love is the drug download A stunning storyline, great acting and a couple of twists that will shock you! That’s Jerome Bigsby’s The Man From Earth, an intellectual Sci-fi movie based solely on the conversations of it’s handful of characters sitting in the living room of a small house and in the porch.
The movie is about Professor John Oldman David Lee Smith) who is packing up and leaving his job & home behind while moving to a new location. His colleagues show up to give him an unexpected farewell party: Harry (John Billingsley, a biologist); Edith (Ellen Crawford, a fellow professor and devout Christian); Dan (Tony Todd, an anthropologist); Art Jenkins (William Katt), an archeologist, and his student Linda Murphy (Alexis Thorpe) and Sandy (Annika Peterson), a historian who is in love with John. Dr Will Gruber an elderly psychologist also joins them a little later.
What follows is an intriguing conversation as John reveals himself to be a Cro-Magnon man, who has been living for 14000 years. Every 10 years he moves to another destination as people start to observe that he isn’t aging. John resumes his story by stating that he was once a Sumerian for 2000 years, then a Babylonian under Hammurabi, and finally a disciple of Gautama Buddha and a friend of Vincent Van Gogh.
But the killer is how he blasts the myth of Jesus Christ (Christians may not like watching this movie but us rationalists will get a kick out of it) in such a manner that it’s mind-blowing. The movie ends on a further twist, althought it’s more of a personal one for Dr. Gruber and the man is devasted by the revelation. It’s worth watching the movie for just these two scenes. They are that powerful!
After Jerome Bixby’s death the script was given to Richard Schenkman to direct on a $200,000 budget. The screenplay for this movie was conceived by Jerome Bixby in the early 1960s and was completed on his death bed in April 1998, making it his final piece of work.

Dealing with all that rubbish is hard work. I guess that was part of the reason that the interim manager (who currently manages both Kerala & Tamil Nadu processes for Quality & Training) decided that he wants to spend some time with my counterpart in the Quality department, Leslie and myself outside of the office in a casual setting. So went went to his room at Park Residency (excellent view out the window) at around 3:30 pm and ordered some drinks and some food to chill out and relax.
We ordered Signature whiskey, Smirnoff vodka, seven up, 2 plates of squid roast, chicken 65, battered prawns (dipped in koos-koos) and peanuts. It was a good decision as Leslie & I aren’t really comfortable with this guy but the guard may have lowered down a bit and it was enjoyable. Leslie & I walked a bit and then took an auto to HMT jn. I then took a bus back home.
I think my dvd problems are over. I went last evening to Chase IT Systems in Bay Pride Mall on Marine Drive. I had called them a few days back to tell them that I was facing issues with the Enter external dvd writer/player that I had bought from them on the 5th of this month.
I got there a little after 7:30 pm and they tested the drive out as I explained the problems. I was ready to pay a little extra and get an LG or Samsung model (after they knock off the price for the one I had already bought) but they didn’t have any on stock. Since I wasn’t ready to wait till Monday, they gave me another Enter dvd player and told me to use it for a few days and see if the problem persists (maybe it’s a faulty batch sent in from the manufactures or the brand itself is fucked up).
I said ok and took home a new one. It seems to be working fine and I can access files in dvds pretty well now. I’ll wait and see for a couple of days if any issues creep up before deciding to stick with this one.
