If Anyone Asks, I Did Not Spend My Valentine’s Day Alone Making a Silent Movie

14 Feb

Except I totally did.

I bought this CD the other day of TV theme songs done in the style of different classical composers.  Spoiler alert:  It is amazing.  My favorite is the Debussy Bewitched.  Anyway, that CD inspired me to go to the library and find some more Debussy.  But seeing as how I am I rather than someone who is not ridiculous, I left the library twenty minutes later with a classical-tunes-done-by-banjo album, an accordion that was not the one I had wanted to get but it was the only one there, and–totally on impulse–a collection of pianola favorites.

So what’s a girl to do with a pianola album?

Make a silent movie and use one of the songs as the soundtrack, of course!

Unfortunately, I can’t get this ditty saved to youtube, so if anyone’s interested, check it out on my tumblr.

    Your dog is adorable!

    Also, very good facial expressions and gestures on your part. Perfect for a silent film!

      My dog is super cute. And he really does know a lot of tricks. He just would not do them to save his life. Also he’s fat. Lol.

      And thanks! I have watched a few silent films although I was mostly trying to channel Norma Desmond. 😉
