The Revisiting

Alan Cowell in the The New York Times ,
October 21, 2006— 

"Mr. Pinter played the role of Krapp,
a 69-year-old man revisiting
a tape recording he had made at 39…."

See also a weblog post by a 69-year-old man
revisiting a drawing he had made at 39.

The revisiting:

On Guy Fawkes Day 2011,
a return to Guy Fawkes day 2005—
Contrapuntal Themes in a Shadowland.

The drawing:

A clearer version, from 1981, of the central object below —

For commentary on the original 1981 drawing, see
Diamond-Faceted: Transformations of the Rock.

(A link in that page to "an earlier note from 1981
leads to remarks from exactly thirty years before
the 2011 post, made on another Guy Fawkes Day.)

V Day for Natalie

Filed under: General — Tags: — m759 @ 1:00 PM

This morning's post mentioned the new film "Black Swan," starring Natalie Portman, that opens December 3.

Portman also starred in the 2006 film "V for Vendetta," based very loosely on today's date— November 5, Guy Fawkes Day.

Some background on Alan Moore, the creator of the graphic novel underlying that film—

Also from March 24, 2009—  An image for what Thomas Pynchon, in this morning's post, called "the watchful scavengers of Epiphany."
