So what is timesnewroman? It's not the font, rather my take on the age we live in. The USA is the new Rome and the times we live in are timesnewroman.

thewife and I have been having hours of fun with 6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon. The idea is you can connect any actor to Kevin Bacon, by movies appeared in, in very few links. E.g. George Clooney was in Thin Red Line with Sean Penn, Sean Penn was in Mystic River with Kevin Bacon, that's a score of 2. It's not as easy as you'd think to get 3 and practically impossible to get 4 without either an extremely unhealthy knowledge of actors from obscure foreign movies or some researching into this via the internet. So Ershadi Homayon, who played Mr Baddi in Abbas Kiarostami�s Taste of Cherry that won the Palme D'Or at Cannes in 1997 will get you a 4. You too can have fun here.
We haven't got above 4 yet, although it is possible apparently to get an 8. If you do please let me know. Oh and you wouldn't believe how many people Eli Wallach has been in movies with!
