    Which leads you to another movie, V for Vendetta.
    I figured you were the sort of fellow who'd be familiar with Modernist poetry.

    V for Vendetta amuses me in part because supposedly anarchist dudes by the boatload have adopted the commercialized V mask as a symbol of their rebellion (in particular those masks appearances at things like OWS). I wonder how many of them stop and realize that their masks are putting big bucks into the pockets of a major corporation.

    Good movie though. It was one of the first ones I saw with my partner (my pick, in fact).

    • V for Vendetta sucked. 99% Of the movie had me going "WTF?" and the other 1% was "Aww, her hair". It's like the only significant moment in the film was the shaving scene and that just made me feel sick.
      In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

      • ^I wonder what you'd think of the graphic novel it was based off of, then. I loved both, but the novel definitely makes more sense.

          Is his last name Te?
          I like badgers, books and booze, more or less in that order.

            Haha no, it's very Jewish. I thought "Ira" was a Hebrew name because of that.

              Does no-one remember Ira Gershwin? Most famous Ira ever!

              I do think of old Jewish men when I hear the name though.

              • Now that you say that, I do know who that is, but I never think of him!

                • See, I knew there was a reason I liked you all. Gershwin references and people who know their Eliot? Awesomeness.

                  • Stepfather is a jazz encyclopedia, so one name I remember him talking about is Ira Sullivan.

                    BTW, Owly, my FB post this morning was that when Peter Jackson finishes up the Hobbit trilogy, he's going to embark on a Red Wheelbarrow tetralogy...

                    I get all dark around my birthday most years and walk around quoting Prufrock and feeling sorry for myself. Then it passes. I listen to the Allman's Eat a Peach and unroll my trousers!

                      Heh. My dad's a jazz fanatic. He has a huge enlargement of a portrait of Jellyroll Morton in his dining room.

                      Massive giggles over the Red Wheelbarrow.

                        So you're going to visit me for your birthday then...
                        The quoting of Pufrock would be irresistible.

                        Then we could listen to the Allman's Eat a Peach and you could unroll your trousers and head home.

                        • Best Author's Defense EVER

                          Upon being told that his/her work of art (currently being sold on Amazon) contained horrible misspellings, changed verb tenses within the same sentence, abdicated on punctuation altogether, and was completely incomprehensible, the author cried, "Hey, I'm not Tolkien!"

                          From now on, every time Lady Friend tells me that I need to flesh out a character more, or expand on a description, or delivers any sort of criticism concerning the molten gold that flows from my paws, I am going to squawk, "HEY, I'M NOT TOLKIEN!" and feel vindicated.

                          Love it.

                          • i've got a long-time online friend who wants to be a writer and dabbled in book writing about 2 years ago and used me as sounding board/editor

                            i bet you make lady friend roll her eyes as much he did me
                            beautiful

                            Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

                            • Lady Friend rolls her eyes at me ALL THE TIME. Although it's usually because we're at the store together, and I'm moving my eyes pathetically between her and the cart to relay a silent message.

                              She also rolled her eyes when I asked for a catapult or trebuchet for Christmas. I even sent her links to a website where these things can be purchased.
