“Bloodline” on Netflix, March 20

Yes, I know it doesn’t sound like writing.  But it is.  Music, that is.  And my son Edward, not me.  See a first review from the Berlin festival.  Edward Rogers and Tony Morales wrote the music for this Netflix original by the creators of the enormously successful Damages.

BloodlineAm I proud?  You bet.

Show Me!

I was privileged to hear jazz singer Kate McGarry interpret Show Me, the Lerner and Loewe classic from My Fair Lady.  Most of my thoughts these days turn to writing, and these lyrics seem to me worth several pages explicating the admonition to Show, Don’t Tell:

Don’t talk of stars Burning above; If you’re in love,Kate McGarry
Show me! Tell me no dreams
Filled with desire. If you’re on fire,
Show me!

Here we are together in the middle of the night!
Don’t talk of spring! Just hold me tight!
Anyone who’s ever been in love’ll tell you that
This is no time for a chat!
