"Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome is a short 38 minute film by Kenneth Anger in 1954. Anger created a new version of this film in 1966 which he called the "Sacred Mushroom Edition". According to Anger, the film takes the name "pleasure dome" from Samuel Taylor Coleridge's atmospheric poem Kubla Khan. Anger was inspired to make the film after attending a Halloween party called 'Come as your Madness'."

Once Upon A Time In The West

One of my favorite films with such an amazing theme song...
"Man With Harmonica" composed by Ennio Morricone

"A 1968 epic spaghetti Western film directed by Sergio Leone. The film stars Henry Fonda cast against type as the villain Frank, Charles Bronson as his nemesis "Harmonica", Jason Robards as the bandit Cheyenne and Claudia Cardinale as Jill, a newly-widowed homesteader with a past as a prostitute. The screenplay was written by Leone and Sergio Donati, from a story devised by Leone, Bernardo Bertolucci, and Dario Argento. The widescreen cinematography was by Tonino Delli Colli, and Ennio Morricone provided the film score."

When I Grow Up/Seven

I totally forgot that I was suppose to be at the Fever Ray show tonight. So instead of enjoying the show and being put into a magical world, I am dealing with my existential crisis...

Oh well...

Even though these music videos are great, I do have to say my favorite music video by her is "If I Had A Heart". I feel as if someone has picked out most of my ideas from my brain and placed it in this video. As if someone knew what goes on inside of my head with my dreams and thoughts...
