Anyone going to see Michael Jackson’s This is It? I am! Infact after tomorrow I will have the whole rest of the week off from Uni, so I am planning to catch up with some friends and it appears that I have three movie nights ahead of me. We were thinking of Julie&Julia, This Is It and Fame (remember, I just adore musicals :D!) Also, if anyone has not yet seen the spectacular Inglourious Basterds – you absolutely must! Unless you are underaged, in which case. I wouldn’t want to cause any trouble by advicing 10-year olds to watch a movie full of fun violence and odd Tarantino humor.
One thing that makes me smile this evening, is that as I browsed through my tiny autograph collection for the tutorial, I came upon an autograph I had received from Dan Aykroyd. The Blues brothers (2000) had such an impact on my life (it is one of those movies that me and my dad both love, the performances, songs and performers are the top! Not to mention that strange incident when a couple of summers back we went to a Lauryn Hill concert and ended up seeing Jonny Lang, also in the movie, as a warm up performer). Some of you know that I play the bass. So when Mr. Aykroyd sent me an autograph with his signature and the phrase “Rock the blues, Elwood †” it totally lifted my spirit. And still makes me happy.
I’ll try, Elwood! ps. Click here to watch Dan Aykroyd, Jonny Lang and the whole gang perform a fun song!
