The movie V for Vendetta is part of this legacy

Comment by Stephen on November 5, 2019 at 8:01pm

It never ever occurred to us when we celebrated the 5th of November Or Guy Fawkes night that it was in any way anti-Catholic, but of course, it must have been so at one point? 

English Folk Verse (c.1870)
The Fifth of November

Remember, remember!
The fifth of November,
The Gunpowder treason and plot;
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!
Guy Fawkes and his companions
Did the scheme contrive,
To blow the King and Parliament
All up alive.
Threescore barrels, laid below,
To prove old England's overthrow.
But, by God's providence, him they catch,
With a dark lantern, lighting a match!
A stick and a stake
For King James's sake!
If you won't give me one,
I'll take two,
The better for me,
And the worse for you.
A rope, a rope, to hang the Pope,
A penn'orth of cheese to choke him,
A pint of beer to wash it down,
And a jolly good fire to burn him.
Holloa, boys! holloa, boys! make the bells ring!
Holloa, boys! holloa boys! God save the King!
Hip, hip, hooor-r-r-ray!

Interesting post of Guy FawkesImage result for guy fawkes"

How did the image of Guy Fawkes change from a terrorist into an icon of the protest movements around the world?

The Misunderstood Legacy of Guy Fawkes
“Remember, remember the fifth of November,” the old British rhyme goes.
For more than 400 years, Britain has remembered. Every year, on this day, fireworks are set off, bonfires are built, and effigies are burned to commemorate the failed 17th-century plot by a group of English Catholics to blow up the Houses of Parliament—with the country’s entire political establishment and reigning Protestant monarch, King James I, inside.
But for an event rooted in remembrance, what has come to be known here in Britain as Guy Fawkes Night (named after one of the key plotters) could not be further removed from it. Today, the annual ritual is more festive and fun than religious and monarchical. Even Fawkes himself has taken on new meaning, becoming best known around the world not as a would-be religious extremist and terrorist, but as a populist hero. His life has been romanticized in film, his likeness has been preserved in masks, and his legacy has morphed into an almost mythical tale of anti-government rebellion, anarchy, and subversion.https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/uknews/the-misunderstood-legacy-of-g...

Hand made models are better the CGI if they are are done well.

Comment by Mrs.B on November 3, 2019 at 7:54pm

They all look good.

Comment by Stephen on November 3, 2019 at 7:52pm

Marvellous hand-made models of Ancient Rome. Nowadays one would use CGI but I'm not sure which I prefer?

Interesting Quora post on American English

https://www.quora.com/Which-American-dialect-from-colonial-times-is...

The main dialect areas of the US can be traced to the four main migrations of English speaking people to America from the British Isles during the colonial period (1607-1775). One of the main researchers of areal dialects of the United States was Hans Kurath, author of the Dialect Atlas of America. He found that there are four main dialect areas in the Eastern US: New England (including New York), Middle Atlantic, Backwoods, and Southern Tidewater. The main dialectal divisions can further be subdivided into at least 27 sub-dialects. The original eastern dialects tended to become more leveled and to merge farther west.

Would like to see that.
