we saw "Across the Universe" at the local complex on Friday night (after pigging out on carrot cake). This was a very different movie. Beatles songs incorporated into a "Hair" kinda groove, following a young couple through the turbulent sixties. Bono was "The Walrus" and Joe Cocker had a cameo. I was pleasantly surprised. When I review a movie, my first criteria is "was I entertained?" As much as I hate to admit it, I was.The next night it was a "Blockbuster" night. We rented "The Fantastic Four and the Silver Surfer", which was fun. (I could watch Jessica Alba floss). we went to get a pizza then, "300". Whoa. Really great movie and chocked full of blood and guts, kids. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Went back to the hotel and watched "American Beauty" on HBO for the first time. Yikes. Another classic. and.I.couldn't.sleep.
Selling radio is one of the hardest jobs I have ever had. Next to grinding combine wheels at the John Deere Foundry. That was hard too.
I spent some time with my friend Tom at the greatest record store ever, "Now Hear This" in downtown Kirkwood. He is about to go out of business, laying off the only employee he had. Hard times for a lot of us who used to be somebody.
Happy birthday Jess. You make me proud.
Still pissed at The Eagles..
