I just wanted to update an earlier #WaltzWednesday post. The very first one, in fact. In that post, I said that the Blue Danube is the definitive, archetypal waltz. I stand by that statement. But I should have added at the time, that the most beautiful expression of it ever set on film: here it is.
If the gentle matching up of the rotation of the spaceplane to the rotation of the spaceport brings a mist over my eyes, does that make me a geek? So be it. I weep for the potential we are pissing down the gold toilet.
There are people who absolutely love 2001, A Space Odyssey, and people who absolutely hate it. To the latter group, I say: this is still a world where you are free to be so very, very wrong.
