...Short for Mary/Joseph. A relatively short documentary about a child-preacher who returns to the meeting circuit. I rank this right up there with those other 'Jesus Camp' and 'Hell House' christian evangelist films. This one had more resonance with me after Marjoe starts talking about how he was either born to be a front-man for a band or a preacher, and how he gets a lot of his moves from Mick Jagger...Scary.

Spastik Ink - A Wild Hare

As a young musician, this stuff really blew my mind the first time I heard it. I still get blown away by the technicality of it all. Seeing this for the first time recently really exemplified how much of a transcription and articulation feat this truly is. I remember listening to this song, and hearing from the friend who first introduced me to it that it had something to do with the Thumper parts in Bambi, but I never thought to do any research into it beyond that. I figured it would take me going to rent Bambi and arbitrarily lining the song up like the 3rd lion's roar for 'The Wall' and Wizard of Oz...Sometimes I forget where, or maybe in 'what age' I'm living - gems like this are only a few keystrokes away, and sometimes they find you.
