 At the beginning of my Russian textbook, the "cast of characters"  who are going to speak to each other in dialogue throughout the book are introduced.  Here is the actual page.  Check out VIKTOR:
Wow, you know, that could mean a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT of things.....

haha, I know, seriously!

Speaking of languages, thanks for the NY Times article.

Oh AND, I was checking out the webpage of one of my former French professors, and I also found her husband's webpage (he teaches Arabic and French) and it turns out he was an Arabic consultant for an Errol Morris film!

Wow, that's awesome! I kind of want to see it. When will us mortals get a chance to do that?

The NYU CGA has these events called "Politics and Art in Cinema" every couple of weeks. The next two films they are showing are both from Hong Kong. (Blind Shaft on Feb 27th and Still Life on April 2nd). Sound like something you'd be interested in?

Lets go! There's going to be a discussion too, so you can say smart stuff while I just listen since I know nothing about cinema.
