I went to a cafe that advertised breakfast anytime, so I ordered French Toast during the Rennaisance

since seeing v for vendetta the breakfast of choice in my house has become ‘egg in a basket’ it’s not good for you but it sure is tasty!

recipe:

1 egg
1 slice of bread
butter
salt
pepper

Butter both sides of the bread and cut a square hole in the middle of the bread. Heat up a frying pan to medium heat. Put bread into the pan to melt butter. Drop a small amount of butter into hole of bread and let it melt. Then drop an egg into the middle and break the yoke. Add salt and pepper to taste and cook until the egg is done.
Serve!

starting to get the willy’s about the whole bird-flu shennanigans though… what with the swans going belly-up and all…

  1. i actually liked it a lot. it’s very slick and ‘cool’ which is sort of a good thing and a bad thing at the same time. you do watch it knowing that within a year every goth boy in the country will have a ‘v’ costume in his wardrobe but the ‘coolness’ is on the whole well aplied. it’s got a really nice focus on language and the usage of words and some of the script is really nice. stephen fry – who i am a huge fan of – has some really great dialouge that just sounds perfect in his mouth.

    its set in the very near future (2012 i think) which is on the whole very well executed – no flying cars and tinfoil suits. the only big critisism i have is that the flashbacks to the chancellors rise are a bit cartoon-fascist to be believable (the chancellor is played by john hurt which is a fantastic nod to 1984)

    i liked getting to see something like this set in rainy, grimy london. its nice to see someone trying to blow up the houses of parliament rather than the pentagon for a change! it’s also enjoyably rooted in the history of british ‘terorism’ (the word is used liberarly thoughout the film) with particular attention of course to guy fawkes

    i mean, its not perfect and is certainly very ‘pop’ but still one of the better film aproaches to the subject since 1984 and the great future-sci-fi movies of the seventies like rollerball, logan’s run and soylent green.

    at the end of the day one of the things that i liked most about it was that it has such an unapologeticaly seditious spirit. it does make you want to go home, listen to anarchy in the uk and blow something up. which by it’s very existance in cinema theatres proves we are not actually living in a totalitarian nation yet…

    have you seen it / did you like it?

  2. I loved it. I saw it twice and I can’t wait for the DVD release. (Why do people say that? I can wait. I’d just prefer I didn’t have to.)

    Now that you’ve mentioned it, why wasn’t Anarchy in the UK in the soundtrack anywhere? Second song in the credits, maybe? It’s not as tuneful, but certainly more fitting than the Stones’ Street Fighting Man.

    Have you read the graphic novel? Fantastic read. I wonder if author Alan Moore regrets washing his hands of the film. Did you notice that his name never appeared in the credits or any promotional material?

  3. i haven’t read the graphic novel yet allthough ive had a peek at it in the shop. i really want to read it – i have a friend who has promised to lend me it. i heard that he apparantly denounces everything done from his stuff. i understand why its a painful process for authors but sometimes (a la stephen king and the shining) you’re left going ‘what?’ ‘why?’

    have you had a look at the website? it’s got some cool stuff on it…
