I can’t explain it but “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” is my guilty pleasure! I love kick ass movies with psychotic females as the protagonist. Screenwriter, Steven Zaillian has already moved onto adapting the sequel, “The Girl Who Played with Fire” and is signed for “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest.” And I’m addicted to the “Tattoo” American version.

Music Kept A Bullet From His Head! – “The Pianist” VIDEO (So not Hip Hop, but Happy Birthday Lisa Ford!)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! As I grow a year older, I ponder on what I can do to make a difference in this world. I hope that this blog, which, as a writer, has been a dream of mine all of my life, serves as a muse that inspire others to pursue their dreams and never give up. I resolve to make this site even better in 2013 by having the courage to open up more and truly express myself & my love for music without boundaries.
At midnight, I brought in my ‘born day’ in a special way… by plopping on the couch and watching the only movie on cable worth watching at the time, ‘The Pianist’. The film (based on a true story) is about Polish-Jewish musician, Władysław Szpilmant, who escapes the jaws of death on numerous occasions at the hands of German soldiers. I included my favorite clip in this blog post, the horrific moment when he actually IS CAPTURED. This post is unique as this blog usually focuses on hip hop and modern music. But as you know, a lot of music we listen to today stems from the classics. During this part of the film, one assumes that the German solider seen is going to put a bullet in ‘The Pianist’ head. But Music itself, saves the musician as the soldier first instructs the pianist to play a song.
