Merry Christmas!

A little off topic of the merry making, Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence! is a movie David Bowie starred in with Tom Conti and Ryuichi Sakamoto. My favorite part of the movie starts around 7:38. The guards are taking Jack Celliers away to be executed. He does a mime of... you'll just have to watch. The movie is based on the novel: The seed and the Sower by Laurens van der Post.

here's a mash up of MCML by Ryushi Sakamoto and a Japanese singer, Utada.

and here's the instrumental with Ryushi Sakamoto live.
