Still Playing

I put the Clockwork Orange soundtrack on after 2001's. Wow, is that music annoying when listened to outside of the movie. The pieces that are interesting are the snippets of Beethoven's Ninth, and let's be honest, the Ninth would sound good played by my dog on a toy fiddle.

Oh, that song 'I Want to Marry a Lighthouse Keeper' by Erika Eigen is pretty good. I don't remember actually hearing it during the movie but it would be a good song to put into a band's set list as one of those cute old songs that somehow are more fun to listen to than anything the band has actually written. I'd love it if you'd polish my lamp by the light of day Erika.

Next up on 'Great Things Taken Out of Context' I'll read Dostoevsky to a starving man and paint my kitchen with scenes from 'Antigone'.

Until then, watch this amusing new anti-drug PSA.

Try the Barry Lyndon soundtrack next.

I actually thought Keith and Hunter seemed encouragingly functional in that clip. The highlight was probably Keith suggesting that J. Edgar Hoover be reincarnated as a fart. I also liked the use of the Braves jersey as a performing outfit.
