Movie Monday: "Cutthroat Island"

When it comes to swashbuckling films, we at The Lonely Alchemist are addicts.  We've watched nearly everything from Douglas Fairbanks to Johnny Depp, but just a few weeks ago, we came across a gem of a film that we had never even heard of:  "Cutthroat Island."  And we love it!

Made in 1995 with a budget of $98,000,000 and a handful of big name stars, "Cutthroat Island" is one of the biggest flops in movie history and, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, is the biggest financial loss to date (this statistic is out of date by now).

Turn it off!

What are you doing on the internet?  Just putzing around?  I thought so.  Now turn your computer off and spend some time outside.  Enjoy the sunshine, or the rain, whatever's happening.  Take a nice solitary walk, or spend some time with friends.  I don't mean chatting with them over text; actually spend some time with them.  Take full advantage of the day!

A Quote for Thought

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”
-- Pablo Neruda
