No, it's in the cellar, which is cooler in summer, warmer in winter --
and the sulfuric and nitric on the next shelf didn't fume at all.

I forgot "The Wrong Trousers".... Yes, yes, also terrific. I remembered
"Creature Comforts" because I saw it first. Both were hard acts to
follow... & IMO Were Rabbit missed. However, speaking of movies, permit
me to recommend two others: "William Eggleston in the Real World" is
actually (I thought) a stupid movie, but seeing Eggleston and his
photographs large on screen is fabulous. Tho I admit, I love Eggleston.

The other is also animation, of a sort. Prize winning independent
art film I forget the name of, animating the work of Henry Darger --
incredible art brilliantly turned into other art. At the Film Forum a
while back. I think also in DVD. You could probably Google "Henry Darger"
for the title. (If not, Film Forum is in the neighborhood. I'll ask.)
