Its Monday, and here's my gift to you, if you need a 15 minute break from work and love old-style handdrawn animation, sweet but not saccharine love stories, and the voice of Liv Ullmann.

I present The Danish Poet.

[livejournal.com profile] vfc showed this to me when I visited her in Bloomington the weekend before last, and its still making me laugh.....

.....almost as much as thinking about Jenna Maroney on 30 Rock busting out into "New York State of Mind" in that old episode when they're on the yacht. Unfortunately, there's no clips of that, they've all be yanked.

Happy Twelfth Night!

If music be the food of love, play on;
Give me excess of it, that, surfeiting,
The appetite may sicken, and so die.
That strain again! it had a dying fall:
O, it came o'er my ear like the sweet sound,
That breathes upon a bank of violets,
Stealing and giving odour! Enough; no more:
'Tis not so sweet now as it was before.
O spirit of love! how quick and fresh art thou,
That, notwithstanding thy capacity
Receiveth as the sea, nought enters there,
Of what validity and pitch soe'er,
But falls into abatement and low price,
Even in a minute: so full of shapes is fancy
That it alone is high fantastical.

- Act I, Scene 1, Twelfth Night, or As You Like It

Also, I think [livejournal.com profile] sharkysmachine and I are going to have an orgy with all the people in this clip:
