One Trilogy to Rule Them All: “The Matrix is based on the 1968 East German play Wirklichkeit ist eine Illusion, also lassen Sie uns sprechen R?tsel, Eintragfaden-Polizei und Tanzkampf (‘Reality is an Illusion, so Let Us Speak Riddles, Shoot Police and Dancefight’). The original live production ended with a stunning dance sequence (set to Wagner’s Nightsong of the Gun Mechs) which the Wachowski brothers have set side in favor of a silly RoboCopesque sky-shooting fireworks display that resembles an inner-city New Year’s Eve celebration from the year 2214. ”

Also brilliant.

There are few harder things in life than introducing yourself, especially in print where mellifluous nuance can turn to indulgent wankery. So. I am definitely a 'writer'. You could also call me an 'artist'. I could probably put the words 'designer' and 'consultant' here too, but they feel crass.
