Fly me to the moon

This is another reason why Youtube is the best thing since the invention of chocolate.
I was actually looking for Julie London on Youtube, but there was not much to find, apart from a sensational b/w live appearance in Japan, which cannot be embedded. So I came across this selfmade mash-up. Its made out of footage from "Barbarella" and "2001" set to Julie´s wonderful rendition of "Fly me to the moon". It´s really, really good!

The sexy future fun of Barbarella versus Kubrick´s underlying message that the future will be boring, combined with the sultry space escapism of the well known pop standard is a great companion to todays J.G. Ballard-Quote: "Sex times technology equals the future".

Here is the link to "Julie in Japan". It will melt you!
