Da Vinci-Free Zone

I hereby declare this blog a DaVinci-free zone. I have not read The DaVinci Code. I will not watch the movie. I consider its premise utter tripe not worth one iota of the attention--positive or negative--that it's been given. I am tired of reading articles on what a fascinating story it is--it's just another piece of pulp fiction! I am tired of reading articles on where it's wrong--as if any sentient being needed to have that explained! (Oh, yeah--I am on Earth, aren't I? Never mind.)

Anyway, I will not dignify DVC with anything resembling discussion or analysis of it on this blog. I will not link to anything DVC or anti-DVC. I will make a point of hereafter ignoring anything to do with it. Anyone who wishes to may join me in proactively tossing this bit of sensationalist claptrap on the ash-heap of literary obscurity where it belongs and should, if humanity has not abandoned taste entirely, eventually end up.

As an alternative, I plan to take in Pride and Prejudice. The 5-hour A&E Colin Firth/Jennifer Ehle version. Maybe with popcorn and knitting.

heheheh!!! I also haven't read the book although it has been sitting on my bookshelf for over a year now (a friend gave it to me because he thought I was being too closed minded not to read it)

Anyway I heard on Aussie news that it got a "luke warm" reception at the Cannes film festival...they actually said "Davinci Code crucified at Cannes"...lol! who writes these lines anyway?

Yeah, the critics over here are now panning it on cinematic and literary grounds so maybe it will go out with a whimper!

For a while there, I couldn't seem to open a newspaper, bring up the online news services, or switch on the radio or TV without getting "all DVC, all the time."
