So I am loving Supernatural so far. I have re-watched both of this season's episodes, and I don't think I did that at all with Season 6. I thought the guys were spectacular in "Hello Cruel World." The Sam and Dean show )

And I saw the best movie, "Thunder Soul." It is about the Kashmere High School Show Band which during the 1970s was the best show band in the country. It was the first all black band to compete against the white show bands, and the first to add funk music to the very white-bread traditional jazz music that the other bands played. It is an awesome and inspiring story, tempered by the fact that bad principals, bad district and school leadership can manage to ruin almost anything that is good for kids. But those men and women who were the kids in the 70s band are perfect evidence of why things like music in public schools matters. And the band director at my school plays awesome drums--both then and now. If you don't want to see the movie, at least go to iTunes and listen to the Kashmere Band play Kashmere (or anything else, it is all good). Awesome!
