V for Vendetta

Who can resist this?

"Even while the movie is set in a post-apocalyptic day after tomorrow -- America, we're told, has fallen into chaos after the war it started enveloped the world -- its concerns are of the moment. Specifically: What rights might a terrified populace give up in the name of promised safety, and how might a government wield that fear to its advantage? Some will praise or condemn the movie's message as an attack on Bush-ism run amok (Alan Moore was responding to Margaret Thatcher, actually), but that's too easy. The real villain is a cowed and lazy citizenry. Meaning all of us."

Yeah I love it that the movie makers and many reviewers are weakly trying to deny this is an attack on GWB. And "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" wasn't about a drug trip.

From a Beatles fan site
"What was the inspiration for "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds?"
"Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds", recorded in February 1967, was inspired by a drawing the then three-year-old Julian Lennon brought home from school, which he said was a picture of his friend Lucy, in the sky, with diamonds."

We believe that don't we???[:D][:D][:o)]

I totally do believe it. OTOH, John was probably loaded most days in 1967. Lucky devil...
