A Review

"The Red Violin"
I thought that it was an excellent film. My favorite part, however, was the soundtrack. Without it, the movie would have been almost worthless. It was kind of like the violin playing was a character. And why didn't any of you tell me that Joshua Bell was in the movie? I was watching it and did a double take when I saw him in the scene with Fredrick Pope. A snatched the remote mumbling "It can't be!" He had sideburns and I thought that was funny.

Would love to take your advice. Instead, I practiced for a few hours. Inside. The neighbors don't like my playing...

Yes, but you didn't tell me about his cameo.

That is the very best advice. Too bad there aren't any fields in the area where I live. I'll just search for some place suitable.

If I had to wear shades because the sky's too bright, will I end up with white rings around my eyes after?
