‘Piddle, Twiddle, and Resolve.’

Hey! Nothing new under the sun, you know.

Piddle, Twiddle, and Resolve1776

I could just watch clips from that movie for the rest of the night.  In fact, I probably will.

The nice thing about being me…

…which is to say, old enough to not die from a case of shame; happily married with kids; and just, in the end, not caring?  It’s being able to sing this in the supermarket parking lot…

…simply because the cashier’s name was Abigail.

Movie of the Week: National Treasure.

Going from 1776 to National Treasure doesn’t seem all that much of a jump for me; but then again, I’m weird. Anyway, National Treasure is just one of those fun popcorn movies that demonstrates that Jerry Bruckheimer secretly plays roleplaying games.

Seriously. That was somebody’s campaign. Done right.

“Momma, Look Sharp.”


Momma Look Sharp, 1776

Same singer – I think – but from the original Broadway play, not the movie. Still one of the two most powerful songs in either; the other, of course, being “Molasses to Rum.”

Movie of the Week: 1776.

It’s getting up to the July Fourth weekend, so we remove the modern heroes of Apollo 13 and bring in the ancestral heroes of 1776. I saw the Broadway revival starring Brent Spiner as John Adams, and he did fine with it – still, this is the one that I grew up with.
