Do You Listen to Me?

If you do, then you would have known long before this evening that the movie Once is full of great music. Uh-huh, yeah. They won over not one, but two nominations from the Mencken powerhouse of Disney-shtick and even the extremely impressive and uplifting gospel choir with savant 11-year old soloist from August Rush.

Glen Hansard, Marketa Irglova. Rockin' the Oscars. From a teeny tiny independent film, actors writing their own songs. Its called creative vision. Almost universally more powerfully moving than multi-million dollar slick productions.

I'm just sayin'---you might have to wait a little bit longer now for it to come up in your Netflix queue because the masses will jumping on board now...
