Listening to NPR this morning, I learn that Greek composer and politician Mikis Theodorakis died Thursday at age 96.
Theodorakis’ music for the film Zorba the Greek became a worldwide shorthand for a seize-the-moment kind of joyfulness.

The music and the film scene still provide one of the most memorable scenes in my lifetime.

The Genious of Making Good Seem Bad and Bad Seem Good   Leave a comment

Quentin Tarantino writing and directing style is very distinctive and like most very creative artist, his work is either loved or hated – for me it’s the former. I love his writing and his ability to make good seem bad, and bad seem good, which makes effective use of how one cannot exist without the other. With the release of his latest film, “Inglourious Basterds,” he is currently getting a lot of media coverage. As part of an article titled, “Quentin Tarantino in His Own Words,” there’s a great video of clips from some of his movies. Check it out.

Getting home a little late Friday night, as I often do, set down in front of the TV to unwind before going to bed. The timing was perfect to catch Charlie Rose interviewing Quentin. The interview, as of this posting, is not yet on posted on his site, but probably will be tomorrow. As always, Charlie Rose, the best in the business, brings out the best in his guests.
