Metaphysics Finals

Well, if I have time to draft them, this week should take us to the end of the current campaign, as we bid farewell to metaphysics for the time being and move on to our next topic. I watched Annie Hall with my wife this weekend, which includes the line:

I was thrown out of N.Y.U. my freshman year for cheating on my metaphysics final, you know. I looked within the soul of the boy sitting next to me.

It hadn't occured to me just how much the post-modern techniques so prevalent in modern comedies since the success of The Simpsons owe a debt to Annie  Hall, which being made in 1977 was a a real pioneer. The first episode of The Simpsons was twelve years later.

Anyway, against the backdrop of these final posts we will also be concluding our minigame to weigh EA's soul - and currently, EA's corporate soul is being weighed as a slight force for good! Just three days left to determine its fate!

Have fun!

Annie Hall: It's so clean out here.
Alvy Singer: That's because they don't throw their garbage away, they turn it into television shows.

Alvy: I believe photography introduces an entirely new set of aesthetic criteria.
In subtitles: I wonder what she looks like naked?

Alvy Singer: I was thrown out of NYU in my freshman year for cheating on my metaphysics final, you know. I looked within the soul of the boy sitting next to me.
When I was thrown out, my mother, who was an emotionally high-strung woman, locked herself in the bathroom and took an overdose of Mah-Jongg tiles.
I was depressed then. I was in analysis. I was suicidal as a matter of fact and would have killed myself, but I was in analysis with a strict Freudian, if you kill yourself, they make you pay for the sessions you miss.

Biederman has said that novelty can continue to stimulate the neuropyhsiological pleasure of learning only until one experiences what he calls 'the click of comprehension'. 22 viewings - word perfect quotes. Either thats a terrifically multi-layered, complicated film, or I should be watching something more on the level of Tellytubbies :D

Advanced stuff that Tellytubbies - the ontological implications alone are staggering! :D
