Things I want to see, hear, or read

August 9th, 2004 (03:27 pm)
Tags:

  • A television miniseries of Sondheim's Sweeney Todd starring Anthony Stewart Head and Lucy Lawless.

  • A K.D. Lang/Melissa Etheridge cover of "Total Eclipse of the Heart."

  • A good book about the passage of the Oxford Union's infamous 1933 resolution "that this House will under no circumstances fight for its King and Country." (If anybody knows of one, post a comment.)

  • A production of Harlan Ellison's screenplay for I, Robot.

Other suggestions welcome.

Fascinating.

1) ::blink:: ::blink:: ::blink:: I'll let you know when my brain stops seizing up on this one. I can't decide if I agree or not.

2) Cool!

3) I must admit total ignorance. Which is always embarrassing for me.

4) Hell, yeah!

Short version: in 1933, the Oxford Union debated whether it would fight for King and country. They decided not.

spooky

I've been saying for two years that I'd like to see a good, subtle, atmospheric film adaptation of "Fall of the House of Usher." Sans Vincent Price, please.

A production of Harlan Ellison's screenplay for I, Robot.</cite>

:weeps:: The existence of Harlan's treatment just makes the film they produced that much more a travesty.
