On South Main Street there is a plaque that says, ‘With Great Power Comes Great Responsibilty, Stan Lee’. There’s a lot of comic book readers out there, but not in the White Citizen’s Council. Maybe they should get some milk and cookies and a flashlight and hide under the covers with Marvel’s Thor. I tried to read the Wikipedia on it but the plot is more complicated than Dark Shadows.
Anyway, calling on the experts at The Wild Hunt, who actually do worship the gods, I find a neat summary. The Pagans and Witches are fine with it, how ironic that the Christians are all exercised.
Some Christians turned a Middle-Eastern Rabbi into a blonde, so this kind of thing has been going on for a long time. Happy Yule.
SECOND THOUGHTS: Mr. Green reminded me of some old movies where Anglo actors donned weird face paint to play roles. Mickey Rooney playing a Japanese photographer in ‘Breakfast at Tiffanys’ is one that haunts my nightmares. He did not look hot. Idris Elba looks super-hot.
Linda Hunt scandalized the film critics when she played the role of a Chinese-Australian man. I heard that she did a fine job.
For her role as the male Chinese-Australian photographer, Hunt won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 1983, becoming the first person to win an Oscar for playing a character of the opposite sex (also the first to win playing an Australian character).
What’s the big deal? They’re actors. That’s what they do.
