I’m always home, I’m uncool


I was having a conversation with a friend the other day and the subject of favorite movies came up.

“Annie Hall.” There’s never any hesitation from me.

I receive the usual perplexed look followed with a slight, I don’t get it, but, okay grin.

“Then there’s Shawshank, History of the World, Part I, The King’s Speech, and Almost Famous.” I continued, noting what was in the top of my head.

“Shawshank is a GREAT movie.”

“Totally. Love the friendship between Red and Andy, and that scene when Andy locks himself in the room and blasts classical music on the loud speakers is one of my favorites.”

“Yea. It’s a great flick.”

“Have you seen Almost Famous?”

“Only half of it, on TV.”

“Ohhhh, you have to watch the whole thing. It’s so good. Every music lover-writer’s dream!”

It’s been years since I watched Cameron Crowe’s semi-autobiographical film, but there are so many things I love about Almost Famous, that I started You Tubing it immediately.
