I'm so sorry, Ah jus can't resist mah-self.




Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

By all means.

Especially if one comes bearing mustaches. Especially especially a Clark Gable mustache. All I can say is, one will be taking one's life into one's hands.

My brain, on the other hand, is up for grabs. But only after I'm done with it and leave my body to science (if science will have me, that is Blush )

It's not surprising that people find it racist. It's surprising that people get so butthurt about a movie made 75 years ago that wasn't about slavery. As you said, it was made in a time when that was prevalent in the culture. That doesn't make it evil or without other valid merit as a work of literature. I'm certain that book/movie is not lauded as a work of fiction depicting the glory of slavery by the vast majority of people with a functioning brain.

Yanno, after 9/11 there was a list of movies and songs stations pulled?

These included Hitchcock's North By Northwest and James Taylor's song Fire and Rain. The former because of the one scene where Cary Grant is chased by a plane, and latter because of the one line, "sweet dreams of flying machines in pieces on the ground".

Eventually as time passed the movies were shown again and people weren't so raw.

Not a big deal that Gone with the Wind was pulled from a movie theater.

It'll be back -- people will go see it or not. I wouldn't go see it. Not because of the content, I own it, but because it's a long fucking movie.

I made that mistake when I saw Cleopatra (without knowing how long that fucker was -- lucky me it was on Netflix) -- my life stopped for nearly 6 hours!!!!!!!


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

I meant the sex marijuana part. I find it particularly enjoyable, and not meaningless at all. But granted, it does make my brain go haywire on occasion.

If you swap "sex" and "marijuana" in your post, that's pretty much my experience as well.

This is the one I always go to with when comparing poet to minstrel. In this case, the poet's rendition rings, well hollow, while the minstrel conveys the gist of the shit prechewed as spoonfed pablum ready to be grokked by all who listen.
