Consider this an hommage to Gloria Swanson though the voice is Elizabeth Taylor’s and the text is care of Gore Vidal’s screen adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ Suddenly Last Summer. Absurdity reigns as it all segues into some lusty passages from Carmina Burana. The screaming, rambling and singing of this short little show-stopper all made its way into the long-form zona pellucida the following year. Pure madness.

Swansong, 2005
