If you're in the mood....

for something strangely awesome - go to Youtube and search for Tom Waits black rider. If you're not familiar with it, "The Black Rider - The Casting of the Magic Bullets" was a musical based on an old German folk tale. This guy Robert Wilson (an avant-garde theatre director) put it on. William S. Burroughs wrote it and Tom Waits did all the music. It's mostly in German (which makes it even more confusing) but it is definitely worth checking out. They have a plot synopsis on wikipedia which helps clarify things a lot. tallyho!
