Holding you tightly sets me on fire

Well... that was certainly peculiar. I watched it with 'Underneath the sky' (Oasis) playing in the background and oddly it syncs quite well.

But, to paraphrase Seinfeld, I never really got the whole leg/foot thing. I already have a pair of those, y'know?

One of Leonard Cohen's pickup lines, I am told, is "You have great legs. I'd like to see what's at the end of them."

It means:

"Moral disapproval alone is an improper basis on which to deny rights to gay men and lesbians. The evidence shows conclusively that Proposition 8 enacts, without reason, a private moral view that same-sex couples are inferior to opposite-sex couples".

LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL!

(Sorry EOB, Sometimes I lose myself)

Very interesting... wonder what sparked your muse this day?

Bill said...

Is moral disapproval a basis to deny any activity or behavior? I hope I'm never denied the right to look at long, nylon clad, womens legs. Touching them at will is antother matter. Oh! What's wrong with a three way marriage?

Howdy Dude and Ken.

As for RJ and Bill, you're more than welcome to banter it about off topic.

And Mark, don't quite remember how I came upon this one. Just seemed like a fun post.

Apparently the disembodied legs are named Dolores.

(i just wanted to know what year it might be from and found that)

but fun to watch either way.
my favorite part is the men floating away like limp dishrags.

@jo--I went to the very same place and couldn't find a year. Could you please tell me when it was made?

Erin O'Brien said...

thanks, jo.

I love the original score!

Sorry Kirk, no help here ...

"Her legs were so long they reached from the ground all the way to Heaven."

@kirk -- cant find that anywhere exactly but im going with the 30's, considering the styles and music. Looks more 40's actually, but I thought Germany was a little busy with other stuff besides stocking animation then. Course maybe giant legs were a welcome diversion from war..

Kirk Jusko said...

@jo--1930s, huh?. Interesting.

I've read that German cinema right before WWII basically resembled the stuff being put out by Hollywood. Of course, by that time some of the best German directors (Fritz Lang, Joseph von Sternberg, Billy Wilder) had fled to America. But that's all live-action stuff. I don't know who the German equivelent of Walt Disney was. I'll have to check it out.

I imagine once the war started, the Nazis restricted the sale of nylons (as happened here in the US) and the commercial was yanked.
