A little Blues. Then Silence

Just a word on the movie.

"What movie?" you may ask.

Well, I'm talking about THE movie.

I was able to get out on Saturday and see THE movie, and it didn't disappoint. At least I don't think it did.

I mean, sure, I haven't been out to see a movie in the theaters since Casino Royale, what with a two-year-old and Netflix. Sure, my tastes may have dulled a bit with time. My expectations may have diminished.

Nevertheless, I'm pretty sure this was a great movie. Just the imagery alone could carry the day: half-naked bruised-and-beaten nymphomaniac white waif chained to a radiator by the spiritual bluesman trying to save her soul. Brothers and best-friends stealing each other's women. Pimps, whores, preachers and sweaty road house dancing. All the ingredients for a grand spectacle.

Surprisingly, however, the story is sweet, with biblical overtones. Though, everyone gets their due. Black Snake Moan gets an official Gin And Tonic Lounge recommendation.

Go see it.

And with that, I'm going to take a little break. No, nothing like the Hiatus of 2006. Just a little scheduled down time.

With one Mediation and three Depositions this week, not to mention family coming to town to help paint the baby's room, I need to take a little time off.

(Not to mention the fact that the post quality has started to suffer in recent days...)

So, no posts until this Saturday, March 10.

See you all then!


  1. Why dont you just level with us Brian...Now that you have seen Christina half naked and all chained up, your spank bank is filled up and you will be in a mastabatory coma for a few days.

    Just remember..drink lots of fluids and remember to stretch.

    I sooooo do not need that image in my head. I'm sure I speak for many of us. Thanks a lot.
    Of course, I'm also sure that you are correct. Brian doesn't fear blindness.
