“Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things”
– My Favorite Things, Rodgers & Hammerstein, 1959
I thought I’d lighten it up a little, and get back to the the sources of a lot of my passion for the visual arts. I’m first and foremost a film, television and theatre geek. Films of all kinds, any time, anywhere. Good television, especially intelligent long-form work from folks like Joss Whedon and Aaron Sorkin, along with a lot of the classics from the ’60s and ’70s, are always a good time. When it comes to the theatre, while I am a total fan of the Bard of Avon, George Bernard Shaw, Moliere, and a host of other dramatists, musical theatre is what really floats my boat.
So this will be the first in a recurring series of articles about my favorite Films, TV shows, and plays.
