Smashing Pumpkins - "Tonight, Tonight"

This is my favorite Smashing Pumpkins song. Maybe a bit obvious, but what can ya do? It's a damn good song, with one of the coolest videos ever.

Here's the wonderful classic silent film that inspired the video, Voyage dans la lune:

I must have watched this video over 200 times when I was 11 years old. It's really captivating. Thanks for posting this.

I don't know why I have not already recommended this to you, but this is a DVD you would love:

I was in a Tempest parody this summer, and we used a clip of the 1908 silent film in the production. The director showed it to us in rehearsal and it instantly amazed me. It's one of those pieces of film that makes you think the first people that saw it in 1908 must have been terrified. They must have thought the filmmakers were sorcerers.

Anyway, I think that you, as a lover of film and Shakespeare, would get a kick out of it.
