CRAIG CONLEY (Prof. Oddfellow) is recognized by Encarta as “America’s most creative and diligent scholar of letters, words and punctuation.” He has been called a “language fanatic” by Page Six gossip columnist Cindy Adams, a “cult hero” by Publisher’s Weekly, and “a true Renaissance man of the modern era, diving headfirst into comprehensive, open-minded study of realms obscured or merely obscure” by Clint Marsh. An eccentric scholar, Conley’s ideas are often decades ahead of their time. He invented the concept of the “virtual pet” in 1980, fifteen years before the debut of the popular “Tamagotchi” in Japan. His virtual pet, actually a rare flower, still thrives and has reached an incomprehensible size. Conley’s website is OneLetterWords.com.
We were tickled by this line from a film synopsis:
"The 1994 restoration [of Die Finanzen des Großherzogs] confirms that this is indeed a farce by FW Murnau."
We've always thought that one should never judge a film's genre without having seen the original negative. The Murnau bombshell almost beats that time they restored the Sistine Chapel and confirmed that it was all an elaborate self-portrait of Michelangelo.
SPOILER ALERT: STOP READING IF YOU ARE STILL GUESSING....I remember a movie by this name as being a very sick vampire flick. But I saw it when I was a kid. I remember the vampires had labs where they were "milking" the humans for blood in a very dispassionate manner. I imagine it was a B minus movie at best judging by my rear-view critical kid mind.
