WIerd

I'm in an odd mood tonight. I'm still reflecting on the 9/11 show that was on last night. Amazing piece of filmography, I'll never be the same again - that's for sure.

I'm at work, but not talking on the air as my voice is still kind of wierding out on me at times. The more I talk the more it goes. We're changing formats again, this time going in for what is being called an "Urban" lean. I'm pretty apathetic about it, I really don't listen to a lot of the stuf we play as it is. I will be glad to not hear Jewel anymore though.

Haven't talked to Kevin in a couple of days, so no news to report there. Hopefully I'll get to talk to him Tuesday afternoon and with any luck get to see him again soon. He's been very sick, I think he's sleeping a lot of it off. That's what I did, i had NO energy last week. At any rate, it would be nice to talk to him soon, I've been worried about him. He's been in my thoughts all day.

WHOA...

Okay, I just got mind-fucked in a big way. I'm channel flipping, right? And lo and behold, there's Sally Field in a movie I didn't recognize, and being that I love her work, I'm thinking "COOL!" So she's walking down this sidewalk in what looks like Manhattan or some place very similar, and it becomes clear to me - the movie is "Sybil". I've never seen this one before. I caught the last 30-40 minutes of it once and decided not to watch until I could see the whole thing. WHOA...

She's fucking brillaint, for starters. The woman is just phenominal. I had read the book like 100 years ago, and I need to reread it. I went online and did some research on Sybil Dorsett, the name given to the woman the story is based on. Come to find out her real name was Shirley Ardell Mason, and she was an art teacher in Lexington, Kentucky until her death a few years ago. The story is just absolutely heartbreaking and Sally Field completely nails each one of the characters. She had to be 16 different personalities dwelling within this one woman, and she really does switch between them quite seamlessly. Brilliant.
