Dis’ney Dali on Wednesday…

“I’ve got something for you,” Thoughtful Man greeted me as I shuffled into the Library, carrying a still dozing Poppy in my arms. “And good morning.”

*I’ll admit he was surprisingly cheery, Click. Not like him at all*

He was sat at his PC, so I handed the dog off to him and kissed the top of his head, on his Cadfael spot. Thoughtful Man hates that. “Oh yeah, what’s that?”

I went and made a coffee whilst waiting for him to answer: Poppy’s frenetic face washing impedes talking when there’s a better than outside chance you’ll be slipped some tongue.

“What have you got for me then?” I asked, plonking my coffee cup on my desk and my arse on my sofa. “Got a rollie?”

Thoughtful Man smiled, lent over and handed me the fag tin. “Did you know Disney made a cartoon with Salvador Dali?”

The six-minute short follows the love story of Chronos and the ill-fated love he has for a mortal woman named Dahlia. The story continues as Dahlia dances through surreal scenery inspired by Dalí’s paintings. There is no dialogue, but the soundtrack includes music by the Mexican composer Armando Dominguez.

The 17 second original footage that is included in the finished product is the segment with the two tortoises (this original footage is referred to in Bette Midler’s host sequence for The Steadfast Tin Soldier in Fantasia 2000, as an “idea that featured baseball as a metaphor for life”).

“Your sister posted it on Facebook this morning. I thought you could write a post about it.”


*Oh, you wanna believe I squinted at that one, Clicky*

“Write a post? You’re suggesting I write a post?”

Thoughtful Man sighed, “Yes. I am your enabler. I thought you’d find it interesting.” He stopped and gave me his devilish grin. The one with the glint. “And in return, you enable me.”

I knew it

*Yes, your squinting was about to be confirmed, Clicky. And ‘Oww!’*

“I thought I’d go back to bed for a couple of hours.” Thoughtful Man handed Poppy back to me. “She needs to go out for a wee, last night’s washing up is in the sink and downstairs could do with a hoovering.”

He sashayed away, halting only when he reached the Library doorway “Oh and the boys’ll be up soon. They’ll want feeding. Just a couple of hours. Love you.”

      1. Not yet. I’ll know when I know I guess. Chompin at the bit…that’s for sure. Trying to be patient and keep working. Not like I’m ACTUALLY working or anything. Just, doing…whatever it is. Peg is tolerating me over there thank God. I dunno what I’d do if she didn’t.

        I noticed you lurking and your post @ SMF.calm BTW. Was nice to see you out and about.

        OH! I got invited “to be a regular” on an internet radio show last night. ROFL
        Could… …not… …fucking… …believe it.
        I guess we’ll see.

        Say howdy to all for me k? ❤

            They are on @ 5:00PM/17:00 Pacific on Saturdays…Sometimes on Sunday mornings like in the late AM? And also Tuesday nights some times? I dunno all the “regular” date(s) time(s) except the Saturday show. So what’s that like 02:00 for you? They play a lot of music for anywhere from 30 minutes to hours sometimes while everyone makes requests or comments in the chatroom. Then they start talking about what the fuck ever. Good peeps. Funny. Laid back. Interesting. Interested in helping people. Sometimes weird as shit. They have a “channel” who comes on sometimes who channels an alien from somewhere or something like that. He’s only been on once when I was listening to the show, and it was my first time listening. I have no idea what the fuck they were talking about. Holistic medicine is in there sometimes but they talk about all kinds of weird shit. Kinda like SMF.notsocalm kinda stuff.

            Anyway…last night was only the second time I’ve called in. I usually just hang and smart off/try to be funny in the chatroom while I listen.

              1. Yeah I guess if you are drunk enough or bored enough,,,2AM Sunday Morning still qualifies as “Saturday Night.” 🙂

  1. Thanks for the vid. Awesome. I didn’t have the courage to watch it yesterday. Things happen after you post videos and it’s got that feel.

    And after you showing up on speed dial, my WordPress reader added you to my ‘reads’ without being asked. Never used it before but will now 🙂

      1. Destino jumped out for me as well. I included the pic of the ‘Door’ Moorrison which said ‘Love cannot save you from your fate’ in yesterday’s article.

        And keeping well away. I’m only going where I feel comfortable at present.
