Okay, here's what you do. You Windows users press Play on one of these tunes, open Spider Solitaire, and play a two- or four-suit game to the jazz. When you've run out of jazz, just start over again. When you win a game, start another. You Macintosh users, click Play and do whatever quiet thing it is that you do to waste time. Enjoy!
Moonlight in Vermont - Gerry Mulligan
You Go to My Head - Art Pepper Quartet
Autumn Leaves - Chet Baker and Paul Desmond
Blue in Green - Miles Davis
So, anyway, yesterday I had some time, and I watched two movies from two separate eras: Bonnie and Clyde (1967) and From Dusk Till Dawn (1996). What a difference 29 years can make. Both movies start in Texas. Both are about a guy, a gal, and some guns. Bonnie and Clyde doesn't have any vampires, but it has cooler cars. From Dusk Till Dawn doesn't have the Great Depression as a backdrop, but it has good looking dancers. The earlier film seems to have a sexual subtext and a downbeat ending. The later film seems to have sort of a religious subtext and an upbeat ending. Go figure. (It's always best to keep these Compare and Contrast homework assignments brief and to-the-point, dontcha think?)
