Delenda Est Carthago

Why not delve into a twisted mind? Thoughts on the world, history, politics, entertainment, comics, and why all shall call me master!

I plan on being the supreme dictator of the country, if not the world. Therefore, you might want to stay on my good side. Just a hint: ABBA rules!


17 February 1673

Molière dies.

Jean-Baptiste Poquelin, who took the stage name Molière when he was 22, collapsed on stage on this date and died a few hours later at the age of 51.

I've only seen two Molière plays: The Imaginary Invalid and The Misanthrope. Like Shakespeare's, his plays are easily adapted to the modern day (the version of The Misanthrope I saw had a nude scene, for crying out loud!), and he's much funnier than Bill. If you get a chance to see one of his plays performed, do so. It's a wonderful experience - he has a rapier-like wit and holds absolutely nothing sacred.

Oui! Oui! Je suis d'accord avec toi! Moliere est la merde!

I'm glad I know at least as much French to understand that. "La merde," indeed.
