My avatar is from "Tombstone," a terrific film with a great performance from Val Kilmer. It's also surprisingly historically accurate, up to a point. You should check it out.

I heard Wyatt Earp was a good movie. I'll have to rent them. I like Val Kilmer.

First of all, there's the name that the family use daily, Such as Peter, Augustus, Alonzo or James, Such as Victor or Jonathan, George or Bill Bailey-- All of them sensible everyday names. There are fancier names if you think they sound sweeter, Some for the gentlemen, some for the dames: Such as Plato, Admetus, Electra, Demeter-- But all of them sensible everyday names. But I tell you, a cat needs a name that's particular, A name that's peculiar, and more dignified, Else how can he keep up his tail perpendicular, Or spread out his whiskers, or cherish his pride? Of names of this kind, I can give you a quorum, Such as Munkustrap, Quaxo, or Coricopat, Such as Bombalurina, or else Jellylorum- Names that never belong to more than one cat. But above and beyond there's still one name left over, And that is the name that you never will guess; The name that no human research can discover-- But THE CAT HIMSELF KNOWS, and will never confess. When you notice a cat in profound meditation, The reason, I tell you, is always the same: His mind is engaged in a rapt contemplation Of the thought, of the thought, of the thought of his name: His ineffable effable Effanineffable Deep and inscrutable singular Name.

Truth be told, Kent, I'm more partial to Bustopher Jones:

In the whole of St. James's the smartest of names is
The name of this Brummell of Cats

This one is a mountain laurel as seen by my dad. He's finally found a creative outlet, 25 years after getting his BFA. With any luck he'll be offering scans up for sale soon.

You should put that back up. Seriously, Richard (D.) James' & Chris Cunnigham's stuff has the sort of bizzarre creepiness I find greatly entertaining. Whoops, let me address my original. Was my two birds/children/overlords. Need to find it again.

That reminded me of the avatar the Shooman uses/used over at AAAC.


Current avatar is Bernard Sumner. Otherwise I have a photo of Hamish Bowles. Also previously had a photo of a young Franz Josef.

"Tombstone" is easily Val's best work, IMO. You can't take your eyes off him. When he's not on screen, you wait for him to return. He's so good it almost undermines the rest of the movie.

"Wyatt Earp" isn't bad, but it takes itself very, very seriously. It's also very long. "Tombstone" is a much better movie, in terms of entertainment value, particularly if you have no specific interest in the period.

Mine is my style icon, Bryan Ferry, the magnificently stylish vocalist and lead man for Roxy Music, one of my favorite groups of all time.

I went to a government sponsored ball for expats last night. Since we had no idea how to hire a limo for the night, we took the metro to the after party. This is a shot of my reflection in the window while the train was moving.

I'm not artistic, but sometimes I pretend to be
