You have discovered the digital edition of Body Parts and Flying Things, the controversial new rock opera from the New Jersey supergroup, A Halo Called Fred. A work so inspirational, Chicago Sun Times film critic Roger Ebert has yet to find the words necessary to comment on its profundity.
Act 1 is the tragic tale of our hero’s decent from jubilation to despair, as his narcissistic tendencies and love of gravy fries lead him down the bungee paved road of desperation, as he discovers the flaws in the childhood repression of his psychosexual development. The act closes in a particularly moving scene in which he attempts to dye his hair plaid with a single packet of dye.
In Act 2, he tries to divide his real world from his fantasy world, and attempts to rebuild one of them (we don't know which) with Elmer's glue and popsicle sticks. The curtain falls as Isolde dies in his arms.
Melvin Toast, January, 1995
