Bad Associations

April 17th, 2017 by G.

Three boys are singing in your church.  Ages 4-9.  The 4-year old is really belting.  Their song is called “Gethsemane,” and you are really enjoying it.  It has a folk/pop simplicity to it that fits the singers.  It involves a lot of repetition of the word Gethsemane.

But there is a niggling reminder of something else.  You work at it for a bit and finally you bring it up.

Stonehenge, by Spinal Tap.

You cram that association back into the bottle.

Ha! When Spinal Tap came out in 1984, I was working for a few weeks in in London and seeing a lot of movies – I enjoyed it so much that I went back to the cinema and rewatched it within a week (something I only ever did for one other movie – Local Hero).

“Nobody knows who they were or … what they were doin’ — but their legacy lives on.”

Quite simply the best movie ever made. I was only five when it came out, but I’ve watched it on DVD more times than I care to count.

I liked ‘Local Hero’ a lot too.
