The Electric Company video I originally wanted to show isn’t available, so the next option was playing this other video from the program. Rita Moreno’s in it with Morgan Freeman. Here Rita Moreno does one of her looney bin performances that I love. They’d have made a nice couple. Morgan Freeman wasn’t Morgan Freeman yet in this.
This show’s older than this artist I talked to today. I have clothes older than this artist. I think I could develop a crush on him but he’s young enough to be my son, which leads me to tell you of my first plan.
The Electric Company had a Punctuation Song. In high school I made up lyrics to that melody about masturbation. I was going to post my lyrics under a video of the Punctuation Song, but couldn’t find it and found the Rita Moreno one instead. Also I realized that the lyrics to my masturbation song might be too nasty, slutty, hoey, skanky. Btw I love the relationship that I’m having with myself lately. Yeah, this guy took me there — a little — he had more elements of an intellectual but see that turns me on. I suppose that’s how I wound up thinking of the masturbation song.
Here’s this other video that’s cute as hell. MF’s all wiry and RM’s such a pistol:
On face book, a friend mentioned watching Death Proof. This made me think of April March’s song Chick Habit, which was featured in the movie. In error I referred to the song as Chick Magnet when I commented that I loved the movie. It has one of the sexiest car crash scenes ever!
This song makes you want to wear leather, chew gum, spit it out, drink tequila, flirt with boys then dramatically squash your cigarette out with your boot. Oh, and the song comes in French too!
This video below is from the bizarre movie Wicker Man (1973). A man investigates the cult murder sacrifice of a girl on a pagan island in Scotland. (Nick Cage did the laughable remake.) Britt Ekland tries to seduce the investigator through the walls of the inn. He’s a virgin. He’s tortured as she calls out to him and bangs on the walls. Youtube doesn’t allow the complete video because of Britt Ekland’s titties and ass, so maybe you’ll rent the movie if you want to see those, and you do. This movie is brilliant. It transports you very effectively to another planet where the laws of gravity are different – here’s a place where you’ll be completely ungrounded. Britt Ekland’s song is bizarre because it comes out of nowhere. It’s haunting, lovely and disorienting. I swear I’m going to sing this karaoke one day. I think of her as a witch in this scene.
The second video from the movie is a very short lullaby. The women in this scene are so strangely disconnected that they stroke and groom their victim, who is about to be killed, as if he would be soothed by it. With the lullaby playing, the scene reaches your gut. The ‘comforting’ of the women and the song make you think of being a child in your mother’s loving arms, yet you’re being prepared for a fiery death. You wonder for a second if perhaps this is a good thing, to die by fire, then you shit your pants.
