Happy Halloween

Metal bats

Today, I went for a couple of hikes with my sister and her dog. The first hike was at the Mine Hill Preserve in Roxbury. There are some old mine entrances there that are fenced over. Apparently this mine houses some bats.

The weather was nice enough, except for the ridiculously high winds 50+ mph (so I heard).

A review of "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me (Soundtrack)"

by Angelo Badalamenti

I am revisiting "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me" today; I bought it originally after I first saw the movie in 1992. An excellent movie with an excellent soundtrack, which I’ve played many, many times. Every track is brilliant. Right now, “The Black Dog Runs At Night” is playing, and, as usual, it makes the hairs on my neck stand up.

It’s all quite perfect for my mood this evening: dark, brooding, grim.

That's what you get when hiking. Unfortunately, you have to come down sometime.

No jacket required

on my hike yesterday. All the rain is keeping the area warm. That would be nice, except that it's bringing down a lot of the colorful fall foliage prematurely (and making the footing precarious on the trail).

A story about "Inside Man (Widescreen Edition)"

by Spike Lee

I finished watching the movie The Inside Man this morning. It was filmed in NYC at 20 Exchange Pl, where I used to work. That makes it doubly entertaining for me!

I have only one quibble with this film – too many stars, I think it would have been better with unknowns in the various roles. In general, it’s an entertaining movie about a bank heist with a twist.
