“The greatest pleasure I know is to do a good action by stealth and have it found out by accident.” ― Charles Lamb
The lipsync'ed dialogue always gets me.
It's excellent. It slays me. That right there is fidelity to the writer. What a great idea of taking the actual spoken words of the author after some alcohol and act them out. It's perfect. And it's a ripping tale too. I didn't know any of that.
Know what else I didn't know until one minute ago? The Cranberries song "Zombie" I have that album since when it came out, sang along with it a lot, and the whole time, all the way through I thought the words were "Tommy" for a WWI British soldier. She sings, "Since 1916" and WWI was 1913, I think, so that would make Tommy apposite. I don't like the word Zombie. Although, when it's signed the "Z" proves the signer on point. And there are 3 of them in a row. It's something that will stick out and make sense for all non-signers.Also, I'm trying to change my attitude about zombies. I bought the Walking Dead pop-up book. It's too expensive so I must complain about that, and I still don't care for the content, but I must see it firsthand and study it. I must have it for text book. It does this incredible thing where all the zombies are pulling at the flesh of their victim. Their bodies curl away, their arms seem to stretch and the gruesome body is exposed like an upside down boiled crab on a plate being torn open. And that works by pulling a tab. I want to study it to see why, after all that, didn't they have opening the book be the force that pulls and pushes the tab. Instead of the reader doing that with an extra tab. It is a mechanism placed onto the book. It could be built into the book. I think. I need to study the book. So each vignette amounts to $10.00 each, very expensive for a dead dumb book but reasonable as study material. See how I keep fooling myself? That type twisted logic allows me to get away with nearly anything.
I loved it!
Fuckin' A...bite me Andrew Jackson!
Not to take away from Tubman, but AJ was more a man than 99.99% of our current leadership. Maybe that's why they picked him, shames them, it does.
I enjoyed that. As for the twenty I'm more concerned with how much I can buy with it. They could put Donald Duck on it. That might bring back the word "ducat" which started in Europe as a gold or silver coin. A twenty could be called a duckit or duck.
I thought the Tubman actress was Sweet Brown for a second there...
