Music
In Greek mythology, the muses were the daughters of Zeus the king of the gods and Mnemosyne the goddess of memory. The muses inspired men to create what we commonly call the fine arts. In this digital realm, you will find music of both high and low culture, from literature to the visual arts to what we narrowly call music in English. Enjoy and be grateful for being human; for the muses have richly blessed our race.

Pet Shop Joss

I recently saw the video for the Pet Shop Boys’ tribute to Elvis Presley on the tenth anniversary of his death, “Always on My Mind.” It is not a normal music video but rather a sequence from their bizarre musical film, It Couldn’t Happen Here. The scene features actor Joss Ackland, who plays his part suitably, though the part itself seems rather unsuitable for the song. But when did pop music videos make sense?

Ackland here reminds me of Tom Baker, who wonderfully combines eccentricity, surreality, and a bit of creepiness. Had Baker been as old then as he is now, he would have been perfect for the part.
