REFLECTIONS OF AN OBJECTIVIST MUSE
25 June 2000
Watching: Dangerous Liaisons with John Malkovich and Glenn Close.
Listening to: Carlos Alvarez and "Latin Mix" on the Inflight Entertainment System.
After a fairly painless flight, we are BACK!
Unfortunately, one of Callie's bags is not. That sucks.
My last two trips, I've actually checked luggage. This experience drives home why I don't like to do that -- and the delay of waiting for luggage is a pain in the ass anyway.
I just don't have the energy for putting the journal updates online tonight. That's for tomorrow. And I think I want to add an internal search engine to the website. That'll be cool!
Oh, I almost forgot! The Boeing 777 has a cool Inflight Entertainment System that gives each passenger his own monitor for watching movies, playing games, etc. One of the movies showing this time was Dangerous Liaisons, one of my favorites. I'm not so sure Callie was so happy about it! Also, there was a "drama channel" on the system that had on Charlie's Angels, Magnum P.I., and Hill Street Blues. Better than these fine shows, however, was the description of them in the Inflight Entertainment Magazine:
Dangerous Liaisons: Set in pre-revolutionary France, this 1988 drama is a story of sexual power, depravity, cruelty, and deceit. The Marquise de Merteiul [note: we could never remember her name, so my college friends always called her either the Marquise de Glenn Close, or more simply, the Marquise de Ugly] and the Vicomte de Valmont [note: a most excellent man, played by Malkovich!] are monsters of the aristocracy, former lovers who spend their days planning sexual seductions and vengeance.
The Drama Channel: Check out this triple bill of vintage crime drama from these popular shows:
