Not only is this fountain nice to look at, it is also nice to play with! The fountain is interactive. You can go up and re position all of the puppets. Evidently, the rooster on the top (whose head I have cut off in my picture) is a symbol of Napoleon’s love for Aachen.
“Night, Make My Day” – Casino Paradise
Music: William Bolcom Lyrics: Arnold Weinstein
Day made night when a total solar eclipse occurred on this day in 2010. This musical about the development of a casino in a quiet area by the sea includes this torch song crooned by a woman hoping for some fun. Like gambling, it can be enjoyed night and day, but unlike gambling, it can be enjoyed risk-free, so why not let this “Night…” make your day?
“Could We Start Again Please?” – Jesus Christ Superstar
Music: Andrew Lloyd Webber Lyrics: Tim Rice
This earnest request is sung by followers of Jesus after his betrayal in this rock opera based on stories of the religious figure’s life found in the New Testament. Think back to the first of this year. What resolutions have you abandoned by now? Ask yourself this question and maybe try for these goals one more time.
Anyone who knows me will tell you that I love a good Cloister. There is something about the marriage of indoor and outdoor, functionality and frivolity, privacy and exhibition, that just gets all of my inspiration gears turning. I love a good Cloister.
“Captain Jack” – Movin’ Out
Music and Lyrics: Billy Joel
Billy Joel’s dynamite songs provided the score for this jukebox musical about 1960’s youth told through dance. The captain referred to in this song is a drug dealer who gets character Eddie high. A different but just as sketchy Captain Jack was introduced on this day in 2003 when the first film in the Pirates of the Caribbean series was released.
