    Al Gore brings you An Inconvenient Opera

    Yes, that's correct. Al Gore's movie, An Inconvenient Truth, is being turned into an opera. Link

    Obligatory!

    And then, after being turned into "An Inconvenient Truth -- The Opera" and and then dumbed down to "An Inconvenient Truth -- The Broadway Musical" the world will finally be ready for "An Inconvenient Truth -- On Ice"!

    If it is still possible to have an indoor ice rink anywhere . . .

    "An Inconvenient Truth -- On Ice". Absolutely brilliant!!!! I was wondering how to work the polar bears into the opera, but the ice show is a slam dunk (so to speak).

    For the grand finale, the ice will melt and all the ice dancers will drown.

    As far as rinks - if you can have NHL teams in San Jose and Tampa Bay, you can have ice anywhere.

    I'd watch that. Opera's cool, and Mr. Gore is a great guy, so I'm sure it would be fun.
    (Yes, a teenager did just say that she finds opera cool. You may run to the bunkers.)

    Maybe Archie, but I think Edith would be fine with teenagers liking opera.

    Re: Al Gore brings you An Inconvenient Opera

    The movie An Inconvenient Truth has been edited for screenings in the Midwest. It now runs a total of about 20 minutes since all the blood and gore were taken out.

    I understand a crossover sequel is in the works: An Inconvenient Truth vs. Predator

    i'm more worried that you think AlGore is a great guy.


    i wonder, will he be in the opera? that would really keep the crowd electrified and on the edge of their seats the whole time.
    he should get Mel Brooks to stage the Broadway musical version of it- then, at least, it would be mildly entertaining and have it's own fair share of Jewish jokes thrown in for good measure..
    how many carbon credits does one need to buy to offset the staging of an opera, broadway musical, or former broadway-musical-on-ice?

    Ok, the thread is now at the edge of the slippery slope, I suggest you all back carefully away from it before you slide.

    Edited to add that this was written before BigDon pulled it back.

    They turned it into a browser? Does it use Ask Jeeves to find its sources?

    what, that someone finds the two most effective sedatives ever invented -AlGore and opera- to be entertaining and cool?
    yeah, i'd have to say that's a bad sign and does not bode well for the future when the aliens come swooping down (or in thru the window..) and take over while everyone is asleep after an AlGore opera....

    The Hills All Have Died ...

    I can just picture the opening of it too. The scene is a sere, blasted hilltop. Tipper Gore runs over the crest of the hill and bursts into song ...

    Ok, looks like this thread just can't keep away from the slope.
    I'm closing this thread before it slides further into political ad-homming.

    Everything I need to know I learned through Googling.

    Loved the movie, but...I just threw up in my mouth a little. (:P

    Still waiting for the Planet of the Apes musical, myself.
