Necrothreading much?

... And sometimes it shines.

Finding Victor Davis Hanson, Frank Miller and Bill Whittle discussing actors and the movie industry in the same thread.

Now I could definitely find worse ways to start the day.

(Scroll down the comments for Miller and Whittle)


Oh and, if by any chance Frank Miller was to read this: please Sir, drop the bloody "creative" agency who put up that unserviceable excuse for a blog in Flash—a plague that unfortunately affects just about every movie site these days.

Using Flash to power a blog is like standing at the Hot Gates hoping to stop Xerxes' millions only armed with a feather duster and the complete work of Jean-Paul Sartre, and you are losing all the benefits of the networking effect induced by any decent blogging application1.

I'll build you a blog Frank—Hope you don't mind me calling you Frank, Mr Miller Sir—Just ask.
  1. Case in point: I couldn't link to any entry of interest in your "blog" from this very post. For one thing because I couldn't read any of them entirely: the display is broken—very frustrating, considering how interested I am in what you have to say—But also because there are no darn permanent links to grab in the first place.

... Et parfois il rayonne.

Tomber sur Victor Davis Hanson, Frank Miller et Bill Whittle devisant sur les acteurs et l'industrie cinématographique dans la même conversation.

Je peux imaginer sans effort de pires débuts de journée.

I own, built and run this place. In a previous life I was not French but sadly, I died.

I honestly thought the problem was at my end. Glad they got the squirrels running fast enough to turn the generator!
