Field of Dreams: Myth, Movie or Legend. Cooperstown as a Paradigm. Should Skaneateles Suffer the Same Fate?
A friend of mine lives in Central New York in the FingerLakes area. It’s a quaint area, not a lot of big roads, and while they get summer tourism and winter tourism for the Christmas holidays, generally speaking this is small-town Americana. It’s the epitome of what some would call the American dream– local schools within walking distance for most. The residents know the firefighters and police officers and most of the doctors around their area. People are friendly with other neighboring towns– and I mean towns, not cities like where I live. This area is not a suburb. It’s a town– a little small, cozy town with a lot to offer (except when it gets to be zero degrees during the winter)
I have been a big Jason Mraz fan for a long time. I saw the photos when he went RAW — in food regimen. So I got wind of this video and it was interesting how accessible he is/was in this video. Maybe he’s not just like every other musician out there. He shares his feelings and tells you what’s going on with his life. It also tells you a lot about his style of composing music and how he makes it happen. It’s authentic!
I am a movie junkie. If I am not in a theater (and for years I was NOT unless it was something I really wanted to see), I am watching things on DVD. It makes no difference if it’s a movie ( I just hit Matrix Trilogy again. Thanks for the recommendation Morgana Rae!). So while I have spent the last few months looking at trailers for the FEW movies I have seen and thought worthwhile (The Avengers), I ticked off the movies I did want to see for real (Bourne Legacy is my kind of flick. Jeremy Renner = Matt Damon only single! Nice twist to the plot too). I included Snow White and the Hunstman because I knew that Chris Hemsworth had proved himself viable with Thor (a joke of a movie) and managed to pull off The Avengers with aplomb against a stellar cast. Charlize doing her fashion thing and KStew + special FX, what could go wrong?
