Moronic Inferno Watch Oh, pity.

Moronic Inferno Watch

Oh, pity. No Hiltonian acrobatics allowed for visionary, pathbreaking, Baudelaireian etc etc "film" students at NYU.

But hey, these days even Grand Ayatollah Sistani is getting into the nitty-gritty re: the relative (non)propriety of various sexual acts.

But doubtless, much like those kill-joy deans at NYU--he'd probably draw the line at allowing the filming of all the fun and games, no?

Still, it appears from his website that no one in his large flock has actually quite come out and asked him yet.

Still, one wonders. Might the precincts of Najaf prove more libertine than the stodgy gaggle of academic scolds hunkered down in the center Village?

What will all the democratization underfoot?

Especially as wise clerics might appreciate how students can get so magically creative when their artistic visions are allowed to bloom unfettered by prudish, censorious hordes:

"Vera Itkin, 20, a sophomore, said that one film in a class contained graphic secondhand footage from a pornographic movie and that two scripts called for hard-core sex scenes, one with dead people.

Lisa Estrin, 19, a sophomore, said she made a film showing simulated sex between two stuffed toys, Minnie Mouse and Lamb Chop.

Ms. Carmicino also has the support of her mother, Theresa Carmicino, a retired social worker in Shelby Township, Mich., near Detroit, who said, "It's not subject matter I probably would like, but I think she had the right to represent herself the way she likes."

More great moments in parenting. Hotelier chain scions everywhere would be proud.

And, of course, this expansive "right to represent" (however banal, scurrilous, fraudulent, or, generally, of zero merit the subject matter being represented) is doubtless what the denizens of Najaf are hungering for too?

Call it democratization L.A. style (you know, kiddie porn for all, if you gotta modem!).
