BLDBLOG is mental

September 27, 2006 Leave a comment Go to comments

I wind up saving a lot of posts from BLDBLOG for later. They tend to be full of madcap and Important-with-a-capital-i ideas – today’s piece on Cecil B. DeMille’s “City of the Pharoah” is no exception. It ends with this:

Excavations continue – leading to the controversial conclusion that human civilization in North America was really a massive piece of performance art, from sea to shining sea – a cinematic installation upon the plains – and so whatever film had been made there must surely still exist…

Thus begins a whole new, Paul Austerian chapter of future archaeology – in which they hunt for the lost and secret films of a buried North America.

Be sure to read the whole thing.
