    Mark Twain has no control over how he is portrayed. It is because he is a god among men that mere mortals want to portray him, and do so poorly.

    Holbrook is a master of it, though.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    That's the same video I linked to.

    I had the good fortune of seeing him in the mid-1990s in VA. I missed a couple of chances over the past couple of years. It's pretty bloody amazing--he basically memorized a good chunk of Twain's work, and the show is pretty much improvised based on what he wants to do on any particular evening and how the audience responds.

    That is not a video!

    (it's meant to be said a la Morbo's "windmills" quote here: http://youtube.com/watch?v=ZQg8JKo_3ZQ )
    Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

    "We named the dog 'Chewbacca'!"
    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    I saw you'd responded, and thought I'd be banned for crimes against humanity for that one.
