I'm still waiting to hear those thrilling stories of when you worked at the CN tower. Did you say you worked the exterior elevator to the clouds?

Drove all the elevators, and had the chance to climb the antenna to the top (5-part ladder imside, straight up the centre). A depressing number of years ago...

Lyric in the song "Silver Train" from an album called Goats Head Soup, which I hear they're reissuing later this year. ST was played twice in 2014 with a guitarist named Mick Taylor.

I saw the band play "Heartbreaker" in Houston in 2019, also from GHS. Criss Cross is amazing!

My parents chose it. Maybe because it was my dad’s name, they gave it to me. Or, it could be just a coincidence. Anyway, it stuck.

I worked in Hollywood. Film. 24 Frames Per Second is supposed to be an approximation of life. I love the Rolling Stones.

It's a take on 'Fancyman Blues'...one of my all-time favorite Stones' tracks. And I just happen to LOVE the Blues too.

My ultimate guitar hero. Unfortunately he could not play in Holland this month due to the virus. Probably will never see him live again, just like the Stones (with Mick Taylor). sad smiley

Nellcote is the mansion that Keith Richards rented on the Cote d'Azur in southern France.
The Stones recorded much of Exile On Main Street in the basement of this house in 1971.

I got it from the guys in the locker room at my gym. They used to tease me in the showers. I just got used to it and eventually laughed it off. But the name stuck.

I was born in '74 (same birthday as Mick Taylor...different year of course), so I've always had an affinity for the IORR album and that cover art.

And figured my feelings would flood on the page (board) afterall.

"Angie"-->angee.

From andee, my name, which was spelled andi before the internet, short for Andrea.

Such an interesting topic, also covered in my book and other writings.
Endlessly fascinating, I find.

(Just to add: Men with erect nipples, mentioned above. Love it.) cool smiley

I'm trying to picture climbing the antenna but my mind won't let me go there. Please describe it, does it sway up there?

Are you the only person on the planet to be qualified in “the reception of the Ancient World”? Are you now working as a receptionist for your company?

Just a little good-natured joshing. Seriously, I would be interested to know more about your qualification, not that you’re under any obligation to respond.

Ha ha !

Good posting.

Now, many years back in that time-frame of the early 1990s I was at university. My BA was in Classics, majoring in Latin. I was two papers off getting a double first, missing by seven marks on Ancient Literary Theory, and Latin unseen.

BA involved Greek Epic, i.e Homer's Odyssey, Iliad, Apollonius of Rhodes' Argonautica: Roman epic involved Virgil's Aeneid, Ovid's Metamorphoses, Lucan's Pharsalia.

I also worked on Latin Love Poetry: Catullus, Propertius, Tibullus, Ovid's Amores, Ars Amatoria.

However, my BA dissertation was on Virtue & Vice In Juvenal's Satires, which I enjoyed tremendously. I'd recommend anyone to read Juvenal, as he's a great author, a bit bad tempered at times but the social commentary remains timeless.

After I did my BA, circa 1996, I went on and did a Masters in the reception of the Ancient World. That involved analysing how Greek Tragedy, i.e Euripides, Sophocles, and Aeschylus would be produced and presented in the modern world. I analysed an adaptation of Medea by Pier Paolo Passolini, likewise Oedipe Re by Pasolini too. Furthermore, I analysed a production of the Bacchae by Wole Soyinka, and Jean Anouilh's version of Antigone. Additionally, I read Hegel's exposition of Antigone, Nietzsche's Birth of Tragedy, and applied them to papers on Greek Tragedy.

I also, at Masters level, looked at Rome On Film, i.e the silent Ben Hur compared to the Charlton Heston 50s version. Quo Vadis was also factored in. Additionally, I looked at 19th Century Victorians In Togas novels such as The Last Days of Pompeii by Edward Bulwer-Lytton (an awful novel by any stretch of the imagination). I also continued with a Masters degree in Roman Satire, and its accompanying influence on St Jerome.

I'm, however, not a receptionist at Verizon: I do a thing called enhanced due diligence and anti-money laundering anti-bribery corruption analysis.

However, I'm not the only Classics scholar in the world - the UK prime minister, Boris Johnson, is. Tom Hiddleston, he of Loki-fame, is also a classicist.

So, I hope that sums me up a bit.

It also explains why I love Voodoo Lounge and Bridges to Babylon: I was at uni when them two came out, and still listen to them.

Geez...I do not remember.

I THINK that IORR switched to a new format and the history was all erased (circa 2004)...and I had to pick a new name. Since my old one was the most perfect one possible, I decided to throw it back in the hat and take a generic.
