proper n. An excellent television series adapted from the works of canadian novelist Lucy Maud Montgomery (of Anne of Green Gables fame). Expertly produced by Kevin Sullivan, Avonlea follows the lives of turn-of-the-century famillies living on beautiful Prince Edward Island, or PEI.

The series stands out for its beautiful scenery and sets, authentic costumes, well-devised plotlines, excellent acting and evocative themes. The overall quality of the production brings to mind Merchant/Ivory costume dramas.

Most Americans familliar with the series watched it on The Disney Channel, which used to carry it weekly. It should also be noted that this is the show on which actress Sarah Polley (Dawn of the Dead remake, Go!) played her first important role, as the impetuous Sarah Stanley.

Unfortunately, this beautiful drama has faded into obsqureity, now remembered only by die-hard Green Gables fans.
Avonlea was probably the best period drama ever produced, rivaling even Little House on The Prarie, and I hereby record its greatness for posterity's sake.

Located in Central Florida. A tiny, belagured collection of trailer parks, scrapyards, hadji marts and various bits of rusted metal loosely organized into something that's supposed to resemble a town.

When driving from Whorelando, Bithlo is the shitty redneck hamlet one passes right before they enter another shitty redneck town called Christmas.

Hence, Bithlo is sometimes called "The Nightmare Before Christmas".
On my way to Whorelando, I stopped by the CircleK in Bithlo, where I was harassed for sex by a toothless, shirtless redneck.

Kind of like being punk'd, only by a bunch of humorless rich white old guys with some kind of sinister geopolitical master plan.

Term reffers to the Machiavellian bait-and-switch game played by the Bush neocons whereby the 9/11 attacks were linked to Iraq.

The term 'Pearl Harbored' itself alludes to a comment made by the neocon think-tank PNAC in their manifesto 'Rebuilding America's Defenses', which suggests that nothing less than "A new Pearl Harbor" would be nessecary to garner support for any further actions in Iraq.

This was written well before the tragic events of 9/11.

Author's note: I'm not accusing the Bush administration of actually carrying out 9/11 to establish a pretext for war that the public would support. I merely think this is a very chilling coincidence.
"The PNAC website should be required reading for all Americans who supported the war, so they can learn how they got totally Pearl Harbored"

"Duuude, you still think things are going great in Iraq?
You got totally Pearl Harbored by those PNAC fuckers"
