Don't you like fun?

Q:"What kind of music do you listen to?"
A:"Anything but Country."

What is with people shutting off to whole genres? Haven't you ever heard Garth Brooks? Dude rocks! I try and try to help people pick out a movie that they'll enjoy and sometimes I pick out a movie that has singing in it and they'll be with me through the whole description until I get to the part about how great the musical numbers are. Come on people, didn't you feel totally cultured when you saw Slumdog Millionaire? Didn't you love Jungle Book? Julie Andrews, Xanadu, whole towns in perfect harmony! Musicals are just like regular movies, but with moments of orchestrated jubilee. When did you stop liking fun? Don't you like fun?

Some musicals we have at Faye's:
Ruling Class -Peter O'Toole
Romance and Cigarettes
-James Gandelfini & Susan sarandon
Le Million -old French Flick

America's "most Trusted Man" Passes

Walter Leland Cronkite, Jr. (November 4, 1916 – July 17, 2009) was an American broadcast journalist, best known as anchorman for the CBS Evening News for 19 years (1962–81). During the heyday of CBS News in the 1960s and 1970s, he was often cited in viewer opinion polls as "the most trusted man in America" because of his professional experience and kindly demeanor. Cronkite died on July 17, 2009 at the age of 92 from cerebrovascular disease, described by his son as complications from dementia.
