Dear fellows,

I'm very touched by your kindness and friendship. I should say that I am the one who's honored to be here with you.  Let's hope that we could be in touch for a long while.

Another LJ user, my very dear empousa, sent me a bunch of vintage images depicting the Little Man and some of his marshalls and soldiers performing acts of lust and great debauchery. They're an exquisite piece of shameless mockery. I also found some caricatures of Napoleon I that I'd like to share. Just tell me what to do.

Good day!

French article [Jun. 20th, 2006|07:18 am]
All hail the glorious dead.

You know guys that I have a deep crush on Desaix. There are some articles I have related to  him in some way that also point the situation (of the time he lived) very well. Many things have been told about Napoleon's "humanity" and camaraderie, but (despite the fact I still like him somehow) the little guy was nothing but a hypocrit without ethics (like any other tyrant) . But I'm sure you know that. For years I had an almost blind admiration for him... I still do, but now I see, and it hurts.

Anyway, I'll share my papers with you  for I love the way you analize things. The articles can be a little long.

Buenos días ;)


Abstract

Words and Ashes : the Stuff of Heroes at the Birth of the Consulate.
The funeral of Desaix, as that of Lannes, helped bolster up a shaky consular regime, in which Bonaparte required to appear as primus inter pares. He revived a tradition by seeking his legitimacy in laudatory discourse and the acclaim of Chateaubriand, La Harpe, Fontanes. Conferring apotheosis on Desaix, he could rely on the rhetoric of Daunou, Duchesne, Garat, or the paintings of Dutertre and many others, to sing the praise and forge the legend of the glorious deceased, a republican in the antique mould, the philosopher-warrior. The assimilation was taken a step further by prophetically portraying the supreme sacrifice as one made not just for the Republic, but for the sake of Bonaparte himself.

Dear fellows,

Do you read French? There are some very interesting articles on Revolution & Napoleonic Era I'm eager to share with you but (sorry) not written in English. Tell me if I can post them anyway.

Have a great day

You will kindly notice that we have a community icon now.

I saw that in a trailer for "Corpse Bride" and knew immediately what had to be done... and after much searching for high quality video, screen-capping, and photoshopping... it is so.

I will now stand aside and allow all of you to praise my excellence.

To generality, it is with great and belated pleasure that I welcome yon benificent Moderator Brittanic back to this humble community, in all it's woefully neglected glory. PWNGE comes always to the petty.

Blessed be, and back to your regularily scheduled deadness.

Why exactly are we being watched by 7654321b?

Regardless, I am obviously back.

It grieves me to announce that, due to some rather unfortunate and trivial circumstances, yon British Mod has left rather than be barred from livejournal. In part, it is the result of a perverse backlash for her defence of the honour of the dead. Secondly, it is the result of an old and petty grudge on the part of a same-claimer who rather controls a certain... irreverent, to utilize the English talent for understatement, community.

I remove my hat in her honour. She is sorely missed.
