While playing the Moulin Rouge CD, I commented to Wee Bot that the movie had great costuming, beautiful sets, a creative and well-executed sound track, and a really crappy story. I told him that the songs were all old songs rearranged for the movie and that the voices on the CD were actually the actors in the movie. He thought that was cool.
“So,” he asked, “what was it about?”
Indicating points with my fingers, I explained, “Dude falls in love with the wrong girl. She doesn’t return his affections. Then, she dies.”
“That kind of sucks,” he commented.
“Yes,” I affirmed, “yes it does.”
And with that, I’ll leave you with Nature Boy as performed by David Bowie, which is why I put that CD on this morning in the first place.
Incidentally, does anyone remember this hilarity?
