Dear readers (and listeners), if it is good music you seek, then run away and click the nearest link to flee this post immediately. Yes you won’t find it here today. Scream and run away! Goodbye.
Then if you were brave enough to stay with me, I shall introduce you to the terrible and scary Stephin Merritt and his band (or some would say musical project) The Gothic Archies. They have put out a cd The Tragic Treasurywith 13 songs that correspond to the 13 books of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. Notice I have not yet added a link, I do not want to do this to you, dear reader, but you’ve left me no choice – you won’t leave on your own. I must therefore provide the link which will immediately open into the
delightfully horribly charming haunting music from the brilliant twisted mind of Stephin Merritt.
Don’t say you weren’t warned: PLEASE, OH PLEASE DON’T CLICK HERE!!!
Oh, you haven’t left? Then you deserve not only every bit of what you hear, but what you see. The link below which can also be accessed from the above link (which I’m really hoping you didn’t click) is a link to the videos. If Diesel or Snuppy or someone else knows how to embed, well then this crowd is asking for it, they won’t leave! If not, and you haven’t come to your senses of the dangers that lie ahead, then just go ahead and CLICK HERE FOR THE VIDEO of Scream and Run Away which is
hysterical terrible and should not be seen. But if you do see it and the cruel Count Olaf has not kidnapped you to participate in some vile performance of his theatre troup, then I’m betting there are other videos and other entertaining links, like the one to MySpace or the direct one to the elusive author of the series himself, Lemony Snicket. There were some games somewhere on the site (sorry I really do have to sream and run away to violin with Tali, who incidentally is responsible for hooking me into this Series in the first place – the books, that is).
I heard about The Tragic Treasury back in the Fall on, you guessed it, my favorite (can’t you see why) radio station, WFUV. I just did not want to torment you with it, until now when I remembered about it and needed something to post. I hope you do enjoy and Count Olaf does not do anything terrible to you, dear readers. I hope Actonbell sees this Spin as I think I’ve read a review or mention of The Series at her wonderful blog where she muses about such, Paradise Alley. I don’t have time enough to find the particular post, but go muck about, there you won’t be tortured or in danger, at least I don’t think so.
Oh, and have a wonderful weekend…if you survived that is.
