heading down happy avenue

ok, so i just want to say that if you are even remotely interested in the 60's hippie revolution or Woodstock itself, 'Taking Woodstock' is something you should go check out. it was incredible. the focus is placed more on the main character's journey to bring the festival to his town and his struggles and successes, but it shows so much cultural and historical insight that it really captured the time and place that Woodstock was. they didn't show music, just played it in the background, but they showed the long backed-up line of people and the hills full of all the spectators. there's so many little details that made me smile and laugh about the time period and what was groovy back then. demetri martin was impressive and i loved emile hirsch, as well. so basically, good reviews all around, if you like time pieces and especially if you like the hippie era. go check it out, it's far out man.

now i just have to go see 'Paper Heart' with Charlyne Yi and Michael Cera. looks like a really adorable and intriguing documentary/story. i saw the trailer for it and was hooked. it's showing in a theater near campus so maybe i'll go see in the next few weeks. here's the trailer, hope it sparks your interest.

if you do go see it, let me know what you think. no spoilers though, please. that's just not cool lol, but a general yay or nay kinda thing. hope your week got off to a good start. peace,
