A Movie for the Birds

    I took a break from studying today and watched Alfred Hitchcock’s 1963 The Birds.  If I were you, I’d wait for the book.  Then leave the book at the library.  

    The only thing about the movie I found interesting was that even though it was fairly archaic, implausible, and slightly ridiculous, I still felt a little tense. 

    Honestly, the only way to have fun at a "horror" movie is to have a lovely young lass sitting next to you who practically jumps out of her skin at the "frightening" moments.  I had one friend a long time ago who would practically jump into my lap (and we weren’t even dating!). 

    Anyone who knows anything knows that the scary part happens a couple moments after the music fades away.  Just cover your ears, because part of the fright is the sudden blaring or screeching music at the scary moment.

    I’ve been to the town of Bodega (Bodega Bay) and looked at the house used in filming The Birds. The town is about 150 miles north from San Francisco along the coast. I recommend the BBQ’d Oysters if you ever visit.

    Thanks, Jeff! I’ll keep that in mind. At least I hope to get to visit you while you’re out on the left coast!
