What's That Is?!

For those of you not up to date with Steele's shit, thought I'd slash a brief synopsis of Stizzy's latest activities.

1. bensteeleart.com - check it out.

2. the quick and dirty of steele's athletic adventures of late.

3. those hilarious prisoner of war yarns ol' benny was always stringing us along with.


What a nutball.

There will be time, there will be time to prepare a face to meet the faces that you meet.

Del.icio.us

Hey Stizneele - what's your username for Del.icio.us? I wanted to check your shit but couldn't find you on there. I think I'm on as Morgdog now, or you can search for "Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts Screenplay."

For you Steele:

The cover illustration is of a playing card, the Jack of Hearts, with the words "Jack of Hearts" written across it. The script is "Based on a ballad by Bob Dylan". It is also based on "Hamlet" by William Shakespeare.The screenplay has been summarized by Jim Brown (jbrown@magnus.acs.ohio-state.edu):

"The story opens with a large white stallion being stolen from a corral. Then we see Rosemary, Big Jim's wife, working as a teller in the bank he owns. It turns out Big Jim stole Rosemary, the bank, and most of the rest of the Colorado town from Rosemary's first husband, who, along with their five-year-old son, disappeared maybe twenty years ago. Remember that kid, he'll surface again, as -- you guessed it -- the Jack of Hearts."

Into the bank comes the mysterious stranger (outside stands the stolen horse which, it turns out, belonged to Jim). He talks to Rosemary cryptically and then leaves his calling card, a Jack of Hearts. Jim knows that the guy who stole his horse is in town."

That night at the cabaret, a mysterious woman does a weird card trick on Jim that basically lays out the whole story of usurpation and subsequent revenge metaphorically. All the cards get ripped up except for the Jack of Hearts. So Jack flirts with Lily, while Jim looks on jealously. Rosemary is ambivalent; she hates her husband and hates losing him to the younger woman."

Finally, there's a card game, and in the ensuing fracas, the false father is eliminated (though the agent is not Jack, of course, but Rosemary)."

The story closes with the safecrackers (whom I guess I forgot to mention ... well, there were these safecrackers, see ...) hiding out in a cave when they are met by the Jack of Hearts. He reads in the paper that Rosemary is about to be hanged for her crime, and I think something bad happens to Lily as well. So the only one to come out ahead in the deal is the Jack Of Hearts"

And Steele, don't forget to take the Jack of Hearts quiz.

Shu...who spoke this immortal line?

“We’re human beings, with the blood of a million savage years on our hands. But we can stop it. We can admit that we’re killers, but we won’t kill today.”

Would you listen to that?



Just thought I'd pass on this site to your listening ears. It's pretty interesting actually. You enter the name of a band or a song that you like and it will create a personalized internet radio track for you selecting music with similar themes and sounds as what you liked. You can then help tweak it more by rating the music it selects for you so it can do a better job for you. Pretty cool stuff.

Where have you gone lately?

Hey, who wants to come to Malaysia with Bouvie and I next week? huh? anyone? Anyways, if you have any messages you want me to give him, feel free to tell me. I won't necessarily deliver them, but you're welcome to tell me anyways.

Naked Faces

Been looking at lots of pictures lately in an attempt to improve my own photography and came across some pics by this guy, Oleg dou. It's some really interesting stuff, in my opinion. Ben, you used to be pretty interested in photo manipulation so I think you'll like this, or at least be interested in looking at it. Enjoy!
