How I'm Whiling Away the Hours

Watching this clip that combines a favorite aria ("Saper Bramate" -- the mandolin serenade from Paisiello's "Il Barbiere di Siviglia") and still clips from an all-time favorite movie -- Kubrick's(via Thackeray) "Barry Lyndon."

I love this stuff! Barry Lyndon is a gorgeous musical and painterly excursion, as well as a great story. And Paisiello's barber of Seville, which predates Rossini by a hundred years or so, is lovely.

Listen, watch, and be amazed.
