Scotland, PA

in General Discussion edited January 2014
Pull out the old '75 Camaro, light up the wacky weed and crank up the Rock Block of Bad Company...this movie rocks!

"Scotland, PA" puts Shakespeare's Macbeth in 1975 in a small rural town in Pennsylvania. Very funny and well acted. Lots of unknowns in the cast. But Christopher Walken and Andy Dick are in it. See it if it comes around your way. Way out cool, dude... <img src="graemlins/smokin.gif" border="0" alt="[Chilling]" />

    I must point oot that there is a widely held belief amangst those who tread the UBBoards that merely mentioning the the name o' "The Scottish (PA) Play" is tae tempt fate in a maist wild and reckless manner. Ill omens! Portents o' Doom! Fell Fortune! And maybe a wee bit bad luck just tae rub salt in the wound!

    Superstition? Alas no. Inexplicable things must surely follow. Even noo the cackling crones o' cyber catastrophe are mixing the ingredients o' ignomony and it is almost certain that a member o' AI, a relative o' a member o' AI or a friend o' a relative o' a member will - at some time during this year - suffer some kind o' mishap.

    "Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow Creeps in this petty pace from day to day To the last syllable of recorded time; And all our yesterdays have lighted fools The way to dusty death. Out, out brief candle! Life?s but a walking shadow, a poor player, That struts and frets his hour upon the stage And then is heard no more. It is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing."

    --- Act 5, Scene 5

    No' only that when I was at school aboot xx(ahem) years ago, aged 14 or so, oor Gym Mistress was a Miss McBeth. A muscular blondy heidit lady in her twenties I suppose. She used tae bring us bad luck every Wednesday afternoon in the form o' The Tawse (heavy leather punishment belt, popular in Scottish schools at that time). Whack, Whack. QED.
