James, You need to let us know what happened to Tracie??


She died in a car accident in October 1988. We were together from January 1987 until her death. I haven't written the 1987 or 1988 commentaries yet, but I imagine she will feature quite prominently in them since she was a huge movie fan and I inherited some of my appreciation for certain films and genres from her. I don't plan to dwell on her death. It's a fact so it has to be stated, but the goal is not to to turn these columns into something maudlin.


Oh wow....i feel bad now. Sorry to hear that James. Sounds like she meant alot to you.

I too can remember January 28, 1986, waking up to my clock radio for class and hearing the news then running the to living room of the house I was renting with my college buddies to get the latest, holding out hope.

What amazes me in reading these columns is the detail James remembers about things, especially the dates & theaters of movies seen. I can remember having seen Top Gun at the Eric Queen in Valley Forge but I certainly would have no hope of remembering the date! Heck I can't even tell you the date I went to see Dark Knight in IMAX last year and that was one of only two movies I ventured out to see (I vastly prefer my home theater as a movie watching experience). James do you keep a journal of these events or do dates and details like that just stick in your head? Amazing if it's from memory, to me anyway.

Hey James,
I just wanted to know...How on earth do you remember everything so well....Like you give a monthly account of your experiences 25 odd years back.I guess I have a terrible memory...I cant even remember much of 2001
