Late Saturday/early Sunday into the wee hours, they were showing one of my favorite movies ever on cable! Yes, I SAID EVER! I already have it on DVD, but I couldn't resist watching it, commercials and all, knowing someone else was probably enjoying at the very same time I was. It's the movie that made Goldie Hawn Jr. a.k.a. Kate Hudson a star, Almost Famous! YEEHA! What a terrific film! I love me that good ole' classic rock, and this movie is such a trip down memory lane, in the early 70's when music still meant something. Makes me live through an era I barely missed really, and writer/director Cameron Crowe does a superb job of capturing the times he himself remembers fondly. It's got this scene here, which is now a classic of American cinema. Oh Elton John, you were tha man! Do check out Almost Famous if you've never seen it. An amazing cast, great writing, and a pretty great soundtrack to a richly nostalgic sweet movie.
In the spirit of Xmas, here's a little tune by one of my musical idols:
