And yesterday This Day's Madness did prepare- Tomorrow's Silence- Triumph or Despair- Drink! for you know not whence you came- nor why- Drink! for you know not why you go- nor where - Omar Khayyám, Cassandra in Greek legend you recall was condemned to know the future but to be disbelieved when she foretold it - Hence the agony of foreknowledge combined with the impotence to do anything about it.

You do know ‘La Jette’ right? It’s important, maybe more important than Zardoz. I know, hard to believe. I would (when a young fellow) visit the library where. with a proper request filled out, the Librarian in charge of the audio visual department would thread up the 16mm copy for my personal viewing pleasure (no popcorn and the chair was not terribly comfortable, but it was well worth enduring such horrible conditions). Now it is available on the you tube, which isn’t at all the same, but so go the blessings of the future.

I am once again most intrigued and shall peruse the film anon, expecting who knows what? Which is the best way to come at a film or a book for that matter, or even a person I suppose. Thank you for providing such interesting entertainment President and Founder.
Link (not missing) – the librarian in Terry Pratchett’s Discworld novels is an orangutan – an ape rather than a monkey but near as dammit for a loose connection if I ever saw one.
