This is not strictly Perl-ish (or Linux-is), but I once asked 
Gloria Wall (Larry's wife, and also a linguist by training)
  "What's more important about Perl -- the language or the culture?".
She answered, simply 
  "You can't separate culture from language".


The "Life of Brian" reopens this Friday in Seattle at the Neptune for
an exclusive engagement.


Given that it's such a piece of the Geek culture, I figured it would
be fun to see it as a group.

I've already ordered tickets for the 7:15 Friday, May 14th. Here's a
link so you can, too. If you do, send me an email, and I'll coordinate
a get-together.

A blurb from the Landmark Theatre Site:

    In response to the furor over Mel Gibson's The Passion of the
    Christ, Monty Python unleashes the theatrical re-release (or
    second coming) of Life of Brian, the troupe's quasi-Biblical saga
    of an inept, reluctant messiah (Graham Chapman) who happened to be
    born on the same night as Jesus. Director Terry Jones, along with
    regulars Michael Palin, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam and Eric Idle,
    take multiple roles in an irreverent religious satire that raised
    the ire of church groups from coast to coast when originally
    released. Official Web Site Read an extract from Always Look on
    the Bright Side of Life, Robert Sellers' book about the history of
    HandMade Films, with details about the making of Monty Python's
    Life of Brian.
