Play Dead!

I’m still adjusting to rejoining the labor force; I got home awfully late this evening, and will be up at cockcrow to do it all again. As a result, all I have to offer for tonight is what seems to be a truly creepy video clip, sent along by my friend Eugene Jen, who remains an inexhaustible source of Internet arcana. This macabre flick, a bit of 1940 Soviet mad-scientist mayhem, is called “Experiments in the Revival of Organisms”, and is narrated, quite astonishingly, by the great biologist J.B.S. Haldane (who, if you will forgive me for being catty – it’s Fashion Week, after all – could have spent just a bit more time in wardrobe). The organism in question, it appears, is a dog.

I haven’t even got past the intro yet myself; let’s enjoy it together. I’ll make some popcorn.
