Picture of the Day
December 4, 2021

Been a good year for seeing music documentaries
in movie theaters--Sparks Brothers, Summer of Soul,
and tonight's Fire Music (2018), screened in the cozy
embrace of Seattle's cinephile hideout, the volunteer
run Grand Illusion, an old-fashioned revival house. It
did feel like a resurrection of sorts, first time out in a
group this large to catch a flic since the big Before.
Jesse, Linda, Matt, Thomas, Sarah, and I filled one
whole row, while unexpected co-moviegoers Mark
and Amy Denio sat down across the aisle. 'Twas
my first light rail trip to the new U District station--it's
     smooth! On the way home we got lucky and caught
       a well-timed transfer to the 10, shaky bus free jazz!
