…With the Sounds of Music…
Last night, I made a last-minute decision to join my friends at the theater for a Sound of Music singalong. It was a blast! If you haven’t gone before, you should go! You can’t help but sing along. The lyrics are on the screen, similar to what you see when you sing karaoke. I think what would make this experience even more fun and hokier, is if they add tacky karaoke club lights and sellubg alcoholic libations couldn’t hurt either.
They even put the latin words of the song the nuns were singing in the beginning! That one was hard to sing and follow along.
I’ve seen the movie several times in my life (though I won’t ever come close to qualifying as an avid fan), I didn’t ever notice if there were any sweaters or knits in the movie. This time, I paid attention. The only knits I found were finely knitted white cable knee socks worn by the kids and a black and white tie that appears to have been finely knitted in garter stitch worn by Captain Von Trapp. The movie has lots of felted hats though.
For you knitters, here are snapshots from one of my favorite bits in the movie. C’mon, is it really a surprise that I’d like the cute mountain goat puppets?
In addition to the drunken karaoke bar effect, I think to get the full experience next time, we should dress in lederhosen, knickerbockers, drindls and habits.
