King Arthur

So, in my Honors English IV class, we're reading some of King Arthur. You know, I've never even given the actual King Arthur stories a second thought - I never really knew any of the story. I actually find them to be pretty interesting and want to read the entire work of Morte d' Arthur.

It's actually kind of funny as I am reading through these "tales" and picturing some of the knights in the story as the knights from Holy Grail. I never knew that they were "actual characters" per say.

I wish so badly that we could watch Holy Grail in class now, but since my english teacher is an old bat, I guess that will never happen....

the_thina: haha. but wasent disneys "the sword in the stone" about king arthur when he was a kid? but I never really knew the orginal stories eiter, but I did know they exist.
but just because your teacher is old dont mean he/she wont like python. after all, the young teenagares that fell in love with them 40 years ago is at least 50-60 years old now. ^^

No, trust me - it's not the fact that she's old, its just her personality. I've never in my life disliked a teacher so much.... ohh dear!

oh I see now what you mean. sorry to hear that dear.

Jatta: Oh yes, the Holy Grail truly gives a new meaning to the story of King Arthur :) I haven't read the tales since I was kid.. must do some rereading, I think :)

Lady April: Oh I just LOVE the history and story of King Arthur!!!
WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN LADY??????? I miss you *sniff sniff*

I've been around...watched Python the other day for the first time in a while, I miss everyone!

thewastelandr: Hahaha! In my undergrad, my classical history prof took every opportunity to play The Holy Grail. I think in the 4 years I had him for classes, we watched the whole film at least 3 times in different classes.

haha thats so cool. ^^ my english-teacher in school loved the blues brothers, and we got to see it in class without subtitels (I live in sweden and that is a part of english-classes here, to get to train on listening to the language in a different way) all the other kids in my class were sighing and moaning through the whole film, but I loved it. ^^
and in psychollogy-class in high school we watched one flew over the kookoos nest and clockwork orange. <3

Oooh the Blues Brothers are great! I haven't seen One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest - is it good? I love Clockwork Orange! My favorite movie of all time!

the_thina at 10:48 pm December 18

yes, one flew over... is good. its jack nicholson being stuck in a madhouse even if there is nothing realy wrong with him. and how he is dealing with the others in there, causing quite the little riots. its one of those movies that makes you THINK you know.
yes, clockwork orange and rocky horror are my 2 favourite movies ever. I even have the number 655321 tattoed on my body. ^^

Haha that is so cool!!! I actually haven't seen Rocky Horror yet, but definitely am planning on it. Ok I'll check out One Flew Over too... sounds really good! Thanks for the recommendations!

You must see One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, I just watched it in Psychology too, and it was a really good film. I'm considering reading the book now.

the_thina at 1:07 pm December 19

thewastelandr at 9:13 am December 20

Haha yay! Can't wait now! It's always good to have some movies to watch around the holidays, since I usually end up eating so much I can't move for hours...
