amazing, just amazing

were giving and getting music-tips with a guy a few hours ago, and this just blew my mind. I knew who he was as an actor, and have heard quite a few songs as a kid, but never made the connection and had forgotten the music, but OMG.
I love the voice, the music and his overall wierdness.
and since he has been in (at least) 2 of gilliams movies some of you might find this interesting. :)

Holly: wow, he's unique. I'd never heard him sing before, but I really liked it.

sit-on-my-face:

Ouh! Just found a quote about our very dear Terry Gilliam that resumes quite well who he is:
"TG is an impresario, captain, magician, a dictator (a nice one), a genius and a man you'd want in the boat with you at the end of the world. "
Isn't that right!?

mrsCutout: Oh he is brilliant! I just love his voice too and yes Martha is great! I have a great vid of him on ututbe but i just can't upload the bloody link!

sit-on-my-face: Yes. He's a bloody god. I really fancy Bone Machine and "Martha"(very early - but nonetheless great - work is the most beautiful love song ever written. If you ask me. There it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y9Mse62NFl4

Yesssssssssssssss Martha is one of my favorites too!!!

Lvndr HppE: Has anyone here heard when the Imaginarium is coming out on video? Or if it has already? And what other Gilliam film was he in? I only know of one.

Lady and Laird Candermine at 2:47 pm April 24

The US version is coming out on Tuesday the 27 th of April... right round the corner...

the_thina at 9:23 am April 20

dont know when it comes out.. but to your other question, he was in fisher king as well. sat in a wheelchair begging formoney

the_thina at 9:27 am April 20

or maybe not begging, havent seen it in ages, but as far as I remember he was begging

Lvndr HppE at 1:28 pm April 20

Ooooh! And I saw that movie. I guess he went by so fast that I didn't notice him.

thewastelandr: You NEED to get his album "Alice"... by far his best album and probably one of the best albums I have ever heard in my life. In my undergrad honors program, we did an elective on rock and roll music and philosophy, and that was the album we focused on. BRILLIANT. Flower's Grave is such a brilliant song. You MUST listen to the album as a whole, because it flows together and tells a story, but here's a link to the first song...

man, what a VOICE! I love whiskey-voces!

thewastelandr at 8:09 am April 20

He's got a sexy voice! Check out the song Kommienezuepadt... from the same album. It used to freak me out when I was younger, but now I love it!

the_thina at 8:33 am April 20

german, is it? listening to it now... and I have a bit trouble hearing what he sings at times, thank god that you can look up lyrics on internet now adays. haha.
just got told by the man who gave me the tip that he has scandinavian blood in him. and that he is very interessted by insects (ironic since he eats them in one of my favourite dracula-movies haha)
way cool

"Komme nie zu spät" means "never be late"
