Post about one or all four – dealer’s choice!
Oh dear... so many possibilities!
Favorite underrated movie: It came out in 1972, and I still think it is one of the most beautiful films ever. Brother Sun, Sister Moon is about the early life of St. Francis. Directed by Franco Zeffirelli, the cinematography is spectacular and the music is by Donovan.
Favorite underrated band: The United States of America. Formed in 1967 it was one of the first experimental psychedelic rock bands that used electronic music and had a female vocalist.
Reality is only temporary...
Favorite underrated book: I'm sure I've mentioned it before...
Islandia, by Austin Tappan Wright.
"On his death, Austin Tappan Wright left the world a wholly unsuspected legacy. Among this distinguished legal scholar's papers were thousands of pages devoted to a staggering feat of literary creation - a detailed history of an imagined country complete with geography, genealogy, representations from its literature, language and culture. In a monumental labor of love Wright's wife and daughter culled from this material a thousand page novel, as detailed as J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-earth. Islandia has similarly become a classic touchstone for those concerned with the creation of imaginary worlds.
Islandia occupies the southern portion of the Karain Continent, which lies in the Southern Hemisphere. Its civilization is an ancient one, protected from outside intervention by a natural fortress of towering mountains. To this isolated country - this alien, compelling and totally fascinating world - comes John Lang, the American consul. As the reader lives with Lang in Islandia, as he comes to know this magnetic land, its unique people and its strange customs, he may find himself experiencing a feeling of envy, a wish, that he be permitted to spend the rest of his days in Islandia."
Amen to that last sentence.
Favorite underrate TV show: I really can't think of one.
