Yowch! I must confess that I was in a bit of a
mischevous mood last night. ;) I hope I wasn't being
too much of a troll or anything!

However I honestly didn't mean to start any
controvesey over whether Kenneth was in Midsummer
Nights Dream. I just said alledgedly kind of out of
habit when reffering to almost anything to do with Mr
Anger really.

I think I've seen the photo from the film myself when
I think about it. Of course I would probably have
trouble recognising any picture of Kenneth when

I mean the film "senators in bondage" is listed on
imdb but I've not been able to find any information
about it at all, even on this list. It just makes me
wonder if some things are just mythical.

So I said alledgedly without really thinking about it.

On another note, of course I'm kind of aware that
people raise Scorpio rising up above his other films
too. In fact it really infuriates me. Still I'm
allowed to have an opinion on what are the more
important works too aren't I! :)

In some ways I was quite restrained really. I mean I
didn't even mention Matthew Barney or anything. ;)
