C'mon, Nic. Democrats and Pretensions go hand in hand...Snap out of it. Just keep repeating "Yes we can (Sieg Obama)!"

Vote for Olver and Kerry and keep on lookin' down on people. It's the "liberal" way...

Read an Eagle editorial, maybe that will help you get your mind right again, just don't stop bein' all snooty, n stuff.

Hey Nic, dry the tears. You could have bought a pass a couple of months ago and seen as many films as you wanted in 3 days, for an affordable price - 150, or 10 dollars a film if you saw five films a day. Instead you didn't plan ahead as others did, and now you complain about elitism. Did you ever stop to think that the lobby had to be cleared because it was overcrowded and the film festival organizers were doing the responsible thing? I was there on Sunday at 6 pm and it was pretty clear that the people who did not have passes or tickets were not going to clear the rush line anyway, and the lobby's capacity to hold people had been reached.

You were not being treated poorly, just fairly and with public safety in mind. People like you who complain about how the Berkshires are unfair and elitist are really just whining losers. Make good on your threat and leave, and don't let the door hit your butt on the way out.

BIFF's expansion to Pittsfield means more seats and more movies for everyone! Next year plan to come on up to Pittsfield to see BIFF films.

SO why were you hanging out in the Castro? Do you have a wide stance?

Not everyone has $150. to spend on entertainment and I know of very few people really want to see five films in one day. Some people have to work if they even have jobs.

No, your boyfriend hired me to find you. He heard you went out there to go "shrimping." Little did he know you were out cruising with Carmen and Jimmy right here in the great Northeast, Efagitus.
Really? That's all you have? You know you want to hang out at Cafe Flore.

You're right. But Nic could have bought a 10 dollar ticket in advance instead of waiting till the last minute. There were plenty of local folks there too. Remember that it's a film festival and people were expected to come here for it.

Someone is actually complaining about not being able to see Euroschlock films and anti-American so-called documentaries? What a hoot!
