Ready for my closeup?

Caught Casino Royale yesterday afternoon, just after I got off the air. Stunning, truly the best Bond in a while - no stupid video game effects, and a certain grittiness true to Ian Fleming's writing. Daniel Craig was just right - who cares about an actor's hair color when they deliver lines and scenes with real talent?
I came home and nursed a cold that was trying to catch me - hahaha flu. Yeay fruit juices, tylenol and sleep!
This morning I also watched an amazing film, Elliott Carter: A Labyrinth of Time by Frank Scheffer. It not only is moving, and beautifully filmed, it allows you to get to know a stellar composer. Rent it or get your copy today and watch it - a couple of times. The world would be a better place if it got to know Elliott Carter and his music.
