Meme of Four, As Seen Everywhere

We at Ionarts sometimes are not sure that what we are running here is a blog. As a result, memes are not part of our day-to-day content, but what the hell, here it goes, as suggested by OGIC at About Last Night, the Meme of Four.

AAAArrgghhh... Is this IonArts' counterpart to the news industry's 'Summer Hole'? I don't know about others, but 'not being a blog' is the (usual) attraction of IonArts. Quite frankly, I don't care what jobs Charles T. Downey had, where jfl has lunch, which soap Mark likes to lather up with. Stick to the good work, don't get soft and boring, please! The Fan base is concerned!

empire strikes back??!?! the exorcist?!?!?! you have hidden these tastes pretty well to-date!

Worry not, dear fan base, this is only a temporary diversion. As Gawain notes, Ionarts sticks pretty consistently to its high-cultural subject matter. That's what interests us and, so it appears, most of you.
