Dear Customer,

We've noticed that customers who have expressed interest in Wagner: Die Walkure (Jones/Altmeyer/Schwarz/Bay/Boulez) have also ordered Otomo on DVD. For this reason, you might like to know that Otomo will be released on November 28, 2006 on DVD. You can pre-order your copy at a savings of 30% by following the link below.

Frieder Schlaich directs this horrific look at racism in modern Germany. Loosely based on a real-life incident that scandalized Stuttgart in 1989, the film recounts the final day of a Liberian political refugee. Otomo (Isaach de Bankole) cannot find even the most modest of jobs because of his race. Everyone from his fellow boarding house patrons to his fellow churchgoers treat him with contempt and disdain. His long-simmering rage boils over when he finds himself involved in a scuffle with a racist subway ticket collector. Otomo flees the scene after slightly injuring the man, leaving his identification papers behind in the process. Soon ultra-ambitious cop Heinz is hot on his trail, hoping to boost his career by nailing a "dangerous fugitive." ~ Jonathan Crow, All Movie Guide

Make a list of all the characters in your icons. Alphabetize them. Pair them up as you go. Those will be your pairings. I'm leaving my pets and dad out of it. Some of these are so wrong. And some are so right!

The Reverend Thomas Bayes and Isobel Bayrakdarian. Should produce some improbable high notes.

George W. Bush and The Cat from Red Dwarf. Typical of the Cat to team up with the only life form in the Universe more stupid.

Death and Keir Hardie. Um.

Jim Laker and Joseph Ratzinger. I guess right now either would be an improvement to the England team.

Robespierre and Salome. Both noted for their severance packages.

Margaret Thatcher and Theseus. I see an island holiday for Mrs T any day now.

Kenneth Widmerpool and Zoot. Sorry, my eyeballs are contra-rotating.
