Musical Monday

Gary and I watched High INFidelity for about the 6th time last night. Man, I love that movie. Jack Black and that bald kid that plays "Dick", just crack me up so bad! Jack Black is just perfect in his "don't touch the shirt, it's vintage" role, and Dick is just well, understated and hilarious, and a just little bit of a...you guessed it.
By the way, did you know that a lot of the record store shots were actually filmed in a downtown Seattle LP shop? How do I know this? I was in said shop last summer, and believe you me, I recieved quite the lesson on which scenes were filmed there!
Here though we have one of the funniest scenes from that film and no doubt, the way we all should have behaved in similar situations when the opportunity arose..
Just kidding!




A very special Top Five List:



And then finally, one of my all time favorite tunes from High Fidelity, a little "don't touch the shirt, it's vintage" Stevie Wonder for you!


Have an awesome week!

Great clips. Wonderful movie. Whenever I see it, I go for days missing my old record store days.

Wow, I have always meant to watch that but I never have ... until now. Would you look at that. Just under 2 weeks it comes on a channel I can get. How cool is that?

That will be cool to see. I hung out a little in music stores and then went forever never visiting... now most if not all are gone. I love the clips.

Now for the question. Do Mondays come early over on the West Coast? Many I can not believe it is Monday already. I could have sworn the weekend just started. LOL

You have a wonderful week to Susie.
