To quote Chekov in 2009's Star Trek, "I can do this. I can do this." This is already much farther than I made it my first time back in the 90s. I can handle Melville's words!
This is also making me want to dig through my boxes of LPs and find my copy of Bernard Herrmann's Moby-Dick cantata from 1938. But it's easier to find my CD copy of other nautical music, Bronislau Kaper's absolutely huge, thundering, melodic score to the 1962 adaptation of Mutiny on the Bounty. This is MORE THAN FINE accompaniment.
