"And I come back to you now, at the turn of the tide"

Wednesday, May 25, 2005


Anyone else find it odd that the first action by the federal government against a Torrent site was instigated mainly by a movie that made more money than God last weekend, and will probably become one of the top 5-10 box office hits of all time?

And while we're on the subject of Revenge of the Sith, I have a little theory to share. I think that the awful exchange between Padme and Anakin in their penthouse apartment was based, loosely, on the central ballad from Rogers & Hammerstein's Cinderella. Consider:
Do I love you because you're beautiful?
Or are you beautiful because I love you?
So for George Lucas, it wasn't mere clunkiness. It was an ode to one of the most stale unimaginative prolific theatrical songwriting teams in American history! Albeit a clunky one.
