What a trip - watching fighter plans roar through the sky with Siegfried's Funeral Music, from today's L.A. Opera broadcast, as the background music.
I stumbled upon a location with a great view, far from the madding crowds, which my equine friend, who seemed to be tripping out a bit on his own, promised not to reveal.
It's not nicknamed God-damn it's long, as my friend Lita calls it, for nothing. My iPod ran out of juice and cut out dead before I got to hear the ending. If anyone heard it all the way through, can you fill me in? Did everything come out OK?
