Wish I could see/hear that.

I need to see Punch-Drunk Love again. I Heart Huckabees is one of my favorite soundtracks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/22/16 7:50pm coelacanth:

(but i'm wondering what a "chellesta" is)
Avatar Tue. 3/22/16 7:51pm geezerette:

Altman's "Pop-Eye" is worth watching,you wouldn't think so but it's one of those beautiful train wrecks. If you love early Elsie Segar strips it looks like a sincere tribute to one of Altman's passions. A live action Pop-Eye is an impossible task but it comes so close to working and parts of it are charming. The set really looks like the little 3d sets built for multiplaning.

Ryan McAdams is SUPER busy as you will see by his calendar on his website (www.ryan-mcadams.com) and is scheduled to announce conducting for some exciting, upcoming Wordless Music live scores very soon on the website (wordlessmusic.org).

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/22/16 7:54pm chris:

(just kidding about the Kanye thing... being a smartass... sorry.)
Avatar Tue. 3/22/16 7:58pm Devon E. Levins:

I hope to have the Don Ho of LA back very soon and we can try to ask him more about some of his famous friends! JK!
