There are some movies that come on cable from time to time, that no matter how many times you have seen them, you sit down and watch them like its the first time. For me, a lot of those movies involve Jack Nicholson who is on that short list of actors whose movies I will see no matter what(except for The Bucket List) which didn't look very good at all.) So yesterday, despite the fact that there were basketball games and Black History programs on galore, I repeatedly switched back to see A Few Good Men..specifically, the scene I have linked above. My boy Kevin basically knows that scene by heart, and its not just the "you can't handle the truth" line that makes it good. Its the intensity of both actors going back and forth. I still get a kick out of this 16 years later.

Yes I watched the Grammys last night, but I don't really have anything eloquent to say about it. I wanted Ledisi to win Best New Artist, but she lost to the juggernaut that is Amy Winehouse. I was happy that a jazz artist like Herbie Hancock was able to win a major award like Album of the Year, and I was even happier that Hancock took time to thank the jazz artists who came before him. Aside from that, it was kind of boring. I must be getting old.
