Woodstock 1969 official compilation releases

I’ve spent the last couple of months obsessively researching recordings from the 1969 “Woodstock Music & Art Fair.” The spreadsheet here is primarily for people wondering which compilation release(s) they can purchase to hear or watch specific Woodstock performances – and to the best of my knowledge I’ve listed individual-artist releases in the Notes column.

2016 Movie Roundup

I’ve posted on several categories of film in the past, in particular the 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die annual list (my latest 1001 list was in November 2015). Here is a hodgepodge of stats, including my favorite films that were released in 2016 (films made available to me this year in Louisville, KY).

Two years of watching Movies You must See Before You Die

Listed in this post are my favorite films that I’ve watched since October 2014 from the 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die. You can read more about the first year, but I do have a couple of things I’d add to my initial commentary: In case you hadn’t noticed already, I place a heavy emphasis on cinematography. Also, I just realized that I don’t have a column for (the mostly useless) MPAA ratings. I’ll leave that up to you to research. More on the technical details after the list…

What is same love?

So I’m not asking for a tough critique of this music video, but I thought I’d throw this out there. This song doesn’t get everything right, but the spirit of it definitely gets me sometimes when I hear it, almost three years later. I still ask, “What is same love?” How can we even agree on what “love” is if we sometimes balk when someone says, “I love you?” I guess we find that singular thing and then share it with everyone else in a way that seems best for each individual person?


Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – Same Love (feat. Mary Lambert)

I do believe in One Love (re: Bob Marley), but it doesn’t seem like most of the world feels the same way.

Surely this exists somewhere in real life. Otherwise, here is an image at least for the public domain.
