Meanwhile, poor Mr. McAvoy is blissfully unaware that we've apparently decided his fate for him as well. :P :wink:

Yes, with all *four* of our names on it ;) hehe, just kidding--I know there have got to be a lot more Keats fans out there than just the regulars who haunt this board! Cool idea, Saturn. You know, I actually put a petition together once back in 7th grade to try and get an old cartoon I used to watch back on the air--the cartoon was a 1970's anime called Star Blazers and I was able to find at least 100 kids at my school who remembered the cartoon and actually liked it enough to sign the petition :) Anything's possible! (Although, in my case, the cartoon did not get put back on the air but I got a nice letter from the tv station that used to air it telling me who owned the rights. . .) OK, I'm totally getting off-subject, aren't I? Please forgive me, I'm writing a paper and I'm reaaally ready to be done with it.

I've just finished a letter stating our case to Andrew Motion (he was the next best thing to Jane Campion herself--I could not find a contact email for her)...I posted it in the Keats Around the World thread...please tell me what you think, Miss Malia...

I so want us to be heard...

Marilee's website is apparently going to have a place where we can post our thoughts on who should be cast as Keats in the film once the fantabulous redesign is done. . . hopefully sometime soon, as I've been anxious for it ever since I found out it was happening! Check it out here, at the top of the News page:

Don't you hate those days that you really look forward to but when they arrive everything goes wrong, I mean everything that could go wrong does go wrong? :(

The key is to have no expectations. Then you can never be disappointed.

That way lies despair, for me at least.

I have to live in hope, I have to dream or I fall into the pit of hopelessness which is not a vacation you want to go on.

I wish I could be more relaxed and not get my hopes up, but life is so incredibly short and fragile that you never know what's going to happen you have to seize any hope of happiness in your hands and not let go.

It's become a cliché today but carpe diem Credo, carpe diem!!!

Don't be afraid to dream the impossible or to try and find it.

And the day has been redeemed by a late night message!!! :D

As well as carpe diem, Horace also wrote this:

“Avoid speculation
about the future; count as credit the days
chance deals; youth should not spurn
the dance or sweet desire;

this is your green time, not your white
and morose. In field or piazza,
now is the proper season for
for trading soft whispers in the dark;

the tell-tale complaisant laugh...”

I just personally find that the best things in life come when you're not expecting them. It's not a hopeless outlook, it's just a different one. :wink:

Glad your day had its bright moment in the end, Saturn. :D

He is so very pretty.

Has anyone ever seen Shameless? He used to be in that.

I'm sure there is someway we can contact him and force him to play Keats.

Yes, that is actually where I first encountered Mr. McAvoy. I was flipping through channels and stopped on Shameless thinking. . . Who is that guy?! I'm so very happy for him that his career is starting to take off like it has, because he certainly deserves it. His performance as Macbeth in BBC's ShakespeaRe-Told was brilliant as well, if you haven't seen that.

Plus he's Scottish, and Lord knows I love a Scot. :wink:
