Coming Soon (but not soon enough)! [Feb. 14th, 2005|10:51 am]

I saw a movie at the Kendall yesterday, and so got to see some indie/foreign/arthouse movie previews for a change. Two in particular made me squeal and bounce in anticipation.

The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill: There has been, for years, a flock of wild conures over by Coit Tower. I read about them in the Chron in the early 90's, and I actually saw them one weekend in 1995 when I had a weekend minibreak in a furnished apartment on Filbert Street which was owned by the company I was working for at the time. I am psyched that a documentary has been made about this fascinating tribe.

Kung Fu Hustle: Stephen Chow. New comedy. Stephen Chow. Ganglords vs. Landlords. Stephen Chow. Jackie Chan spoofs. Stephen Chow.

Uh, did I mention it's a Stephen Chow film?

It's a little scary that I already know what two of my best movies of 2005 will be...and I haven't actually seen them yet.

They really are.

When I was in high school, there was a yellow-headed Amazon parrot who lived with a flock of crows. He had shorter wings than the crows, so he had to really flap them to keep up. He also would imitate their caws, but it was a little more high-pitched and scratchy-sounding. So it was pretty funny to see them all in flight, these sleek black birds with their one roly-poly yellow-green mate.

He was there for years. Not sure if he still is, though.

We've seen two kinds of naturalized parrots in Clearwater Florida (some sort of conure, and the oddly hardy Monk 'keet -- they even live in CT for goodness sake!) and seen a couple parrots in the wild in actual tropical locales. I love birds, especially parrots, and get a thrill watching them.

Funny, that a parrot would live with crows! Wish I'd seen that. Well, apart from the color thing, why not! Diversity is good, right :)

I've always wondered if he was so integrated that he tried to mate with them...

I'd rather not think about it :)
