Project 313 – Post No. 167

The movie Seven Brothers for Seven Brides is one of the very few musicals (I can’t right now think of another) that I like (I often sing a few of the songs . . . but I make up my own words).

And, it is mostly the music that carries the movie because the plot is . . . well, not exactly cerebral. 

The movie still carries a pretty high rating but . . . I wonder how it plays to modern audiences?

Yes, it’s a romantic comedy . . . if you look at romance as men kidnapping women so that said women will eventually acquiesce and fall in love said men; how many cartoons have we seen of cavemen with a club and a woman in tow being dragged by her hair? Heck, the idea is even celebrated by one of the songs in the movie, a catchy little tune that serves as the template for the subsequent action. 

Yes, the women have a little agency, but the message is clear to every stalker out there; kidnap them and they will eventually fall in love with you.

Not exactly a PC kind of message in any way you look at it. 

Still, a number of decent songs in the movie, so I guess that makes it alright. 

On a side note, not a movie and not related to the above, but I like this from Celestial Navigations . . . Intervention.  

Hmm . . . perhaps I’m a Neanderthal after all. But, I so want to write stories like this one. Our favorite of theirs is Ice.  You don’t have to, of course, but if you have 12 minutes, give it a listen. 

And now, the photo:

The world is getting complicated and Mr. Boffo is here to help explain it . . .

. . . there; now you know. 

After careful consideration, I concluded that . . . If you could see smells they would look like these emotions.

And . . . that’s it

Some of these posts will likely be longer as the mood hits me, but most will be thus; short, uninteresting, bland, and relentless.
