Noteworthy

  • The Quick and the Dead – I LOVE this movie. Crowe plays a former gunslinger forced to be one again. He is in a quick draw competition set up by Gene Hackman. Maybe not his best role but a flick that I love.
  • Gladiator – Crowe is Maximus! Great period piece set in the Roman Empire. Ridley Scot at his best… maybe? This role got him an Oscar.
  • A Beautiful Mind – A biopic about John Nash. Crowe plays Nash. Tear jerking and it got him an Oscar nod.
  • 3:10 to Yuma – Crowe is Ben Wade, the baddie in this western. I have watched the old one and the new one, they are both great but Crowe is the highlight of the movie. Though he and Christian Bale do play well together.
  • Les Miserables – Crowe brings Javert to life. I know a lot of people did not dig him in this role but I loved it.
  • The Nice Guys – Crowe plays Jackson Healy. I really loved this movie and Crowe needs to play funny a lot more often. He and Ryan Gosling need to play in Shane Black’s world a lot more often.

There’s an ease that I have living in Australia. The best things about Sydney are free: the sunshine’s free, and the harbour’s free, and the beach is free.

Born March 15, 1975

will.i.am musician, songwriter, music producer, actor, a founding member of The Black Eyed Peas – damn is he busy!

If what I am is what’s in me
Then I’ll stay strong – that’s who I’ll be
And I will always be the best
“me” that I can be.

There’s only one me, I am it
Have a dream I’ll follow it
It’s up to me to try.

lyrics – What I Am

You can rule ignorance; you can manipulate the illiterate; you can do whatever you want when a people are uneducated, so that goes in line with corrupt business and corrupt politics.

Tone Loc

Born March 3, 1966

Tone Loc was one of those iconic entertainers from my youth that I will never forget. His musical stylings fit the MTV generation that I grew up in and his beats are still rolling around in my head.

Noteworthy

  • Wild Thing & Funky Cold Medina – Classic songs from my childhood. If you have not listened to these two jams you have not lived.
  • Movie Roles: Bebe’s KidsAce Venture: Pet DetectiveThe Adventures of Ford Fairlane – These are just a few of his acting roles but they are also my favorites. His role as Emilio in Ace Venture is classic and proves that his comedy chops are on point.

Lyrics to Fats Domino song Blue Monday

“Blue Monday”

Blue Monday how I hate Blue Monday
Got to work like a slave all day
Here come Tuesday, oh hard Tuesday
I’m so tired got no time to play

Here come Wednesday, I’m beat to my socks
My gal calls, got to tell her that I’m out
‘Cause Thursday is a hard workin’ day
And Friday I get my pay

Saturday mornin’, oh Saturday mornin’
All my tiredness has gone away
Got my money and my honey
And I’m out on the stand to play

Sunday mornin’ my head is bad
But it’s worth it for the time that I had
But I’ve got to get my rest
‘Cause Monday is a mess

Well, I wouldn’t want to say that I started it (rock & Roll), but I don’t remember anyone else before me playing that kind of stuff.
