Love To Change The World... or at least their world, as they hopelessly fall for each other... but extenuating circumstances may well prevent their desired harmonic convergence... (not sure why I am doling out all these hippie references... just Work With Me, Annie...)
Anyway, mosey on over to the PerfectStrangers blog for the ===POST=== regarding the GingerBinge viewing... and also make sure to check out the 'pages', as there are new screencaps, publicity stills, and even a few GIFs... I'm dangerous with that deal, y'alllllllll...
Hope everyone has a great week and weekend wherever you may be... and stay tuned on FB for the next 'filmpick' for the continuing GingerBinge Summer... which is invariably going to ooze into autumn... GingerAutumn sounds cool anyway, right?

...Hope everyone had a great weekend, including the Gingertennial+5 festivities! Honestly, we just cleaned up some around the house, which in some weird way I think Ginger would have appreciated...

And with that...hope all you Gingerologists out there have a great Gingery weekend!!!

Well, I'll write up a few things over on the DBOL blog... and will update this post when THAT post is... posted...
UPDATE: HERE it is...
...and a general FYI - it's a bit much to watch a film AND do the blog 'overviews', so... henceforth on the Summer GingerBinge I may well watch one night, and do the 'overview' stuff the next... just sayin'...
Until next time...

ANYWAY, Hu will view what most (including Ginger) consider G&F's best film... I've seen it a gazillion times, but... will look for 'subtleties' to report... sure there are plenty.
UPDATE: HERE is the link to the GingerBinge Summer review for SwingTime...
Hope everyone is having a great weekend, and remember... one week away from Gingertennial +5!!!

It's amazing that I've been able to keep things going for so long... not that there's EVER a shortage of Gingery Goodness, mind you, but in a medium which things seem to come and go at a rapid pace (i.e., the internet), it's cool to have this site persist, even with the barrage of awesomeness that is FaceBook.
I am choosing three different GingerPics as candidates for the header... and (I think y'all probably know where this is headed...) a popular VOTE will determine the new Gingerology Header Pic!!! I'll post the 'official vote' post with the pictures up for candidacy in a few days (probably this weekend...)
...Keep It Gingery, y'all!!!

...I'll post the "post-view-review" over on the MagDoll blog, and UPDATE here, as usual...
UPDATE: HERE is the post over on the MagnificentDoll blog...
Everybody have a VERY Gingery fourth!!!

I viewed it pretty late Saturday evening, so... I will post the GingerBlog overview in the morning... and I'll update here to add the link.
UPDATE: ...the link to the 'overview' for the GingerBinge viewing of Suicide Fleet is HERE...
Hope everyone has an incredible Independence Day!!!
It is my hope that I can continue to make 'G-ology' interesting and informative regarding the 'Beautiful Science' of VKM, which is SUCH a great topic!!! ...And remember, your comments are what make Gingerology click - so keep cranking them out!
Thanks again, JW
