Yesterday when I first set out to post this entry, something looked wrong. I sat in front of the screen puzzled, crinkling my forehead. I erased the title a few times, but replaced it soon after. It was something I wanted to say. The video clearly reminded me of one particular group. But this title, The Chorus of a Shakesperean Tragedy? Didn't seem right. But I posted it anyway.
Then this morning, whilst in the shower it hit me....Greek Tragedy. The oddest little thing finally rose to the foreground of my brain, almost twelve hours later. Random shit at random times. I'm not changing the title. It irks me that the reference would have been extremely intelligent has fallen stupidly to the side, but it's how my brain works at times.
I have to describe ordinary objects in order to get the word. "That agile creature that hisses and purrs. You know...the one that isn't a dog?" It makes for a good laugh but frustrates the hell outta me.
So...yes, I know there is a big ol' mistake at the very beginning of this post. But what I meant to say was that group of people in plays like Oedipus Rex that wail and cry and emphasize the tragic outcome of those heroes from that distant ancient land also known as Hellas! Yeah.
