Oh sir? You forgot your map! And our millions of dollars!

Dave Kehr reports in his "New DVD's" column in the New York Times that I no longer have to rely on a VHS (or cut-up TV version) of Bill Murray's Quick Change. This has been my favorite Murray movie for a little while, mainly because I've seen Ghostbusters, Groundhog Day and Rushmore all far, far too many times. But also, it's nice to see people begin to realize that this (not GD) is arguably the movie where he made the transition from being a comedian who is in movies to a comic actor. QC is also significant for being the anti-Ghostbusters, in its virulent anti-New York attitude. And as a foil/romantic interest, Geena Davis does nearly as well as Sigourney Weaver, and way better than Andie MacDowell.

Yes, this is in fact a blog about music. We just happen to think about movies a lot too. So some music talk. John Coltrane's Live at the Half Note was a birthday present from my sister; if you are at all jazz-inclined, you should get it for yourself. The version of "My Favorite Things" alone will melt your brains, but in the awesome way.
