Posts Tagged ‘Roman emperor’

A marble bust of Caligula restored to its original colors. The colors were identified from particles trapped in the marble.

Contrary to popular belief, the Roman emperor Caligula; a redhead, we now know, did not marry his horse Incitatus, instead, suggested said beast be made a Roman Consul. The emperor, did in fact procured him a wife–a mare named Penelope. History is silent as to whether they were formally joined as stud and mare, but I imagine it must have been an ecstatic soi·rée.

Flash forward some 2000 years.

Wannabe senator J.D. Hayworth, currently giving Senator McCain, a run for his money in Arizona’s 2010 Senate race; thinks that a recent Massachusetts Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage could somehow “…lead to a man someday marrying his horse. ”  Who knows, Wilber. Maybe so, maybe no.

Seems like a trend here. Take (please) the apply named anti-choice anti-homo freak Neal Horsley, who actually admitted to having had sex with a mule–before he found Jesus! Well, that’s OK then.

Speaking of old movies, the legendary (ta FrankenSteam, anyway) ‘Pasoliniesque’ Italian film director Tinto Brass; Salon Kitty, has been hinting around at a re-make of his decades old film “Caligula,” in 3D! This hot on the heels of pots-of-money being made on films such as “Avatar” and “Alice In Wonderland.” No surprise, as Hollywood goes there the money goes. Yet Bass, who claims it was the Americans who tainted his mainstream porn movie, now strangely, looks to America again, in the guise of  technology, for vindication.

Tinto Brass, the 76-year-old Italian film-maker behind the notorious 1979 epic, announces plans to revisit project ‘ruined by Americans.’

Some advise, Direttore Brass, from the film underground;  don’t let ’em get their filthy hands on your work. They’ll just ‘cock’ it up like they did the last time.
