FILMED AT THE CHURCH OF ST. FRANCIS9.30 A.M. SERVICE, PALM SUNDAY, 2010 — 11 Comments

  1. Outrageous costumes, crazy sets, and studio-recorded chorus singing dubbed onto the soundtrack … they don’t make ’em like that any more. Love it! (Wonder if I could get away with wearing a big black onion on my head for the Eucharist?)

  2. I am sure your abs are just as good, but don’t you get cold in that outfit in England, or has the weather warmed up already?

  3. It is a well known fact throughout Britain that people from Newcastle Upon Tyne don’t feel the cold. And if we were to, being English, we would never admit it.

    Please note that “being English” does not apply to poncey, London media types who would whinge about it being cold if somebody switched an electric light off.

    It is rather chilly today, now you mention it.

    I’m glad MP has got around to calling me “poncey”. It shows he understands how refined my tastes are.

  5. One can be both Austarlian, or even Australian, and also a Londoner. It’s the nice thing about London.

    Actually the most thoroughgoing poncey Islington-ish types in the media I know are the ones who originally came from up north.

  6. We’re hardy types in East Anglia as well, despite our nearness to the London metropolis. We have to be, as we’re first in line for the frigid Scandinavian blasts that come whistling over the North Sea. You’ve not felt the cold until you’ve stood bare-kneed on the beach at Dunwich, the “newcleeair” reactor to your right and the Southwold lighthouse and Adnams brewery to your left. It gusts right up every crevice!

  7. Ah, such a bucolic scene you conjure up–the sea, the smocks, the smell of the hops…and the nuclear power plant.

    I love the Superstar music. Sometime I’ll go to a church where they make this part of its Palm Sunday service. We came close this year by having a Lenten series on how different films portray Jesus in the temptations, the Last Supper, the Passion… Our seminarian is a Bible movie collector, and she and the rector led the conversation (after a small pot luck supper) every week.

    Ho-sanna-hey-sanna in procession for Palm Sunday.

    It’s been done. He’s in another parish and onto something else by now, as ought you to be…
