarious and awkward for them.

My GF was phoned by her boss during Birdman. She left for 40 MINUTES. After the movie she asked me what she missed.

"Uhhhhhhhh, Michael Keaton was outside in his underwear....... and, F it, we'll watch it again."

Tuesdays are normally my "meh" days, but I'd been riding on only about 6 hours of sleep for the past 2.5 days (my fault), so I was a corpse on Monday and don't remember anything after 6 PM last night.

Best night's sleep I've had since being in Korea, just happy to be alive.

But I forgot the swing I made for my desk teddy. T_T

Holy Hell! Hahahaha

"Okay everyone, look at the coloured babies!"  says the after school teacher (share's room with me)

Me: Whhaatttttt

There's a section of her textbook called Color Babies. It's about blue and red having a baby and it's purple.

Two of my boy students informed me that they're dieting.  When I asked why, they simply pointed at their guts.  They're both grade 3 middle schoolers so I wonder if they're anticipating meeting new girls once they get to high school.  Haha

Every time Waygook says "Fetching Preview" when I make a post, I get excited like the website thinks my post is very beautiful.  :laugh:

I jam so many fonts-sizes, colours, quotes, hyperlinks, and other formatting into my comments that I usually have to preview what I wrote just to check if it's even comprehensible. Oh, and sometimes I even check the preview to see if what I wrote makes sense.  :smiley:

Bingo. I type really fast and think off the cuff so it's always good to go back and think, "Oi vey, that needs to change." hahaha

I wish the little ones had lunch earlier than 1:30, because all they do in my class is whine "배고파~~~~~~."

My ears feel slightly strange lately.  Sort of as if the altitude has changed considerably and they need to pop.  Maybe some weird kind of sinus pressure?

I have nothing to do today. I hope you enjoy the 35 posts I've made today.

God bless you all.

I've only made two or three, but one of them is like 20 paragraphs long and full of math. Enjoy!

It's probably too early to tell, but it sounds like it might be an ear infection. I've learned over the years that lots of sleep is often helpful. Hope it clears up quickly!  :smiley:
