Twenty-first Century Fox

On Sunday, October 6, 1889, the Moulin Rouge music hall opened in Paris, an event that to some extent foreshadowed the opening of Fox Studios Australia in Sydney on November 7, 1999.  The Fox ceremonies included, notably, Kylie Minogue singing “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend.”

  1. It takes a somewhat weird mind to segue from Moulin Rouge into theoretical math/geometry.  I like that.

  2. As Hepburn said to Tracy in “Desk Set,” or as Google might say to Ask Jeeves, “I associate many things with many things.”
