There are rock bands and there are rock bands. Queen is a rock band. Their music is everything rock and roll should be.
The trailer for the Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody hit the internet with a bang today.
Starring Rami Malek as Queen’s legendary front man Freddie Mercury, the film tells the story of the band up to 1985 Live Aid concert.
The buzz so far is that of excitement for the film and frankly, based on the trailer, I couldn’t agree more with the buzz. Rami Malek looks very much like the real Freddie Mercury, I can only hope that both he and the film can hold a candle to the real life people whose story they are telling.
Unfortunately, we will have to wait until November to find out.
Wayne’s World turns 25 on February 14th.
Wow, I feel old.
Based off the Saturday Night Live skit of the same name, star and co-writer Mike Myers was able to turn a three-minute sketch into one of the funniest movies from the early 1990’s.
I think one of the qualities that makes this movie so appealing is that Wayne and Garth are so ordinary. They’re just two guys filming a TV show in a suburban basement. That’s it. It’s so simple, but it works. While some of the references are a bit dated, these characters are not. Anyone could do the same thing today with a video camera and a youtube account. If I could put a finger on what makes this movie funny, I would. I can’t explain it, but it is hilarious, absolutely brilliant and the screenplay has some of the funniest lines I’ve ever heard.
I don’t know about anyone else, but I think that the scene where they are singing Bohemian Rhapsody is in the car just so perfect.
If you have not seen this movie, I recommend that you see it immediately. I promise that you will laugh. It’s just that good.
Happy Friday and to all my readers, have a good weekend.
I was laid off today. I won’t lie that it hurts. Being laid off, regardless of the reasons, hurts. It is an emotional punch to the gut that takes time to heal.
I sort of knew what I was getting into when I accepted this job. For privacy reasons, I will not share the specifics of job or the company. But I will state that it was the most emotionally, professionally and physically trying job that I’ve ever had. I have never come home so exhausted.
There were previous opportunities to potentially leave, but I chose not to. I fought with everything I had to keep this job as long as I could.
I’m a believer in the duality of hard work and fate. Things happen to us for a reason, but also, we must work for what we want.
I know that I will find work again. If I did it before, I will do it again.
