Two important things you should know about today's post:
1. I am sick so am writing all my thoughts in bullet-list format.
2. Even though these posts are titled monday mix tape I'm not sure I've ever actually posted them on a Monday! I like the sound of that title too much to change it though. Sue me.
one of the most thought-provoking films I've ever seen
well-written and well-delivered dialogue.
excellent acting performances (especially Streep and Hoffman)
beautifully-peformed supporting roles.
set in the middle of last century, but a topic that is more relevent than ever
not wrapped up in a tidy package at the close
leaves the viewer the opportunity to participate in the story.
Music: My Blueberry Nights, soundtrack
first heard about the song The Devil's Highway on this post loved the song, but couldn't download it without the whole album listened to several clips and loved every one bought the album with the iTunes gift card I got for Christmas love every track - bluesy, haunting, sweet and fun all at the same time artists featured include Amos Lee, Norah Jones, Cat Power and Otis Redding am ordering the film on Netflix soon!
Indelible Grace Music -For All the Saints, Beam of Heaven, Wake Thy Slumbering Children
volumes 3, 4 and 5 of 5 Indelible Grace albums
the purpose of Indelible Grace music:
Our hope is to help the church recover the tradition of putting old hymns to new music for each generation, and to enrich our worship with a huge view of God and His indelible grace.
learned about this project through this website that provided resources for our Tennebrae service last Good Friday
am inspired and hopeful and rejuvenated every time I listen
hope that inspiration will become contagious to the musicians I am privileged to know and work alongside in 2009
am almost rendered speechless by the connection I had with this book (grateful to Norris for her transparency)
