34 You thought the leaden winter would bring you down forever



But you rode upon a steamer to the violence of the sun



And the colours of the sea bind your eyes with trembling mermaids



And you touch the distant beaches with tales of brave Ulysses



How his naked ears were tortured by the sirens sweetly singing




For the sparkling waves are calling you to kiss their white laced lips

55 Who was that Miranda actress who was in Lord of the Rings? Miranda Richardson? Anyway, that's who I thought of when I read the title.

She seems rather calm, if she's worried about her husband/lover on that ship. It might be that she lives on that coast, and anytime a shipwreck happens, it means the entire village gets to scamper in and salvage whatever they can. See a scene like that in one of the Poldark novels.

Posted by: t-bird at October 30, 2019 09:47 AM (NAs56)

81 I always find Waterhouse enjoyable on many levels. The scenes from mythology and literature, like today's, provide an instant context. In "Miranda" he uses earth tones that aren't bright but still have vibrancy. The look and color of nature is so appropriate as Miranda had lived her life away from people and their creations. I love the Pre-Raphaelite use of ideal and subtle skin tones as well as the romantic poses for the characters.

There is a complexity to Waterhouse's paintings because all the elements, figures, backgrounds, adornments, etc., figure strongly into the final effect of the work. As the viewer pays more attention, more elements are revealed.

Thanks, CBD. This painting is wonderful to spend time with.

117 It might be that she lives on that coast, and anytime a shipwreck happens, it means the entire village gets to scamper in and salvage whatever they can. See a scene like that in one of the Poldark novels.
Posted by: Wolfus Aurelius at October 30, 2019 09:43 AM (ClOmq)

Shipwreck salvage was a big thing back in the day. A ship's strongbox had serious money in it, wages for the entire crew usually - and there would be crew/passenger possessions, cargo, and valuable fittings to plunder as well.

On top of that, some quality lumber to build an extension to your cottage and a new chicken coop with.

He's admitting there's never been a scientific basis for the endless climate drought scares? He went on to say that in Australia, droughts are not increasing, and there's no drying trend in one hundred years of data. He's also admitting the models can't predict extremes in rain either.

197 100 The girl is Miranda, from the Shakespeare play Tempest. Her father created a storm that is wrecking the ship. In the play she's heartbroken and begs her father to stop the storm, but unlike most of Waterhouse's work there's not a lot of emotion here.

I don't know about that, but there's an interesting new video of Barry going around Twitter where he warns about becoming "too woke" and dehumanizing people who have different politics.

If you ran a poll of under 30's and 70% came back as pro Socialism it means nothing. Run the same poll and ask the same question but this time to the ones who say yes, ask for $10 to give to someone who makes less than they so you can record them as yes.

As for "kids these days" and socialism, most of them think of socialism as "I get free shit for free".

I played Orlando in our HS production of As You Like It. Even took it to the state Thespian convention at the University of Alabama.

287 So, Epstein WAS murdered.

Well, probably, but again the only thing the medical examiner can state is that the wounds are consistent with strangulation. They cannot conclusively state what happened, only give highest probability.

Granted, sometimes that probability is extremely high (this man has eighteen bullet wounds in his head) but in this case its a judgment call based on best evidence.

288 One of the best interpretations of Prospero, inspired by the speech in which he lays down his wand, and the belief that "The Tempest" was Shakespeare's final play, is that Prospero is intended to represent Shakespeare himself, and his "magic" is his words, the means through which he can create entire worlds.

In that reading of it, Prospero's laying down of his wand, at the end, is Shakespeare laying down his pen for good.

Can I ask you a question ?

How big is your house ?"

Hi JT,

Quick answer: not big enough. Mrs. JTB is on a constant hunt for horizontal space that doesn't have books stacked on it.

Actually, we are starting to go through our books to thin out the herd. If we can just get enough shelf space to handle the books stacked against the walls, it will be a help.

BTW, we donate the books to the closest fire station if they want them. Also, nursing homes and the local senior center.

326 It helps to read an annotated Shakespeare, then watch a play.

I agree, if you read through it first, you can really get the language better and the notes help you understand the inside humor and references. Then the film or play version really comes alive. Thanks to a high school class I was able to do that with Romeo & Juliet and Hamlet.

Saw Hamlet live with Derek Jacobi playing the young prince in Ashland, Oregon. I don't know how my parents afforded it but I'm so glad I had the opportunity. I wish I could get down there every year for the festival.

I've always liked that interpretation. It lends poignancy to an already emotional final scene. I also like the way he 'prepares' the next generation (of playwrights) for the realities of the world. The wand could be a passing of the baton.

Why on earth would you doubt it?

Look, pretty much everyone on earth thinks the Epstein death was at best extremely sketchy. They were even kind of blatant about it, pulling him off protective detail and the camera going off.

And what is being done about it? What outcry is there? People act like this is a movie, and if some conspiracy was revealed then heads would roll and it would have serious consequences.

