Film Score Day
On What’s Your Point yesterday, neighborhood activist Tamara Bell said one more person of major interest would be getting into the H-Town mayoral race. Stay tuned.
The State Rep. Jolanda Jones staff resignation issue came up and the Breitbart fella compared it to the folks leaving Vice President Kamala Harris’s staff. This fella also said former crooked AG Bill Barr said the Donald Trump indictment was a travesty. The Breitbart fella is a clown and a joke, but you know that already.
The H-Town water rate increase was also brought up. Some of us got letters this past Saturday from the water department on the rate increase. Former H-Town Council Member Sue Lovell said yesterday that the H-Town Mayor and City Council Members should have sent the letter instead of the water department folks.
Greg Groogan aired an interview with mayoral candidate Gilbert Garcia. Gilbert said the Latino community didn’t have a Latino here locally they could look up to. Heck, he even said we haven’t had a Latino we could look up to since the old former San Antonio Mayor Henry Cisneros days. Gilbert said he wanted to be a Latino that Latinos could look up to. Sue Lovell rebutted his remarks by saying there are Latinos here locally that Latinos could look up to. I agree with Sue.
In the hard copy of today’s Chron, the lead front page story is about history being made in local politics. You know, three Latinos on the Harris County Commissioners Court. I wonder if Gilbert knows about that.
I saw this on Daily Beast yesterday:
60 Minutes is set to air an interview with Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) on Sunday evening—and people across the media landscape are furious. In response to the news, The New York Times Magazine reporter Nikole Hannah-Jones tweeted, “this is the type of normalizing that mainstream media did of segregationists.” Meanwhile, Adam Kinzinger—CNN senior political commentator—called the decision to conduct the interview “insane.”
I stopped watching CBS national news when they hired Trump’s former interim chief of staff Mick Mulvaney to be a talking head.
Today is National Film Score Day. Yep. Here are some of my favorite film scores that won Oscars: Gravity, Schindler’s List, Dances with Wolves, E.T. the Extraterrestrial, Star Wars, Jaws, Godfather Part II, Love Story, Doctor Zhivago, Exodus, The Bridge on the River Kwai, and The Wizard of Oz.
The Beatles Let It Be also won best film score. Huh?
The Wind and the Lion, Papillon, Patton, The Magnificent Seven, and Giant are favorites that got nominated but didn’t win.
The Godfather film score was nominated, but the composer, Nino Rota, had used some of the music in a previous movie, so the nomination was revoked. It is fair to ask why Godfather Part II was allowed to be nominated since the score sounds like The Godfather’s film score. If it is a sequel, 80% of the film score must be new original material.
My Beatles wall calendar for April has a 1964 photo of the four-holding toy musical instruments. George a bugle, John a harp, Paul a tambourine, and Ringo a drum.
Third base coach Gary Pettis is 65 today. Happy Birthday, Gary Pettis!
The featured photo is Jose Cruz and his 2022 World Series bling that he received Friday night. I ran into him at The Yard yesterday.
We split the home opening series and the Tigers are in for three.
