Xanadu

Stray thoughts:

I strongly suspect that this movie, released in August of 1980, was directly or indirectly responsible for Ronald Reagan winning the U.S. presidential election that November.

I'm disturbed by the ontological implications of a universe in which Glenn Miller and Benny Goodman exist, but Gene Kelly isn't Gene Kelly, he's just a weird clarinetist who can dance really well.

I'm glad I'll be seeing HOLY MOUNTAIN again soon as it seems a fitting double bill.

I don't care what anyone thinks, I really like Jeff Lynne and ELO.