There aren't any in real life. If you're powerful enough and control the media and popular culture, you can get away with anything, no matter how hamfisted or obvious it is. What are YOU going to do about it? Nothing, there's nothing any of us can do.

362 I coulda swore that a garrote was used for an instant beheading. The only ones I've seen pics of are a length of piano wire with a short handle on either end.

You come up behind the victim, cross the wire into a loop, pull it over the victim's head to the throat and yank. Blech. What a way to go and what a mess.

364 Plays are very difficult to read, I think. Plus, Shakespeare's language is so old its a trial to understand for the first act or so.

It is easier to follow if you watch a good production. I watched several of Santa Cruz' Shakespeare in the redwoods plays, and they're quite fun.

A couple of years ago my PBS station ran Last Tango in Halifax, in which Jacobi starred as a retired widower who meets the woman he fell in love with way back in 9th grade or something, and they fall in love and plan to be married . . . and their grown children are very much put out by it. Set in Yorkshire, so the dialect is different from standard BBC, but Jacobi and the others are easy to understand. Kind of fun.

**********

If you're looking for poetic purity go read some Frost or Longfellow. If you want a vehicle for cheap laughs, potty humor and puns, I'm your guy.

Nonetheless, 'Dublin' was a necessary element of the nuanced construction of the piece, in order to link the subtle imagery of the painting, its drama and the setting with the colloquial "bun in the oven" punchline of the limerick. The thinly veiled humor juxtaposed with the darker symbolic realism. This justifies the near-rhyme usage. You must learn to look for the 'balance' in the work, as Kris might say.

There's a lot of cartilage and muscle there. Try using a wire to cut a steak in half some time, and that's just muscle. You can do it, but its not easy, and the wire is just as likely to break, especially at the handle where its taking the most strain.

414 If Shakespeare plays are too difficult to read, start with his sonnets. But read them out loud. You might be amazed at how effective they are and how a change of emphasis can make such a difference.

Also, watch a good production. The Kenneth Brannaugh productions of "Henry V" and "Much Ado About Nothing" are enjoyable and beautifully filmed. But to my mind their greatest value is the delivery of the lines. It adds so much to understanding the plays and demonstrates how powerfulo Shakespeare's word are.

I was working in the garage with my 24 yo son yesterday and he played this from his playlist.

Me: Alvin Lee... Shit, turn it up, that's one of my favorites.
Him: Who's Alvin Lee?

At least he knew it was Ten Years After. He also likes Led Zeppelin, so there is some hope his generation isn't completely lost.

actually decapitate someone with a wire. I'm not sure a human could
actually do it.

If you got lucky and the wire went between two neck vertebrae. Not much there to stop it. Bone is different, naturally. Even cutting down to the bone would ruin your day.


I'm sure it would take a large someone to do it along with some training.

Hi TJM, Like you I like his delivery for the most part. What I especially like is that the other actors can deliver their lines so effectively. I think of Brian Blessed, in full armor, delivering the demands to the French court or the 'wooing' scene between Brannaugh and Emma Thompson. Brannaugh the director made sure the words and their delivery were clear and given their full emotional power.

One of the most recognizable, and dumbest, TV theme songs ever.

529 "Out of all of that movie that I love, her stand against the Witch King is my favorite moment.
I've seen that movie end to end about a dozen times, and that scene always gets me."
YES! That moment when she rips offer her helmet and shouts "I AM NO MAN!", and plunges her sword into the Witch King, is cooler, and more moving, and - dare I say it - more empowering, than all of the SJW warrior-princess movies made over the last 20 years, combined.

530 Perhaps the unhinged Hillary weve been witnessing out in public lately, is the Hillary that is making a case of insanity for when the light exposes her darkness and she must finally face the music. Tick Tock, lock her up.

That bizarre rant the other day about "dark, flashing videos" that we shouldn't believe was so out of left field. I wonder if it means there are some truly horrifying videos coming up, maybe from Weiner's laptop.

She does it for love. She does it the defense of her father figure. She's facing impossible odds. She's terrified. And she gets hurt really badly doing it, so she retains her humanity.

Eowyn is a great character.

Honestly - I just followed the script. There wasn't even anyone there ... all just CGI.

539 California. The only state that wants wind power.

And then they shut if off when the wind blows.

LOLGFY.

...

I can't imagine how many data centers there are in CA.

They probably have special agreements to not have the power shut off for them, and they have very extensive backup systems, but still.

I can't imagine new mission critical stuff going into CA anytime soon.

540 The Eastman School of Music has reversed itself and cancelled the Philharmonia's scheduled China tour.

China refused to grant visas to three South Korean members and the school originally said the tour would go forward without them.

Apparently, objections from alumni and students convinced them to change their minds.

They never should have agreed to China's terms, but I guess it's good that they finally did the right thing.
