Ladies & Gentlemen, may I have your attention please?

Feeding into my love for all things both Johnny Depp & Tim Burton (OK, so Ed Wood freaked me out a bit. It was odd. Really odd.)...Sweeney Todd the Demon Barber of Fleet Street. What are the chances of me getting to see it in the theater? Slim to none. I'd be flabbergasted if it even came to the Theater in our town. They only have 3 cinemas, and they're usually reserved for blockbusters & cartoons. The only thing that may get it here is Mr. Depp.

This is for you, Art.

Ladies and gentlemen, may I have your attention please?

Are your nostrils a quiver and tingling as well at the delicate lashes ambrosial smell?

Yes they are I can tell

Well, ladies and gentlemen, that aroma enriching the bees

Is like nothing compared to its succulent source as the gourmets among you will tell you of course

Ladies and gentlemen you can't imagine the rapture in store

Just inside of this door!

There you'll sample Mrs. Lovett's meat pies

savory and sweet pies as you'll see

You, who eat pies Mrs. Lovett's meat pies conjure up the treat pies used to be.

Although, I wonder if this will fall under the new "darkness in, darkness out" list of things to boycott and/or avoid...hmmmm

I'm looking very much forward to this movie. And my local friends think I'm a wacko for it. Nobody plays a character like him.
