Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup.
My favorite local cable access music video showcase, Ken Mottet's The Otherside, just showed the video for my gay boyfriend Rufus Wainwright's version of the Beatles' "Across the Universe," which was a byproduct of the horrible movie I Am Sam and which I'd not seen previously. (That was a long sentence!) Aaaaaaaaanyway, it's equally cool (Rufus is sexy and suspended looks as if he's suspended in mid-air) and lame (it "stars" that creepy Village of the Damned-looking Dakota Fanning and uses a variation on that once-cool/now-cheesy Schindler's Listian red-against-a-B&W-backdrop effectnot to mention it's use of the classic '80s "I know! There are paintings on easels in that room, let's frame part of the video inside them!" brilliance). Heh. Another super-long sentence. Aaaaaaaaaanyhow, you can see it for yourselves right here.
