    Perhaps our eyes are merely a blank film which is taken from us after our deaths to be developed elsewhere and screened as our life story in some infernal cinema or despatched as microfilm into the sidereal void.

    Break up the printing presses and you break up rebellion.
    Dudley Nichols, U.S. screenwriter. Jean Renoir. Mayor (Thurston Hall)

    Laughter on American television has taken the place of the chorus in Greek tragedy.... In other countries, the business of laughing is left to the viewers. Here, their laughter is put on the screen, integrated into the show. It is the screen that is laughing and having a good time. You are simply left alone with your consternation.
    —Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)
