    The Black Mass piano sonata and "Wild Is the Wind".

    Ashkenazy plays Etude Op. 10 No. 1 (Chopin)
    or
    Horowitz plays Etude Op. 8 No. 12 (Scriabin)?

    My guess would be Doggy Chow. I can't imagine that any of those pet foods is as foul as 9 Lives smells.

    trivial pursuit!

    things that make me sad:
    movies that try to be good but just plain suck
    being stuck around boring people
    celery

    I thought you were afraid of celery. Or was that just fear of the FSUer called Celery?

    Boring people are great (okay, not really), so I'll go with movies that try to be good but just plain suck.

    My feelings towards celery are multifaceted.

    The John Berryman link didn't work so I forced to select the dreadful and vapid John Ashbery. (just kidding, I liked it)

    It works now.

    My answer to your entry: Orson Welles. Btw, I'd be interested to read your list of heroines.

    The moody foundling

    Emily or Charlotte? (Anne doesn't count, though ToWH is a decent novel.)

    Btw Sioux, Baaba Maal is not really obscure, but I agree that all celery should be put in the compost bin.

    And I am not very well today. I demand sympathy.

    Smallendian here.

    More recycling

    You tend towards:

    Authoritarian left
    Authoritarian right
    Libertarian left
    Libertarian right

    Libertarian left.

    Suppose you wanted to create a Political Sphere/Cube* quiz involving three axes, of which two were authoritarian/libertarian and right/left. What would the third be?

    activist/quietist
    revolutionist/gradualist
    nationalist/internationalist
    green/non-green
    Smallendian/Bigendian
    or
    _____________________?


    * Okay, that could either look very pretty or very culpably silly.

    Oh, falling_dance. I've already told you I'm not well and you fling this at me. :throws hissy fit:

    I think revolutionist/gradualist

    Do you agree with Pauline Kael's appreciation, if it can be so called, of Citizen Kane?

    This slightly improved situation won't last, I fear, as I really can't say either way without rewatching the film. Some of her points (about the "shallow iconoclasm" of the thinly-veiled Hearst story; about Welles' unconvincing aged gait) have a lot of persuasive force for me as I read them, but like I said, this wobbly Juror No. 12 needs to see it again./lame cop out

    #357 deserves a repeat (while I go eat some humble pie with a flaky crust of my own words).
