Movies That Everyone Should See: “Almost Famous”

Blue jean baby, L.A. lady, seamstress for the band
Pretty eyed, pirate smile, you’ll marry a music man
Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand
And now she’s in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand

Jesus freaks out in the street
Handing tickets out for God
Turning back she just laughs
The boulevard is not that bad

Piano man he makes his stand
In the auditorium
Looking on she sings the songs
The words she knows the tune she hums

But oh how it feels so real
Lying here with no one near
Only you and you can hear me
When I say softly, slowly

Hold me closer tiny dancer
Count the headlights on the highway
Lay me down in sheets of linen
you had a busy day today

Blue jean baby, L.A. lady, seamstress for the band
Pretty eyed, pirate smile, you’ll marry a music man
Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand
And now she’s in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand

We Bought a Zoo

“We Bought a Zoo” is the heartwarming story of a father and his two children, who are struggling with the death of their wife/mother. When the boy is expelled from school, the father knows that they need to move, in order to get a fresh start.

The dream home they come across, however, has a unique set of challenges.

It’s a zoo.

In an act of impulse/courage/stupidity/serendipity, the father (played by Matt Damon) decides the place is exactly what they need and makes the purchase, in spite of the fact they know nothing about running a zoo, and the fact that the zoo is in a state of disrepair.

To steal one of Damon’s own lines, “Let the healing begin!”

Random Rants: Call Off the Dogs. Cameron Crowe is NOT Going to do a Sequel to “Say Anything”

I was nervous, too.

A month ago exactly, actually, I wrote a post where I kind of lost my shit because I heard that Cameron Crowe was toying with the possibility of doing a sequel to “Say Anything”.

Good news that I just read courtesy of Slash Film, who point out that IFC.com got him to set the record straight. Apparently he was just bullshitting with the person who had asked the question, and even though he had discussed it with John Cusack, it was a long time ago, and he has no intention of revisiting his classic characters for real.

Random Rants: Cameron Crowe Mentions the Possibility of a “Say Anything” Sequel

This post began as a small “News Worth Sharing” post, but quickly got out of hand. Once I was done, I had to create a new category – Random Rants. I hope I don’t have to add to it often.

Surfing the net today I discovered an article on slashfilm.com that quotes Cameron Crowe as saying that there may possibly be a sequel to “Say Anything”. His comments, made during the annual Television Critics Association press tour, are quoted as follows:

“I do kind of think there might be another chapter to that. I’ve thought about it from time to time and talked to John Cuasack about it. Lloyd Dobler might be back. It’s the only thing I’ve ever written that I might consider doing that with.”

To which I say, “Oh my dear God, please %#$&ing no.”
