Spending a lot of time in Chicago these days, as is Ms. Celluloid Pantry. So that’s enough to prompt the semi-annual screening of the Blues Brothers. Just noticed , after watching this movie maybe 50 times already, that right after John Candy’s immortal “This is car 55. We’re in a truck.” line, another cop is heard to utter, “hey, they broke my watch!”, in a recapitulation of the gag from the mall drive-through scene. What other gems will Cinema 59’s recent upgrades reveal?
Hey, they broke my watch!

I spent two of my precious Toronto International Film Festival tickets on music films — Scott Hick’s “GLASS: a protrait of Philip in 12 parts” and Julian Schnabel’s “Lou Reed’s Berlin.”
Sychronicities, everywhere you look — “Candy says.”
Catching up on a backlog of news — hey, they never broke Honest Ed.
From the Globe & Mail obituary (maybe from their own archives, or possibly from Jack Batten’s “Honest Ed’s Story”):
“He jokingly suggested that he wanted to be cremated and have his ashes sealed in a large hour-glass that would be put on display at Honest Ed’s and turned every hour so that his employees and his customers could say, ‘There’s good old Ed … still running.’”
