So Torley Linden’s mind virus from earlier this year has had an effect on yet another evening of mine.
It of course started with a flavorful discussion of how all of our culture is on youtube and quickly degenerated to the Ukulele Orchestra of GB – Wuthering Heights (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NSed1K-QNMc) and then of course to the original by Kate Bush herself in a weird proto mtv-esque sort of video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hv0azq9GF_g).
Fine, I say, I have the book at home. Then I get the idea that I want to watch the movie immediately and tonight so I search the nets. Thinking the tubes are kind I find a full version online and start watching only to find out that it is subtitled Chinese. My Mandarin is only just worse than my Cantonese and I was totally unable to follow even a word because the Chinese soundtrack was just layered over the English : – (
Sadness, but I did not give up. Then mana from heaven… I find the whole 1939 Sir Lawrence version on…
wait for it…
youtube! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9BTdQ3eomP8 part 1 of 15)
So at this point I am seriously considering cultivating a proper nemesis and seeing where that takes me.
