If I were a Springer-Verlag Graduate Text in Mathematics, I would be W.B.R. Lickorish's An Introduction to Knot Theory.

I am an introduction to mathematical Knot Theory; the theory of knots and links of simple closed curves in three-dimensional space. I consist of a selection of topics which graduate students have found to be a successful introduction to the field. Three distinct techniques are employed; Geometric Topology Manoeuvres, Combinatorics, and Algebraic Topology.

Leave one memory of you and me together. It doesn't matter if I know you a little, a lot, or at all, anything you remember or don't remember! Have fun. Optional meme bit: Next, post this in your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you.

Let's revisit that films of joy post. Like I said, I don't watch a lot of film, which means that I'm likely missing out on many things that I would like if I knew about them. So if you start with Charlie Kaufman, Miyazaki, Svenkmajer, the Marx Brothers, Jeunet and Caro (the five primary sources of joy in my original list), then add in Terry Gilliam (yes, every film including Baron Munchausen) and quirky cult films like Harold and Maude or Being There, plus obvious geek pleasers like LotR and CTHD...where do you, oh great video store master, send me next? Help me, Lazyweb!

This is a funny meme for me, because I rarely consume film. However, I know what I like, and it's this. Since we are restricted to 5, I'm not doubling up on any director/producer/actors, but you can assume an obsessive, completist(*) fondness for films related to these:

1. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
2. Spirited Away
3. The Lion in Winter
4. A Night at the Opera
5. City of Lost Children

EDITED: Sorry Jan, but Peter O'Toole and Katherine Hepburn trump. Conspirators of Pleasure replaced in the three spot.

* and really, with me, could it be any other way?

[livejournal.com profile] rimrunner says: When you see this in a friends journal, quote Shakespeare!

Seems, madam! nay it is; I know not seems.
Tis not alone my inky cloak, good mother,
Nor customary suits of solemn black,
Nor windy suspiration of forced breath,
Nor the dejected 'havior of the visage,
Together with all forms, moods, shapes of grief,
That can denote me truly: these indeed seem,
For they are actions that a man might play:
But I have that within which passeth show;
These but the trappings and the suits of woe.

Well, I wanted to do the chorus to the fourth act of Henry V, but it's been too long. I got lost in between the "like a foul and ugly witch doth limp so tediously away" line and the "little touch of Harry in the night" bit. Have to go read up. I do love that speech so.

1. What's the first word that comes to mind when you think of me?
2. Go to http://images.google.com/ and search for that word.
3. Reply to this post with one of the pictures on the first page of results (don't tell me the word).
4. Put this in your own blog so that I can do the same. (Or not, of course.)
