every time i think about it, it makes me giggle. seriously, still, like three days later, every single time.

I'm trying to take care of a number of different things for work here in Madison, and yet all I can think about are various ideas for soapssff: yes! Snakes on a Plane short short fan fiction. Anyway, Tonya has got her own S.O.A.P. fever going on now, and she provides a quote from Samuel L. Jackson in Premiere magazine:
When I picked up the script and I saw the title, I didn't ever read it and I said, "I want to do it." You know, before the I opened the first page, Snakes on a Plane. If this is what I think it is, I want to be in this. I want to be on a plane full of poisonous snakes. And I want to see other people on a plane full of poisonous snakes.
I know the standard blogger thing is to offer some little witty or insightful commentary after quoting something after a magazine, but, really, what more is there to say. In fact, all I really just want to do is repeat the quote again. Seriously, there is nothing I would rather do than just retype:
When I picked up the script and I saw the title, I didn't ever read it and I said, "I want to do it." You know, before the I opened the first page, Snakes on a Plane. If this is what I think it is, I want to be in this. I want to be on a plane full of poisonous snakes. And I want to see other people on a plane full of poisonous snakes.

No, there are no semiotics majors out there.

My Ph.D. minor was in semiotics (yes, really). I don't have any insight into recent trends in cinema as a result, however.

Note for instructors: when students are too lazy to do their own research, make a strong claim. They will then do the research to prove you wrong. Everybody wins.

perhaps, though this time you were proven wrong by someone other than a student.
