Really fun to watch on a 42-in TV...

Chicago! (Thanks, TCM!) I wasn't so sure about my purchase earlier today--who cares about local news and "Bar Rescue" writ larger--but... "Chicago" looked really special.
Flashback to 2002 when "Chicago" first came out: My friend Kathy and I went to see it at a theater and loved it so much that afterward we immediately drove to a Walmart to find the soundtrack. We then went back to her place to listen (and rather drunkenly dance to) over and over again, driving her husband, who by this time was trying to sleep, nuts. A scene that was later repeated almost exactly on Oscar night, except that time the incredibly patient man had been forewarned and had thus steeled himself.
