Francesca’s List of Ways to Revise the Cold War
- Go and see the new X-Men film, which I’m told is about the Cuban Missile Crisis.
- Read Watchmen. Alternate reality, psh. It involves American paranoia.
- Watch Rocky IV. I think that’s the one with the blatant propaganda… And, sadly, Sylvester Stallone has more obvious surgery in this one. I miss his old face.
- Hit the BBC Bitesize website’s Cold War videos. Ah, they are funny. Really.
What of the above list have I actually done? Technically, none of them. I’m up to the Berlin Wall on Bitesize, I forgot to get Watchmen out the library and I only thought of Rocky today.
Ellen, people are giving me grief about those photos (this is the only way to reach you because I’m not on Facebook). Apparently Straightened Hair and Made Over Frank is, well, cooler than Everyday Dragged Through a Hedge Frank.
