We watched Hedwig and the Angry Inch last night. I thought it was a stunning movie. It was, all at once, sad, lonely and empty, yet hopeful and uplifting. It was also incredibly thought provoking. We spent almost the rest of the night talking about love and soulmates and if a person truly has another half and if they do, can they live without every finding that other half. Can one be truly whole without their soulmate? No answers, just a lot of pondering. The movie reminded me in many ways of Tommy, with the music and the plot that played out like a surreal landscape. I truly enjoyed Hedwig, enough to put in my "to buy" column, but before I buy could somebody please explain the last fifteen minutes to me? I felt like I went to the bathroom and missed that one sentence that would clarify the whole thing for me.
If anyone out there would like to help me with the banned books project, (i.e., redesigning/coding the whole damn thing) I would be eternally grateful, the banned books would be eternally grateful, librarians everywhere would be eternally grateful and ummm.....I'd pay you. In books. Banned books. Email me. Please?
Don't forget to add your two cents to the QOD. Or five cents, whatever you can afford.
