Sadly…

…Through My Own Personal Adventures…

…I’ve Found That…

THE ADVENTURES OF BARON MUNCHAUSEN

…Is Hardly Thought Of At All By The Bulk Of Other Peeps.

And That Fact Really Is Sad.

This Is A WONDERFUL Flick, My Peeps.

TOTALLY And FO SHO!!!

It’s Exciting!

It’s Fun!

It’s Crazy!

It’s A Rip-Roaring Adventure In Every Measurable Way!

Now You Know Me, My Peeps…

…I’m NOT Going To Spoil A Moment Of It For You.

All I’m Trying To Do Is…

1.) Tell You I'm Watching It.
2.) Do So In A Written Form.

…And…

3.) Give You Just Enough To Wet Your Collective Whistles And Make You Wanna Check It Out For Yourselves.

Period.

Need A Plot Summary Or Something?

FINE!

IMDB Can EASILY Supply YOU With THAT.

Fair Enough, Kiddies?!

AWESOME OPOSSUM!!!

Something I WILL Share With You Is…

THE ADVENTURES OF BARON MUNCHAUSEN

…Was Made With Lots And LOTS Of LOVE And CARE.

It’s A Priceless Little Gem On A VERY Grand Scale.

And It’s ADDICTIVE, My Peeps.

Honestly AND Fo SHO!

The First Time I Saw It Was In 1991.

We Rented It For A Weekend.

I’m Unsure As To How Many Times I Watched It In Those 2 Days…

…But It Was Something Like 5 Or 6 Times.

No Foolies, Folks.

I’m As Serious As A Heart-Attack.

My Family Was Utterly SICK OF IT By Weekend’s End.

And Then…

…Two Weeks Later…

…I Rented It For ANOTHER Weekend!

(hahahahahahahaha)

Yeah.

Am I Making My Point Clear Enough?

I. LOVE. THIS. FLICK.

PERIOD.

It’s An ALL-TIME FAVE Of FAVES.

Let Me Put It To You This Way…

…If You Invited Me Over To Your House To Watch A Movie…

…And It Was Up To Me To Bring Something…

…I’d Do As I Always Do And Bring Over FIVE (5) Flicks To Choose From.

However…

…There Are Only TWO (2) Staple Flicks I ALWAYS Bring Over.

KRULL

(My Favorite Flick EVER EVER EVER!)

…And…

THE ADVENTURES OF BARON MUNCHAUSEN

(The Flick I Most Enjoy Watching With Someone Else!)

TRUST ME, My Peeps…

…It’ll Make You Smile…

A LOT!

The Song SUPER Stuck In My Head: “CARELESS HEART” by ROY ORBISON (1988)

I Had Somebody…

…Somebody Who Loved Me…

…Someone So Good To Me…

…You Were My Angel…

…You Were My Heaven…

…But I Was Too Blind To See…

***

Recorded In 1988, “CARELESS HEARTIs One Of The Very Best From ROY ORBISON‘s Final Album, 1989‘sMYSTERY GIRL!!!

***

…I Let You Slip Away…

…I Guess I Never Knew…

…I Had The World With You…

…I’d Be There…

…Still Be There…

…In Your Arms…

…If Not For My…

…CARELESS HEART…

…You’d Still Be Loving Me…

…If Not For My…

…CARELESS HEART…

…You’d Still Be Mine…

…I Wouldn’t Have This Hurt Inside…

…I Wouldn’t Have These Tears To Cry…

…If Not For My…

…CARELESS HEART…

…If Not For My…

…CARELESS HEART. …

*<>*

Y’all Are Already Well Aware Of My Love For…

ROY ORBISON

…As The Man’s Music Simply Breaks Me Down And Speaks To Me In Such A Profound Way.

This Song…

CARELESS HEART

…Is One Of His All-Time Greatest Jams EVER…

…And It Remains One Of His Most Forgotten Classics Among Classics.

The Song Was Recorded By ROY In 1988…

…And Then Posthumously Released In 1989 On The Album…

MYSTERY GIRL

…An Album Which ALSO Remains One Of ROY‘s Very VERY Best.

With The Way I’ve Felt Of Late…

…I Sincerely Didn’t Want To Waste The Opportunity To Slip This Little Number Into The Mix.

CARELESS HEART

…Is An Amazingly Beautiful Song…

…And It Totally Deserves All The Love AND Praise One Can Muster-Up.

I Was Going To Blog About It The Other Day…

…But I Felt The Need To Wait For It.

Last Night…

…As I Was Listening To It For Like The 15TH, Or 20TH, Or 200TH Time This Week…

…I Decided It Was High-Time To Break-It-Out On Y’all.

Now, YES, I Do Know It’s A Rather Sad/Depressing Song…

…But I’ve Found That Some Of The Greatest Things In Life Can ALSO Be A Touch Sad/Depressing.

When It Comes To ROY, However…

…I Simply Wouldn’t Take Anything For That Man.

He Is/Was PRICELESS.

A True American Treasure.

A True Treasure, Period.

If There’s ANY SONG I Can Recommend To Y’all From The Album…

MYSTERY GIRL

…This Would Be The One.

The Whole Album Is VERY Good…

…But This Little Number…

CARELESS HEART

…Is An Honest To Goodness TEARJERKER.

Why I Insist Upon This Horrid Practice Of Listening To Sad Songs When I’m Depressed, Or Whatever, I’ll Never Know.

I Think I Must Simply Enjoy Wallowing In My Personal Misery.

Can You Think Of Another Excuse?

SEE!

I Didn’t Think You Would.

HOWEVER…

…I Love And Respect ROY Enough Not To Let A Great Song Become Mired Within My Being Overtly Sensitive Of Late.

It’s Been An Odd Experience For Me, That’s A Big FO SHO.

Being Virtually Emotionless (outwardly speaking) For Such A Long Time…

…This Latest Bout Of OVER-Emotion Is Seriously Screwing With Me.

It’s Not Something I’m Used To, That’s FO DAMN SHO.

And…

…At Times…

…I’ve Struggled MIGHTILY.

Period.

Living Life Isn’t So Easy When You Feel So Out-Of-Sorts…

…Or Out-Of-Control…

…Or Out-Of-Your-Mind.

And Even Though This Song…

CARELESS HEART

…Is Such A Tugger Upon My Heartstrings…

…It’s A Song That Remains VERY Special To ME.

Period Period.

*****<><><>*****

ANYWAY, My Peeps…

…Please PLEASE Do Take Care Of Yourselves.

It’s Supposed To Be An Amazingly Comfortable Morning Outside…

…So I’m Not Going To Waste It.

Time For A Long Walk, Kiddies?!

YOU BETCHA!!!
