Short Friday: Ballet mécanique

Ah, Friday, it's a vague concept . . . and days of the week, they're all social constructions anyway, right?

O.k., maybe not. But to make up for the lateness, here's an extra-long short, Ballet mécanique, directed by Fernand Léger and Dudley Murphy and scored by George Antheil. The visuals are pretty standard dadaist fare, but the music! I don't work out, but if I did, this is the music I'd put on.
