Sorry about all the pictures lately. I'll actually write something new shortly.

Holy crap! I have an affinity with that cat too! Thought I was the only one.

Greg said...

Too bad you couldn't find a picture of the cat without that guy in it.

Greg, this comment thread is intended to be used to discuss the films of Jean-Pierre Melville, and/or to praise me.

Please follow these rules in the future.

Greg said...

Jean-Pierre Melville? What an adorable name for a cat! Is the bald guy his owner?

Greg said...

And wait a minute, did you say films? Are they on YouTube? Is it things like Jean-Pierre accidentally falling off the counter or getting himself caught in a paper bag? Ha! I can just see it now. That scamp!

bill r. said...

No, you ass! The films show him caught in a soda box!

Greg said...

That's Jean-Pierre?! I love that one!

Ryan Kelly said...

I CAN HAZ MELVILLE LOL!!

Ryan Kelly said...

But seriously, great timing, as I've been getting into Melville's films as of late.

Greg said...

What, the soda box ones?

Ryan Kelly said...

Personally, I think the one where Jean-Pierre chases the light of a laser pointer is an underrated masterpiece.

Greg said...

Oh that Jean-Pierre, you can always count on him to be a total goof! I could watch the laser pointer one again and again.

Fox said...

I think you should have an affinity for infinity, one day.

Greg said...

Is Infinity a cat too? What movies is he/she in? I love the one where the cat tries to jump over the toilet and falls in. Ha ha ha! Is that Infinity or Jean-Pierre?

Fox said...

Greg-

Yes, Infinity is the cat that jumps out of Zardoz's mouth at the beginning of that film... remember? Sometimes people just see all of those guns, but there's a cat in their too.

I also think Infinity would make a good stripper name. Probably already is one.

bill r. said...

Word verification: bungs.

Fox said...

Whoa... Bill just did a "Word Ver" without even posting any other type of comment.

That's probably a landmark event right there.

Greg said...

Well, when "bungs" is the word no other comment is necessary.

Anyway, I'm going to totally check for Infinity next time I watch Zardoz.

Bill, you should definitely do more cat affinity posts. This was a really good one. Thanks for going outside the usual framework for this choice. Seriously though, next time try and get a pic without the owner.

Fox said...

I agree with Greg that you should express more affinity for pussy on this site.

Ryan Kelly said...

I agree, it's like "Here's this cute cat with a funny French name and... some bald guy with a bow-tie".

Ryan Kelly said...

Fox, of course Bill loves pussy cats! What do you take him for, a man with a heart of stone?

It should go without saying.

Greg said...

Totally. To paraphrase Fox and Ryan, less bald guy, more pussy.

Fox said...

Is someone gonna pick up Greg's "bald" comment and run with it, or what?? Personally, I just couldn't do that to Bill's blog.

Greg said...

Little bald guy. Whatever could you be referring to?

Fox said...

I was leaning towards some kind of joke about hairless (ie "shaved") cats.

Ryan Kelly said...

But what could anyone find funny about a shaved cat? It's not funny, it's sad.
