Manny I was trying to maintain a properly critical attitude throughout (does The Divine Comedy really start like that?!), but your last paragraph is impossible to ignore.

Yes, you have properly activated my bleeding-heart liberal knee-jerk reactions. We can't let any more teddy bears be hanged, there's no more to it.

Marvin Profitability and Disney are two good reasons to vote against the bear but his cuteness and your brilliant analysis wins out.

BTW, did you know Disney once tried to make an animated version of Catcher of the Rye with cartoon dogs? The Salinger estate put a stop to that idea right away.

Whitaker Um, in Italian it rhymes.

Oh, and there is EA's Dante's Inferno--Dante kills evil demons in Hell (although Dante would so have had conniptions if he knew about this):

It's ages since I saw Bambi... I'd quite forgotten that bit!

Renee Deerscartes (or was it Bruce?): "I piss, therefore I am."

Hayes Them there are the opening lines of Paradiso. To be exposed to Dante at such a young age! I'm surprised it was just the teddy bear that was lost!

Hahaha!

CELEBRITY Deathmatch review...which part of 'celebrity' is hard to understand? Pooh is a celebrity by any standard. Profitability and popularity? That's what being a celebrity is all about.


message 8: by Ian (new)

Ian Paganus No no no, you're the celebrity. The auteur. The maestro.

But Ian, I have no money. There are no NGE mouse pads or wallpaper...I CAN'T be a celebrity!


message 10: by Ian (new)

Ian Paganus Mere details. They just mean that you are either a future celebrity or a former celebrity.

Neil Brilliant writing! Thanks.
