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.
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.
