Ledger Note

He was a good friend of Ben Harper as well, and produced one of his videos. Sad day.

I'm Not There

Saw this one this weekend. I loved it. Uses different actors to portray different parts of Dylan's persona. Would be confusing to someone who wasn't a Dylan fan and know his history. But to me it was fascinating on so many levels. Sad about Ledger, looked like he was going for the art and not the fame and money.

The Illusionist

I enjoyed escaping into a magical mystery movie that made me laugh and made me cry as the story circled around the other side.

Once

I loved this film. Has anyone else seen it? All music lovers, which means everyone on this site should see it.

Here is the intro from Wikipedia.

Once is a 2006 Irish musical film written and directed by John Carney. Set in Dublin, this naturalistic drama stars musicians Glen Hansard (of popular Irish rock band The Frames) and Markéta Irglová as fictional struggling musicians. Collaborators prior to making the film, Hansard and/or Irglová composed and performed all but one of the original songs in the movie.[1]

The film has received awards[2] and extremely enthusiastic reviews.[3][4] Shot for only $160,000,[5] it was very successful,[6] earning substantial per-screen box office averages in the United States.[7]

Claypool Comes to America!

Went to All Good in 2005 and Les was absolutely amazing! I've seen him about 3 or 4 times but whatever version of himself, he was then, was outrageous (I don't remember what he was calling his band at that festival). Even Gabby La La's playing, in that band, was incredible. I just remember her playing sitar like a possessed alien, while Les melted my mind - totally psychedelic!
I'm ready for a good movie that is pure ENTERTAINMENT.

yeah, me too

From what I can tell, Deadheads are deeply divided on ol' Les, but I'm a fan. I happened to be working the Bammies one year when Primus played; I walked out to the front of the stage at a random moment and my jaw pretty much hit the floor. Mind you I don't claim to understand the dude, but I get a a big kick out of him, and I loved it the time he opened for Phil at the Greek.
