It's 420 am (not making that up, but *those* days are past...) and I just finished listening to the audio commentary by Rian and his cousin while working on other stuff (a book due Monday, but I probably won't quite make it).

I couldn't get to the theater again for it, but it was helpful to recall the film and to get to learn all the great background info. (I'm now thinking Pygmalion and Galatea for Penelope--the Ovid myth that's the flipside of Daedalus and Icarus anyway. --- I just found this animation googling: http://www.oveis.ca/ looks fun, but I'll have to watch it later.)

my favorite Pygmalion paintings

And I'll assume you know this fantastic Spanish claymation of the Minotauromachy (I show it to my classical mythology class).

I realize as I write this that I'm so tired I can barely form words, so I'll comment more on it later. But if anybody else has listened to and has thoughts on the audio track they can put them here.

Great stuff, Rian, thanks. Very interesting and laid back.

I feel like I just woke up...and ate a huge tub of popcorn.... (I love that feeling too. The sense of rebirth and newly opened eyes -- mixed with shame and regret for having eaten all that popcorn.)
