    I love the opening of this first movement, "Departure" of George Crumb's 'Black Angels.' 

    The opening moments are called "Night of the Electric Insects."

    Don't quote me but I'm pretty sure the entire work is inspired by the Vietnam War.

    I always like the Kronos Quartet.

    Hey!!

    Ha!

    The upper left portion of your question image -- about the comic books -- immediately I thought of one of my favorite movies "Creepshow" --

    The clip here is about two minutes. If you can't watch all of it, start at the 1:25 mark --

    "I'll teach you to throw away my comic books!"

    * Ohm.... ohm ... ohm ... (electrical meditation chant)

    * They say if you want to steal the Queen's joules you'll have to kilowatt.

    * Watt, you think my electrical humor is old fashioned?  Fine, I'll try to find something current.

      Drat, I was going to say that I cannot comply with your request because I don't want to shock you, but someone else already used that verb, which prevents me from executing my plan, grrrrrrrr. This has me all wired up, I try to plug into my feelings, but it's as if some sort of blackout has overcome me, or as if I can't access the grid, or as if the power feed has diminished. In general, "electric" is a difficult thing to talk about, to just dream up something to say about.

    I do not have the capacity to resist 'er. To do so, I will have to transform myself if I wish to di ode. I had a brother who had a sex change procedure. Now he is a trans sister.

    I'm sure some of you oldtimers remember the 'Ready Kilowatt'  guy who was used by many electric companies across America. This post was edited by bhwilson at December 2, 2018 6:22 AM MST

    Jalen Hurts had the effect of electricity as he sucked the air out of the Georgia Bull Dogs Saturday in SEC championship game.  So so proud.  Roll Tide!! This post was edited by Thriftymaid at December 3, 2018 1:27 PM MST
