A Milestone for Dark Side of the Moon

A mix of Pink Floyd, Aardman Animation, and Tom Stoppard is something I am powerless to miss.  The creation is a play written by Stoppard to go with Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon, an album that spent over 800 weeks on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart, and which 40th birthday is being celebrated this year.  It will be broadcast by the BBC on Monday.

To go with it, Aardman (the Wallace and Gromit guys) put together a mildly mind-blowing (more of a muffled, contained explosion?  Look, I want to be the one person who isn't wildly raising your expectations on a regular basis.) teaser video that is much in keeping with the surreal images that have represented the band over the years.
