buzz off to you too

here's a little tidbit for you. sometimes the greatest moments in this life are accidental. sometimes you are lucky enough to capture them on film. during the shooting of jim jarmusch's down by law (1986), roberto benigni was supposed to approach tom waits in this scene and say "that's sad and beautiful music". being benigni's first english language film, he misspoke the line as "it's a sad and beautiful word" which waits also misheard as "it's a sad and beautiful world". cinema's shortest game of telephone resulted in one of my favorite scenes in all of this world. love your accidents, folks.
