All Saints Day Musical Theme, Better Late Than Never

My take on All Saints Day–slightly peculiar as it may seem to be.


Saints, as in ALL.

This is the long version of Private Witts Death from the full recording material of The Thin Red Line

The Thin Red LIne is perhaps the most powerful spiritual film about war produced to date.  If you know of another ‘character’ to compare with Private Witt, please take the time to comment and share your thoughts.

    It seems all of us had a slightly alternative viewpoint on sainthood. Boondock Saints is a great movie, and really does give me a good impression of what a modern saint is. Good job Eva. 🙂

      Hi Johnny, O the Boondockers are indeed one form, Private Witt is quite something all in his own right.
      It’s good to be ‘alternative’ with our points of view–at least it is from my point of view. 🙂
      And about those crows we love to count coming up next…

        Oh yes, there will be crows…

        Yes, I suspect we shall share one particular song. 🙂 Perhaps another. I leave REM to you, Johnny. 🙂 Damn there is a lot of crow music to kaw about.

      Wow! You are quick!! I liked the art work from All Saint’s Day better than the music. :-0 Thai was weird. Boondock Saints 🙂 🙂 Gregorian had embedding disabled 😦 And I have not yet watched Thin Red Line. I shall rent it, at your recommendation. Thank you for thie “better late…” post.

        Well Bear it just all came together as soon as I though of Private Witt. There’s a scene in the film that I can’t seem to find posted on the tubes of you. If you watch the film you will KNOW it when you see it, that is incredibly beautiful. Yes, there is beautiful in this film about war–which is just one reason why it’s a huge mistake to write it off as just another war flick. It’s anything BUT. Though I do know smart folks who absolutely MISS all the important things. Or perhaps they just don’t want to go “there.”
        O Thai probably does come across as a little strange–consider this though, I discovered the video while searching for a particular ‘hymn’. From the comments for various versions of the hymn posted on youtube I learned that certain verses that didn’t fit the agendas of some folks had been repeatedly ‘removed’ from the presentations. Those verses, provided in part by one commentator, lead me to the Thai piece.which — in my mind–are adequately represented in the gaming video.
        Go figure.
        So it goes when you explore the interconnectedness of things. 🙂

        Why you grinning BEAR—you’re having such fun with ALL things Crow big time! I think you will be able to write a cultural studies book on the subject just with what you’ve gathered for this theme. And I thought I was having fun with my ‘soundtrack’ for #31 BS. Ha!

        Oh did you now!? I’ve been milking Mrs. Ling’s shrimp for all they’re worth.

      • November 4, 2013 at 7:34 am

        And shrimp cheese too. Just you wait, Bear. 🙂
