Before the Music Dies

My friend Kevin Igarta sent me this link to a trailer for a new film coming out this summer called “Before the Music Dies.” It’s a film by these two fellas: Andrew Shapter and Joel Rasmussen. Near as I can tell this is a first film for both of these guys. This movie looks pretty thought provoking. I hope it comes to KC. Just in the trailer alone there are some very interesting comments made that I sort of resonate with initially. Hope All is well in LA & thanks for the post K-Doggie.

    I was talking about this movie with my friend Reva just last week. It looks pretty cool. Thanks for posting the trailer.

    (I do hope realize that my vigorous disagreement with you in the Bush/Gore thread is nothing more than that: vigorous disagreement.)

    I love the comment by Marsalis. Superficiality is in and depth and qualit is out. Could be a metaphor for the way a lot of us do life these days.

    I don’t know if you all read Paste or not, but they have a nice write-up about this movie in their last issue. (They also made a list of the 100 Greatest Living Songwriters, which I found interesting as well, but that’s another discussion.)

    Hey Kevin, if you find that paste article online let me know and I’ll set up a link. I couldn’t find it.

    The movie looks very interesting. Hopefully, it’ll get some decent distribution so we can see it here around town without having to buy it on DVD (not that there’s anything wrong with that, too) & can see it in a local venue.

    FYI, Tim – I’ve been a subscriber to Paste since Issue 1/vol 1, and I have that issue if you’d like to look at it. is the link, but after looking thru the “Read This Issue” link, I don’t see that they have that particular article online. At least not in my cursory search.

    Grace & peace,

    I’ve scoured their site for it, but they don’t seem to have it online for some reason. I’ll keep an eye out for it, though.

    BTW, don’t know if any of you all are into Myspace or not, but I keep a blog there. Stop in and check it out if you get a chance. It’s at
