THE TROUBLE WITH MR. WOLF /

Posted in Uncategorized by chrisnadebruyn on May 10, 2010

DAEDALUS FASHIONED TWO PAIRS OF WINGS OUT OF WAX AND FEATHERS FOR HIMSELF AND HIS SON. BEFORE THEY TOOK OFF FROM THE ISLAND, DAEDALUS WARNED HIS SON NOT TO FLY TOO CLOSE TO THE SUN, NOR TOO CLOSE TO THE SEA. OVERCOME BY THE GIDDINESS THAT FLYING LENT HIM, ICARUS SOARED THROUGH THE SKY CURIOUSLY, BUT IN THE PROCESS HE CAME TOO CLOSE TO THE SUN, WHICH MELTED THE WAX. ICARUS KEPT FLAPPING HIS WINGS BUT SOON REALIZED THAT HE HAD NO FEATHERS LEFT AND THAT HE WAS ONLY FLAPPING HIS BARE ARMS. AND SO, ICARUS FELL INTO THE SEA IN THE AREA WHICH BEARS HIS NAME, THE ICARIAN SEA NEAR ICARIA, AN ISLAND SOUTHWEST OF SAMOS.

More is a film directed by Barbet Schroeder, released in 1969 starring Mimsy Farmer and Klaus Grünberg, dealing with heroin addiction on the island of Ibiza. It features a soundtrack written and performed by Pink Floyd, released as the album Soundtrack from the Film More.
