True, true. You have recognized me for what I am. I shall go back, out of the company of Decent Folk, and once again consort with my companions of the cloaca. Alas! I did try to improve my lot, but it was not to be! Not for me fine clothes and a knighthood! I shall henceforth experience naught be degradation, corruption, and decadence. I shall tread the downward path to perdition, and it shall be the fault of Amos if my soul is lost to the joys of Eternal Salvation.

Well, and you reform, sirrah, you shall be wholly forgiven, and I'll shrive you, too. Do not be so dark, I pray--there is some hope for you in heaven even now.

So what is this good for, Amos? Making tiny little bursts of commercials that come in the regular television programming? Are they trying to defeat my use of a DVR to avoid watching commercials?

A serious question: Which would you say is the finest film adaptation ever done of the story "Cyrano De Bergerac"?

I know Jose Ferrer's acting of the part in 1950 is thought very well of, but other than that the movie seems quite dated. Then there's the one from 1990 with Gerard Depardieu...seems to be very good.

Opinions?

I think it's a marvelous story.

Jose! I haven't seen Gerard's version, but I have seen Jose's a couple of times. I also read the play, and his delivery is masterful. There is another one, Steve Martin's version, I think I saw that (Roxanne) years ago.

I vote for Steve Martin, who resurrected the legend in Roxanne. A most modern interpretation. And very, very funny.

Sorry, Amos, I do not feel that Desmond Tutu's rendition of Cyrano was anything but mediocre! I am surprised you would even bring it up, frankly. Tutu should stick to what he can do well and leave the acting of the classics to professional actors, in my opinion.

As for Steve Martin in "Roxanne", that movie was great, but I only wish to focus on films that tell the original story in the original time frame...not modernized adaptations.

Well, aren't you just the widdle puwrist!!?

I submit that Tutu's stand against the encroachments of China on the Dalai Lama's land trumps every production of Cyrano de Bergerac ever written. As does Steve Martin, for that matter.

Did you ever see him (Martin, not Tutu) in "All of Me?" He out-Chaplins Chaplin in demonstrating the movements of a woman soul running a borrowed male body in a situation where she is forced to pretend to be a man. It is side-splittingly funny and he does it flawlessly.

Are you aware that William Shatner has never played Cyrano de Bergerac? My gosh, what the world has missed! I wonder if it's too late to get him to take on that role?

Yes, you're right. He should have done it back in the late 60s or early 70s. (sigh) A great opportunity has passed us all by.

"Wolfy" and "Billy" were a well-known couple of rakes on the streets of Vienna. They'd walk around drinking beer, eating madelines and sachertorte, molesting the barmaids, drinking beer, eating schnitzel, molesting small animals, binking dreer....

You have unwittingly hit on a great truth there, Rapaire. My studies into the Akashic Records have convinced me beyond any shadow of a doubt that William Shatner WAS W.A. Mozart in a previous life. Furthermore, he was also William Shakespeare, and that's why he's so good at Shakespearian style acting. The Man simply cannot avoid greatness, no matter where or when he chooses to walk among us. What he will accomplish in his next life, I can only wonder. With luck, I will be there to see it.

Well, yes and no. LH, archives show that Billy met Wolfy when Billy was tossed into Hohenasperg prison as Wolfy's cellmate. Wolfy being quite domineering, even bullying, you can imagine how the relationship developed. They were released in a general amnesty following the accession of Prinz Frederich Hermann to the Mayorality of Heidelberg; Wolfy insisted that they then move to Vienna. Billy wanted to go to Toronto, but Wolfy's arguments (and his shank) left little room for argument. They were picked up numerous times by the Sündegruppe of the Wiener Polizei, paid fines up to three gold trunckenlieder, and were finally banished to Italy, "wo solche Sachen angenommen werden" (they were seperated with a crowbar and put on different coaches, one going to Venice and the other, for some reason, to Toronto).

You can find these records easily enough if you will only look for them in the right places.

Yes, in the right places. Like the Österreichisches Staatsarchiv, for example. You might even find pictures of Wolfy and Billy, like this one.   Billy is in the center foreground with his back to us, as it often was to Wolfy, who is seated at the head of the table, fourth from the left.

The picture, by the way, is of a certain Biergarten in Vienna called, for some reason, "Der Gai Vacquero".

You have to give Rapaire high marks for his outstanding powers of association. He can make any two things in the universe appear intimately connected, just by overlooking factual distinctions in time, place, or event. It's a powerful ability, one which should take him far -- all the way to the RNC!!

I don't have a nightmare closet, no. I do have a monkey watching over the room...but he's not an evil one like in Family Guy. He's quite friendly.

(I'm not referring to Chongo when I say "monkey". I'm referring to Gideon. He's a small baboon.)

I used to read H.P. Lovecraft and I found his writing hysterically funny! ;-) It's really quite odd that a man would write what he thought were tales of chilling horror and come up with stuff that amusing and ridiculous. The giant penguins that kept uttering the dread sound "Tek-e-li-li" were perhaps the funniest horror he ever came up with! Astounding. I really have to wonder if he was in posession of all his faculties. His ghost would probably be quite annoyed if he could see me now, chuckling over his attempts to build forboding, wiping away tears of laughter as he finally reaches the penultimate scene where the protagonist "ran screaming from the room" (where he was do doubt confronted by some sort of inchoate, shapeless, formless, indescribable something that Lovecraft can find no apparent way of describing...or perhaps by a giant pink Easter bunny that hopped in a strangely unbalanced and eldritch fashion past antediluvian structures of impossible (?) geometry wrought out of black, crennelated basaltic stone so ancient that it must have predated even the foundations of this very world!!!!!!!!!!!!

His detractors ARE giant penguins. Giant penguins are completed and irrevocably opposed to Obama and everything he stand for, with, in, or by. They are also totally opposed to Hillary Clinton, John McCain, head lice, Ron Paul, Dick Cheney, crabs (both kinds), returning to the gold standard, and the WTCU. The giant penguins are, in fact, not in favor of anything except being in opposition.
