Writer's Block: Time after time

If you fall in love with a book or movie, do you tend to watch/read it again and again? If so, what's your upper limit on repeats?

Dear gods, yes. I'm pretty sure I saw Moulin Rouge at least ten times. In the theatre. I think the final count was eleven. There is no upper limit. Why should there ever be an upper limit?

And I go through phases and re-fall in love with something for a while. Right now I'm revelling in the wonder that is this beautiful thing. This time I'm in love with the cinematography.

I mean, can you blame me? Behold my current desktop wallpaper:

I wonder if there's any way I could recreate that shot with my ordinary little Canon Powershot. Maybe the boat tours go under those bridges. Definitely checking it out next year time.

Oh, and this is an interesting read, even if you've never seen H2O. Even if you never plan to see it. Here's an exerpt:

“There was a lot of wailing and crying about Chrétien saying, ‘don’t go into Iraq’ – and I happen to agree with him on that. It was an unnecessary engagement. All these people were saying ‘oh, no the Americans are going to hate us!’ Of course they’re going to say that they’re pissed off at us’ but it doesn’t mean anything. It doesn’t mean they're going to tear up trade agreements. They DO stuff with us. We’re interconnected. And we have a right to have our own opinion. We’re always trying to find that dividing line – and what I was kind of trying to say with H2O was that we have to watch it, because we live in the shadow of a gigantic power unlike the world has ever known. I would argue maybe even to rival Rome.”
