Mercury Rev "Opus 40"

I'm pasting in this YouTube video of Mercury Rev's "Opus 40" as part of my one-man campaign to introduce the Rev to a few more people:

Great song, great video. If I made music videos, they might look like this. Probably not, though. Who knows? Opus 40 is an actual place I've visited, in Ulster County, NY. It's a huge stone sculptural environment that took 40 years to build. There are various other references in this song that you may be able to decode, but that's not really the point. Once you've done that, all that's left is vapor, the magic is gone.
