Picnic at Hanging Rock


This classic is getting a remake apparently.

I was obsessed with the original Peter Weir film (more at this previous post) after seeing it a rep house theatre back in the early 80s. I tried to find out if the story was based on actual events. I even ordered the book through a local book store.

Every few years I revisit the story and see what new developments there have been. Like when, following the author's death, a concluding but left out chapter, made its reappearance!

So much has happened since I last looked at this particular story including a movement to take references to the story and Miranda (one of the two girls who disappear) out of the interpretation for the actual Hanging Rock site. You can read more about that and other things here on Wikipedia.

And here now, is the latest development...a tv series....

Does it suck the air out of you?


the poison sits
just a little bit too close to you
do i make you uncomfortable
does it suck the air out of you

but i love you i do
and you love me too

the poison sits
with the words that i sing for you
oh how they seem to cling to you
and how i will sing for you

but i love you i do
and you love me too

the poison sits
every part of it embraces you
do you remember lonely too
oh how i'd be lost without you

and i love you i do
and you love me too

the poison sits
just a little bit too close to you
do i make you uncomfortable
does it suck the air out of you

but i love you i do
and you love me too

but i love you i do
and you love me too

ooooooooohhho oooohooo ooohoooo ooooohooo
oooohoooooh ooohoooh oohhhhooo oooohooooho

but i love you i do
and you love me too

Hey ho!

That's it man.

I'm done with the Halloween posting for 2017. If you're interested I'm posting over on the other seasonal blog now. Be warned, I'm somewhat more sentimental about that holiday.

Solstice in a month!!
