From The Sublime To The Ridiculous - But I Like The Ridiculous Better!

I started my day inundated with Shakespeare, a book, a few quotes here and there, a poster.

I'm ending my day with Mel Brooks' Blazing Saddles. Could Madeline Kahn be any greater as Lili Von Shtupp? Her "I'm Tired" song sung in that low register is fabulous -the best is the moment where she hangs in for a long note and has to breathe in to keep it going. Her timing was impeccable. I can't believe that bitch cancer got her.
