California Guitar Trio

Have to get back to clean guitar goodness. Jon and Mark were playing some tunes on the guitar at work today, and I really liked when Jon played Classical Gas. After plugging in Classical gas to *Pandora (*see first blog post ever made on here!), I came across California Guitar Trio.

Plaid

The picture is deceiving. This is a 2 guy gig. Plaid is a UK based band created by Andy Turner and Ed Handley. Their music is created using computer technology…and I think they must have an alien friend helping them out too (hence the extra dude in the picture, i think). Anyways, just discovered them today when I was looking at the opening credits for Tekkonkinkreet and all I could focus on was the music. Enjoy!

The Class

The Class is incredibly accurate and real. It’s interesting how similar this classroom scene is to my high school…and I can imagine every other public middle/high school. I was especially interested to see how the teachers acted when they were together, how they talked about the students to each other and how they discussed discipline. Everything seemed like it was taken from just real life. This isn’t just a coincidence though. That’s the whole point of this film. The movie is based off of the book, Entre Les Murs, written by Francois Begaudeau, who is actually casted as the teacher. The students are not actors, but real live students. One of the things that keeps this movie real is that this isn’t one of those –teacher teaches students respect and transforms their lives- types stories. It’s not full of drama or anything really out of the ordinary. It’s a typical school year and it reveals the relationship between students and teachers today. What’s the moral of the story? What’s the message? I’m not sure. It is not a movie that states a specific problem and unveils an obvious answer. I feel that its purpose was to photograph the classroom just as it is…something every kid and teacher can relate to.
