Hmm. Heidegger was a nazi, and Morlang is definitely an Aryan supporter, but Heidegger was born in Messkirch, which is in western Germany. Morlang is from the southeastern area of Austria.
Schoppenhauer was a massive pessimist, and that’s close to Morlang, but he was as close to a buddhist as anything and buddhism is for the Brown people. Plus he was born in Northern poland. No good.
Wittgenstein was born in Vienna during the Austro Hungarian empire’s decline which does indeed fit the place and timeline I want, but he was Jewish. I’ve never actually pictured Morlang as jewish. I mean, it could work out smashingly, but I want flaw points for the Sabbath. I mean, that’s a big Flaw! And don’t even mention Kosher. Oi wei. Hahaha. It could work.
Morlang von Wittgenstein.
Well, for better or worse I have a unique brand of erudition which induces me to recommend, in your best interest I am certain, that you give grant Morlang a surname that does homage to one of the many great german speaking philosophers.
The only way I could ever keep their names straight was with a little help from Eric Idle.
So, there’s Heidegger was a boozy begger, Schoppenhauer, Wittgenstein was a beery swine who was just as schloshed as Schlegel and there’s nothing Neitzsche. couldn’t Teizsche
So. Anybody got an idea about a last name for Morlang? I chose Von Wolfhausen because of the movie beerfest, and I’m not ashamed of it.
Well, perhaps a little.
