Re: your post about
women, feminism, etc.
I very much agree with you on
that one. Especially about not knowing what we want! And
the myth of Mr. Right. (did I mention I stopped watching
Ally--and not just because the writing has been going
downhill--and that my new found passion--in addition to
Buffy--is Six Feet Under; I guess as we get "older" we
crave realism, at least as shown on TV).
If I can add
something (not especially profound): when in real life,
we're lucky enough to meet someone who is as close as we
will ever get from that myth, someone who "gets us" but
we still dare to have second-thoughts... How is that
possible? That's probably where the "grow up" part comes
to play! Or maybe it's just me (or

lawyer - May 09,
2002, 3:31 PM
I apologize if I came
out a little too strong about author X. He is a very
controversial figure in France (but many people do like
and respect him; don't think I am the " French
Authority" around here <smile>). He tends to
"change his shirt" (as we say in French)--politically
and intellectually I mean-- depending on who is running
the country, what is the opinion or philosophical idea
in vogue, etc. In other words, he's pretty flacky. One
of those people that get all hyped up by the media (he's
a constant guest of any economic/philosophical/political
debate on TV, just because he fought with the Che). Of
course, I should have been more careful with my choice
of words. I was in a hurry and forgot the usual "sarcasm
warning." FP, I despise author X for who he is (I
"confess" passionate and irrational opinions at times
<smile>), not you (never you) for reading/citing
his books. I hope this "mea-culpa" built back
trust between us. And we all know how much trust
is important. <smile> In any event thank you to VR
for her support.
On a lighter note, SL it is
then. Being myself quite obsessed with SNL (do I need to
go on about my pop culture obsessions again?
), I like
the shorter version much better. Thank you FP for making
it official. Of course, you can also call me "Super,"
but I may get a big head again and start annoying
everyone. Again. <smile>

VretilRaduriel - May 09, 2002, 3:13
And the end result,
regardless, is irritation and often frustration. As for
another guess, perhaps SL dislikes said author for
reasons other than the work you cite and cannot overcome
her dislike due to those reasons. I'm fairly well read,
and I have a fairly open mind, but I know of a few
people I loathe and cannot stand to read. Case in point:
There is man in the world of literary criticism by the
name of Grebanier. I've read two of his works and he
could write the next holy grail of the literary world
and I wouldn't read it. Why? Because, based on his
previous writing, I find him to be an umitigated ass and
a sloppy scholar who thinks far too highly of his own
opinions entirely without merit. I hold for this man an
active dislike bordering on rabidity. And I know it. And
I know that people change and he too may have changed
since the last work I read by him, but I simply cannot
bring myself to read his work without risking apoplexy.
So I don't. And I make nasty comments. So, don't judge
too quick or think cultural or intellectual snobbery
just yet, FP.
Last note: In interests of full
disclosure, I will say that my dislike of Grebanier
springs, in part, from our polarised opinions about the
capabilities of the male and female genders. <smile,
with pointy canines showing>
While taking a break from the constraints
of my life I read posts....
VretilRaduriel - May 09, 2002, 3:02
And feel compelled to
respond. To some -- other responses will come later when
I have more time. First though I'll spring to SL's
defense (in a typically feminine way by recounting,
perhaps?, a parallel I see in my own views). While I
would not presume to give you SL's reasons for dislike
of that author -- and I hope she'll reveal them -- I
will venture a few guesses. Perhaps she longs for good,
clean prose -- though FP, your presentation may have
altered the author's. It's all too common for the
intelligesia of our times to offer pronouncements
designed to sound authoritative. I say "designed"
deliberately, precisely because no "common" reader would
ever want to submit to the torture of demystifying
sentences full of academic double speak that signify
very little or at most something that could have been
said much more clearly. It reminds me of hazing and
sophomore frat boys who offer as excuse "Well, I had to
go through it, so why shouldn't you?" If the point is to
communicate and communicate well -- then why hide the
ideas in prose designed only to be understood by a few?
It's either a serious misapprehension of the audience or
cultural snobbery & either way the writer defeats
the point of communicating knowledge.
prunehilda - May 09, 2002, 3:00
I was going to post a
big raspberry to you but now you've got me thinking
Saturday Night Live. How do you do that? SL it is then (
if she agrees to it).
With so many books how do
you find the one you want? Do you catalogue them? I ask
because I've only got about 600-700 and it seems I can
never find the one I looking for.

Now lets talk about the direction the
sonnets have taken.
prunehilda - May 09, 2002, 1:22
I keep starting this
message and it never comes out right. The sonnets (and
maybe I'm dead wrong) seem to be in answer to the whole
male vs female thing and that unanswerable question
"What do women really want?" and of course "How can
Hollywood deliver?" We say we want a nice, sensitive guy
but we lust after the guy with the motorcycle. Forensic,
we don't know what we want. I don't know how to make it
If you put Buffy Summers, Ally
MacBeal, and Carrie Bradshaw in the same room with the
perfect man (whatever that means) and told them to scrap
it out to get him, they would end up discussing their
old boyfriends. Those three waifs would agonize over
Billy, who is dead, Angel, who is sort of dead, and Mr.
Big who is the consummate bachelor. All unavailable men!
The perfect guy, now leaning against the wall near the
door would be left shaking his head in disbelief and
waiting for a quick release.

the vilification of Spike. Wasn't it just a week ago

In WHY I POST IN
SHAKESPEAREAN SONNETS . . . there's a
short line (not a
debatable single syllable).
Before I repost
that sequence in a single thread, that line needs

Well well well . . . it seems there's a

Perhaps some Tea

figure out how to "shoehorn" in there .

Last night and today,
I've been trapped in threads. Whenver I try to exit a
thread, to check out the topic list I receive that
bloody stupid message. "Somebody blew it zeppo. Return
to Sunnydale." All I can say is Grr arrgh! And Halfrek
get your ass down here!
I hope this wonky bronze
won't interfere with my access to your sonnet(s) and Tea
Time today FP.
I'm almost caught up on all of
the Tea Time threads and its affiliates. Just have to
work on the "C" Channel.
SNL, prunehilda, and JNW
(or is it now VR?) thanks for keeping the torch alight.
I would never have uncovered the information that you
all have. I don't feel worthy to be grouped in the same
class as my "C" conspirators. <frown> I hope to
change that soon.
Allright, time for me to grab
my battle axe and fight my way back to the topic list.
