too much typing—since 2003


life making poor choice of art to imitate

So, a week or so ago, I mentioned that on an episode of Malcolm in the Middle, Hal ended up framed for corporate embezzlement, after which "he lost nearly everything he owned in a government confiscation (sans trial)."

Good thing he's fictitious, and not an artist. It's pretentious to quote Marx, of course (and yes, I already have), but far less so to quote bubblegum pop songs of the sixties, so I'll do that instead: "second verse, history as farce"...only in this case, things run in reverse...

(You may have noted my tendency to mis-hear lyrics...)
