My participation is sporadic these days but I still look in pretty regularly. Great to see you!
And wonderful to hear from you, Esther!!! I look forward to catching up and hearing what's new in Philly! :cheers:

Oh, and I just learned a bit of apparent Philly slang the other day: "jawn." Is that a word you use or at least hear??

Good to have you back, Local! I only pop up here once every few weeks for one or two posts, but I'm happy you're back and I'm glad you're doing well!
And one of those posts should be to post your list for the films on unofficial lists poll :P Would hate to lose your voice on that this time around. :D

The prodigal son returneth ...

It may be that there are some forum old timers who still remember me. After being a regular on the form for -- what? -- six years or so(?), I drifted shamelessly for a while, and then when the forum took on a new home, I didn't have access. Some time ago Knaldskalle helped me find a way back, and at last in the midst of a quarantine I have reconnected. I think it's been at least four years? I've missed the company of so many of you, and I've gotten rather frightfully rusty with the world of cinephilia, but if any of you still remember me, drop me a hello!

I hear you have a new Russian list and I'm going to have to find the discussion for that!
Welcome back Local! Yes, there was discussion here and a poll on the other forum about the Russian list, and it's been a fairly non-controversial replacement (so far).

You should also post your list for the poll :whistling:
Hey, Fergenaprido! Good to hear from you!

I'm not exactly thrilled that the old Russian list was dropped just when I was closing in on completing it, but I'm hardly in a position to complain now, am I? :lol:

And for which poll should I be submitting a list?
Funnily enough, I went on the LiveJournal list after the blog post was sent out and the top comment is one from you saying it's a poor choice for an official list so I guess they finally listened to you 10 years and 4 months later! :D

Jawn or sometimes jaunt, I think. (rough translation: thing) As a middle-schooler Georgie used to say "jaunt" a lot, he got it from a friend from S Philly.
Last I knew our neighborhood had 3 toy stores for pets and none for children.

It's not too late to submit a list. Deadline is in a few hours, but I'm headed out to a friend's house for the afternoon so I won't start downloading the lists until then. So you have at least 6, and probably close to 12 hours left (maybe more, depending on how long it takes me to get things sorted out).

"Jawn" appears to have been discontinued by most Philadelphians the minute it was "ironically" picked up by hipsters:

Ha ha! Yes, there are quite a lot of mediocrities on the LiveJournal list. That said the new list seems rather poppy -- sort of like an imdb250 for Russia. It would be nice to have a critics' choice list, IMO.

It's quite a neighborhood you live in, so that doesn't surprise me! That said, I remember visiting a children's toy story in your 'hood.

Films on zero lists?! Oh, wow -- I don't think I'm capable of rustling up such a list on any kind of short notice. I've been out of the cinephilic/ICM loop.

Hey, Funky! Yes, I bought that Criterion right away and enjoyed the commentary. I bought it, by the way, at a two-day retrospective of Forsyth's work at the Film Forum in NYC. He spoke on both days, and ..... I shook the man's hand and thanked him. :woot:

Either way, I missed all the fun as I only learned the word a couple of months ago, even though I've been living not far away in NYC for two decades now.

Why, hello, stranger! It's great to have you back! You're in the midst of a quarantine? I hope all is well on your end, I got back last night from a week-long trip to Alberta, where mask-wearing isn't so popular, so I may go into quarantine myself for a while, just to be a good citizen (Anne and I are feeling fine, though).

Do you have a Top 5 list of books you've read since you were last here? Always looking for suggestions!

Hey, Leopardi! Good to see you're still here! When I say "quarantine," I just mean the same general lockdown conditions everyone in my country (who still believes in science) should be in. I make the occasional masked sojourn to the outside world, but most of the time I'm home. :cheers:
