I was surprised to hear, vis-à-vis the film chatter locally, how few people know his music. I wouldn't have, I guess, if I hadn't made such a practice of shagging AARP members as a child. Ahahaha! But srsly, I thought everyone had a copy of Cold Front. I also prob thought he was dead. Yk, like so many of that time. xoxo


Yes, it is interesting there are a bunch of "lost" years where you decide for yourself which of life's crevices he had fallen in to. His daughter was close to tears when she talked about him. Still thinking about it.


Everyone will hear of it now bc it's been nominated for an Academy Award xo


We watched it last night; I came back to this bc I was trying to remember what you wrote. I liked it a lot, too. There was a ton of midwestern culture in it -- how he reared the girls to feel as good as anyone else, the way he approached his contracting work with stoicism & high regard. I was really interested in hearing abt 1970s South Africa from the South Africans ... I'd had no idea the infrastructure was so restrictive in every direction to the entire populace.


Yes, that taking dignity in work was very mid-Western. Am quite interested to see how it fares at the Oscars
