Variety Reviews - Lincoln - Film Reviews - New U.S. Release - Review by Peter Debruge

I think we all at one point or another did not like going to History class in high school. I remember taking my US History class in my senior year at J. Eugene McAteer High School, San Francisco. We were in a  bungalow at James Lick Middle School playground that year since our school was being cleaned up from asbestos. 
I remember being engaged in learning what took place in our states and as a country before I was born. I will admit, it was tough to grasp and fully understand our history. Moving forward to today, we have films that help us understand and engages us to listen. 
I think having "Lincoln" film released this November 9th, three days after the Presidential Election sends a powerful reminder to America, how far we have come as a nation.
I am excited to see a historical film about Lincoln. I like the fact, he enjoyed theater and arts. I also respect what he stood for and his goal to abolish slavery. His list of great things are long but it's great to know that we find Lincoln today still an important figure in America today. We must remember what he stood for - the people. 
I look forward seeing this film next Friday. I look forward to the story, costume design, set design, the music and to imagine living during the time Lincoln was president. 

See you at the movies.

Quarantine Times: Third Weekend

Quarantine Times: Third Weekend These past three weeks I've been diggin' into my movin' groovin' music vault (aka cd's, cassette tapes and do have 1 8-track, LOL). In my late teens and twenties, I listened to lots of different music (I'm blessed that I was open to ALL music as it made me appreciate different genres). Since places, I love to go to such as libraries, events, and museums are closed and my friends quarantining I am finding myself playing music. Like I'm going back to my music. Back then, I used to listen to a cd or cassette tape from beginning to end and got to know the album real good. Here's one that I would play to death. #MikiHoward "Ain't Nobody Like You" is my favorite of all. I hope you enjoy it and dance to it. It's a piece of feel-good music. I will continue to share music with you all. Feel free to share your music favorites with me. :) It will keep us going. ~vanessa ross
