Precisely. That's why we should start again Tavros. I am going on with russian, which I never gave up anyway, but now even more so. I have a renewed interest, so to speak.

I hope we'll see J. here again anyway, even if he is not the leader anymore. He is very much wanted.

Have you guys started thinking of which films you would like to do for thes month's challenge by the way?

The monthly challenges is one of the innovations that Josquin brought in that I would like to keep. But since I am a bigger nag than he is :-)I will bring up the topic repeatedly, to see if we could raise the percentage of people actually doing it.

Teango - I know you could do this in your sleep, you have recomended so many great films, and Fabrizio - you have probably seen a bunch of Russian films. I would particulary like you to write about "the Irony of Fate", but you do of course chose whichever film you want. Josquin - have you chosen your film yet? I know you do not want to break your excellent track record.

I have not decided which film to chose yet. I have only seen 3-4 actual Russian films, all the others are American films in translation. Time will show, but start thinking, guys. We are already half through the month :-)

It's a three-horned bull from Celtic mythology, yes. And it has the epithet "Trigaranus"
which refers to three crane birds accompanying him and defending him, alerting him to
danger.

Josquin and Mark,

I don't know who started what or who is most at fault so let's just agree to knock it off at this point.

I'd love to write about "Irony of Fate", I have yet to see the second one, so perhaps I
could watch both and write about them?

Failing which, I'm looking at "Piter FM", or "Ivan Vasilievich changes profession" (I
forget the exact name).

Or does it have to be a film I've never seen before?
