Amber & Great Explanations

I recently (as in, last night) finished watching a really wonderful adaptation of Pride and Prejudice (sans zombies) from the BBC in 1980.

(Costume dramas from the BBC are the perfect things for weekends with horrible headaches.  Except, often, Mrs. Bennet's voice is not helpful. But regency bustlines sure are.)

While watching, I had an epiphany suitable for a freshman class of 2014 English thesis: Mr. Darcy has Asperger's.  No seriously.  Watch him in this clip.

Take that for a modern updating, zombies.  It really explains his behavior entirely.

Well, both Kate Bush and Marc Bolan were young pretty English girls with curly hair. Who knows what criteria Genius uses?
