I was once a normal kid
Till the Devil came down and flipped my lid
He gave me a switchblade and he gave me a muse
Then he vomited acid all over my shoes
I still love how Andrews was trying to figure out what he was even talking about.
I've actually been to the hotel in Estes Park where they shot The Shining. Pretty cool.
I read a breakdown/photo essay on the different hotels that were used as templates for the "Overlook". Kubrick basically sent out a photographer to shoot every hotel -- inside and out -- in the Western United States, but yeah... Kubrick pretty much refused to leave the UK after like 1968. The helicopter shots and some of the matte templates were done by a second unit.
Devin Townsend is a ****ing genius.
Also had the cool opportunity of staying there too. Supposedly haunted as well.
