  1. Well Isolde's Tower (that wonderful Temple Bar pub that you wouldn't be seen dead in… except when drunk at three in the morning when nowhere else is open) always gets referred to as "Izz-oll-dees". But then that may have something to do with the whole drunk, three o'clock in the morning thing.

  2. I always think of it like this: "I's old." But then, I'm usually just thinking about me at the time. I've noticed that people who've read Memoirs of a Geisha hated the movie, but people who haven't, loved it. I read it, so I'm in no hurry to see it, although I have heard it's beautiful. But I already own Hero, Crouching Tiger, et al. I'm kind of not in the mood for another one that looks the same… Especially if it doesn't do justice to an incredible story. xo

  3. I think I'd pronounce it most like Kelly's, but is old, instead of I.

    The whole idea of the film scares me Alan.

    Gerry, I've never read the book. But I say a previous version of the film, and know the story.

  4. I was thinking about it and remembering Isolde's Tower and when it opened (sober) people called it Iss-oll-deh's Tower. So that's mebbe where my pronuncification came from.
    Love the "all credit to…" thang. Excellent!

  5. Heya, what's the thingy I need to download so's I can get sound? Gmail me…

    Also did you have to pay any import duties on stuff gotten off Playusa? And how long does delivery take? It's a VM thing.

  6. I cast my vote for the 'I sold' pronunciation. As much as I think Ziya Zhang is beautiful I just couldn't bring myself to watch this as it just didn't sound interesting. I'm sure it is beautiful, the trailers themselves are, but I prefer a bit of story in there with the beauty.

  7. Have done some research (heh) and this is a question that is on many bloggers uh, blogs at the mo. 'Parently there are different pronunciations partly because of the fact that the story has been retold in various languages and notably in Wagner's opera. However, it seems that the 'e' at the end is pronounced (as 'uh') more often than not.
    But the film is going for the other one. So that's gonna bug me. A lot.

  8. Apparently, my server is saving me from a fate worse than death, because it tells me the link you gave me is "Not Found." So, I'll take your word for it. Thank God I'm not attracted to James Franco's chest anyway. Or any other part of him. Honest. I was just trying to be funny, pathetically.

  9. HA HA HA!!!

    Kelly should start her own dictionary. Really. This has actually distracted me from reading the Veronica Mars recaps on TWoP. It takes a lot to do that.

    I couldn't get the pic either. Fence, word picture. NOW!

  10. Well, one of the ones where he's tied to a bed. ICK. With a side order of yuck.

    Kelly, sorry to disappoint but have no idea what you're typing about. Be more specific! Also, have only seen about half an hour of So I Married… The last half hour as I recall. So I doubt I was channelling MM at any point. Sorry.

  11. He's no Logan Echolls, that's for sure.

    Ain't it funny how EVERYTHING can be related back to Veronica Mars? And ain't it funny how it never EVER gets even a little old?

    I think that all male actors should be notified three months in advance of any upcoming semi-nude scenes, so they can decide which way they want to go – unbuffed, buffed to an extent that's appropriate for the character or totally Mr. Universe bleccccch.
