kung fu hustle

Posted on June 26, 2006. Filed under: Movies, The boy(s) |

Brian and I rented Kung Fu Hustle last night. I had seen this movie on a date with Brent‘s friend Dave (which got a bit interesting when we realized all of the connections — especially that Dave’s ex-girlfriend and Brian had made out at Queen’s one night a year or so before — not that unusual to have the connections, but just seemed wrong somehow, oh and Brian came home and started being in love with me around this point in time too — all very drama and worth a post on its own one day) last summer and thought it was fantastic. It’s definitely better on the large screen — but it’s just random enough to hold my attention. Kung Fu fighting with a fun story line — definitely worth a view if you want something that you just have to sit there and watch and not have to think too much about. Filled with dancing gangsters and lost of wicked choreography in the fight scenes.

Crossing Borders

Posted on June 26, 2006. Filed under: Music, The boy(s) |

Brian's debut in a professional music director role was yesterday with the Tucson Masterworks Corale and it was inspiring. I was so proud to watch him up there and he really did a wonderful job with the chorus — they had a great challenge in the pieces he selected, and much of the music was quite different from that they were used to, but they really enjoyed it, and the audience did too. It was all so beautiful.

After the concert was over, everyone in the chorus told Brian how much they enjoyed the challenge and enjoyed his enthusiasm and passion. One man wanted to make sure that he continued on with the intensity and passion that he had for them, which I'm certain he will. He called him the next Robert Shaw. Which I believe is true. One woman also thought of him as her son. It was all very impressive and I was told many times that I had a good one there and was lucky to have him and to not let him go.
