Theme from “A Fistful of Dollars” performed live !

The Danish National Symphony Orchestra gives an awesome live performance of the theme from Sergio Leone’s classic western “A Fistful of Dollars” (staring Clint Eastwood) composed by the great Ennio Morricone.  Is that great or what?  Want more?  Here’s a performance of the theme from “The Good, the Bad & the Ugly” !

My Mexican Lobby Cards

For a time, I collected Mexican Lobby Cards, but lost interest after a while.  I was thinking I could sell them, but realized I was still attached to them.  De-cluttering is hard!

Breezy Broom loop

Here’s a pretty little scene filmed with my iPhone.  It looks weird because I applied the “Warp Stabilizer VFX” in After Effects.  It’s desperately trying to smooth out the flowery plant which is wildly blowing around in the wind.  This is what happens.  It’s only 5 seconds of video, but I looped it forwards-backwards.  Click here for a trippy version.

Debussy’s “Reverie” arranged for harp

Written in 1890 by Claude Debussy for solo piano.  The harpist here, Valeria Kurbatova, arranges the work for solo harp.  Simply beautiful.  Gratitude.  Peace.

* rev·er·ie : a state of being pleasantly lost in one’s thoughts; a daydream.
