Toots and Filmettes

So I've been away for a couple of months. Away from here anyway. Blogging elsewhere (for money). And becoming obsessed with the music of Belgian jazz virtuoso Toots Thielemans and with the Flip camera I bought myself for Christmas.

I'm making short films about things that I like. Here's my latest, about the final dress rehearsal of a musical about Billie Holiday starring one of my favorite local actresses, Denise Lee.

I'll be back soon with more college-related stuff. I'm teaching again this semester (film history) and was a guest lecturer at another college the other day.

Why is it that I get older and students are always the same age? Reminds me of the old line from Hugh Hefner, about how he ages but his girlfriends stay 25.

Anyway, watch the film if you can. It's 6 minutes. With songs by Lady Day. And a cameo by Ruby, the cutest Chihuahua ever.

Good to have you back—glad I did not give up on you. I am not able to watch the film. Can you post it on YouTube? Never know, you might become famous with the increased exposure...

Take care,
