I keep noticing that in American TV and films, people increasingly say 'Hey!' instead of 'Hi!'. I've heard it now and then in UK stuff as well. I first noticed this ages ago in ALLY MCBEAL and thought it was an eccentricity of the characters, but I guess it's now a pretty common thing.
I never heard it when I was growing up in New York. Wonder where and why it started....
Watched a recent remake of NGHTMARE ON ELM STREET because I felt too mindless, as usual do do anything worthwhile. It was mildly entertaining;could have been worse.
