So, I always liked the bits I saw from this old silent (now public domain) film. But, my attention span being what it is, I never had the discipline to watch the over-90-minutes of silence all in a row. The solution? I made a big long King Toad “best-of” compilation to serve as the Metropolis soundtrack &: voila! an artsy old film I can sit through. Sounds self-satisfied I know, but there it is. King Toad makes everything better! Anyway, I like this movie it turns out; it’s perty kewl.! I just don’t like the silence.
(P.S. I guess there are prints of this film that are 2 hours or more, and I bet some bits would make more sense with the added scenes, but for now I’ll have to be content with my 93 minute version.)
Hey! Hey hey hey! Did you vote for Obama yet??? Hurry up! Like they says: this ain’t gonna work out if everybody thinks it’s a done deal and sits on their ass. I’m all about voting early meself, cuz why put it off till the last minute? What if you oversleep on election day? What if you get pneumonia?? What if you die in a plane crash??? What, are you so selfish that you don’t care about voting if you don’t live to see it pay off? What about the rest of us? What about all the people you leave behind? We needed you to vote for Obama BEFORE you died, jerk!!! I did, and I’ve never been happier! That’s a lie, I’m not gonna be able to calm down a bit till this thing is over. …And even then I’m still gonna freak out over the idea of some crazy asshole skin-head assasination plot… Life is hard, huh? That’s why we need a smart, level-headed, handsome black man to guide us through these trying times!
VOTE OBAMA VOTE OBAMA VOTE OBAMA!
