Another 4am Start...

So how have I been whiling away the wee hours?

Eventually finished watching The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada!

I knew from the first trailer I'd love it and not sure how it took me so long to get round to watching it. All the right mix of Americana, male angst and road movie.

And Dwight Yoakam and Levon Helm anyone? Two really great performances - let alone Melissa Leo and Mr Lee Jones himself.

Here's Levon in one of his two scenes:

And Dwight Yoakam and Melissa Leo:

And here they are doing their regular thing:

The Band with The Staple Singers: 'The Weight'
(Levon's on the drums)

Dwight Yoakam: 'Intentional Heartache'


So, a few years ago (really, years) I mused that my purchasing of some
crazy PDA thing (m2000 anyone?) would increase the posts to this here
Which it clearly didn't.
Only time will tell whether the lovely iPhone that I'm sat typing this
on will have a more positive effect.
I've been spending a lot of time reading some great blogs of late and
feel I could at least attempt to offer something of worth.
However, the Cropredy Festival, aging heavy metal stars and the bloody
iPhone is all I can garner.
Well, who knows?
(see, exciting already...)
