We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.

The above idea popped into my head and I figured that enough people haven't seen his flicks that I'd be able to slip a slow pitch past the crowd. Then I take a dinner break, drift over here to see what's up, and whutta surprise.
And it's a great film to highlight. It's kind of half-mockumentary, similar to 'Show' and 'Guffman', but when it comes to the music, it's as serious as it gets. Nice selection on your part.
