"What's the Death Star?"
"This... THIS IS THE DEATH STAR! I AM YOUR BOSS!"
"... you're Mr. Stevens?"
Eddie Izzard = mad as a hatter/genius. Indeed. I am still enjoying the Circle dvd immensely, despite it's rather unsatisfactory length (after Dress to Kill, I suppose I feel a little cheated).
It's really weird to read other people's opinions of Eddie... like... well, mostly the not so flattering ones. Because, okay, the first time I watched Circle I was like "God, he seems sort of tired." He seemed to be missing some crucial manic energy. But now that I've gone through it three times, I think it's still there... it's just been 'subsumed' a bit. ;P Well, anyway... I think his material in Circle is as good as Dress to Kill's... it's just got a more developed style to it. A little less vulgar and a little more intelligent.
But really... really... I don't laugh out loud at stand up comedians, generally. But, oh, I laugh at Eddie. Sometimes I turn on Comedy Central, you know... watch the American stand up... it's crap. It just is. Poor Mr. Izzard... I get the feeling that he likes America, he truly does... he just can't stand Americans. Though his American accent has improved since D2K.
In a completely unrelated note of sort-of interest... I was going through ljmatch.com and decided to take the normal test again. I found this question that I'd forgotten about:
You're on the highway in heavy traffic. Which driving style most closely resembles yours?
Then one of the two answers is this:
"See, I have this system, and if everyone followed it we'd all get there quicker..."
That is very much me... it just makes me laugh... here, have an image: me sitting in traffic formulating little football style plays in my head. Because I do.
