Hey Chresti: I suppose that is a movie. I too love Kronos, not every album but lots...

Kronos is almost a cliche...because - they're actually extraordinary.

I've seen The Fountain but I cannot recall a thing about it. I think there was a magic tree or something.

The Plague Dogs is an animated film from 1982. John Hurt provides one of the voices. Bay Area synth guru/co-founder of SF's Different Fur Studios.

I found a promo 7" for Plague Dogs a couple of years ago.

I just recently learned that Harry Dean Stanton sings on the Care Bears Movie soundtrack. My mind is broken.
