Mind you, the laptop is churning on a background task. I should probably set up a server farm or other parallel processing approach for that project, actually. Hmm. Anyway...

I keep telling people about Zardoz. I fear it's entering myth - *or is it satire?!*

It wasn't *intended* as satire.

No no - I'm trying to quote the opening monologue from the first drifting head. Not Zardoz himself, but one of the future guys, who tries to introduce the story. He says something like "this story is a dream and satire".

Can't check right now - in public place.

"I am Arthur Frayn, and I am Zardoz. I have lived three hundred years, and I long to die. But death is no longer possible. I am immortal. I present now my story, full of mystery and intrigue - rich in irony, and most satirical. It is set deep in a possible future, so none of these events have yet occurred, but they *may.* Be warned, lest you end as I. In this tale, I am a fake god by occupation - and a magician, by inclination. Merlin is *my* hero! I am the puppet master. I manipulate many of the characters and events you will see. But *I* am invented, too, for your entertainment - and amusement. And you, poor creatures, who conjured *you* out of the clay? Is God in show business too?"

(assuming http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0070948/quotes?qt=qt0537917 is right)

As Omar Little says elsewhere, "Oh, in*deed*."
