When you have a good teacher the best teachers agree that part of what makes a good one are the parents that they are teaching to. If you thought we were done writing about our favorite movies there is more - on a thespian level. We posted about this last year but we are posting it again this week because our love for this film is growing. It is like a hybrid of Dazed and Confused and Stand and Deliver. It is when you take both those films and look beyond the standard Hollywood cliches and combine them into one movie. The results are incredible and it is also a good movie to watch if you are looking for something new to watch. It really does touch on themes of so much of what kids face in our society today - drugs, poverty, school, friendship, success and failure. All these are dealt with in a very touching and funny way. You have to check this one out if you haven't seen it already. You won't be disappointed.
Next up is one of our favorite songs by one of our favorite bands. It has all the same elements that made this band special (vocalist, bassist, guitarist and drummer) and it is the perfect song for the Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen generations who remember those great acts of the '60s and '70s. The band also has a music video that is right at home in the year 2002 with all it's cheesy video ballets. If you have ever wanted to practice in a way that doesn't seem like a chore, then check out this one. If you are seen this - it will mean that you are having fun and that's what you want to be doing. Once you see the video, you won't be able to stop watching.
This show is actually set in the 90's (1990's) and it is very much the same show. But where the sit-coms of the 80's drew from social issues of the race relations while the sit-coms of the 90's drew racism, today's sit-coms are still drawing on equality, but while also mocking the trend towards extremes and divisions. d2c66b5586
