Both my great buddies Mickey and Yao-Lin tagged me for the book meme, so I'm gonna make this a Wordy Wednesday.
Here are the rules:
1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people and post a comment to Empress once you post it to your blog so she can come see!
This is kinda hard, because Momma always has lots of books lying around everywhere. We live in a small 'partment, and Momma still found some way to fit 10 book shelves in here. She says it's her job. I think she's a little bit crazy, too, though, quite frankly.
So there are three books on the coffee table next to our laptop right now: Hollywood and War: a Reader; The Souls of Black Folk by W.E.B. Dubois; and Anatomy of Criticism by some Bean named Northrop Frye.
Well, I'm going to choose the Hollywood book, because that is the one that sounds like the most fun.
"Many stereotypes have been fostered by the motion picture. The visual immediacy of film has proved ideal for the simplistic depiction of national characteristics. The visual image of the German solider, for example, is common coin today on movie screens and television sets, but it is often forgotten that Americans were first introduced to aspects of this image by the films of World War I."
Well, I guess that wasn't much fun, either. Sorry, buddies.
I'm going to tag Dr. Tweety & co. and the Furry Kids! I think that's more than five, actually, but I'm not too good at math.
