Two Things

So this weekend was wonderfully doused with rain. I couldn't praise God enough for that.  And in this weekend two things have captured my attention.

1. Buster Keaton

A silent screen comedian/actor/director/writer.  I didn't know much about him until today when I was watching TCM and they had his movies on screen. I love classic movies, but I don't really watch many silent films.  For Buster, though, I believe I will have to make an exception.  Truly funny, and his effects astound me.

2. String Quartet Music

I started listening to this genre of popular songs being re-done in string quartets since I discovered, "Black Hole Sun" by The Section Quartet.  Beautifully done to say the least.  So, Friday night when I was watching the Greatest Songs of the 2000's they played "Pocket Full of Sunshine" by Natasha Bedingfield. I like that song, and went to see how much it would cost me to download. (A $1.29 by the way.)  However, they had a string quartet version of it, and I was intrigued.

I've been enraptured by this movement all weekend.  If you haven't heard it before may I be the one to introduce it to you.

I went and saw this movie today with my dad and church family.  It was a wonderful movie, and I highly recommend it to anyone.  I have to say my favorite part though was the reaction from the audience.  In one scene a father is telling his fifteen year old girl that if the boy she likes doesn't respect her parents then he won't respect her.  There was a chorus of women going, "Mmmhmmm." and you could practically feel the head move that came with that.

This was a fabulous Christian-based film.  See it and support it if you get the chance.

And I can't wait until this movie comes out:

A Joyful Noise!

When I saw it had Dolly Parton AND Queen Latifa I was sold. I love both of those women.  There are some good movies coming out and I can't wait to see them!

And on a personal note, I'm starting a new blog. I don't know if I'll keep this one or not, but I feel the need to start a new one.  You can view it here: Defending Awkward (Since 1981)

Much Love,
