This summer, Momo and I went to the Boulder Chautauqua's screening of Rupert Julien's Phantom of the Opera. It was sort of fantastic. Now, sometimes, when I'm feeling artistic and morose and procrastinate-y, I'll watch a silent film. Unlike the Chautauqua, I don't have a beautifully improvised live piano score, so I've had to cobble together my own, one shuffle fits all playlist. It can often not make any sense, but occasionally, you witness some really beautiful, cohesive, unanticipated art. Here's a sample film (Alice in Wonderland) and my playlist -- you might want to try making your own combinations, though (if you can get past the general insufferableness of all this).
