Heartbreaking.

I am finding new meaning with every viewing.

Much like THE ONE AND ONLY with Henry Winkler or SPIRIT OF THE BEEHIVE only...not?

Finally I get to hear Matthew's dulcet tones.

Matthew has a very soothing voice.

Do I? I think it sounds shrill and nasally. I talked to Busterface on the phone last night and he's a smooth-mouth cookie for sure.

I haven't heard soul-searching voiceovers that stirring since THE HOLLYWOOD STRANGLER MEETS THE SKID-ROW SLASHER.

That...wow. That was the ultimate compliment. I'm truly touched. Fred and Pat's visuals just sent me, ya know?

Though I always respect a director's decision to fine-tune their art, I think I preferred the original version more, to be honest. Lack of monologue made the piece much more philosophically ambiguous; interpretation was left entirely to the viewer. Now that meaning has been added to what originally had been meaningless, except within the mind of its audience, I think the piece has somewhat lost its originality and uniqueness.

When I originally watched this, I thought "Are Fred and Pat taking the Mickey? Or is it all simply an analogy alluding to Pat's fear of Basking Sharks?" - now it seems less so original and more of the usual "tortured angst" that is all too prevalent in the contemporary art-world. And no, I'm not taking the piss to be funny -- this is my honest opinion. :o
