Still more lazy thoughts from this one…

Reprise » Music & Art: Tatooine

Tatooine

Just so readers don’t get the idea that I’m all about the old and forgotten music, I submit the following:

Not only powered by a deceptively catchy tune by Minnesotan Jeremy Messersmith (the self-described “Musician, nerd. Not in that order.”, and who recently toured SXSW), the paper animation by Eric Power in the music video remains mesmerizing to watch. Being the old Star Wars fan that I am, the animator/filmmaker’s ability to distill and render the original trilogy in 2:40 minutes can’t be understated. My kids loved the video when first shown it back in 2010. They asked me to play the tune over and over again in the car via my iPod.

I can’t say I ever tire of watching the glints in their eyes whenever we share a music and art connection of this sort.

Twin suns of Tatooine
Taught me everything I know
Twin suns of Tatooine
Taught me everything I know

There's room up there for second chances
Singles are fine but doubles are fantastic
I'd like to think that there's a star for me and you
Spinning round, falling for one another

Twin suns of Tatooine
Taught me everything I know
Twin suns of Tatooine
Taught me everything I know

Solos are fine but duets are romantic
A pair is grand but a trio'd be disastrous
I'd like to think that there's a star for me and you
Spinning round, falling for one another

Are you talkin’ to me?
