The Picture of Dorian Gray: Thriller Video

Dorian Gray is the subject of a full-length portrait in oil by Basil Hallward, an artist who is impressed and infatuated by Dorian's beauty; he believes that Dorian’s beauty is responsible for the new mode in his art as a painter. Through Basil, Dorian meets Lord Henry Wotton, and he soon is enthralled by the aristocrat's hedonistic worldview: that beauty and sensual fulfilment are the only things worth pursuing in life. Understanding that his beauty will fade, Dorian expresses the desire to sell his soul, to ensure that the picture, rather than he, will age and fade. The wish is granted, and Dorian pursues a libertine life of varied and amoral experiences; all the while his portrait ages and records every soul-corrupting sin. That's what happens in The Picture of Dorian Gray. In The Picture of Jonas Gray, a plodding running back who barely possesses enough talent to make his football team as the season begins rushes for 201 yards and four touchdowns during the only game he will ever play significantly in, whilst beating my fantasy football team The Dirty Tricks Squad, with the help of Coby Fleener, who also sucks except for this one time. I haven't watched this movie, or read the book, but I do own the beta version of the Thriller Video. I picked up Latavius Murray in most of my fantasy football leagues this week, then did some squinting when I realized he plays against five top ten run defenses to finish the season. Therefore I just stashed him on my bench, but tonight he is a star, running for two touchdowns already in the first half. Next week, when I put him in, he'll suck again. Anyway, Thriller Video, Dorian Gray, Jonas Gray, George Bernard Wilde, whatever. This is still new in the box, and will remain such as I never intend to open it.
