... yesterday, I re-watched Mr. Holland's Opus... what a great movie... yeah, I know it is sappy and romantic... sue me, I was on the Absinthe again... in any case, two things leaped off the screen for me... and, maybe it was just my addled state, but Rowena Morgan was a total toy... of course, Holland did the right thing... hell, he had every opportunity to lay her across that piano, and work it till she squealed.. but, hey... I'm just sayin'.... he didn't, and that was noble...

... anyway, the other thing about the movie?... music, people... it makes life so much richer.... with that in mind, after the movie, I started digging out the old Gershwin... George and Ira were Gods, pure and simple... you want proof?... check it, gentle ones.... that song, quite simply, is timeless....

... what brought on this mood?... ahhh... we all have our soft moments... but, have no fear... I'm off to watch the matinee of Alien Vs Predator this afternoon... blood, carnage, and screaming archaeologists.... it'll have me back to fighting trim in no time...

Real Absinthe or fake Absinthe?

Hemingway loved to write on Absinthe.

..why, Chris, surely you know that real Absinthe is illegal... heh... I was on "Absinthe Refined"... interesting buzz to say the least.. but, without the poison.. I was enjoying the legal kind, friend

OK - I'm confused.

Are you saying "fake" Absinthe like the guys who give betting advice say "for entertainment purposes only"?

Just give me a nod.

The legal Absinthe is like watching Last Tango in Paris with all the sex scenes deleted - it makes no sense.

Re: the music... I just LOVE that woman's voice. I *so* want to buy her a drink after the show :-)

Mr Holland's Opus made me cry because I am a total pussy at heart. Think of the poor guy who loves music the way he does having a DEAF SON??? That broke my heart.

The fact that neither one of my children seem interested in music bothers me, too. I wish they wanted to play, because I could teach them a lot. But I love it and they don't.

I can identify with Mr. Holland.
