Okay, with recent YouTube posts about weed smoking, geezer giggling, and Super Bowl shuffling, I really feel like it's time to class up the joint a little.
Luckily, I've come across this really cool animated rendition of Puccini's Madame Butterfly.
It's amazing that the mere puppets can be used, along with Puccini's music, to express such great human beauty and tragedy (although the puppet sex scene made me blush a little and may not be safe for work). I especially admire the artist going "off the canvas" for the suicide scene at the end. Very poetic.
