My favourite cartoon is the one where Foghorn Leghorn (rooster) is trying to teach the chickenhawk how to catch a live "chicken" (the farm dog) or he's trying to convince the skinny hen that the dog would make a fine husband!
"I say.... I say... I say there......Miss Prissy. Is any of this getting through into that head of yours under that pretty little bonnet?"

Guest of Japan: Finding Forrester won my heart with an ultra-realistic shot of the kid protoge's book collection. A shot of many paperbacks, all well-thumbed except for a practically untouched copy of Finnegan's Wake!

I was told by a professor that one does not actually read "Finnegan's Wake"--one experiences it.

And it was an experience I avoided all through my BA and my MA in Literature.

Samuel Jackson teacher movie: 187 (he goes psycho on a bunch of inner city thugs-not one of his better movies).

Teacher movie example of how NOT to teach: The Paper Chase

Another almost teacher movie: Waterlands (Jeremy Irons trying to interest his bored history class tells them a real story)

Summer School: Better than you think, but it still stinks.

I also liked the bookshelf shot in Finding Forrester. You can't blame the kid for not putting a whole lot of effort into Finnegan's Wake. I expect to be avoiding that book for at least another decade.

Lucy Snow: Did you ever get around to reading it? The closest I got was trying to read a paragraph in a bookstore just after university. I felt real dumb.

Nope. And I avoided Thomas Pynchon's "Gravity's Rainbow" too. I concentrated on historical lit, because I found that Chaucer made a lot more sense to me than Joyce. Still does.

My husband who has read "Finngan's Wake," thinks I'm a barbarian.

Your husband's read Finnegan's Wake? Wow! Can I stare at him with a mixture of awe, horror, respect and bewilderment sometime?

Rob.
