The funny thing is that he looks to be only about half as muscular as half the male AVs in SL. And he's got longer arms too. Almost twice as long as the usual infohub suspect. :D

- Which is my way of saying well done.


OOOH MAN! Hamlet! after your previous warning - now it's gotta be considered willful!

i wonder if they let you log into SL from prison?

Hamlet Au

Iffn the law comes, I'll flee to Missourah, where I done hear a man is free to post about fair use parodies and suchlike to his heart's content.

@qarl: /grin ;)


@Hamlet, if they come for you, just yell "it's only digital cosplay!!" and run for the hills.

Ignatius Onomatopoeia

Thank you, Hamlet and especially Munchflower.

/me starts working on his James T. Kirk (3rd season) parody, complete with virtual girdle and turbo-toupee 2000.

I personally like Clockwork less than Hellboy.

Now i understand why you lobby for Facebook!


Oh I would steer clear of the "Show me" state... Unless you are lookin for a meth lab or to get born again!

Hamlet Au

"Now i understand why you lobby for Facebook!"

Not sure I see the connection, I just think *Clockwork* is not one of Kubrick's best movies, it's beautiful but also exploitative and misogynistic, or like Pauline Kael says, a porn movie made by a German professor. I'm more of a *2001* and *Strangeglove* fan.

Pussycat Catnap

Yeah... My reaction to Clockwork Orange is likely much more extreme than Hamlet's

I felt very uncomfortable with that first scene of the attack on the home... Clockwork Orange is one of those movies that goes over the top to make an under the top point: shock art. To some this is art, to others its not.

Of course I was unable to sit any further through the movie. And this isn't about 'weakness to violence' - I grew up in RL life-threatening violence and have a few cousins in the dirt through unnatural means. It was survival, not entertainment.

I can sit through a war movie, but that scene just got me. Probably because I felt like it was being filmed as if the audience was meant to enjoy it, rather than see the horror of it.

After that there was no value left in the movie for me.

Aliasi Stonebender

If you've never seen the movie beyond that point, Pussycat... well, then you've not seen what happens to Alex as a result.

Nothing wrong with simply not enjoying it, of course, or finding it triggery.
