Across The Universe
My brother John and I are very close....I was the best "man" at his wedding! For the past four or five years, we've gotten together during football season to root for our beloved Patriots. Now that football season is over, John wanted to keep getting together, so he and his wife, Ruth, invited us over for a "movie night". Last night was our first one, and we had a great time. Since all gatherings for our family involve food, we ordered out pizza and talked and visited for a bit, then settled in to watch our movie. I had given Tag "Across the Universe" for Valentine's Day and we hadn't had time to watch it, so we brought it over. Since John and Ruth are huge Beatles fans as well, they were happy with our choice. The movie turned out to be fantastic. Within two or three songs, John and I decided we wanted the sound track. Ruth hopped right online and checked it out....sure enough it's available on DeepDiscount.com. We also decided it would make a fantastic stage play.....so if anyone out there ever hears of it coming to the stage....let us know! We sang along with some of the songs....the people in the movie who sang the Beatles covers did a great job. I'm not always a fan of people singing covers....sometimes they change them so much the song is unrecognizable. But in this case, they did a phenomenal job. It was a good night, and we plan to do more. There's nothing I love more than getting together with family!
