To gather or collect swiftly and unceremoniously; grab
I don't usually take anything and not return it. But there is something that was taken from me a little over two years ago and it is now time for it to be returned. This is a DVD copy of the perfect 2002 release, “Laurel Canyon”. You know who you are. And for those of you who haven't seen this movie, I have to urge you to do so now. I'd like to especially know what you think of the ending, as it is somewhat ambiguous.
On an unrelated topic, I think it's pretty great that this J.D. Salinger guy basically wrote/published this landmark book when he was like 32 years old and then subsequently turned his back on it for the rest of his life. And now he is dead and he had this whole life that was secret to everyone but those he let into it. Like everyone else does.
