>Ni! Ni! Ni! at K’zoo

Hey fellow pilgrims to K’zoo, have you noticed that this gentleman is presenting at session 469 (1:30 Saturday)? Don’t recognize him? Go look at Session 469 here. (The curly hair in his face is mine, btw, in a trimmer state than it is now. How I got in the picture is a whole nuther story. It’s what lead up to the the one that involves the orangutan.)

  1. >I have to confess that I’ll believe it when I see it, because I think I’ve been at 2 conferences now where he was supposed to present and he didn’t show. Not that it wouldn’t be fun to see him, though! (We’re watching his Crusades series in my class. It goes downhill VERY badly, but is an interesting viewing nonetheless.)

  2. >AMEN! There’s enough gravitas at the Medieval Academy Conference – K’zoo is all about fun medieval-love. And that’s a fantastic picture of Terry Gilliam (I love the Holy Grail) – I especially like how he’s peeking out from behind your hair. Jealous!

  3. >HeoCwaeth, you can have my curly hair. I always wanted shiny, straight hair, of course. And no, it’s not weird that he looks like your uncle. He’s very avuncular. :)Medieval Woman — you’re confusing your Terry’s! It’s the *other* Terry. But you probably knew that and just typed Gilliam. But yeah, you’re right — MAA is for the gravitas, K’zoo is for the fun. But I should say, too, that if Terry *does* show up, it’ll be as a Chaucer scholar, not as a Python. But then Chaucer would’ve liked the Pythons.

  4. >Actually, I did think it was Terry Gilliam (what’s the other Terry again?) – although I did know that he was an Oxford(?)-trained medievalist. Yet another reason to be medievalist…

  5. >I followed you here from Michael Berube’s blog & just have to say, enjoy Kalamazoo; I grew up there. Bell’s brewery downtown is the best beer in town — some people say it’s the best anywhere — Michigan’s oldest brew pub.

  6. >As for gravitas, let me say this in defense of Terry Jones — his book, Chaucer’s Knight, was pretty good (in the scholarly sense). It’s conclusion that Chaucer’s depiction of the Knight was meant to be an ironic critique of free companies is totally wrong, I think, but he certainly produces a strong argument.I’ve never heard him speak, but given the rhetoric of his book I would expect his presentation to be primarily serious and scholarly in nature.
