Slicing up Eyeballs

Un Chien Andalou is on Netflix. This excites me. For those of you that don't know, Un Chien Andalou is a silent surrealist film made by Salvador Dalí (and director Luis Buñuel), and the Pixies track Debaser makes reference to the film in both the chorus and lyrics such as "slicing up eyeballs..." It was playing on the projector screen behind the band when I saw them in Hollywood for one of the original shows that was part of what was supposed to be a "limited" Doolittle 20th anniversary tour. The band actually extended the tour over to many other international cities over the next couple years.

With all that said, I now plan to actually watch the film, which I'm sure will be a mind-bending experience.
