Imitation-Game

BOY CULTURE RATING: *** out of ****

Though it's long overdue, Alan Turing (1912—1954)—the genius who led a group that cracked the code of the Nazis' Enigma machine and helped win WWII for the Allies—is being toasted as a hero. CumberbatchThe father of the modern computer received a posthumous pardon in 2013 and is the subject of a major motion picture, The Imitation Game, which documents his unique mind and the mistreatment (he was prosecuted for being gay and chemically castrated) that led to his suicide at age 41.

The film is a respectful, if simplified, treatment of Turing's life, which was also the subject of a 2012 documentary called Codebreaker. In it, Benedict Cumberbatch turns in a beautifully modulated performance as the socially stunted Turing, with Keira Knightley as Joan Clarke, an adventurous woman whose mind Turing respected even though his sexual orientation precluded the romance she desired. They nearly married, Turing was so fond of her—but he cared too deeply for her to allow her to enter into a sexless union.

Autograph-Oprah-Winfrey

When I was working for a literary agent, my boss was the coolest chick ever, a female power bottom who was channeling all of her sexual energy into making me organize the files.

But she had a wicked sense of humor, too, and we made a dangerous amount of mischief, sometimes in the mail. When Oprah Winfrey lost every ounce of fat from her body (remember how stick-think she was?), Sandra thought it would be hilarious to write her and ask for her fat clothes.

The above letter is the actual response we received...we were not the only panhandling fatties!
