Revisited a favorite over the weekend...
This was one of the last movies I saw in the theatre before moving to Japan, and I think I may have seen it three times (in the theatre, that is...don't ask me how many times I've seen it now)! Great stuff.
I watched it about six months ago, thinking I was in the mood, and that time it struck me that it didn't hold up very well and perhaps it wasn't working for me anymore.
But I can safely say, after watching it this weekend it's still a huge amount of fun and looks and sounds great on my system. (Though I still wish I had a subwoofer and center speak like we had in Austin!) Maybe I was feeling too cynical last time...it is certainly more than a little over the top, after all.
But with all that style, I think it can stay in my top ten.
Sang a new song in addition to Easy Silence at my lesson last week. Irritatingly, he loved the song itself...
(Apparently it was written for the live action Charlotte's Web?) Anyway, it totally sounds religious and I know that's why he ate it up. But I really like the song and it's easy for me to sing, so oh well.
There are Jesus pamphlets by the door, for fuck's sake.
I'm debating whether or not to sing Lubbock or Leave It, which has more than a few things to say about hypocrisy...plus it's hard not to identify with a song that starts out, "Dust bowl, Bible belt, Got more churches than trees..." If you have driven anywhere near my neighborhood, you know what an understatement that is. But it would be a hard one for me vocally, I think.
Anyhoo. I'd just like some more constructive criticism beyond, "Drop your jaw." But whatever.
