About me

--------------------------------------
In vino veritas
--------------------------------------
Love is a dog from Hell
~ Charles Bukowski
--------------------------------------
Neo-existentialist Cartesian Zen taoistic philosophical puzzle:

- If a tree falls in the forest, and nobody is around to hear it... What colour is the tree?
[After some thousands of possible colours...]
- All colours?
- Exactly! Now what has this experience taught you?
- That philosophy isn't worth my time.
- I'm very impressed! It takes most people years to reach this point.
--------------------------------------
" "You know," says the man in the light grey suit, when his drink
arrives, "the finest line of poetry ever uttered in the history of this
whole damn country was said by Canada Bill Jones in 1853, in Baton
Rouge, while he was being robbed blind in a crooked game of Faro.
George Devol, who was, like Canada Bill, not a man who was averse to
fleecing the odd sucker, drew Bill aside and asked him if he couldn’t
see that the game was crooked. And Canada Bill sighed, and shrugged his
shoulders, and said ‘I know. But it’s the only game in town.’ And he
went back to the game." "

~Neil Gaiman, American Gods
--------------------------------------
Man goes to doctor. Says he's depressed. Says life seems harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world where what lies ahead is vague and uncertain. Doctor says "Treatment is simple. Great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go and see him. That should pick you up." Man bursts into tears. Says "But, doctor...I am Pagliacci." Good joke. Everybody laugh. Roll on snare drum. Curtains. Fade to black.
--------------------------------------
I said: "Kiss me, you're beautiful -
these are truly the last days..."

Thank you so much for the list vote ;)

It's pretty unwise to criticize Brando to a psychotic fangirl of his like me, but honestly I pretty much LOLed at your remark about him being a fat dude with cotton stuffed cheeks.

Had Jimmy lived longer, he probably would have succumbed to a similar fate; of being a washed up fatty who worked only for the cash. Besides the fact that Marlon and Jim were both attractive looking dudes who were method actors and played moody and unstable characters, they both had their own singular styles, though sometimes it's easy to claim that Jim tried to emulate Marlon.

I can name tons of instances where Marlon's acting was genuine and honest: the scene with Steiger in On The Waterfront, the "hey Stella" charade in Streetcar, the scene with Mary Murphy in the forest in the Wild One, the monologue in Last Tango, the "look how they massacred my boy" part in The Godfather, "the horror" in Apocalypse Now, and a ton of others, but now I'm on a rant so I'll just stop.

I love both Jimmy and Marlon, but I can understand if Jim appeals to you more than Marlon because he's more of an enigmatic figure, what with the early death and all, who played 3 perfect roles and expressed his angst in a very convincing sort of way.

I think the final scene in Giant was way over the top, though it was amusing to see Rock get bashed for having a change of heart, and it put a smile on my face even though I did find it to be a little too hard to swallow. Memorable and 100 percent All-American, but not very logical. I think my fave Jimmy movie is definitely Rebel Without A Cause because it's his defining role and made him into a legend. But he did reveal even more amazing chops in Giant, and was just starting to expand his acting style and slip into his persona.

And lastly, I'm just getting started on Errol's immense Flynnography. It's some of the best entertainment I've ever seen in my life, the guy's like a magnetic god on screen. His movies can even make a rainy day seem like a walk in the park, and I'm stoked to watch even more of his movies. Also, I apologize (though I'm not even really sorry) about how long this comment is. It looks like I'm raping your comments page or something, so just try and ignore my long lectures and next time avoid getting me started on subjects I love to talk about.

Ah.. I see you do enjoy Sam Fuller, indeed!

Thanks for the great commentary behind your suggestions! I've been meaning to introduce myself to Fuller for some time now. When I came across a used criterion copy of Shock Corridor I figured that would be as good a way to start as any.

Hah, when you're sober THEN you can tell me why you disagree! They might not be the best actors, but they're something special to me. I like weird people for weird reasons, c'est moi.
Posted: 2 years, 1 month ago at Feb 9 4:38
All apologies for the late reply, but wow you made such a good point! As if killing people with bombs is any less harsh. However cruel a means it was, the A bomb basically did end the conflict between the USA and Japan. Nukes are scary to think about, as they have the power to kill so many so quickly. War relies on technology so much nowadays, the days of Vlad's swordfights and epic battles are over.

Usually I base how I judge a historical figure's actions on their motive. I find that to be really important. If they had to kill some people for a greater good or just cause, then they can be forgiven. But if they did it for fun or for an illogical and ridiculous reason, it's wrong and immoral. But even that is subjective, so it's all very confusing. I don't really believe in concepts of good or evil anyways, I think most humans are combinations of both. And hey, I'm pessimistic and pragmatistic myself! Thinking about stuff analytically is very important.
Posted: 2 years, 1 month ago at Feb 6 4:34
Thanks for your insightful comment, and I actually took what you said about Vlad to mind because you stated it in a sane and non rude way, unlike previous commenters on that list.

I don't think it's the killing alone that makes him a bad person, as many other historical figures have killed large numbers of people throughout the course of time too. It's the way in which Vlad did it that makes it more sick than the rest, and the graphic tales of impaling and gruesome forms of torture. The method in which he had the murders done plays for good shock value. And I suppose Truman was somewhat of a scum himself, but lots of people look up to the guy and he's not exactly hated, in fact he's often praised. Also, he didn't have the atomic bombings done for sadistic pleasure. There was a reason, however ridiculous it was. But yeah, I do agree that killing itself doesn't particularly make someone evil and it's all open to discussion and interpretation.

Thanks, and though many of the films on my list are popular with cinephiles, most average schmucks don't watch movies like that. I was annoyed by the ignorance of a lot of people and their love for blockbusters only, so I said what the hell. A few Bunuels on my list will promote awareness!

Joo, profiiliiani on tosiaan itsellänikin ollut vaikeuksia lukea. Palaute otettu vastaan, toivottavasti pienen fiksailuni jälkeen tekstistä saa paremmin selvää, vaikkei ulkoasu enää yhtä surrealistinen olekaan.
