1984 marathon

1984 is my favorite book. It has been since I was a sophomore in high school. I was the only one in my english class to get it. I sat there and explained about the mocking of the Soviet Unior, the threat of socialism in the US and Europe, and the power that technology in the hands of the government can have over citizens.

Did any other 15 year old care? Nope. Back to listening to Vanilla Ice was more important. Vanilla Ice is now an un person. His face has been taped over with.. um.. well, no one could replace him. He wasn't that good - just that manufactured.

But the 20th anniversay of 1984 is approaching. I think I might pull out my well-worn copy of the book and read it again.. or watch the movie.

Double plus good.
