[personal profile] lolotehe * is to blame for this, because she reminded me of my all-time favorite kid's movie.  If you are familiar with it, it should explain a lot about me that you will now be content to nod and smile and back slowly away from.

If we had an elevator, I'd say this is what going to work is like.  Don't ask me to explain the jogging skeleton (it's not in the movie, obv):

After seeing this movie, could there have ever been any doubt that I would end up in musical theatre?


This Magnum AWESOME features "Fantastic sets, screenplay, and even song lyrics provided by" DR. MUTHA-FUCKIN' SEUSS, BEEYOTCH

Bart has only one enemy in the world: his piano teacher Dr. Terwilliker. Dr. T has a mad plan to force 500 young boys to practice at his magnificent piano 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Bart is the only hope to save these boys from being enslaved. [...] Features the only piano academy ever known to be equipped with cells and surrounded by an electric fence.

Also features one of the earliest single mothers in 50s movies, and portrays a simpler, happier time when self-employed plumbers could hang around and play make-believe with unattended little boys and no one would think twice about it.

And As the Prophecies Foretold:

I became a Theatre Geek.



The Aristocrats!

* It was the metronomes. I DID IT FOR THE METRONOMES.

Addendum to previous:

The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T  is Stanley Kramer's one dying shame.

No, really.

My ex took a workshop with him, and in conversation later, Stewart brought it up as one of his happiest childhood memories -

Mr. Kramer's response:

"Oh.  Yes.  That."

No more was said.

Which is one of the saddest things ever, because - I mean - there's a Hypnotic Duel for christ's sake - WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE?!?!

Editorial note here rather than in the actual post, because whenever I change anything with multiple embedded videos, it completely fucks up the links and I haven't figured out how NOT to make that happen.  GAH

Final moment of the evening - I give you -

The Dungeon for Scratchy Violins, Screechy Piccolos, Nauseating Trumpets, et cetera, et cetera

And if there was any doubt of the hand of Seuss, notice the increasing insanity of the instruments.

Sweet Dreams.

You're Welcome.

As long as something like this exists, humanity may be spared.  For one more day, anyway.


NOTE:  Take it from me - it's cute while they're young, but if you don't want arms that look like you've plunged them in blackberry bushes up to the elbow, you'll stop that shit right quick.

It's so damn cute, though...
