    Concealed within his fortress, the emperor of Rome sees all. His fork pierces salad, pasta, custard and flesh. You know of what I speak, Titus Andronicus. A great pie, crustless, wreathed in flame. Raise your weapons, bar the gates. The eagle poops at midnight.

    The accordions have gone silent.

    Is that the aforementioned "something-something" that Tom goes?

    The Tragedy of Titus Andronicus, an amazingly crappy Shakespeare play that was made into an even crappier movie staring Anthony Hopkins. I highly recommend missing the movie because it was horrible. Basically everyone dies by their brother, sister, in-law and if I recall correctly two of the villians get baked into a pie...


    However, why someone would post about it under a capitalized Announcement would cause me to pause to consider their sanity if it were anyone by BYOB. And in the case of BYOB I believe he spouted about it because it's Thursday.

    Your eloquence causes me to weep. Your words a symphony for my eyes that bring a tear with every wayward serif. Every bit of wisdom is a mountain stream for the arid terrain of my mouth. Halls should be built in your honor, a library based upon your every syllable. The miracle of man touching Anningan's majesty a mere pittance when measured against the wealth of your brilliance. Copernicus' discovery a trifle footnote in history compared to my discovery of your post. It burned my eyes and pierced my soul with aim that would make Orion's best arrow seem a clumsy shot in a fierce gale.

    PS. In the future, could we only announce things that make sense with large titles like ANNOUNCEMENT. I thought we were all banned or something. And yes, the movie is crappy. Some kid pours ketchup on a robot. I'm pretty sure ol' Bill didn't write about robots.

    Wow... blatant display of insanity. I like it.

    Haven't read the play myself (or seen the movie), but from what I've heard, I should do neither.

    :D :D :D :D

    I rather liked the movie, but I can see how it could rub someone the wrong way. Maybe I'm just really impressed the art design and the score. The score is sheer genius.



    Tom, that was funny. :D Now, step away from the computer. Leave the apartment and venture into the wide world beyond. Go to the library. Go to the video store. Go to the mall. Go to a movie. Seriously, get out for a little bit. You're gettin' buggy. :)

    Youu know, I started to read the play once--I sure as hell don't remember any accordians. Then again, I was just kinda skimming it by the second act.

    Wow...

    Well, like I've always said, Tom, some days I really worry about you... (I think the sub-zero temps made your brain malfunction...)



    As for latest film version of Titus Andronicus, I think it was very bold and beautiful (as a costumer, I couldn't help but take notice), but without the lush production sets and costumes, I would have been seriously bored--in fact I got up periodically to do dishes, just for the sake of the occasional break. Titus is not one of Shakespeare's best, imho, so I felt all that great production work and great acting was wasted. Would have been better for Julius Caesar or something like that. I mean, Titus is right up there with the other typically forgotten plays of his (I mean, who the hell ever really willingly went to see Henry VI, right?).


    Anyway, back to the insanity...

    There I days when I need a sanity check. Just to make sure that I am not certifiable or at least not too out of my noodle to be a productive member of society.




    If you people can do it, I'm golden.

    "Reticulated Suicide Algorithm"

    Yeah, but only if you play it backwards.

    I'm just going to say OK. And move on.

    P.S. I have a copy of Titus from 1800something. As a theatre major I'm almost required to be a Shakespeare freak...and I am.

    I'm not crazy. I'm telling you, the accordions have gone silent! :(

    And Titus was a great movie. :_|

    Both points are easily debatable.

    And I'm done wasting my time on this thread.
