Thank you very much to everyone who responded, both publicly and privately, to
my question about e-mail discussion groups devoted to literary topics.  In case
anyone is interested, I found exactly what I was looking for through gopher at
the University of Michigan in the list compiled by Diane K. Kovacs, which was
suggested by some of you on the list and one of the reference librarians here
at the U. of Scranton.  Perhaps, in a few months, I'll send in a posting about
how the assignment worked out.  Thanks again!

Dear all,
 
I'm catching up on a month's worth of mail, so this is way late for the
discussion, but I want to note the irony of any intelligent discussion of an
animation technique that results in heroines who look like a cross between
Barbie and Precious Moments figurines ("something about those eyes...").  If
there is any achievement at all in _B&B_ (or _LM_ or _Aladdin_), it is in such
production numbers as "Be OUr Guest" and "Under the Sea."  Artistically, Disney
since, say, _Snow WHite_, has specialized in pat storylines w/ such minimal or
banal complications that they really leave nothing to talk about aesthetically.
If we hadn't all seen them in our dewy childhoods and remembered them now with
nostalgic affection, most would die their long-deserved deaths--following _The
Black Hole_ to the Sargasso of film.  History of film? yes.  Interesting
moments? Yes.  Cultural artifacts?  For what that's worth, yes.  Great movies?
Sorry.
 
Unapologetically,
 
James McKenna

Comment:        Re: SHK 5.0613  Re: Klingon Translations
 
Speaking of Shakespeare and Klingons, several years ago when I was a poor
college student, I saw a t-shirt that had a drawing of Shakespeare with a
Klingon forehead.  The caption read: "You haven't read Shakespeare until you've
read him in the original Klingon."  Now I'm employed, and I have the 12 bucks
to buy the shirt.  But I can't find it.  If you know where I can find this
must-have t-shirt, please e-mail me or post to the list.
 
Many thanks.
Hilve
