I'm going slightly mad

Wow, this month's Funky Friday was crazy! Don't expect this blog post to be any less crazy! It's completely nuts! Wooooh! I'm screaming at the computer like a crazy wolf man!

I'm so crazy that I'm not even going to ask you what you thought about Dr. Gilchrist and his crazy friends and the crazy escape plan! What I am going to do is post a crazy video made by four lads from England that changed the world, they created pop music as we know it, they're the biggest best band ever, they are of course the Fab Four - QUEEN!

Not only did QUEEN invent HARD ROCK, they also wrote a song that changed the way we think about mental illness. Here is the video. The highlight for me is of course Freddy Mercury's performance, which eerily foreshadows Heath Ledger's Joker in Batman Dark Knight. I also like the AWESOME guitar solo where Brian May becomes a penguin. Genius. Watch and enjoy! And remember, if the elevator tries to break you down - GO CRAZY!

The mad thing about Freddy Mercury is that his parent didn't urge him to wear braces when he was a child. Had he grown up in America we might understand it. Families there have to pay for braces themselves, dental treatment is not covered by health insurance companies. But in Great Britain braces for children are covered by the federal health insurance system. There is no way to find excuses. He had horsy teeth. At least it doesn't do any harm to his success as an artist.

That's my whacky comment.

Sorry, [..]it DIDN'T do any harm to his success as an artist[..]. May he rest in peace, the good guy. I still can remember the day I learned that he passed was a day of grief for me....

Apart from the music this song is a treasure trove for us English learners with idioms around health and illness.
e.g. "You're not quite in the pink"

Everyone looking for expressions to moan about his health can find something here.
