Joe Morgenstern of the Wall Street Journal, Friday 15 March (2013)

A long time ago, when self was still a veritable babe in the woods about the whole movie reviewing thing, self fell in love with a movie called “The Hurt Locker.”  She happened to be in New York, trying to write a libretto (!!), and one fateful day, emerging from the subway on Columbus Circle, she stopped at a news kiosk to purchase a copy of the WSJ and later that night read Morgenstern’s review of the movie.  It was entitled “Shock, Awe, Brilliance.”

She couldn’t wait to blog about it, and some weeks later, shock of her life, Morgenstern himself actually left a comment on this here very blog!

Which understandably sent self into conniptions!

He began: “Just so you don’t think I am completely jaded . . . ”

Morgenstern love!  Morgenstern love!  Morgenstern love!

Today, it is many years later.  There are a few more wrinkles on self’s face.  She knows because when she went to her local Michael’s to have her Story/Stereo poster framed, and told the young men helping her at the Custom Frame Shop that she was one of the featured performers for the event being advertised, that she had indeed performed with a rock band in Washington, DC, they looked at her as if she were a dotty old lady, and evinced not the slightest tremor of excitement.

Anyhoo, Read the rest of this entry »
