Blades of Glory

Posted by: Herr Prof. Dr. von Korncrake on April 4th, 2007

Last night, at the behest of my chief research assistants, Helmut and Manfred, I attended the cinema.

It all started after lunch, during the early afternoon cigarette break.

“Herr Professor Doktor von Korncrake,” said Manfred, as he and Helmut stood at the door to my office, their attitudes properly deferrential, “you should perhaps go see this funny movie, with Will Ferrell and Jon Heder, the two Americans who pretend to be the warme Brüder figure skaters”

“Manfred,” I replied, “why should I do this? You know I only like the serious cinema.” They both looked downcast.

“But Herr Professor Doktor,” squeaked Helmut, “we saw it last night and it was very funny, and my sister in Vienna knowns Uwe Kagelmann, and she says that he says it is wunderbar.”

“Very well, Helmut, if Bronze Medalist Uwe Kagelmann recommends this movie I will see it. But,” and here I lowered my voice to project myself properly, “If I do not like it, you shall hear about it.”

Well, there’s nothing like putting a good fright into the research assistants to make me cheery and ready for a laugh, and so it was with a light heart that I went down to the KinoPlex 12 to see this film.

About This Blog

Posted by: Herr Prof. Dr. von Korncrake on April 4th, 2007

This blog shall contain my musings about pop culture, movies, novels, television shows, music, and anything else that attracts my attention. Although I am a professional semiotician, and a highly trained academic, I shall attempt to insure that what is written here will be neither stuffy, nor exceptionally obscure. Of course, this does not mean that I will be dumbing down the content, only that I will try to speak to the masses in something approaching their own language.

In other words, Herr Prof. Dr. B. P. von Korncrake is in the hizzouse!
