So I was listening to Michael Berry last Friday, and he did a lightening round on the best movie sound tracks with original music. I was shocked, first of all, that no one called in with The Wall, but then I got in the way-back machine. There’s a 1969, campy western musical - Paint Your Wagon - that is just so very good. Lee Marvin and a very young Clint Eastwood, both singing - or at least attempting to sing - in a musical about the California Gold Rush including Harve Presnell, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and Ray Walston (My Favorite Martian as a mad Irishman). It’s goofy, but it was meant to be so.
It’s on Amazon Prime if you're interested: https://www.amazon.com/Paint-Your-Wagon-Lee-Marvin/dp/B000NJCL5K/ref=sr_1_1?crid=TIAWA5LWN4X8&dchild=1&keywords=paint+your+wagon&qid=1595909686&sprefix=paint+your+wagon%2Caps%2C156&sr=8-1
Did you know 22 veterans commit suicide everyday? Did you know that the suicide rate has gone up with the general public tremendously this year because of isolation? Just be aware when you’re engaging with people around you. We never know what others are going through. And holidays...during Covid...job losses...financial strain...an effed up election...are a recipe for this. Be extra kind right now. I only say this because I am a veteran and I’ve worked with them. Have a great week.
