MC Creepius

A brief word of explanation.  During a repeat viewing of Gladiator, my wife and I noticed Joaquin Phoenix’s incredibly high “creep factor.”  In the real world, this inherent skeevyness is almost always a liability.  As an actor, it can open the door to a host of juicy roles.  (This is, of course, not a testament to an actor’s true character.  In interviews, Willem Dafoe comes across as affable and charming.  On screen…creepy.)  In a nod to the lingo of the movie, we christened Phoenix as Creepius Maximus.  So that explains the title of this blog entry.  What follows below, I have no explanation for other than to fall back on my old standby:  Rock star trumps everything.
