“Stop throwing the Constitution in my face… It’s just a goddamned piece of paper!

12 December 2005

This film about Marie Antionette looks interesting, although with Sofia Coppola involved I’m hoping it’ll be better than the oh-so-boring Lost in Translation (found via bookish)

And I think everyone should at least raise an eyebrow at Bush’s alleged remarks about the US Constitution. First off, if the story is false it should be denied at once, and if it is true, well that’s a whole bigger problem isn’t it?

“I don’t give a goddamn,” Bush retorted. “I’m the President and the Commander-in-Chief. Do it my way.” (via TCAL.net

There is a very interesting post on the lack of farming blogs over at realitycheck(dot)ie, and while my immediate family didn’t farm, I do have memories of rounding up my uncle’s sheep[1] and of summer on my grandparents farm down in Tip, and collecting turf with the Donegal cousins. As well as chickens living in cars. Can’t forget those

And don’t you just love Firefox extensions. I accidently closed down the browser without posting, but because I have that session saver thingy my post was safe. Huzzah! Huzzah for extensions.

    See, now this makes utterly no sense out of context. Course there wasn't any context when you said it in the first place, so never mind :)

    Well, at least this comment didn't disappear into the ether.

    Lost in Translation??? Boring??? Have we already had that conversation???

    Ta pratai agam.
    And lost in translation WAS boring. And cold. And the characters were unlikeable. And the humour was based around laughing at Japanese people in their own country for not speaking English and having a different culture to Americans.

    I agree, I thought Lost in Translation was stupid because somehow the Japanese should have accomodated the Americans because…why?

  7. Fence says:

    So we are all agreed. Lost in Translation should have gotten lost before it was ever made.

    Make it so someone.

    I thought Marie looked interesting but had the same initial thoughts as you concerning Sophia. I hope its good.

    Farmers are probably just too busy to blog! :)

    Sally it is called Session Saver, and you can download it here.

    Carl my fingers will remain crossed, but my hopes will remain down ;) and seeing as many farmers here now also have full-time jobs as well as running their farms perhaps they are too busy. Or maybe it is because you can only get dial-up in most of the countryside.

    Lost in translation was funny because they were stupid. They didn't understand the culture. They were idiots. Hah ha ha ha !! look at the idiots! they don't get the culture! ha ha.. Oh. sorry. There. I stopped.
