There's The Godfather! *points*

And oooh, the Matrix. He just told me he's on the Matrix special edition discs - disc 8, it said when I looked it up. I like the Matrix, but I've never gotten that set. Have you seen it? Is it worth seeing?

Wow, disc 8? That must be a huge special edition. No, I haven't seen it. But yeah... I'd love to hear what Daniel Dennett has to say about the Matrix.

I can't imagine what takes 8 discs, but it must be cool. I asked him kind of idly if he'd seen the movies, and he wrote back, "Have I seen the Matrix movies? I'm IN the boxed set of Matrix DVDs.There's an extra DVD that has a long documentary of sorts about the
ideas behind the Matrix. It turns out, in fact, that some of my work was
a major source of the ideas in the films. I've got to say that I liked
the first movie and found the others boring and pretentious. But that's just me."

As for me, I liked some things in the last two and not others. I LOVED the Architect, for example. Didn't like the heavy-handed Judeo-Christian stuff in the last one. But that's me. ;)

I think I'm going to have to investigate this Matrix special edition further.

Awesome! Yay for quantum theory, and polyamory ;)

Wow -- I could spend a whole day with this set of images.

At that, I wonder what "walking the line" is about. I'd thought it meant living totally freely, "to the fullest", sort of on the line between life and death. Apparently it means quite the opposite though!: Yes, these expressions both mean to "behave," or take care not to deviate from the "straight and narrow."

... Listening to the Johnny Cash song, I have some other ideas, but I'll leave it to you if you wish to respond.

Wow, I didn't realize that either.

I am listening to the song now, and I can see how he might be right (about assuring June Carter that he is going to behave). I added that interest shortly after seeing the movie "Walk The Line" and the way June uses it to him in the movie is definitely in the sense of "you're walking the line, ie flirting with danger or disaster". Then they show him writing and singing the song just after that. So maybe it's after all a double meaning.

Not sure if I want to remove it... I'll have to think about that.
