Buzzbox

Hurrah - The Harold Lloyd 9 DVD Box Set (I'm never sure if it's 'box' or 'boxed') has arrived. Disc 1 is out of the way, and after only watching the iconic clock hanging epsidode in scraps, bits and bobs - to see the full stretch of 'Safety Last' is nail bitingly, neck tighteningly tense.

Here's a Clip from 'An Eastern Westerner' set to the John Spencer Blues Explosion ( a band I've always swerved, but actually like the sound of after hearing this)



I'm also on a bit of a Monty Python buzz at the mo', I picked the 'Python Personal Best' Box Set (I'm never sure if....) for eight earth pounds, via 'new or used' on Amazon. Which is good, but missing a few classics 'Spanish Inquisition', not much 'Gumby' and an edited version of 'Argument room' - edited to the point of 'Argument Room' not being in it..but the Terry Gilliam disc - one solid hour of surrealist animation - makes it worth grabbing at any price. Here's another DIY soundtrack where....

Star Trek Meets Monty Python

OH NO!!!...what have Python done to the classic Star Trek???
Glad they weren't active around the time to adulterate "The Next Generation", "Voyager" and "Deep Space Nine". I don't think I could bear it!

Fab bit of Harold Lloyd footage by the way...

Have now...what a hoot; Fantastic!

I agree; the soundtrack was an excellent choice PM. At times it was almost as though they were lip synching!

That soundtrack to the Harold Lloyd clip is inspired. What a beautiful fit. The dvd box set has also sorted my Dad's next birthday present - cheers!
