That he would take from a stranger

Oh, and the correct title for this post is the comment I made vis-à-vis the first few sentences of Empiricism and Philosophy of Mind, to wit, that he does have Wittgenstein obviously in mind, but he's speaking through allusions, darkly.

"Through allusions, darkly" being the title, obvs.

So, posterity, eh?

I think the game didn't work properly because not everyone who recognized a given reference indicated that they recognized it. More people than just apostropher should have acknowledged "Fast and bulbous", for example. So we got credit for references that were recognized by multiple people, instead of just for references recognized by a couple.

31: WWF / Reflections in a Golden Eye
52: The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the Eighth Dimension
54: Seinfeld
61: Sir Mix-a-lot
62: The Fall
103: Laura Nyro
125: Dark City
130: The Deadly Bees

etc., etc.

Good work everyone, especially NickS.

As any watcher of The Best Show On Television knows, Smasher's "If you come at the king, you best not miss." is The Wire.

Ogged's "Dim mak." I'm guessing is the Van Damme movie Bloodsport.

My 101 See this? This... is my boomstick! is Army of Darkness. A Bruce Campbell classic.

Since I guessed a Van Damme movie for Ogged's, my 127 is Hard Target. I'm not one to resist a movie that teams up Van Damme and Wilford Brimley.

Safari? Hmm... doesn't work on some websites, but it seems that they finally fixed the JavaScript engine that was responsible for most of the suckiness. Haven't had any issues with it.

There are lots of things that don't work quite right in Safari, chief among them (for my usage) being the Movable Type interface. Also, the app hangs and has to be force quit a lot.

They do - I think it came out a little before the iPhone. Well... I don't know what to say. Safari 2 used to hang forever on any page doing mildly fancy Javascript due to a serious performance bug, but I haven't noticed that in Safari 3 (currently on 3.0.3).

Surprisingly little Google needed, as it happens. Although with the Cordwainer Smith I have to admit to only being familiar with snippets I've read online. Which is awfully shameful.

With Twice Upon a Time, the version I'm familiar with is actually the rather obscure animated edition from the Eighties. (I think it was a Lucasfilm affair.) The "F.G.M." quote has always stuck with me as one of the funniest things ever.

Cordwainer Smith is good, good, good. But has always been a pain to find, which is why the two books that have survived all of my transoceanic wanderings do not get lent out. "Scanners" is one of the genre's immortal short stories, and there's really nobody else like him at all.

I was thinking about H2G2 on the "car park" vs "inconvenience." As far as I know, there is only the animated Twice Upon a Time, which is of course well beyond brilliant. I could geek out about that movie for far too long. Imagine a Lucasfilm that had done more on that level and not given the world ewoks and jarjar binks.

And I didn't quite get the Beethoven-Willis connection, but I think that's a result of having only seen the first of those movies a long time ago in a cinema far, far away.

Oh, whoops, you said "D" not "E." Yes, with Hitchhikers, I did love the radio dramas but imprinted on the books first, so that's where my brain just tends to go.

Die Hard and Beethoven: a moving rendition of "Ode to Joy" plays when Hans Gruber and his computer geek henchman Theo (of the "night before Christmas" quote) crack open the safe. I just remember it because the guy playing Theo was so consistently funny.
