Synecdoche, New York

I know, I know, here I am buried in work and forgetting to tell you what you're all gagging to hear - what I think of Charlie Kaufman's Synecdoche, New York. There are two ways of doing this: the long way and the short way. The long way involves thousands of words on contingency, control, disease, unease, death, the usual really. I'll go the short way - frigging wonderful. Now leave me alone.

  1. I just want to know how to pronounce 'Synecdoche'.

  2. Sounds like a load of pretentious rubbish to me. Does Private Eye still publish its Pseud's Corner, by the way?

  3. It does, Circus, I use to appear in there nearly every issue. But, sadly, my pretentiousness now seems to be overlooked.

  4. Thanks Bryan, but within minutes of my asking the question, Dave Lull had sent me an actual audio link. The man is a some sort of internet angel.
