soundThe Guardian reports this morning that plans are afoot to open a The Sound of Music museum in Salzburg, Austria. I have no words for the horror that filled me upon reading this story. Could someone please explain why we need a museum honoring what is possibly the most cloying, awful, nails-on-a-chalkboard movie ever win to multiple Oscars? I mean, I've reached a point in my life where I actually feel my gorge rise when I see a mountain meadow - this is what that cursed film has done to me. Now, don't get me wrong. I'm sure the vonTrapps were wonderful, brave people, and I fully support their singing, Nazi-fleeing selves. But does the world really need to encourage the 300,000 people who visit Salzburg annually to "to take tours of sites featured in the movie and participate in sing-alongs of famous melodies from the film"?! Really, people. I think that question answers itself.
