    Gengis Blues
    Oh My! I wanna see that one. Have been fascinated by that two tone singing in Mongolian folk music for a couple of years now, ever since a saw a group perform in Paris. Found it one of the most incredible things had seen in a while, and the music was soo peaceful-eastern yet familiar to western ears. One of the musicials told me that the sound of the music is inspired from nature-like horse's hoofbeats on the tundra, blowing wind, etc. Sorry, I digressed, but to see someone else mentioning that double tone singing was a great suprise! Am looking out for that film now! That vid is just...wow! ********************************** Education: that which reveals to the wise, and conceals from the stupid, the vast limits of their knowledge. Mark Twain

    Capitalism: A Love Story
    Michael Moore's film about the origins of the current banking crisis and the movement of American workers to retake the rights previously afforded to them is excellent. It opens with Louis Louie playing as a gang of 5 rob a bank and goes through the life of families being evicted from their homes. The scene with the black sheriff of Wayne County (Detroit) declaring in a news conference that he is suspending all home evictions is poignant, as are Moore's revelations about big corporations buying life insurance policies on it's rank & file employees - it's called dead peasant insurance. Guess what? The corporations don't help out the poor workers survivors. Bob & Phil need to see this movie. It exposes how the biggest campaign contrbutors to Barak Obama were the big banks, Goldman being the #1. I dare anybody to just let go of their preconceptions about Micael Moore and go see this movie. It'll make you mad as hell (and possibly ready to stick up for your rights).

    after doing a little checking...
    I see that Paul used to open for Jerry and Merl at the Keystone. Recorded an album with them called New Train that wasn't released until 2000. He opened for Bobby and Ratdog in 2001, and passed away in 2005 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.

    Genghis Blues
    It's been out 10 years but if you haven't seen Genghis Blues this Oscar- nominated film is the story of a blind blues musician and his triumphant trek to the forgotten land of Tuva and the mysterious art of Khoomei, or throat singing, a seemingly impossible form of singing that produces multiple vocal tone simultaneously. Paul Pena, who has played with the likes of Bonnie Raitt, T-Bone Walker, John Lee Hooker, Jerry Garcia, Muddy Waters, and BB King travels to Tuva to live among the descendants of Genghis Khan and compete in their triennial Khoomei contest. I loved this documentary, there's a picture of Jerry near the start, I wonder if Sirius has any of those tapes? Amazing story, beautiful film.

    The Wackness
    Watched a film calle "The Wackness" about a teenage marijuana dealer in New York City back in 1994. Though not the main character, Mary-Kate Olsen delivers an Oscar-deserving performance as a 'shroomin hot Deadhead hippie chick. Sir Ben Kingsley does a great job as a wacky psychiatrist too.

    Just back from seeing Taking Woodstock, and am still slightly speechless. All caps necessary but I LOVED THIS FILM! Visually, the story, the characters, and especially the cinematography. Watch out for Wilma (Vilma) my FAVE character of all the film. I was not at Woodstock myself, and would be really curious about those opinions who actually were there-but heavy sigh of happiness on my part, and a giant grin!********************************** Education: that which reveals to the wise, and conceals from the stupid, the vast limits of their knowledge.

    went down to the mountain I was drinking some wine
    I watched a movie yesterday called "Bottle Shock". It's based on a true story and set in California's Napa Valley in 1976. In one scene a winery owner was yelling at his hippie son saying "Don't you have any ambition in life?" The son replies "Yeah, to see the Dead at the Cow Palace". Get prepared, there's gonna be a party tonight!

A movie from the Sundance Channel about an Irish cop named Sgt. Boyle. The opening scene is really good with a bunch of kids partying in a car going down a country road passing around a bottle of whisky.
