I'm afraid I had to show wechsler the outfit Olivia Newton-John is wearing in the "rock kitten" section of Xanadu. Many of you will find this incredibly hokey. Unfortunately, it explains a very twisted part of my brain, and every time I see it I just love it more, even the three foot long fringe on the cowboy costumes and the whirling ribbon dance. And especially the Bride of Ming outfit. Aaaahhh ....



My night: I went to a bar where I was given an elephant, which was blue but not pink. Then I went to a restaurant which was pink and I was less blue.

Tomorrow: heart doctor. Eep!

Blue elephants
I had expressed extreme jealousy about the PHP blue elephant to wechsler, so now he's got me my own, only it's a neck pillow so it's actually kind of better because I needed a replacement for the one I lost.

I know you won't care, but the first 10 seconds or so of that clip was run on The Daily Show last night.

No, you're wrong!
That is actually QUITE exciting. Why were they playing it?

Re: No, you're wrong!
Short Answer - they were making fun of French roller-blading cops.

Longer answer - they were doing a bit on the Olympic torch going through Paris, which was attended by French police on roller-blades, which Jon Stewart referred to (I think) as the "dreaded French roller-death squadron", and then showed what they purported to be a film of their training, which was a few seconds of that clip.

Afterwards Stewart smiled at the audience and said "I just hit you with a "Xanadu" clip!"

Happy Memories
Ahh I just wish I could go to that happy place. I enjoyed the clip even though I have seen the movie a hundred times.

I don't recall hearing the sequence of songs on the Xanadu soundtrack. I'll have to check out the cd again...

Re: Happy Memories
They actually don't have the songs that are on the extended mix on the soundtrack, but some of them are on the back of the 45s (though it looks like it's only "Drum Dreams" and "Fool Country").
