I thought you’d want what I want
Sorry my dear
Today is also the 52nd birthday of country superstar Tim McGraw! Check out his website for information on the Man, the Legend!
We remember Tim from his Indian Outlaw days…
…before he became an elder statesman of country music married to Faith Hill.

You might also want to check out Boyz in the Hood (1991) in memory of John Singleton who died the other day. John Singleton was the youngest director and the very first African-American in cinema history ever to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Director.
The world is more than we know. I watched it last night and it was pretty good. But The Silence of the Lambs was the big winner that year. C’est la vie.
