“And it burns, burns, burns, the ring of fire…

ring burning

…the ring of fire.”

Yes, this post is absolutely without a point. I apologize. I accidentally cut my hand pretty badly on a kitchen knife today, and as a result lost a lot of blood and am slightly lightheaded. But still, wouldn’t it be totally cool if someone produced a Ring Cycle that was a combination of Wagner’s music and that of Johnny Cash? With Siegfried singing “The ring of fire” upon retrieving Brünnhilde from her firery prison? The lyrics fit perfectly!

And then Siegfried could go on to singing “Firery Prison Blues” featuring the lyrics “I killed a dragon in Niedhohl/just to watch him die”. And then he could deliver a moving performance of “It ain’t me, babe” to Brünnhilde when she tries to win him back at his and Gutrune’s wedding!!!

Wouldn’t that be awesome?

Wouldn’t it?

Oh, you people are no fun.
