    Okay, the video's focus isn't the best, but it"s from a live concert by "Weird Al" Yankovic and his band.

    I am not that much of a classical style music fan, tending when I am in the mood toward such obvious and popular things as Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker, Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, and of course Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte.

    Here is the Queen of the Night aria, fabulously delivered by Diana Damrau, who not only sings it wonderfully but truly embodies the furious anger of the Queen. Love those Staccatos!

    A parody of Be Our Guest from Disney's Beauty and the Beast titled Wear A Mask:



    Might get taken down, but it's worth listening to the parody imho. I listened to it on my LiveJournal feed.

    In 1934, motion pictures in the US were hit with the Hays code, intended to eliminate ‘immoral’ and ‘indecent’ content in films. It was not just live action movies that were affected but cartoons as well. The pre-code Betty Boop was one of the major targets. Not only did she dress and act rather provocatively and her boyfriend Bimbo seemed to be some kind of animal but – and this was rarely said aloud but it was real - the cartoons promoted too much appreciation of ‘colored’ music. They were also creative, imaginative and thoroughly enjoyable for an audience happy to escape for a brief time from the sad realities of the Depression.

    A prime example of what was ‘wrong’ with Betty Boop according to commissioner Hays. Enjoy.


    Betty before and after the code. Bimbo was gone and so was the ‘decadent’ jazz.

    Why do GIFs sometimes misbehave? The GIF would not run in the prior post until I replied.

    Are you sure it's a GIF and not a GAF? :)

    Sometimes only the 1st image of a GIF displays when linking the URL. I reloaded it as an attachment.

    Apparently GIFs time out or something and stop 'performing'. You have to wake them up somehow.

    Did you mean gaffe? :)

    This reminds me of dauer (I believe this was one of his favourites, but I could be mistaken):
