Lucky Guess - Sesta 1, Part II
"You heard nothing from that knave," said Norissa, "and you're not seeing her again either." She hauled Diane four floors down—with no hesitation or diè wådes to spare anyone. "And for the last forlorn time, stop thinking about those minds from Mensa!"
"But they once promised—"
"Look here, Diane: I just...don't...care!" she shrieked with a grunt. "And besides, neither does anyone around this drab place."
"I...I still do."
"Oh, what in the world does it matter?" she said. "You carry on like that—you'll soon fall off a ledge."
"I don' wan' die!" bawled Diane.
"But your brain sure looks like it. That alone'll confine you to this town—forever."
The girl grappled the handle rail for a while. "But this here sure beats stayin' in town!"
"Like Mr. Dickens it does," continued Norissa. "I mean, I can hear Sebers and Jelsom laughing at you now."
"Well, I don't!"
"Yes, you have." Norissa towed her back in line, away from a vis

Lucky Guess - Sesta 1, Part I
For Aunty Baba and Mr. Elwin (in Dominica),
and the entire staff at
Writer's Digest (in Cincinnati).
Where would I be now without you guys?

To Harold Smith (1926–2005), and his family too...
May we keep on looking.

If you need the money, you could get the money fairly
easy. You could get a million dollars. And you could get
it in cash. I know where it could be gotten. I mean, it's
not easy, but it could be done.

But the question is: who [on earth] would handle it?
Any ideas on that?

—Richard Nixon, March 1973
(as told to John Dean)

Hope, and hopelessness, persist despite the facts.
—Mason Cooley, 1984
A little stash of artwork had gone a long, long way. But where to?
"They received word on 3MJ," Roberta told Diane at the Ambassade. "That's what you heard those Belgian ladies chatting on."
"What's 3MJ, huh?"
"I'll give you three guesses," she said. "Nothin' more, nothin' less

Hungry for Hungary
Gaiam to distribute famous cartoon studio's works
By Carlos Guarado
Head Entertainment Writer
Six months ago, Sony Pictures Rogatia acquired the West Indian rights to Croatian animator Milan Blažeković's complete catalog of films, including Lapitch the Little Shoemaker (from the now-defunct Sony Wonder) and its TV spin-off. Yesterday, Byahaut's Gaiam Antilles started embarking on a similar venture with PannóniaFilm's vast library of diverse productions.
"As European animation continues to make its impact on the Rogatian psyche," said Gaiam's local President, Henry Groschette, "we [here] feel honoured to continue that influence with one of the field's most renown institutions."
Thanks to this EC$47.5 million licensing/distribution deal with the Hungarian outlet, the new branch of the U.S. lifestyle enterprise will gain access to hundreds of shorts, feature movies and TV episodes. Among them are children's features such

Luko director: New HCP channels are superior to U.S. outlets
By Carlos Guarado
Head Entertainment Writer
82-year-old Henrick Marhamm, director of the locally-produced animated smash Luko, is feeling the same sentiments as many of his countrypeople when it comes to the recent decline of American programming, especially children's shows.
"I was very, very disgruntled," he told ZDF reporters yesterday, during a central Berlin press conference for his film, "once I came across a recent airing of Cartoon Network's Flapjack in my Sheraton room. I set forth to make a new masterpiece--and is that how low they've stooped to nowadays? Even Nina Paley had much better creativity to show for it!"
Marhamm also complained how formulaic live-action "tween" shows have become on its long-established competitors, Disney Channel and Viacom's Nickelodeon. "Every time, it's the same blasted, annoying, high-pitched, obnoxious youth--not so in our traditional s

New Year brings new record for local film
By Carlos Guarado
Head Entertainment Writer
Henrick Marhamm may just as well be the next Hayao Miyazaki: on this first (2-day) weekend of 2009, his animated family romance, Luko, surpassed live-action summer stalwart Timeframe as Rogatia's--and the Caribbean's--highest-grossing release of all time.
The story of a young American squirrel couple who grow up raising a family in the islands, it has taken in EC$37 million (US$13.877 million) during its first four weeks alone. (Timeframe has made similar figures over a six-month period.) Elsewhere in the region, it has amassed an astounding US$2.8 million across 13 territories. Sold-out screenings of Luko have also dominated Venezuela's box office for a fortnight.
Back in the Drop, critically-acclaimed animated documentary Waltz with Bashir, from Israeli director Ari Folman, held strongly in second place. Locally, this has become distributor Son

Quality films, high PTAs drive local box office to all-time high
By Carlos Guarado
Head Entertainment Writer
It was really hard to tell what was more crowded: the schedules or the very long queues. Either way, more than a million Rogatians--some 65% of the population--managed to flock to the island's highest-grossing weekend ever recorded.
As was the case three weeks ago, a trio of animated features ruled the roost. Opening day-and-date with the U.S., Disney's CGI film Bolt was the new alpha dog with EC$1.9 million from 29 venues. In second place was Bollywood cousin, Roadside Romeo, with another $1.2 million. The European 2D comic-book adaptation, Asterix and the Vikings, settled to third.
Vampire romance Twilight, based on the Stephenie Meyer books, debuted in fifth place. The hype has evidently not caught on with islanders the same way it has in the States--and all for good reason, considering its almost mixed rev

Records galore in pre-Independence weekend; arthouse premieres sold out
By Carlos Guarado
Head Entertainment Writer
Each of this week's top three films in Rogatia are animated features--this time, each of them come from different countries. Such a feat has not happened at the local box-office since November 1986, when An American Tail, The Great Mouse Detective and Transformers: The Movie opened to then-impressive numbers.
Representing India, and the #1 position (for the second week), was the impressing runaway success that has become Roadside Romeo. Bollywood's first major CGI feature, it was produced by Yash Raj Films and animated by Tata Elxsi's VCL, with assistance from the Disney Studios. Last weekend, its debut surpassed Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon as the island's biggest ever for an Asian release. However, the news and reviews behind Romeo have become less encouraging elsewhere, even in its native country.

Ambitious expansion due for Antilles, other theatres
By Darrin Goulay
Construction of four new screens (and a new floor) will commence tomorrow at Hycam's prestigious Antilles Cinema, located in Trouvaille's CBD area. The plan was announced by its management as early as May, but the deal with Riley's Construction of Leesdale was not finalised until late in September.
Like many other theatre owners around Rogatia, Head Manager Luke Ionas has been aware of the need for more screens at the facility, even at a time when more films (mainly arthouse and foreign fare) have begun to congest the once-freegoing schedules.
"Even though we have two staircases going up to the roof," he told ZHCP Radio News last night, "there's another one right in the middle of the north side." This should give the builders an advantage, he added, because it was actually reserved for future development at the theatre.
One of the island's first moviehouses, it opened in May 1946 with two screens; found
