Ralph Fiennes has just made a movie about Dickens' mistress to appease all those angry feminists who want to pay to see a tear-jerker movie about Dickens' reprehensible behaviour to his sexy little mistress. I shan't be paying to see it.
I can't be bothered with fiction any more seeing as how my attention-span is getting progressively shorter each year. But I feel I must make an effort.
What should I pick up?
As a mystery novel, I found The Name of the Rose compelling^ while still engaging 'serious matters'.
This is not about ontology, metaphysics... just linguistics and language. It is not about a WHAT we refer to but HOW we refer to what-ever.
I am sorry you had to go search for a kjwte strip that was, again, irrelevant to the core of our... discussion?

^ yes, yes!
I admit I have just awoken from a full 8 hours sleep
and I admit I have been chubbing while glancing over the last 8 or so posts
and I admit I do chub over Tchaikovsky and that I have been rationing myself over the last decade from listening to his rich yet shallow, his glorious yet clichéd orchestrating.
and that I would be basking in belamo's presence even if I wasn't displaying my Wittgensteinian beetle or my appreciative penis
Were Wittgenstein and Russell intimate?
I admit I do chub I do bask in the thought I have entered belamo's consciousness even if he does treat me the way Ignatz treats Krazy Kat.
What are you going to read, Pat? I'm curious. (The Tractatus? I think Wittgenstein was probably most intimate with Norway, never Russell.) I was trying to think of something more comical than Eco.
And, as someone who doesn't watch ballet or listen to classical music, I have to say that clip of Swan Lake is totally ridiculous. WTF-level.
That clip is just a poor embodiment of what the music is intended to arouse in your mind. Music is meant to LISTEN TO not watch. Belamo has a preference for baroque music which can be easily played as background music in cafes. But Romantic composers need to be listened to in the dark with an open mind and good Hi-Fi speakers.
In fact, there are plenty of college-educated middle class guys with a truer flair of Mr. Darcy than Firth or anyone of those above.
^ So until I see those brilliant college educated middle class guys in the role, Matthew will be my Mr Darcy
It's probably also because of Joe Wright - he makes a man (who I wouldn't think stunning otherwise - Macfadyen/McAvoy) irresistible in his films.
I remember finding him kjwte only once, in one of the earlier episodes of that series about spies he made around the same time he was featured in that Keira vehicle... it was one in which the her girl fellow spy's hand and head get literally fried in cooking oil by Slavic terrorists or something, while the he-cute gets away after standing next in line.
BTW, I love it when I speak the language of someone officially taken for an airhead like carey, but JUBbites who would pair me up with SLOPPs or pat or belamo or Fagtrouble, would abstain to comment in this case
Fayden and Avoy, like Gosling or Timberlake, are typical secondary character, not leading man material... of course you can make anyone pass for a leading man, because they are simply those who drive people behind but, then, as a plain logical consequence, you have to agree there are several different sorts of "leading man", and you can not blur boundaries without baking blunders.
Fayden is too insecure, and that shows everywhere around him, maybe because he grew up being conscious of that... people can be cruel with shorter men, but a towering MacFayden can be considered less manly than a more "classically handsome"* shorty.
*for any possible doubts concerning the term, please ask...

https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=kj...adyen&tbm=isch but in that movie he looks amazing. The clothing, his body in the clothing, his posture and especially because of his hair
In terms of looks I agree but Fayden and Avoy are in a different league in terms of acting skills to the latter two.Fayden and Avoy, like Gosling or Timberlake, are typical secondary character, not leading man material...
Not but - with, it's a combination. I think that look suits him much more than his usual style.
On the other hand I didn't think McAvoy suited the Regency look in Becoming Jane but I loved him in Atonement. So maybe it's Joe Wright's talent in casting the right looking man.
Don't tell that's such news for you that you would really think it is something I made up myself...

But I was talking about stardom fandom, not actor's acting appreciation.
He has a plump, puppy-dog face and WILL NOT age well. He will be looking like this before you know it—
No man can compete against Larry in playing Darcy!
