Been catching up on some reading.
An interesting little treasure: Caverns, Cauldrons and Concealed Creatures - A Study of Subterranean Mysteries In History, Folklore, and Myth by Wm. Michael Mott.
Thanks to it I now have to read some HP Lovecraft and Edgar Rice Burroughs to name just a few. And here I always thought Burroughs only wrote Tarzan novels. embarassed
And I highly recommend "X Minus One" radio shows that should be available free on the web in MP3's. Great series to listen to while working out, jogging, etc.

Anyway enough off topic.

Klat,
The battle for the hearts and mind of people can be very funny at times.

.lol..bro..It has been a learning experience..And you were very very instructive..for those of us who stuck it out..I saw that X-1 thing which is why I poked fun with the dark side of the moon..comment..anyone who has not learned something.should get a packing box with pre paid postage and carefully retrofit their PC into it and then gingerly return it back to the manufacturer..they have no business behind a keyboard..

Being the incorrigibly modest being I am..To the antfarm people .. I would improve their slogan...
We animate to innovate..
We innovate to inspire..

How does that sound..
cool maybe I should stick to shelving books.

Which also reminds me to ask all of my fellow ARC members here on lengthy but well-earned hiatus, the answer to a vexing question harboured at some length in my craw, to wit:

When referring to my Mum's sister:

Is she properly called

my 'ANT'

or

my 'AUNT?'

(oughnt?)




Ont.

Unless you live where they say Ant. Then it's Ant.

Don't know aboot Great Britain. Never been there. Hmmm. Must get on that...

I think your aunt's aunt might be your second cousin thrice removed, or maybe just your granny. It gets too complicated too fast fer me. I try not to pay too much attention to my relatives anyway. They are all crazy. But then so are everybody else's relatives. I'm just thankful I'm sane. What?? Who said that?

Oont is Canadian, ain't it? I mean, Eh?

Hi Sys. I can't say consciously. undecided
Interesting you asking. One old idea in the idea pile/folder was an adaptation of the Seven Deadly Sins based on the drone saga. Way too big to tackle but now you got me thinking again. laugh

My goodness, you really are a serious film follower..even Klat, and not because of simple exposure with the occasional nostalgic look back.. but very in depth. Interesting propositions we have here that the humor in effect, corrects the intitial misdirection. This choice reveals the tremendous misperception of the Fritz Lang work as pure sci-fi, but like George Orwells a very applied sci fi and socio-political statement. I recall some writers had to do that , from Nostradamus, to several in Russia to avoid arrest. Here a piece was deliberateley left out..perhaps even then they knew of power of media, or it was simple cost savings. Still, They kept the placenta, a very good and profitable placenta, and threw the baby out with the bathwater. By metaphor..we have the baby now.
Very nicely done.. Your attention to details is remarkable. Half the NY philharmonic is on top of his hat. smiley
Or..I could be wrong and that would make my post doubly funny, and very appropriate..win win..
grin
So many examples..but I found this exceptionally funny in style and substance..
Nabokov's interview. (08) The New York Times Book Revie w [196

http://lib.ru/NABOKOW/Inter08.txt_with-big-pictures.html
Drug addicts, especially young ones, are conformists flocking together in sticky groups, and I do not write for groups, nor approve of group therapy (the big scene in the Freudian Farce); as I have said often enough, I write for myself in multiplicate, a not unfamiliar phenomenon on the horizons of shimmering deserts. Young dunces who turn to drugs cannot read Lolita, or any of my books; some in fact cannot read at all. Let me also observe that the term "square" already dates as a slang word, for nothing dates quicker than radical youth, nor is there anything more Philistine, more bourgeois, more ovine than this business of drug duncery. Half a century ago, a similar fashion among the smart set of St. Petersburg was cocaine sniffing combined with phony orientalities. The better and brighter minds of my young American readers are far removed from those juvenile fads and faddists. I also used to know in the past a Communist agent who got so involved in trying to wreck anti-Bolshevist groups by distributing drugs among them that he became an addict himself and lapsed into a dreamy state of commendable metempsychic sloth. He must be grazing today on some grassy slope in Tibet if he has not yet lined the coat of the fortunate shepherd.

The whole page is exceptionally witty.

Just Buddy Holly up there (I think). laugh
Thanks for the compliment. My brain and eyes are now hurting. Heck, I can't even look at my carpeting without seeing the battle of Gettysburg somewhere in it. grin
