As I pause to attempt a sorting out as to what to write about…

And simultaneously try to keep from going barking mad while doing this ‘life’ thing…

(I did find my eyeglasses! Whee!)

Here’s a very nice musical interlude for ya… don’t hear this too often, heck, didn’t hear it often even back in the 60s when this movie was hot stuff.

I loved these movies back then… and to this day I still do.

They called them “Spaghetti Westerns.” Never liked that term, hated it really, for more reason than it’s offense to my half-Italian blood, as these films, all of them, seemed to me then… and now… to be a hell of a lot more real  than mainstream Hollywood’s stylized, sanitized fare — and Mr. Eastwood, well, folks, Mr. Eastwood is a personal hero to me – on many  levels.

Brilliant stuff.

Peace.
