FOWC with Fandango — Movie


It’s March 19, 2023. Welcome to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (U.S.).

Today’s word is “movie.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Please check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. Show them some love.

    Sound Of Music
    very popular movie
    of its time
    which has not yet been banned
    for political incorrectness
    or non inclusiveness…

    portraying domestic servants
    wearing aprons (indicating subservience)
    wandering about the outdoors
    singing delusional songs about hills being alive
    with the sound of music for a thousand years
    is giving misinformation to the young and impressionable
    teachers choosing this song for the school choir could find themselves
    at the wrong end of some very expensive litigation in our mad new world !

        Indeed ! Look what happened to the famous author Enid Blyton. They are rewriting her books to make them more politically correct.

      Well, drats. Since you mentioned anthropology, I was going to recommend a book. If I recall correctly, I like the reading most for the content of the footnotes. That’s a good one, though, that professors of anthropology are (or can be) fabulists. 😂

        Specifically about social and cultural anthropologists: You run off to some little place where no other social scientists have been. You stay for a year or two. You come back to write out thesis. As you draft it your advisors keep on reminding you that you have to make some unique contribution to the field – say more than “well they were nice folks, ate the afterbirths, husbands moved to the wife’s home, and were syncretic Christians.” Your advisors start saying things like, “well you might not make it on what you got.” You rewrite, and now they practice an esoteric form of circulating cunubion ( just invented, but wow will this be an addition to the literature!), your committee goes aphid for it, you get you doctorate, and you quietly never talk about the conubion at any American Anthropological Association meetings. You get tenure at Lipscom Community College, teach, shit around and BS with your students about where you did fieldwork, and eventually retire. Eventually someone actually reads your dissertation while preparing to go do their fieldwork in the same community. Needless to say that never find the conubuin, but are afraid to tell their committee this, It is assumed that it was a custom that dies out. See! That’s how you do it!

          I have a family member who recently graduated with a degree in anthropology, and minor in something else, only an undergrad major though; not corrupted.

            You’ve heard about gateway drugs…that’s how I started, and you can see how I turned out.
