Today is gonna be long day. I have to head to Ohio for about eight days and Tuesday is flying day. I’ve added a bunch of songs on my iPod! I am good to go, flying will be more pleasurable with good music to keep me calm and occupied!!
Now, Rory or Leslie? Not sure which she prefers, from Time Out for Mom,host a fun Tuesday Coffee Chat. Not a lot of fuss, just discuss the topic. I thought the topic was cool this week, meaning or translate neat and interesting!!!
In her words this is the Tuesday Coffee Chat Topic, “Bady Boys and Girls:
Who is your favourite literary or film villain? Feel free to include video, photos, or dialogue in your post to convince us your bad boy, or girl is the scariest meanie of all.”
Gosh, I could probably name quite a few Villains and not just make believe, ha,ha!! BUT Edgar Allen Poe’s a Tell Tale Heart has stuck with me since I read it in Junior High. Now, that is a long, long time ago. There is something terrible creepy about someone killing an old man over a gross eye and being super, extra, nice to the person right before they knock him off.
Edgar Allen Poe was one creepy writer! If you have not read The Tell-Tale Heart,read it! CREEPY! Like I said,the main character kills an old man for no apparent reason other than an irritating eye! Now, I won’t give away the ending but all I have to say is it IS creepy and the nutty killer is A total whackadoo or MAD, yes, MAD!! (I know, most killers are but seriously this guy is WHACKED) And, a PERFECT VILLAIN is MAD,NUTTY and a WHACKADOODLE!! Oh, and will kill on a whim, now that is a villain!!!
Oh, and on a side note, in 1843, forensic evidence was already a concern,interesting,huh? You, notice Poe, states “I then replaced the boards so cleverly, so cunningly, that no human eye –not even his –could have detected any thing wrong. There was nothing to wash out –no stain of any kind –no blood-spot whatever. ”
If you don’t want to read it enjoy this great reading of it the short story!!
Alright, fess up, who is your love to hate villain?
