I've just come back from watching Avatar, and feel I should commit my thoughts to (electronic) paper "while it's fresh", to quote the character Dr. Grace Augustine. Perhaps it's just the time I happened to see this film - the vividness and dreadfulness of my dreams lately have been telling me I need some kind of release - but what does that matter? I may be trying to justify to myself why something so relatively and ostensibly banal as sitting watching a screen could have a greater impact on me than some of the extraordinary things I've been lucky enough to see and experience but, even if I could achieve some kind of justification, it would be irrelevant. The point is this, and I'm not ashamed to say so: watching Avatar was one of the most intense experiences of my life. In the last five minutes, everything that had built up inside me during the film, and I suspect for a lot longer than that, came to the surface and, in a dark room full of hundreds of people, I cried like I have never cried while watching a film. My tears were for everything that I love and hate about my life, everything I love and hate about our life as a species, and for the mystery of life itself. As the credits began to roll, my glasses were steamed up, the neck of my shirt wet with the tears that had run that far, my upper lip snotty, my forehead and the rest of my shirt soaked with sweat, and I could barely walk when I got outside: this is not hyperbole. Even now, sitting at home, the table next to me carrying an empty beer bottle and an ashtray with a stubbed-out cigarette, I'm more than a little shaky. Strange, even grotesque, that an imaginary story set in an imaginary future in an imaginary place could make reality - my own present reality as an individual and as a part of mankind's squalid, greedy, barbaric story - more real to me than any piece of documentary ever has. But that is the value of art and, if a piece of art is to be judged on that criterion, Avatar is better than anything I can remember. If it is to be judged on beauty, or entertainment, or involuntary emotional response - the same may apply for me. If I could afford to own The Mona Lisa, I'd rather have spent that money on the ticket to see Avatar that cost me ?9.50. But maybe The Mona Lisa does for some people what Avatar just did for me. "Hm, yes, I think so too, but did you enjoy it overall?" "OMG how much do you think that film cost to make?" were remarks among the chatter I heard as, head down, I made my way to the front door as quickly as possible. I wanted to slap these people and, if I'd been able to think of any words at the time, I'd like to have quoted one of my former lecturers, the poet Tom Leonard, who once mentioned in a lecture the academics who had been sitting in front of him at a poetry reading, and who began to analyse a poem just after it had been read: "For fuck's sake, can ye no just let yersel be swept away by the beauty of a thing before you start rippin it tae pieces?!" I'll continue being swept away by Avatar for some time. Go and see it, in 3D IMAX. -- Some more more words, written a few days later and in response to some of the replies here: For the first while my critical mind was switched on: I thought to myself that the characters were predictable and how were they going to be developed with such a cheesy script anyway, and then the story, while ostensibly Green and anti-war, might be read postcolonialistically as fulfilling a White Guilt fantasy... so I'm not surprised that it did leave some people cold, but I'd say if it did then maybe you think too much.
NYC - East Village: McSorley's Old Ale House
McSorley's Old Ale House stakes a disputed claim to the title of oldest bar in New york City, maintaining that it first opens its doors in 1854. A historical document from 1904, in founder John McSorely's hand, though, declares it was established in 1862. Old insurance maps, census data and tax assessment records concur. All of these dates date should be good enough to best Pete's Tavern (1864), but other documentation places it out of the running. A New York Tribune article from 1895 states it "has stood for 40 years", which would make it one year Pete's junior. McSorley's was one of the last "Men Only" pubs in New York, keeping its door closed to women until 1970 when the National Organization for Women, behind attorneys Faith Seidenberg and Karen DeCroew, took their case to District Court and won (Seidenberg V. McSorley's Old Ale House). It still took another sixteen years until a ladies room was installed, displacing the galley. Don't ask for a Bud or Miller or Samuel Adams at McSorley's. They serve only two ales--light and dark, served in tandem half pint glass. Not a piece of the aged artwork, memorabilia or old newspaper articles covering the walls has been removed since 1910. Above the bar, wishbones gather many generations worth of dust from their perch on the old gas lamp. Look closely and you'll spot an original wanted poster for Abe Lincoln's assassin as well as Babe Ruth's farewell photo from Yankee stadium (a donation from the photographer-a regular himself). There are no stools, which means you have to stand up at the bar...if you're lucky enough next to the pair of Houdini's handcuffs linked to the rail. The original taps are still on display, if no longer in use. A dust-covered set of turkey wishbones hang from the light fixture--a tradition dating back to World War I when soliders going off to war hung them there. Those that returned came back to claim their wish. Your money won't find it's way into a cash register--there has never been one. Back in the old days, they relied on four soup bowls for change--one for pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters. The legendary backroom--where the ale flowed during prohibition, is adorned with a fireplace and the infamous portrait of a nude with her parrot. A coal burning stove has been a fixture for as long as McSorley's has been in business, providing warmth for patrons on cold winter days. The bathroom doors are made of transparent glass. The floor is covered with sawdust and the waiters and bartenders, authentic Irish. In his 1923 poem "I was sitting in mcsorley's," poet E. E. Cummings described McSorley's as "the ale which never lets you grow old." McSorley's has seen its share of famous patrons, from Teddy Roosevelt to Boss Tweed. The bar claims Abraham Lincoln stopped in when he gave a speech at nearby Cooper Union in 1860, which depending on the opening date can surely be questioned. Two of McSorley's most famous mottos include "Be Good or Be Gone", and "We were here before you were born". Prior to 1970, the motto was "Good Ale, Raw Onions and No Ladies." The raw onions can still be had as part of the famous McSorley's cheese platter. The prime condiment is some extremely spicy hot mustard found on each table in a beer mug.
