Welcome to episode#49 as we look at the list of 100 sitting in the slot of #54 Harold and Maude (Hal Ashby, 1971)

 Summary: Young adult Harold Chasen, solitary and friendless by choice, is obsessed with death, this fascination manifesting itself in him staging his own fake suicides, driving a hearse and attending funerals, even of people he doesn't know, all to the chagrin of his exasperated wealthy mother with whom he lives. Mrs. Chasen is determined for Harold to be "normal", including she sending him into therapy to deal with his issues and finding him a girlfriend through a computer dating service. It is at a series of funerals that Harold meets Maude, on the cusp of her eightieth birthday, she too attends funerals of strangers. Unlike Harold, Maude is obsessed with life - her own life to be more precise - doing whatever she wants to please herself, damn what others may think or how they may be affected. Since she can't take material possessions with her whenever she goes, she is more interested in experiences, with whatever material possessions she has - often "borrowed" without asking.

 Chris and Paxton try to understand this film about one young man coming of age with a woman at the end of hers.  Keefe had the right idea and ran away... but we are committed.   Or will be committed...

Twentyfortea Plays: XCOM 2 - Episode 25 - I Thought Our Bullets Were Magnetic

            Nat20 and Yorkshire Tea bring someone new.


Welcome to episode# 48 as we take it to the Dogs...and people, but mostly dogs.....#55 Best in Show (Christopher Guest,2000)

Summary: A colorful array of characters compete at a national dog show. The owners (and handlers) of five show dogs head for the Mayflower Kennel Club Dog Show. A film crew interviews them as they prepare for the trip, arrive at Philadelphia's Taft Hotel, and compete in the show. From Florida come the Flecks: she keeps running into old lovers. A wordless ancient in a wheelchair and his buxom trophy wife who may have a thing for the dog's handler own the two-time defending best in show, a poodle. From the piney woods of N.C. comes a fella who wants to be a ventriloquist. High-strung DINKs feud loudly in front of their Weimaraner. Two outrĂ© gay men from Tribeca round out the profiled owners. The dog show brings out the essence of the humans. Who will be best in show? 

Keefe, Chris, and Paxton bring you the amazing tale (tail) of a story about show dogs.  Actually, that would have been better.  For now, you get their owners.  Have fun with that.  Bow Wow, Ruf!
