a star map

Did you ever have a star map when you were young? I did, and I got really clever with it. I punched strategic holes in the thing so that I could lie on my back at night, hold it up in front of me and match the constellations with the map by lining the holes up with the stars.

I wish I still had that thing. It stirred my imagination.

One of my favorite "Cult Classic" movies is Quest For Fire, which I've seen at least 20 or 30 times. I love the way the movie ends, with the hero and his lover looking at the stars.

To me, that scene captured EVERYTHING that brought man out of the cave all the way to the moon. Curiosity. Wonder. Ambition combined with well-reasoned fear. Boldness. The willingness to take a chance.

If you've never seen that movie, go rent it. Pay close attention, too. It's fucking GREAT!

Quest for Fire was beautifully done, mesmerizing!

Remember when she turned him around to face her, when she really wanted him to 'know' her - his wonderment, her skill. That was a pivotal moment. As great as contemplating the moon together.

I liked it too. But I will say this, I'm down with doggie style, and unless I'm wrong, that African woman brought into his life the "missionary" position. Now, I aint won't to complain about which side is up... when the rubber meats the road, but... preferences are what they are.

The two of 'em lookin' at the stars at the end was kinda kool. Hell, all they had back then was stars, streams, fightin' and fuckin'. One showed reflection, one imagination and possibilities, one dominance, and lastly "Style". :)

Quest For Fire fucking rocks. Especially when they have the people hanging from trees, and are harvesting them one limb at a time. Brrr!

Hey, you know you shouldn't be glorifying that movie, it was racist! Yeah, how on earth could those stupid primitive white cavemen actually get away with what they did to the superior cultures of color. It was a travesty, obviously what really happened was that the superior cultures killed these white devils.

Oh by the way, that was the gist of a review I read when the movie came out, not my real opinion.
