Kill. Sacrifice. Virgin. Die. Eat baby. Troll. Salon talk (6 August 2009)

Obama wants to kill your grandma. Sacrificial virgins of the Mississippi. Prada model in wolf's clothing. I don't like his kids. Models, vampires and spoiled brats. Glenn Beck's bashing the the birthers. Prep school casualty. The troll's revenge. Harry and Louise must die. Let the military commissions die.

How could a mother eat her own baby?

All Salon article titles, from August 2nd, 2009, to August 6, 2009 (with the bulk from 5-6th).

This is not sensationalism; it's something's on our mind. If we did a fantasy analysis of it, it'd have us thinking of/wishing for the young and quite old as in for rather a lot of trouble. If we were about to go into a trance state, disengage from reality and engage our dormant troll, we would begin seeing our leader, Obama, and hypnotism/trance states associated together:

Can Obama be deprogrammed?

To see how you too can do fantasy analysis, and see the troll maybe now "stepping" out of Salon-writer/reader' clothing, check out Get with it before we get you!

Full conversation about "Bringing Up Baby" at the NewYorker Movie Facebook Club

I was seventeen or eighteen; I had never heard of Hawks until I read Godard's enthusiastic mention of him in one of the early critical pieces in "Godard on Godard"—he called Hawks "the greatest American artist," and this piqued my curiosity. So, the next time I was in town (I… I was out of town at college for the most part), I went to see the first Hawks film playing in a revival house, which turned out to be "Bringing Up Baby." I certainly laughed a lot (and, at a few bits, uncontrollably), but that's not all there was to it. I had never read Freud, but I had heard of Freud, and when I saw "Bringing Up Baby," its realm of symbolism made instant sense; it was obviou…

"The Zookeeper's Wife" as historical romance

A Polish zoologist and his wife maintain a zoo which is utopia, realized. The people who work there are blissfully satisfied and happy. The caged animals aren't distraught but rather, very satisfied. These animals have been very well attended to, and have developed so healthily for it that they almost seem proud to display what is distinctively excellent about them for viewers to enjoy. But there is a shadow coming--Nazis! The Nazis literally blow apart much of this happy configuration. Many of the animals die. But the zookeeper's wife is a prize any Nazi officer would covet, and the Nazi's chief zoologist is interested in claiming her for his own. So if there can be some pretence that would allow for her and her husband to keep their zoo in piece rather than be destroyed for war supplies, he's willing to concede it.

The zookeeper and his wife want to try and use their zoo to house as many Jews as they can. They approach the stately quarters of Hitler's zoologist …
