I will never be Frida Kahlo .. but a girl can dream

In my fantasy life, I move to a remote area of the United States (like somewhere in New Mexico), buy a small home with a garden for tomatoes and herbs, wear long dresses, buy a faithful dog for a companion, write novels and take gorgeous, brooding young men for lovers. Please recommend to me some books with characters (real or fictional) who have lived this life.

Chinese bootleg sensationalist dvd/vcd about 9/11

Does anyone know where to download any of these Chinese sensationalist pseudo-documentaries made of 9/11 that mix real news footage with clips from blockbuster films? They freely mix fact and fiction, using news footage and illegal clips from Hollywood films. There were three made, with the titles: 1) "The Century's Greatest Catastrophe" (I've also seen it called The Century's Great Catastrophe") and 2) "Surprise Attack on America" and 3) "America's Disaster: The Pearl Harbor of the Twenty-First Century"--all made in 2001. There is a report on them in an article that was in the New Yorker. Also mention of them made here. Since they are illegal mash-ups of existing source material, I don't mind if I have to download them from 'questionable' sites. But I'd really like to consult these films for a study I am writing, and would appreciate any pointers as to where to find them.

what did movies think of tv in the eighties?

I just watched Poltergeist, which I am now thinking seems right-wing, almost Catholic. at the end of the movie, the husband kicks the tv out of the room and serene music plays. is this a common feature of the movies of the time? did people kick the tv out of the room a lot in the movies of the 80s?

What's the best Three Stooges film?

A modern day Three Stooges movie is coming out in a month or two. Saw the previews recently with my ten-year-old son and he laughed so, so hard. Until then, can you recommend any original Three Stooges film that might be better than the others, or be considered a "classic"? I've never seen any myself, and the little man and I would like to see the best example(s) of what made them so popular back in the day.
