KLEM FM


That's Jimmy Page playing guitar on Donovan's 1966 song. Trippy visuals. Don't stare at it 'cause it might induce seizures.

h/t: "House" Words And Deeds

lyrics after the jump

When I look out my window,
Many sights to see.
And when I look in my window,
So many different people to be
That it's strange, so strange.

You've got to pick up every stitch,
You've got to pick up every stitch,
You've got to pick up every stitch,
Mmm, must be the season of the witch,
Must be the season of the witch, yeah,
Must be the season of the witch.

When I look over my shoulder,
What do you think I see?
Some other cat looking over
His shoulder at me
And he's strange, sure he's strange.

You've got to pick up every stitch,
You've got to pick up every stitch,
Beatniks are out to make it rich,
Oh no, must be the season of the witch,
Must be the season of the witch, yeah,
Must be the season of the witch.

The song has an early Doors vibe.

Heck of an epi. Imagine George Washington or Brutus Howell busting House's chops and that's the gist of it.

That series made Hugh Laurie a very rich man.

I haven't seen him in anything else - Jeeves and Wooster is not on Netflix. And neither is any Blackadder with Hugh Laurie in it. So it goes.

Great song. Very evocative. I think it was in that movie where Nicole Kidman played that school teacher who seduces one of her students to bribe him to kill her husband so she could be star. To Die For. I think.

Hugh Laurie was in the "Blackadder" season taking place in WWI.

How did Page achieve that sound? It almost sounds like the so-called electric sitars at the time.

I just started watching Mr. Pip. No idea where that one is going, but it's Hugh Laurie being Hugh Laurie, so there is that.

I do feel like watching "House" all over again. I may start binge-watching this weekend if I can wrest the remote from family members.

I don't know. He was a successful studio guitarist well before his Yardbirds and Led Zeppelin days and so probably knew all the tricks.

Laurie was very good in the recent miniseries, The Night Manager.

Sixty Grit said...

If you watch House look for the number of times "porphyria" and "protoporphyria" are mentioned in the DDx. If a drinking game existed based on those two words alone folks would be drunk after just a couple of episodes.

It seems as though every poor mook who wandered into PPTH got a spinal tap. And no, Christopher was not a Guest star on that series.

laurie plays in around the fourth or fifth season of veep as luis-drefuss' running mate. hillarious send up of 'house of cards,' where she nails craveness with spots of caring.

will watch night manager...love le carre, but the post cold war books dont do much for me, but laurie will make it sing i am sure.

chick i fairly recently binge watched house to the season the new folks came in. wasnt up for it, but will wait for my interest to spark some day and begin again. refused to rewatch the one where 13 accidentally kills the ___ .

Nice to see you around, deborah. Drop by and plant an incendiary political piece sometime.

Speaking of old familiar commenters, garage mahal returned to Althouse today. He wrote: One thing liberals have convinced me of - that conservatives never could - is that liberals are completely full of shit. I can't stand these fucking people.

Sixty Grit said...

Impressive. Wonder what caused him to write that. Was there a /sarc tag?

chickelit said...

I'm pretty sure he was serious.

Sixty Grit said...

Interesting, first because he seems to show a slight glimmer of intellectual activity rather than knee-jerk worship of progressive ideology, second because his deep love of all things communist lasted as long as it did.

Has he changed his name to John Doe yet?

deborah said...

No thanks, takes too much out of me. I'm a lover not a fighter.
