Some things are better left unimagined -- or better yet, left to the imaginations

of those demented enough to run such things.

How about some music for a change?

 

Johann Sebastian Bach's Brandenburg Concerto #3 for sitar, steel drum, and bagpipe

 

I've heard worse.

 

Much worse

I think the worst music experience I've ever lived through was the Star Wars Christmas Special, though the Star Wars Robot Chicken "Empire on Ice" sketch was a pretty close second.

Re: Genre-crossover nightmares

 

Scavenged from the internet:

 

 

"Indeed," said the man (whom Patience could not help but think of as

made of clockwork, though he manifestly was something far stranger), "I

speak of these things not merely because of the way that I am made,

though indeed a machine should do that which it is made to do, but

because I have found that I have developed, through our many

conversations, a feeling of that which is proper, both within the bounds

of your society and without; and being that I am, here, a gentleman, I

find that I am also bound to behave as a gentleman would, and indeed,

Lady Patience, I must warn you that this Mr. Connor is a man of less

than sterling character."

 

Patience was quite taken aback by this sudden expression of personal

concern, so unlike the measured rationality of the Mr. Terminus that she

had come to know and depend upon, and so for several moments she sat

quietly, simply looking upon his earnest, if overly regular,

countenance, before she had quite decided upon her reply. "Sir, your

concern for me is noted, and not entirely without my appreciation, but

you are most forward and presumptuous to offer advice in such a matter,

in which you cannot have any interest and which is, therefore, entirely

between myself and Mr. Connor."

Try this on for size:

 

"It was a slow day in the cornfield -- one of those hot summer days when even the crows don't come out in groups of more than three or four. That was just as well, because for a guy like me scaring them away can be a complete mystery.

 

"Then she walked up, with that cute little blue-and-white plaid dress, her hair up in braids, and a Cairn terrier nipping at her heels. I should have realized from the moment she opened her mouth that, from that day forward, my life would never be the same."

Ah. That would be "The Private Detective of Oz", yes?

I believe that quote was from Tin men and Yellow Bricks, the novelization of the earlier short story.

 

Anybody know of others in the series?

Actually TM&YB was the third in the series. The quote was from the second, Hard-Boiled and Soft-Headed.

 

The only other title I recall is the fourth, The Lion is Yellow.
