Read it, seen it. There are some omissions, abridging of plots and characters in the animated adaptation of the novel, but the film has its moments too. The 'dance' scene with Black Rabbit of of Inlé is actually quite stirring, especially when one is already familiar with the novel.




here's to one RM fan to another, RM's tongue in cheek composition for Eurovision Song Contest

YouTube - Roxy Music (Brian Ferry) A Song For Europe (Live)

Lacking the necessary sophistication and not being familiar with the 'Eurovision Song Contest', the tongue-in-cheek thing is/was lost on me, but I've heard the song more than 100 times, in fact I own the DVD that vid is taken from. A haunting melody -- my goodness, those guys can play.

My personal Roxy tongue-in-cheek favorite (one that I actually get) is Prairie Rose.

The band Big Country supposedly got their name off the lyrics of that song.
