"I broke the china cupid"

Enjoyed watching Rebbecca AGAIN, my comment on Alfred Hitchcock Geek's post Random Observations on REBECCA : "I broke the china cupid" --revelation of New Mrs. D breaking china cupid symbolize "I's" destruction of the myth & fragility of the artificial love of original Mrs. D? New Mrs.D. initially replaces the mythological Mrs. D by substituting in the same hair style, wearing pearls, throwing costume ball, wearing dress from portrait. With each new revelation that undermines the myth, the new wife, develops her own identity as Mrs. D.

How to Make Flubber

Flubber is a gooey substance on the hand flows like a cream if you treat it gently, but breaks apart if you put more force on it. Kids love to play with it, and it is relatively easy to make, so is a great favorite at science fairs.


* 1 1/4 cup warm water
* 1 cup white glue (like Elmer's)
* 2 Tablespoons of Borax
* Food coloring (optional)


1. Make a mixture of 3/4 Cup of the water and the glue (as well as a few drops of food coloring if you like).
2. Make a second mixture of Borax in the rest of the water (1/2 cup).
3. Put the two mixtures together, preferably in a sealable plastic bag. Knead for a few minutes and presto.


* If there is some excess water, it will evaporate by itself over time.
* The stuff stays OK for about three weeks.
* Borax is in fact toxic. Do not ingest. Supervise children while making!

Who is the mysterious TCManiac?

First, I'll tell you who I am not. I am not affiliated with TCM. I am not some superbot created by software developers. I am not being paid by TCM or anyone else to dedicate my time to tweeting. I am a real flesh and blood human being. I am a real maniac for TCM. I really do keep my TV tuned to TCM 24-7. I created the TCManiacs twitter as a result of my sincere passion for watching Turner Classic Movies.

How I got started?
Well, I've been a fan of TCM since its inception. As I lay flat on my back recovering from a disabling health crisis unable to do little more than watch TV and surf the internet, I found refuge watching TCM round the clock. I soon developed an obsessive habit of keeping a browser tab open for the TCM schedule and beating Robert Osbourne's introductions to finding out facts for upcoming movies. My entire day and night became defined by the TCM line-up. At the beginning of 2009 I decided to check out twitter and lucked up on some fellow TCM fans to friend. During the 31 days Oscar I decided to dedicate a twitter just to share my TCM obsession by tweeting about every movie every day of February. I was totally overwhelmed by the number of fellow TCM maniacs that became my following. Its been a WIN WIN in everyway for me. I have had the opportunity to share fun stuff with some incredible fellow classic movie lovers and bloggers. With so many followers I became committed to maintaining the twitter schedule and finding fun stuff for upcoming TCM movies.
