Coming into the third base of December. I’ve been making a bunch of adjustments to the new version of the website. The surprise is coming January 1st.
I’m about to take off to the land of the ice and snow for the holidays. I need a massive break from the city of angels. Of course I’ll be enjoying some time with the extended family, putting on some skis and getting into some extreme skiing. That’s right, I’m a snow freak in case you didn’t know. Keep the fingers crossed and in next years Warren Miller movie I could have a song and maybe I’ll even get a chance to be immortalized on film for skiing. You never know – of course I can dream.
If you haven’t downloaded a copy of my Holiday Song, you should. Besides I’ve been getting e-mails from people saying how good they think it is! Can’t beat that.
Here’s my movie pick for this week: The Aviator. I got to see this last night. Absolutely rivoting. I had heard of Howard Huges before, but didn’t really know much of anything about him. I’m sure much of this is glamorized for the sake of putting him up on the big screen, but what an engrossing tale. Leonardo DeCaprio does a great job. I’ve never really been a fan of his, but wow – I think there’s gonna be a good race for the Oscar this year. The special effects are amazing and at points you wonder how the hell they could make some of the camera moves they make. It’s a long movie, but I could have sat there for at least another hour.
