The saying about the Phoenix is that it rises from the ashes, but it doesn’t seem likely that the folks who originally piloted this boat realized just how many fires it would be through. Outside, the boat looks like a hunk of junk. The hull is dented and patched in several spots, scorch marks mar the nose, and most of the parts have been torn off and replaced more time than most can count. The insides are ordered well enough, although the engine has seen better days and the control panels have burn marks from the fires that have occurred on the inside.

This video seems as though I were deliberately trying to pair up two very incongruous media. The song is “They Can’t Take That Away from Me,” a George Gershwin tune sung here by Robbie Williams and Rupert Everett. The clips come from Firefly, a space western that has nothing to do with the works of Gershwin. Despite the fact that they seem to have so little to do with each other, I’m quite happy with how this whimsical little video turned out. Click on the picture Jayne Cobb to download the video.
