Hey guys,

Thanks for another entertaining episode. I had to wait to watch The Informant! before I listened to it--I'm strange that way. :)

Thanks, also, for reading and discussing my e-mail. It made me smile. Since I sent that I e-mail, I listened to the commentary for L'avventura and learned that the imagery used is "metonymic," not metaphoric, as I previously stated. I actually learned a lot from the commentary and found that the film was much more enjoyable on the second viewing. It's filled with subtleties that are easier to pick up the second time around.

I'm looking forward to your next episode. Keep up the good work!
