JUST WANT TO CUT LOOSE

Do you ever feel like you need a complete contrast to the focus of your life?

That is what I am feeling tonight. After an endeavor taking over my life for the last two months, I now only have to do the "finishing" off of the follow-ups with the press and stuff. The event I produced was today. So as a decompression act I am online reading blogs and freely cruising.

It is the feeling I got when I was teaching full-time - music, in the public schools, where I taught 8 and 9 classes day. And at night I was in a trilogy playing Ruth in the British comedy, The Norman Conquests. I loved the part. But when the play closed, I felt like I needed to break out. Needed a release - needed to be less contained in my responsibilites of a life that was over-scheduled.

And the song that expressed my feeling was Dogs in the Yard.
.....................................................................

.....................................................................
I want to be bad
And not even care
I want to go out of my head somewhere
I want run crazy
Like the dogs in the yard
I want to cut the rope
But it's getting so much harder

I think I'll play poker
Stay out every night
Throw stones at the water
In the morning light

I want to be lazy like the dogs in the yard
Why can't I fly tonight?
Why can't I sleep all morning?
I'm going out of my mind tonight
That's where I'm going
That's where I'm going

Gonna have a good time
Before it's too late
Come on, baby, let's go uptown and celebrate
Gonna celebrate!

We're gonna run crazy
Like the dogs in the yard
We're gonna fly tonight
We're gonna sleep all morning

We're going out of our minds tonight
That's where we're going


I became very impressed last spring with the acting in the movie Amazing Grace that is to be released as a DVD November 13, 2007. I was unfamiliar with the actors cast in this movie until I saw AG. But I became an instant fan of Ioan Gruffudd, Rufus Sewell, Benedict Cumberbatch, Youssou N'Dour, Michael Gambon, Ciarán Hinds, Nicholas Farrell, Jeremy Swift, Marianne Thornton, Romola Garai, Toby Jones and I already knew one, Albert Finney

digitalfairy24 has posted the entire movie in 11 segments online. Some of my favorite scenes are in segment 8:

And this is the final section, 11. THE ONLY WAY TO A GREAT MOVIE- a great cast to begin...IOAN GRUFFUDD, RUFUS SEWELL, BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH, JEREMY SWIFT...

And while cruising I found this gem. Ioan Gruffudd speaking his beloved Welsh:
