Are you sure that's not crack you're drinking?

Looks very, uhhh, different. I might just have to try a taste of the stuff, instead of a whole drink. Yes, I fear for my sanity.

does this mean you can drink it and drive just fine, just relaxed?

Absinthe derives its name from the Greek word apsinthion, which ironically, means undrinkable.

Sure. You'll be nice and relaxed when you reach the scene of the accident...

Forget your sanity. Fear for your tastebuds instead.

You've been warned...

I'm on an almost ENDelt-like scattershot posting on this thread, aren't I?

Cool.

It is. Crown for everyday imbibing. Absinthe for special occasions.

I thought the name was derived from the ancient sanskrit word "Abisonna", which means, "Dude, the drapes are breathing!".

Saw three Bunuel films today, paisan.

Un chien andalou - weird, which was the point, I guess. So in that regard it succeeded. And yeah I watched the eyeball about 5 times. Gross.

Land Without Bread - One of the most shocking and depressing documentaries I've seen.

and

The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie - Great attack; good movie. I did enjoy this one.

"Andalou" was surrealism for it's own sake. When Bunuel and Salvador Dali were writing the script, they agreed that no individual scene would interrelate to any other scene in the film. Yeah, the eyeball bit is still remarkable, even after 75 years. I would recommend seeing L'Age d'Or a sort-of sequel that does contain a narrative flow about a man and woman who are constantly frustrated in their attempts to consummate a physical relationship.

Also, if you enjoyed "Discreet Charm", you may like another Bunuel film called The Exterminating Angel. I always think of these two as companion pieces. In "Angel", a group of upper-crust elitists gather for a dinner party. Once there, they find that they cannot leave and no-one from outside can get in. From there the characters start breaking down in various interesting ways. It's another attack on the bourgeoisie, Bunuel's favorite target. I highly recommend a viewing.

I look for those two. Belle de jour is easy to get ahold of, so I'll probably being seeing that real soon. I've been going to the University of Northern Iowa to get my films. They have a great variety of foreigns, classics. Lots of Fellini - woohoo!
