I just bought two DVD versions of Britten's "Turn of the Screw" on amazon. I figure it's justifiable because the chances of me ever actually getting to see it in person are about nil, unless i go to Germany. They seem awfully fond of the opera over there. But I've also seen the words "eurotrashing" and "Germany productions" in close proximity to one another in various online reviews, so I don't know if I'd even enjoy it.

And the local opera company did TOTS back in 1999, when I didn't care. So they probably won't be doing it again anytime soon.


But. Two highly-rated DVDs on the way. Huzzah!

In other news, I officially have more music than I have time to listen to. I think as soon as the fam goes off to church, I'll pop in something I haven't listened to, yet. Maybe some Ralph Vaughan Williams.

Someday I will post about exciting real life happenings. But I don't want to jinx it, so I won't. Yet.

For now, have a meme I yoinked from [ profile] shannonsequitur:

Reply to this post, and I will tell you my favorite icon of yours. Then post this to your own journal using your own favorite icon.

I have trouble picking a favorite icon... but here's my most recent one, which I shamelessly stole. Look at the Doctor go!

Also, so you don't get bored, here is some more random stuff... call it a Youtubepalooza:

Via [ profile] endril_lei: Complaint Choirs might just be the best thing ever. I particularly enjoy the Helsinki one, which I will include here for your viewing pleasure:


Also also, courtesy of PWOT's Mirth Canal: The Wicker Man in Two Minutes. I never saw this film, and now I don't have to. "NO! NOT THE BEES!!"

And finally, One man's rant about how Pachabel's Canon in D will haunt him for the rest of his life.

Enjoy, my lovelies.
