I hear "The Chronicles of Narnia" is supposed to be fascinating and thought provoking...I don't think it got extremely high reviews, but so many people have mentioned it that I think I will go see it... I am told that many of the surface ideas could be connected to other deeper ideas, for example- ideas  connected  with  religious beliefs...Sounds like it might be interesting........KJF'66.

Kev, when you go, see if you notice those Festivus Poles being used as weapons in the Witch's army. I thought I saw several. I wouldn't want to see Tony71 get cheated out of any of the royalties due his way. (Just looking out for your interests, Tony)

C.S. Lewis' "The Chronicles of Narnia" is heavy in Christian mythology with the lion -- Atlan -- used to represent Jesus.

 

The director was hoping to create a Christian based franchise to compete with the Harry Potter films.

 

As to the use of the Festivus Poles, I'm still following up a lead regarding Iraq's purchase of aluminum tubes a few years back. The administration had indicated the tubing was for use in WMDs but now it seems clear that they were just getting ready to celebrate Festivus. Word is that Hussein canceled the celebration because he wasn't too happy with the concept of "Airing of Grievances".

 

When I get done with that, I'll turn my attention to suing the gang at Disney.

Tony,

 

My neighborhood is inundated with discarded Festivus Poles at the curb.

I guess, like our dads would do in Woodside, we'll just drag them into a pile and burn them.

Next year we plan to cut our own pole.  I've got my eyes on the corner stop sign.

Sad to see the official end of the season though.

Happy New Year!

Frank, I've got a Festivus Pole you can have. The local Highway guys knocked over the Stop sign on the corner during the last snsnsnsn storm (there it goes again!) and it's just laying there. It still looks like it's got good color, maybe you could plant it and it'd survive till next year for you?

Bob,

 

I'd prefer the warm family experience of cutting down our own. Perhaps that one could be donated, to a local nursing home for example.

Thanks just the same.

 

Happy New Year!

I got the original King Kong on DVD for Christmas and still marvel at it. The best part of the DVD set is the inclusion of the an RKO series on the making of the original film. They at one point recreate a scene that was edited out of the original movie using all of the original animation and rear screen techniques. Even my 20-year old step daughter (recovering from her ACL surgery) enjoyed it.

Was watching something on the tube last night and found an interesting tidbit. It was about the original Wizard of Oz. It seems Judy Garland was the second choice for Dorothy, Shirley Temple was the first. The original Tin Man couldn't play the role, as he was alergic to the make up. Finally, production came to a halt when half the Munchkins got arrested for being drunk and disorderly in Hollywood! Guess the were celebrating the Witch's death a little too hard!

I think it was Buddy Ebsen who was allergic to the tin man makeup.
