Innovation Friday: What IF the Viola Made It to the Silver Screen?

If you aren’t into the X-Men, this blog will make little sense to you. But then if you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you’ll find it completely natural that this blog makes little sense to you. If you really don’t know who the X-Men are, image Google-ing “X-Men” should provide you some interesting results, heh heh.

It turns out that the next X-Men movie installment will reveal that violists are indeed mutants.

And Rogue is a vindictive violinist, pressuring the Professor: "Is it time to find the violists? Can we find the violists? All of them? Can I have a popsicle?" The actress later commented that in preparation for her role, she took a road trip with family, asking, "Are we there yet? Are we there yet?" every five minutes.

In other movie news, movie producers have commented that there is no credence to the rumours that the hit movie The Red Violin will have a sequel titled The Purple Viola. A source who insisted on anonymity said, "After the racy scenes of The Red Violin and the scandalous nature of cello movie Hilary and Jackie, we found it difficult to maintain the R rating with a viola-based movie – which would obviously have to either be of the slapstick or horror genres. Anywhoohoo, Meryl Streep’s imitations of violin-playing in Music From the Heart were bad enough to pass as viola playing in a register-lowered DVD version."
