Those are pearls that were his eyes

The Waste Land, read by T. S. Eliot. In spite, or perhaps because of, his subject material nothing makes me quite the same type of happy as a poem by this Eliot. How peculiar.

The Burial of the Dead begins at 00:00; A Game of Chess: 04:58; The Fire Sermon: 10:21; Death By Water: 18:19; What The Thunder Said: 19:00.

My favorite line: “those are pearls that were his eyes” exists at 3:00.

Has anyone else noticed that T. S. Eliot spelled backwards is Toilets? Life has a humor.

I know this is not this blog’s standard fare. It’s usually heavier. Sadder. Sometimes I worry that my self-conscious attention to producing quality material evolves into the cancer called pretention. Other times I worry that for a blog it’s not too personal. These things are supposed to be personal, right?

This clip is easily one of the funniest sketches I’ve ever seen.
