Ingmar Bergman passed away today.
One of my favorite scenes from The Seventh Seal is when the knight meets Death for the first time.

Who are you, asks the knight to the man in the black robes. I am Death, he answers. The knight then challenges him to a game of chess to stall death. And no matter how well he plays, the result is a foregone conclusion.

Farewell, celluloid knight.
More on The Seventh Seal in the next post.

You Are 50% Feminine, 50% Masculine

You are in touch with both your feminine and masculine sides.
You're sensitive at the right times, but you don't let your emotions overwhelm you.
You're not a eunuch, just the best of both genders.

Hmmm....a PG-13 for the blog and a 50-50 for the author.

In case anyone is wondering why a site that features books, films and the odd play should have a "Parents strongly cautioned" tag, it is because of the use of words
bomb (4 times)
death (2 times) and
murder (once).
