The Princess Bride is one of those moves that – if you ever suddenly find yourself watching Monty Python or Hitchiker’s Guide to the Galaxy or … get involved in Linux… or learn programming… or start playing RPGs… or get involved in Medieval Re-enactment (or cosPlay in general) or have ever seen all Star Wars movies…. or Star Trek… or decide to tackle programming… you *will* see this movie someday.
It’s all part of the same… *something* – I dunno what… subculture? I dunno. Just things I notice in common through the generations. Same interests.. same movies… same cultural references… and yeah, oddly enough it’s one of the groups that I’m sort of in. I don’t know the same of it but I know I’m in it somehow.
