with his silly grin
he carries a martini
made of bathtub gin

Waiting to be let in
And were all in the bathtub now

"Music is a spiritual expression of what's in your heart. Music as a way of getting rich is a pretty new thing, and I often wonder if the mega-bucks glitzy atmosphere is making the quality of music suffer. You have to work really hard to get around that and remember why you're in it in the first place: because you have to be. It's like an addiction. You can't go a day without picking up your guitar. To me, the only commercial goals that are really valid are, 'Boy, I wish I didn't have to go to work. I wish I could do this all the time."
-Trey Anastasio

Love, is a burning flame...

Seems like this weekend everywhere I went there was a tribute to Johnny Cash. I was playing his music, Windowsill Wendy, The Boy and I watched a VH1 Storytellers, Polo Sport did a rendition of "Ring of Fire" Saturday night, and even my neighbors got into it on Sunday, blaring his greatest hits all afternoon. Right on.

I saw Once upon a time in Mexico this weekend and thought it sukked. I liked Desperado, but this movie seemed really choppy and unbalanced. Antonio, Salma, and Mr. Depp all looked great, but I didn't care for the movie as a whole. There were ridiculous fight scenes that took everything that is bad about the Charlies Angels fight scenes and nothing that is good about using stunts. The story and dialogue was funny and clever at parts, but it always seemed like the next scene ruined the one before. I am starting to believe that filmmaking and storytelling is a lost art. Watching the movie this weekend I could tell that tons of money was spent on sets and stunts and big name actor salaries...but the money would be much better spent on some more writers and developing some talent on the direction side. Just because we went to see the movie doesn't mean that it was good...Hollywood, wake up. If I wasn't with a big group of people, I would have walked out about 40 minutes into it.
