sometimes ya just gotta dance


*with apologies to Ursula K. LeGuin (for anyone familiar with The Lathe of Heaven).

I don't know but I've been told, if you keep on dancing you'll never grow old.

Do you have your own, "I don't know but I've been told ... "? Feel free to share.

Here's another one I know:

I don't know but I've been told Northern girls are mighty cold.

I was out enjoying my own "drops of golden Sun" today ... working in my yard.

Oh, I love that song. That was a fantastic video! I can't wait to get down your way. "might cold," huh? We'll just see about that. ;)

Yeah, I couldn't help but smile watching that. I had to watch it several times, and I have dial-up so it takes forever to buffer.

What! You mean the winters don't get cold up there anymore? :-D

You made me pull out my vhs tape of The Sound of Music and I just started watching it.

I thought the movie version of The Lathe of Heavenpretty much followed the basic plot of the book although it took awhile getting used to Dr. Haber in the movie.

I have the TLOH on tape too (taped from PBS) and may watch that again soon. I think my favorite scene is when George asks to get off work in the antique shop, and the alien gives him a 45 record of the Beatles' "With a Little Help from my Friends".

I'm a little weird so this is just my kind of movie. :-)

Oh, no! I didn't know there was a remake. Sounds awful.

I just looked up the PBS movie and found the reason it hadn't been available for so many years was the very scene I mentioned with the Beatles record being played.

It was reissued in 2000 with another singer, I just read. I cannot imagine that scene being anywhere near as effective without Ringo's voice singing the song and it then going into the transition music to the next scene.

It was beautiful. Looks like I own a little piece of history.

You might look for the re-issue of the movie (if it exists), and imagine the Beatles instead of the re-dubbed music.

Oh, sweet! I think you'll find much to like in it, especially having read the novel. The original reviews, as I recall, were less than flattering - but I loved it.

As I recall, it was the first PBS film ever produced. I must watch it soon now, although I can almost play it in my head. I'm sure I've seen it 15-20 times and used to show it to friends who weren't familiar with it.

Please let me know what you think of it when you see it.

What would you think if I sang out of tune? :-)

Oh, yes, and here's one I've been told, "you have to watch those Louisiana boys." lol!

Saw that a couple weeks back. Zounds! Similar flash mob dance events would be great fun to participate in. 'course I live in the Wild West, and people are so widely spaced we'd need to view it on satellite. heh.

I don't know but I've been told penicillium is a kind of mold.
