Have taken to reading 'Dhalgren' in tiny snatches in the bathroom, it's no 'V.', but it serves the purpose pretty well. Was thinking about 'V.', sitting alone on a toilet at my parents' house while watching 'V for Vendetta' yesterday, also 'V: The Miniseries'.

V        V
 V     V
  V  V

In a funny mental space, cramped and claustrophobic, opening onto terrifying panoramas, seem lovely & idyllic, what's rustling behind that bush?

What did you think of V for Vendetta? I liked it except for the final fight sequence which was like finding a Vegas neon display amid the tiles of Volubilis.

I didn't exactly dislike it, I thought a lot of the writing was sort of sloppy and stupid, the visuals in that fight sequence were distracting and badly thought out. I don't know, I'd like to be sympathetic to it, I think it's good that things like that are made, didn't really do that much for me.
