“I DEMAND TOTAL SILENCE FROM THE QUIET ONES”–Princess Melita Bonaparte

“Noise. Noise. Noise. Everyone makes noise, but no one says anything,” grumped Princess Melita Bonaparte. I heard too much noise today & am in a bad mood. If I am in a bad mood, you need to go into hiding!”

With that, we see that Mt. Vesuvius has put us on notice.

But wait, there’s hope. Her Imperial Highness had a photo-shoot today, and nothing pleases her or calms her down like the flash of light that comes from “Just one more, please, Your Highness.” Her mood lifted considerably. And she permitted Easter to be celebrated.

But, be careful! This happy time might not last too long. She thought she was going to get the part, and that the photo-shoot was being done to announce her being cast in the about-to-be shown film. How can we approach her & tell her that this is another done deal?

Who is willing to die for art?

Princess Melita Bonaparte is in a snit. “They clearly indicate that this is based upon real events. The real events were taken directly from my childhood. And I remember when college professors thought it their duty to smoke all during their classes,” coughed the despairing Princess.

“Let me show you who should have been cast in the lead role.”–Princess Melita

"Now, can there be any doubt that I was entitled by my training to play this part?"--Princess Melita Bonaparte

“I die for art every time a part that should go to me is given to someone else.”–Princess Melita Bonaparte. Her surname seems to make more sense as time goes on…

"My torments in this life can only add more to any role I play," said the Princess

Princess Melita Bonaparte: “I bring real horror to life, and live it on a daily basis.”

"I invent google glasses & they take that away from me. I pick up trash from the streets, and they accuse me of being the one littering.  They take & take & take--I can only suffer..Someday, the Greek government will thank me for my efforts in Restoration of their Monarchy!  Till then, I die for my art."

WHERE IS MY LIFE? I FOUND IT ON THE STREETS!

You can literally spend a lifetime searching & seeking validation for your identity, your values, your inner core–but so often, it’s right in front of you & you just need the experience of living to see it & know. Finding reassurance will come. The right people will provide that for you. They will not be people you might expect, but a bit of a surprise, really! Listen to them. Heed them. All will be good.

This is our life, too short lived, too much missed in the pace to live it.

HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S INEVITABLE DAY!

ABOUT THOMAS OUTT

Currently, taking computer-related classes @ City College of San Francisco & Project Mgt classes @ San Francisco State University, College of Extended Learning.  I enjoy reading, films, art, and music.  Generally, I enjoy many activities, only regretting that I don’t have enough time to properly devote to them as I would like.
Of particular interest, are films from the Silent Era, much of which I learned about through the annual San Francisco Silent Film Festival, held  in the early part of July, at the Castro Theatre.  Two events related to that endeavour were most significant in 2012.  One was the screening of the 1927 Able Gance film Napoleon.  This was in February/March @ the Paramount Theatre in Oakland, California.  The other was a screening of a Pola Negri film, The Spanish Dancer, as part of this year’s film festival line-up.  It was the first time that the Festival had screened anything from her long-neglected body of work.

One resource for seeing Silent Era Films throughout the year, is the Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum, 37417 Niles Blvd.  Fremont, California  94536 (www.nilesfilmmuseum.org)–It provides a weekly showing of Silent Era films that are accompanied by a musician, playing a simple upright piano–creating much the same atmosphere that our great-great grandparents would have experienced throughout much of the country 80+ years ago.
