The Sixth (non)Sense…

13 Dec

Nearly halfway through my serendipitously synchronized sequence of specialist subjects now, and today is particularly musical in tone, with a splash of comedy and an aptly convoluted movie to finish off.

The mighty Alan Partridge – Alpha Papa brought yesterday’s torrid trail to the end of its tether, so that is where we shall set off from today.

All aboard?
Right, let’s ramble.

Alan Partridge – Alpha Papa uses words from the phonetic alphabet in it’s title, as does Wilco’s 2002 album Yankee Hotel Foxtrot (apparently a reference to a recording of a secret spy network transmission).
Wilco Johnson was a member of legendary ’70s pub rock/punk/blues band, Dr Feelgood.
Dr Feelgood had a hit with Milk and Alcohol, co-written by Nick Lowe. The song is about Lowe overdoing it on Kahlúa milkshakes at a ’70s gig by blues legend John Lee Hooker.
Nick Lowe was in Rockpile, who had a hit with Crawling From The Wreckage.
This Wreckage was a hit for Gary Numan, whose real name is Gary Webb.
Robert Webb is in comedy duo Mitchell and Webb with David Mitchell.

But it’s a completely different David Mitchell who is responsible for today’s movie highlight.
Taken from Mitchell’s novel of the same name, Cloud Atlas is easily the most extraordinary looking film I’ve seen this year, if not the most coherent or comprehensible.

Tune in tomorrow for more links from the Lynx.

    Dale, I can’t thank you enough for sharing this movie clip! WOW! Just from the clip alone, I can tell what an extraordinary film it is! I have got to look for this film in the video store, because this is one I don’t want to miss. And what a GREAT cast!

    Thanks for sharing, buddy!

      It’s an extraordinary achievement, but I’d advise reading the book first if you want to follow the thread of the story.
      Incidentally, having just finished writing the next two instalments, I can tell you that you’re in for some more treats soon. Don’t forget to click those links, you never know what treasures they conceal.
      It’s almost like Christmas…
