And While We’re At It…

Not too many people even remember the Jeremy Piven vehicle, Cupid, so they don’t know enough to be cranky about the weak do-over being sold to the public right now. But while we’re sending a paltry bit o’ traffic to Liberty Girl, let’s just say that this is just about as spot on as her rants about personal liberty.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go consider Simon Jester’s place in contemporary American society. One nice thing about the Obama administration is that it is encouraging people to revisit some really great literature.

Comments & Trackbacks
The trackback URL for this entry is:

What made Piven so great (and I do really mean “GREAT") in that role is that we never knew whether he was Cupid or crazy. He walked a very fine tightrope. He played the character as though he believed he was Cupid but never went over the top. He displayed a subtlety and deftness that few actor’s could have pulled off. No “reboot” could ever match that brief moment of excellence. I will not be watching.

What’s next? A reboot of “Herman’s Head” starring the guys from “Harold and Kumar”?

I liked Piven’s “Cupid” very much and was disappointed when it tanked after one season.

I would be more agitated about the newest resurrection if I wasn’t 90% catatonic from fear of what they’re about to do to my actual childhood, aka “Star Trek”. “Crap all over it and then use it for bukkake” seems to be the promise, but I’m holding on to a thin shred of hope.

Looks like we now even have an Adam Selene to go with Simon Jester.

If it weren’t for the heaping pile of books I haven’t yet read, but want to, I’d go back and re-read The Moon .... But I’m likely to re-watch V for Vendetta.

Anyways, have you heard about I am Simon Jester?

And sales of Atlas Shrugged are up. Makes me wonder about sales volume for books by John Ross and Matthew Bracken.
