I'll forgo the "this has been coming" talk, because we all know experts have been saying it for years. The point is, I know I don't really know many of you out there, but I'm happy to say that I've thought about it, and it doesn't really matter whether I know you or not. If there's a silver lining in any of this, it's that an implacable foe like COVID-19 makes all the other niggling problems seem a little less niggling. Good luck everybody.

So yeah, just finished watching Primal, by Genndy Tartokovsky, alternately that guy whose name I could never pronounce when I was younger, and I have to say that I am simultaneously delighted, and disappointed. Cover delighted by basically the first 98% of the entire show. I don't think that there was one thing in that show that I could find any objective fault with before the very end. The show garnered some attention and praise for its signature use of storytelling without any form of speech, and the familiar Tartokovsky use of slow movements during action scenes. The relationship between Spear (the human) and Fang (the dinosaur) is a fami

So before I begin, no, this won't be a review of the movie in general, just basically me enumerating my surprise at how good it was in its overall message. Don't get me wrong, I loved the first one. One of my favourite Disney movies of all time. But as I've grown older I've found myself becoming ever warier of sequels to anything. That being said, spoilers ahead. Whilst the first movie fixated on the struggle to break out of assigned roles, with a clear villain with a clear motive, the second movie doesn't follow this mold, and I'm thrilled that it didn't. There's no villain to really speak of in the context of an ultimate antagonist direct

At the Battle of Issus (333 BC), Darius' army was routed and the Persian king fled the field, leaving his extended family, including his mother, his wife Stateira I, his children, and many others to the mercy of Alexander. Alexander captured them but treated them with all dignity, where many a lesser conqueror would have executed them out of hand. When Alexander the Great and Hephaestion (his closest friend) went together to visit the captured Persian royal family, Sisygambis knelt to Hephaestion to plead for their lives, mistaking him for Alexander — Hephaestion was the taller, and both young men were similarly dressed. When she realized her mistake, she was acutely embarrassed, but Alexander reassured her with the words, "You were not mistaken, Mother; this man too is Alexander."

At the Battle of Gaugamela, Sisygambis and her family were kept within the baggage train behind Alexander's army. When the Persian army's Scythian cavalry broke through Alexander's forces to reach them, she allegedly refused to celebrate what appeared at first to be Persian victory.


Quintus Curtius Rufus informs that Sisygambis could never forgive her son Darius for abandoning his family at Issus. After Darius was killed shortly following his defeat at Gaugamela, Alexander sent his body to her for burial. Called upon to mourn his death, she was reported to have said, I have only one son [Alexander] and he is king of all Persia.

And speaking alexander the great REAL mother, well let just say she one nasty woman.

She came to a sad end though, and arguably both her and Alex's father were equally... troubling. Their mutual loathing for each other became legendary.

thanks for the fav

No problem. It's a wonderful picture of a wonderful show.
