Things I've been watching:

Elektra, the 1980 Opera from The Met:

I think the liberetto (lyrics) are fantastic - I'd love to make a comic based on the opera someday. I found myself wishing that I could have seen Birgit Nilsson in her prime, as this performance happened late into her career. Ce la vie. I will have to dig around for old recordings of this fab lady.

I loved Donald MacIntyre as Oretes. One, for his performance, and two, for his sexy gams.

Also, been watching Dangerous Liasons from 1988:
Why the hell didn't anyone tell me that Glenn Close is fabulous?  So far, I've been stuck on the part where John Malkovitch dumps Michelle Phiffer. Brutal.
