Be a Producer

I hadn't seen Mystery in half a year or so. Lots to catch up on.

"How have you been?"

"Great, you?"

Early On a Sunday Morning

On Where Pianos Roam

I'm halfway through watching the movie Slumdog Millionaire.  So far, it's pretty darn awesome.  I can see why it won Best Picture at the Oscars.  I'm looking forward to seeing how it all ends. Last night, I watched Clint Eastwood's latest film "Gran Torino", and I really liked it.  It is a classic Eastwood film with, surprisingly, a lot of laughs, and some incredibly serious moments.  Eastwood does not disappoint with this one.  It also features him and his son Kyle's piano playing and compositions.  There's a really beautiful song in the end credits that Eastwood co-wrote with Jamie Cullum.  It's hugely well done. Both of these movies deal with people who confront dangerous adversity in their lives and the lives of their loved ones.  They are inevitably successly, but in unusual, and oftentimes tragic, ways. I have more thoughts on this, but as this will be a very busy day, I can't seem to get them together. I would very much recommend both of these films.  They are both very endearing and tough to watch.   Ultimately, there's some great film-making going on with them. More to come soon. -gordo
