Review of Saturday’s Warrior, complete with movie times
Saturday’s Warrior. My mother always thought since my sister was born on a Saturday during a rain storm this was really fitting. Now my sister is 30 years old + it seems a bit odd that Saturday lasted so long. I’m sure in another 20 years this will seem even sillier, and perhaps 20 years after that this movie will go down the memory hole it deserves.
“Who are these children coming down” song. “Trailing clouds of glory” comes from a William Wordsworth poem printed in 1919. William Wordsworth was a contemporary of Joseph Smith, being born 35 years before Joseph, and dying 6 years after. I don’t know if he ever encountered Joseph, or if Joseph read this poem before coming up with the pre-existence, but Wordsworth seems to be talking far more of “Potential” of humans rather than an actual existence before this one, just as the “Jail” in the next few lines doesn’t imply we all go to a literal prison.
Ah well, why write good lyrics when you can steal them, right?
