Anvil: The Story of Anvil

I saw this last night with Alex at the Nuart. What a great doc – a real story with people you care about and genuine emotion. The director and cinemetographer were there to answer questions and tell stories. I recommend trying to see it at the Nuart while it is there, because they have been at every screening.

If you don’t know about the movie – it is about a metal band who have been trying for thirty years to match the success they had with their first album. I recommend it to anyone… really. This goes up there with DiG! and The Filth and the Fury as my favorite rock documentaries.  It is really encouraging and amazing to see a movie about really genuine people who are doing something they love for their entire life. I guarantee you will be cheering like mad the last ten minutes.

I’ve included the trailer below. Check it out if it comes to your town – this is independent and well worth your time and ticket.

    Best movie of 2009, so far.

    In fact, it would be hard to over-sell this film.


    May your first child be a masculine child.

    i have too legit to quit stuck in my head. just made some tea because i’m drinking tea now because coffee makes me nuts, though i still drink two cups in the morning, you know you’re a dope fiend when you talk with great importance about the measurements. i got a parking ticket earlier. if i had arrived at my car 15 minutes sooner i could have saved 56 bucks. funny thing about mc hammer i was gifted mc hammer one year for my birthday. i never played the tape. never, not once. i have to finish a marketing report. who would of thought i’d be writing about bel air. it must be because i’m too legit to quit. i’m going to see a play tonight with paul et al. last time i saw a play with paul it was a series of beckett shorts which still haunt me even though i have no idea what any of it meant. they probably didn’t mean anything which is why they’re so disturbing.
