Welcome to Sparta…may I take your cloak?

300 photo

Boyfriend and I saw the “300” today. Just in case you’re living under a bridge or pretending to be homeless, it’s a movie based on Frank Miller’s graphic novel about the Battle of Thermopylae, where King Leonidas and 300 warriors fight to the death to defend Greece from the Persion army.

The movie was quite satisfying, I’d have to admit, with only one part that seemed over-long. But I won’t go into more details. If you are at all interested in grisly graphic novel adaptations of legendary events, this movie is a must-see!

One thing that struck me was that this legend/story/myth is nearly three thousand years old, and we are still telling/watching it! It’s truly humbling and amazing to me.

What stories, do you think, people three thousand years from now will be telling?

    I almost never leave a response, however i did some
    searching and wound up here Welcome to Sparta…may I take your
    cloak? | White beaches and the world’s biggest K-Mart.. And I do have a couple of questions for you if you don’t
    mind. Is it just me or does it look like a few of these
    remarks appear as if they are left by brain dead people?
    😛 And, if you are posting at other social sites, I’d like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post. Could you list of all of your social pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
