Art and Life
September 26, 2007
Just a quick note about amazing things I’ve seen in the last few days…
Last saturday, September 22, Carol and I went to this freakingly extraordinary show of Cirque du Soleil called “Delirium”.
Today, I watched this documentary called “Before the Music Dies” (I bought the DVD through their online store). If you’re a music geek or just fan, you must watch this movie! One cool sidenote is that they (B-Side, the independent distributor behing this movie) have this interesting business model which allows you to pay a very low price to download a DRM-free video file from their website. One of my favorite quotes from this movie:
“Today, Ray Charles would not get a shot. Today, Stevie Wonder would not get a shot. They are blind.” (Branford Marsalis, about the music business)
I don’t know how my life would be without music… without art…
