The Sound of Barry White
Never having seen the story of the Trapp family in its entirety, I was shocked to discover that its wholesomeness is cut, not only by the brownshirts that start appearing towards the end, but by some serious sexual tension. Maybe it's because Skylar has insisted on hearing the Camelot soundtrack's "The Lusty Month of May" over and over during the past week, but I found myself repeatedly musing on the virtues of Julie Andrews's neck, be that train of thought proper or im.

Julie Andrews is a surprisingly sexy and foul-mouthed lady.

Indeed. Her foul mouth comes with perfect white teeth, too!

Well, the story is certainly not entirely wholesome, right? A family forced to flee their country so as not to participate in genocide is hardly singing birds and flowers.

Also, Maria Von Trapp didn't like the movie. Maybe she thought she was portrayed too lustily.

That could well be. I read the book a long time ago. I think I prefer the movie, as entertainment.

I never read the book. Maybe I should. I like the movie.

It's really interesting, as I remember. But less ebullient.

nice seeing you!

i really shouldn't have gone, though, because i must have dozed off for about 1/3 of the movie, having been awake since 5am and having had a very busy day on very little sleep the night before.

It was nice seeing you too! I can see how a three-hour film might inspire slumber after two days like that, though I thought it moved faster than most pictures of that length.

i hadn't seen it in seriously forever, and had never seen it all the way through. (i guess for the sleeping, i still haven't.)

last night i only got 4 hours of sleep. today at work i felt as if i would fall asleep standing up, and i had coffee this morning, too. hurray for my day off tomorrow!!

Days off are nice. I just wish I didn't get so anxious when I'm not doing anything!

on my days off, i usually end up lying around watching tv and sleeping and eating too much. it really makes me feel like a bum, and feel like i'd rather be working because at least then i'd be earning money, but days off are a necessity so i'm not completely burnt out on work.

The Im- of the Perverse

You may recall that not so many years later Blake Edwards, Andrews's husband, made the "latent" sexual tension manifest in the god-awful S.O.B., in which he has wholesome Andrews bare her chest in order to pastiche Hollywood chest-baring run amok. The joke was on him (and her!), however, sealing his fate, in my opinion, as one of the least-talented directors of his era. I've still never sat through The Mound of Music (not, of course, directed by him). I think of it as one of the few pieces of karma I've accrued.

How comes the new blog?

Re: The Im- of the Perverse

Yes, I'll take the latent over the manifest any day! New blog is slowly progressing from an idea to a concrete plan. I just have to figure out how I want to present it. I'll drop you a line as soon as I start.
