tonight, Rear Window, a 50’s flick by Hitchcock starring Jimmy Stewart and Grace Kelly. Way cool, I’d forgotten how much “harder” it is to watch a movie that is mostly dialogue and expression, not relying solely on special effects and technology to keep your attention. I mean, you really get absorbed with the characters and different lives in this flick. I loved it when, in talking about Jimmy, one of the characters tells him he doesn’t get more excited about a petting party than he does a civil service exam. Ya gotta be my age or older to get that one.
I guess I should mention that I joined Netflix yesterday. And BAM!, just like that, I have 3 movies in the mailbox today. Now that is service. The empty nest thing might be getting to me, especially since I don’t watch TV except on very, very rare occasions – think hurricane. Anyways, I logged in to their site and there are so many choices! My “queue” is littered with movies from the 50’s and 60’s plus SRV and U2 concerts.
I have an ISO audit at the plantation tomorrow, pretty much the same excitement as watching grass grow. I need to go see some live music! Quickly.
Speaking of music, The Dude put up a few clips from his experimentation with his new Roland Fantom. They’re pretty good, you can check them out here: Akelas Biggins. Just think – you can say you heard his clips before he became a star!
