Hi, good morning, here, in Cambridge, UK. Hope and trust, that you are well. Hope it doesn't come across as impolite, but I'll just be in 'sitting on the train; half aware the next stop I have to get off the train' mode. Is it true? It's many parodies. What happens? Life, artist, canvas, right. Bit this artist focusses on... Particularly interested in - (I've tried interconnectedness, community... group behaviour? finishes lamely broad canvas, lots of people.) What do I think? I think that to get this pell mell effect 'tune into a radio here and it just happens to have something to do with the story there' must have been a technical challenge- that team rose to. Don't ? (I mean , do what you want) forget , main character here- Robert Altman. His reaction , to the Nashville music scene. If we are protecting people from things on this website, then there is some horror. To be wary of/ however justified. I didn't get, all of the parodies. I made it- Henry ... - Johnny Cash. Lady husband wants to know where she is - Dolly Parton? Also her, extensive rambling stories during set? One of the beehives, Karen Carpenter. ... John Denver? boy in the lodging house, anodyne song from banker's son? I can't remember A Mighty Wind... But. The relationship between source and actor, in a parody, is a slightly parasitic one. Mighty Wind? felt a bit more, like it was killing the host. This, does let the music play, so you enjoy it. Thanks, good day. Gosh! where does the time go.
