    And Gary Cooper and Patricia Neal star in the movie.
    Just a piece of trivia.

    That's what I thought, especially during "The Prophet Cries."

    What about "The gates of Hell - Abandon hope, all ye who enter here."? Abandon hope, all ye who enter here was the inscription over the doorway to Hell in Dante's "Inferno."

    Which just makes me think even more that Romeo and the guys came up with their own story by putting together a bunch of different pieces of literature and mythology, like with V.

    If you liked that, you'd LOVE "Atlas Shrugged". Not only is it her greatest work and her greatest triumph; but it's the most self-empowering book out there and I feel the same way about it that you feel about Fountainhead.....tenfold.

    Absolutely. "Fountainhead" has been a life-changing experience to many people since its release (~1946?), and her Magnum Opus "Atlas Shrugged" was doubly so. Incredible pieces of litterature artistically, aesthetically, and philosophically.

    Oh yeah. She was ahead of her time(like Orwell) and much of that stuff in those books is even more relevant today. You should check out the documentary on her: Ayn Rand- A Sense Of Life. There's just something really heartwarming at seeing Phil Donahue stammer and gush his frustration on a very calm and collected Ayn Rand. T'was very wonderful to watch.

    The lyrics of TDWOT are based on Dantes "Divine Comedy" and the legend of Archangel Gabriel

    Musically in this song SymphonyX use themes of Bach and Holst

    Nice.

    I just listened to the Ritterballet(WoO 1) with Von Karajan at the helm.
