*smacks herself upside the head* Yeah, it *was*
Aristotle.  Haven't adjusted to the lack-of-sleep
schedule that school brings yet. <g>

Bar fight?  Hm... sounds entertaining.  <G> ;) Guess
I'm too literal.  When I heard "Battle of Hastings" I
think the big one with King Harold back in 1066...

Subject: Re: Battle of Hastings

Of course, Aristotle and Nicholas may not have been talking about the battle
that took place in 1066.  My family used to holiday there when I was a
little girl, and I'm sure there were one or two later minor skirmishes took
place in and around the town, though a search of the web has failed to
produce anything.  (Sigh!  Does this mean that I *have* to go and visit one
of my all time favourite places on the planet for research purposes later
this year when everything's open for the holiday season?  That would be a
pity.... not! <G>)

However, it did remind me on one possible event - the wreck of the Dutch
ship the "Amsterdam" in either 1748 or 1749 as a result of a mutiny just
offshore at Hastings.

Mutiny = battle.  Well, okay, not every time, but frequently.  Especially if
you're the one on the wrong end of the mutineers' weapons!

Hmm... this one looks definitely promising.  Maybe Aristotle was on board
her when the mutiny took place, and our favourite Knight in shining armour
came to his rescue?  And the 1740s is a lot better date to work with!

Make mine a nice piece of Jarlsburg, please!

Subject: FK Moment

I was just reading CNN.com when I saw a headline that read "Dead Man
Found Alive in Morgue."  Needless to say, FK was the first thing that
popped into my head.  Here is the link for those who are interested.

Subject: Stonetree sighting

I'm taking a film & Lit class this quarter
The movie we saw this week was  "Smoke Signals"
It's about modern life on an indian Rez

In the opening scene showed someone's house on fire
someone throws a baby out the window
this guy with really long hair runs
& cetches the baby before it hits the ground
He pulls his hair back . . . . HAY its Gary Farmer/Stonetree

Gary Farmer played a drunk who, turns out started the fire
I kept expecting Nick or Schanke to show up & tell
Stonetree to go home while they investagate

it was made in 1998, about 5 yrs after he was Stonetree

This movie had alot of  FK style flashbacks
ovbusally they don't go back hundreds of years
But Victor,Gary Farmer's son, shifts back & forth
showing us memories

I wonder if the writer/director has seen any FK flashbacks

I really liked this movie, but seeing Stonetree again just made it

EXCELLENT movie! There's another very loose FK association.

Unfortunately, I don't remember the actress' name off the top of my head, but
the woman who plays the grandmother in the movie was in the play 'Red River'
with Greg Kramer. A very talented actress and nice lady.

Gary Farmer is excellent in this film. Everyone in this film is excellent.

Subject: FK ~ Re:  Battle of Hastings

I like Nancy's explanation, too.

You know, I think there's a music store in Dallas called "Hastings."
Hmmm. . .

I guess we'll always be coming up with creative new explanations
for those lapses in FK logic, huh?  Makes me wonder if the show's
originators would've been more careful if they'd had any clue
about the future - the fan base, dvds, etc.  {Or maybe, when writing
under a tight deadline, lapses aren't important.}

I always thought that the writers meant for him to say
"Agincourt". That one took place in the fifteenth century.

Subject: Tsunami update re GWD

Okay, Quinn from GWDFC has put it up on the messageboard and there has
been message from Ger's dad in the latest edition of the church
newsletter, so I fell it is safe to say it here (but I bet you all know
already): Emyr, Ger's brother, and his family were in Thailand when the
disaster hit, but they are safe and sound.
They were in an area that wasn't hit as badly and thankfully were home
when the wave hit (their house is on a little hill). Actually Emyr
provided shelter for about 300 people at his home.

Subject: Re: Battle of Hastings

Let's see: Hastings Street is a major road through the downtown core of
Vancouver, B.C. Just a couple blocks north of Hastings & Carrall St. is Blood
Alley Square: "According to stories Blood Alley was the location for a number of
butcher shops. At the end of each day they would be rinsed out resulting in the
inevitable blood in the street. As if that was not enough they used to hold
public executions in blood alley square."

Why am I suddenly thinking of a crossover between FK & Davinci's Inquest?
