@dialectric That would be a great point if anyone were arguing that "better than search for Spock" was the goal here.
Finding plot holes is a Star Trek story is like shooting babelfish in a quantum anomaly.
An artist must regulate his life. Here is my precise daily schedule. I rise at 7.18; am inspired from 10.30 to 11.47. I lunch at 12.11 and leave the table at 12.14. A healthy horse-back ride on my property from 1.19 to 2.35. Another round of inspiration from 3.12 to 4.07.
From 5.00 to 6.47 various occupations (fencing, reflecting, immobility, visits, dexterity, swimming, etc.).
Dinner is served at 7.16 and finished at 7.20. After from 8.09 to 9.59 symphonic readings out loud.
I go to bed regularly at 10.37. Once a week I wake up with a start at 3.14 A.M. (Tuesdays.)
I eat only white food: eggs, sugar, shredded bones, the fat of dead animals, rice, turnips, sausages in camphor, pastry, cheese (the white varieties), cotton salad, and certain kinds of fish (skinned).
I boil my wine and drink it cold mixed with fuchsia juice. I have a good appetite but never talk when eating for fear of strangulation.
I breathe carefully (a little at a time) and dance very rarely. When walking I hold my sides and look steadily behind me.
Being of serious demeanor, it is unintentional when I laugh. I always apologize very affably.
I sleep with only one eye closed; I sleep very hard. My bed is round with a hole in it for my head to go through. Every hour a servant takes my temperature and gives me another.
For a long time I have subscribed to a fashion magazine. I wear a white cap, white socks, and a white vest.
My doctor has always told me to smoke. He even explains himself: “Smoke, my friend. Otherwise someone else will smoke in your place.”

@melis Ah yes, the classic "I'm not touching you, I'm not touching you" defense.
I got verified for the Klout bump. It hasn't come yet, but i'm optimistic.
I'm pretty sure it's that Luhrman seems to think he's making something other than "teenager's fever dreams"? And also seems fond of willfully ignoring the, um, subtler angles of the texts he translates to the big screen.
Also, that Baz is NOT A NAME.
Wait, am I missing a reference? All I imagine for "Baz Luhrmann's Black Hobbit" is, like, Tracy Morgan walking on his knees in a sequin ballgown.
@shostakobitch if it had been, there would surely be a much livelier comment thread
The Vanderbilts are parvenus and they know it. It is no coincidence that Marble House was used as the interior of Jay Gatsby's house in the 1974 film.
