"The Witch Doctor"

Took the little ones off to the movies on this snowy afternoon. Or they took me...I wanted to go see the new monster movie, Cloverfield but the kids wanted to see Alvin!!!!...then once we were there I remembered I was a huge chipmunk fan back in the old neighborhood as a kid in the sixties. The movie wasn't all that bad. I thought my colorful childhood cartoon memories were going to be destroyed but the story and the actors weren't bad. Dave Seville was cool and Ian Hawke the mean music biz mogul was very good...Jason Lee and David Cross star. I believe Cross is Ginsberg in "I'm Not There" as well which I have not seen yet...Oddly positiioned on the wall of Seville's messy musicians home was a poster of Bob Dylan from "Time Out Of Mind". My 5 year old got a little restless and she took me for a chase through the movie megaplex past video arcades and concession stands and endless entrance doors to the maze of theaters. Suddenly I looked up at the end of a corridor and saw the spooky poster for "I'm Not There"... The big sillouette of Bob (Cate) with a cigarette and the cast list. Heath Ledger's name looked sureal. I noticed that the poster had a small tear in the bottom. "I'm Not There" was not currently playing at the cineplex...We got back into the show at the end as people were leaving. Never knew what thay were singing about the Wich doctor 'til now...

I Told The Witch Doctor You Didn't Love Me true!
And Then The Witch Doctor He Told Me What To Do!
He Said That:

Ooh to the eeh the ooh the ahah to the ting to the tang the wallawalla bingbang
Ooh to the eeh the ooh the ahah ting tang wallawalla bingbang
Ooh to the eeh the ooh the ahah to the ting to the tang the wallawalla bingbang
Ooh to the eeh the ooh the ahah ting tang wallawalla bingbang

Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers Movie

Yes, a group in the UK is trying to get a stop-motion Freak Brothers Movie 'Grass Roots' off the ground, financed by means of public offerings of shares under the Government's Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS).

You can watch a pilot and find out about how to invest in this enterprise here.

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.

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]
