Tumblr Crushes:

There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity. For the next hour, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. We repeat: there is nothing wrong with your television set. You are about to participate in a great adventure. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to… my Tumblr Crush list.

It is easy to see how the first performance caused a riot. The first time I heard it, on vinyl, my friend’s two year old daughter was scared out of her mind by it.

That’s just too precious, I have to say.  And yes, I completely agree about the first performance.  There were several moments where I was leaning halfway over with my jaw wide open and I was just frantically looking around the entire orchestra trying to get even the slightest grasp of the genius Stravinsky put into the piece.

Such a life changing performance.

If you have seen any of these people, be warned. These people were sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn’t commit.  They promptly escaped from a maximum-security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem…if no one else can help…and if you can find them…maybe you can hire…The A- Team.
