Happy Monday...

How are you, dear internets? So, this time, next week I begin my orientation week at Naropa. I'm pretty excited. I'm ready, I think. ;) Last night, I finally watched Black Orpheus. A beautiful movie. I have been in love with Brazil and all that is Brazilian since I was in college. Mostly due to my love for Antonio Carlos Jobim, Samba music, and the language of Portuguese. Folks, this movie is subtitled and I hope you watch it. Besides the bad link of studio voices to mouths moving on screen, it's the tragic love story that I'm sure you have heard. But go rent this! You'll enjoy it. Tonight: I'll either watch "The Jazz Singer" or "All that Jazz." Yes. I love Neil Diamond and I love Bob Fosse. So, I'll let you know what I think, my critique of sorts....Happy Day!

Never watched the movie, but I have Then Vince Guaraldi Trio's "Jazz Impressions of Black Orpheus" cd. It is excellent.

That is a good old movie. Have you seen City of God? It is a very good movie.
Portuguese is a beautiful language but not very useful... Not many people speak it.
