Alex Took This...

Why don't I live in the sticks like La? Because stuff happens downtown, that's why!
From Dave:

Last Wednesday we went to see the silent movie "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" down at the SL Library. This wasn't the 1941 version with Spencer Tracy, but the 1920 silent feature with Drew Barrymore's grandfather, John Barrymore. A pop/synth group out of Boston called Devil Music Ensemble performed their new score live along with the movie.

Alex loves the library and was enchanted by the feel of the atrium at night. Here's his vision. Its called "Why don't I live in the sticks like La? Because stuff happens downtown, that's why!"

Here's my review of the movie: Less hamming, more talking. That would be nice.

Here's my review of the score: Spooky, enthralling. Omit the movie, and this would have been an ASS-kicker of a concert.

I love old movies...but can't get into the silent films! I guess I lack imagination or maybe I just enjoy the emotion displayed through voice! I think it is the silent film make-up and the over-the-top actions that freak me out! Oh, clowns make me feel the same way!! EEK! :)

I love that building. It's classy, modern, and visually stunning all at the same time.
