I suggest you watch the second one more than once.  I think it got a little bit better with each viewing.  (funny that i've watched it enough times to give that advice) Wink

Approved list updated.

I realised I haven't filled out my own questionnaire yet so I sat down to watch the first movie so I could decide on my favorite quote(s), I'm a sucker for quotes. I think I'm going to have to say the entire rope speech and anything that comes out of the Tourettes bartenders mouth... hmm and the courthouse scene oh and after they shoot that cat and Rocco said "is it dead?". Guess it didn't norrow it down to much  Roll Eyes

Only a few more days for sign ups. I'm still surprised more folks haven't been interested, but going to hold out for a few more days to see if anyone else squeaks in.

I wish I could get my Hubby into swapping, well maybe not then we'd spend way to much money on crafting.

I finally watched the second movie. I'm kind of on the fence about liking it. It had some moments but to me if felt like they were just trying to hard to make it live up to the first movie.

I totally agree! The chick in the second one bugged me. And I wasn't a fan of the fact that they "spliced" her in to every shooting scene. A couple, like the first movie, would have been MUCH better!

She annoyed me too. I was all set to like a kick ass female character but they missed the boat I think.

One thing I did really like is they had everyone from the first show, no sub-in actors or anything.

I'm with you both...there were not only scenes, but specific lines where you could pick out exactly what line from the first movie they were trying to mimic.  and yet it is another boondock saints and i like it just for that. Wink

and it does get better with each viewing i think, as long as you don't expect it to live up to the original.

but yeah, that woman is annoying. Wink

I already have partners layed out in my head so they should be sent out soon after the swap is closed. Planning on closing it later this evening.

K folks the swap is closed and partners info has been sent. If you didn't get it please let me know.

I normally try to pair people up based first on what crafts they can do to any request, with our group being so small it was more who fell together so hopefully everyone is happy with their partner.

Partners:
lady4feet ~ ElizabethsMom
Lo-fi dream ~ JustDontChange
norahkate ~ Kayoubi

There is a month for crafting, note that there is no mandatory check in (I may send everyone a PM in the middle to make sure you're alive though) so please if at any time you feel like your partner may be flaking/a possible flake let me know so we can deal with it before sendouts!

This is a quiet board... but I've been in large swaps that are super quiet too so go figure.

I can't believe your almost done. I have one med I'm finishing up as we speak i type, some smalls started and an idea floating around in my head I haven't decided how I want to execute it yet.

Wife and I re-watched the first one so many (more) ideas, I gotta learn when to stop.

If it don't end with "ashes to ashes", "this could be an international incident", or "your bail is set at..." You're probably doing it right.

well, i made negative progress this weekend when i decided to scrap one of my finished projects, but then came back with a vengeance yesterday and finished everything!  i did something similar to the scrapped project and love the results...just didn't get a chance to package everything up, so i will do that tonight and send tomorrow.  so much for being done early, but at least i'm on time and not scrambling!

Sorry I wasn't around yesterday, my friend and I went to the Georgia aquarium then decided to go to Ikea and the International Market so I didn't get home until very late.

I've updated the list on page one, for most of us life got in the way of sending yesterday it would seem. Everyone who is sending late please keep me and your partner updated on your status. And remember to keep those DC numbers (or receipts if sending international).
