Sitting here listening to some John Coltrane. It's his Giant Steps CD. I like it because for lack of any other words: it's upbeat, fairly joyful, and works wonders for my emotional state. I'm doing laundry, and need to do some other chores around the house. So this is a short and sweet post. 2015
is here!! Whoo hoo!!
I watched a movie last night called Only God Forgives, and I don't recommend it because it was one of those arthouse flicks without much plot and pretty slow in the pacing. But I also caught a rather independent film documentary on the gonzo Rolling Stone/ Creem rock critic, Lester Bangs, that I did think was worthwhile, at least to me since I like music so much. He was sort of smarmy in his reviews, and his outlook perhaps, but seemingly pretty smart. I don't agree with him a large part of the time either, nor share his particular slant in taste. Oh sure we like some of the same stuff, but overall he leaned more towards punk and garage bands, which I enjoy on occasion--oh, and he like Coltrane. So there's that.
At any rate, 2015 is looking pretty sweet as far as some of the movies that will come out this year. I'm already looking forward to Ant Man in some ways. You gotta love a character that rides on the back of ants, and wear a cool helmet like that.
But hey, later, later on in the year we'll get a new Disney Star Wars film too, and, AND a new Avengers film, and, AND a new Jurassic World film--I love dinosaurs. Here's a rundown of some of the newer movies to be coming our way in this new year: http://www.aintitcool.com/node/69908
Have and share some JOY today.
