I played this at a relatively low volume and didn't get the screechy effect that other people noticed. My ears are saved! For me this didn't start out as music, but as soon as the shimmers appeared and the words disappeared, my mind treated it as such. It was all crystalline and gorgeous and stuff.
I was born in 1980. I first remember hearing Whitney Houston singing "The Greatest Love of All"; I was in the car with my mother on the way to kindergarten. We ended up singing that song at our kindergarten graduation. Then I sang it at my mother's wedding: I was clinging to her skirt and ...

I watched this movie the same night that I watched The Black Swan; The Black Swan was SO BAD that I needed to watch something good to put my world back into balance. I'd read no reviews and seen no advertisements for The King's Speech, so I had no idea what I was about to watch. It was so lovely, al...
It could be that the movie was more profound than I realized, but I kept thinking that I would have most enjoyed this movie when I was fourteen or so.

Oh wow, that's a really well put-together gingerbread house! I host a Christmas party every year. While I've never personally put together a gingerbread house, I do set out graham crackers, icing, and candies and invite my guests to collaborate and construct a graham-cracker house. They've come up w...
