And in that way, he becomes immortal."

The movie stands the test of time: the dancing is perfect, the tone consistent, it's funny and satirical, there are moments touching and sad. Gene Kelly forever!

Corey - 5/23 - The Natural, by Bernard Malamud, on Plaid Collared ShirtI read this book during my sophomore year of high school, in my Honors American Literature class. Thanks to Mr. Biggs for teaching us about Baseball, Arthurian Legend, and The American Dream using this wonderful and tragic story. Some words, from the Prologue - "She said sweetly, 'Roy, will you be the best there ever was in the game?' 'That's right.' She pulled the trigger (thrumb of bull fiddle). The bullet cut a silver line across the water. He sought with his bare hands to catch it, but it eluded him and, to his horror, bounced into his gut."

Here are the final words of this terrifying story of human nature - "And in the middle of them, with filthy body, matted hair, and unwired nose, Ralph wept for the end of innocence, the darkness of man's heart, and the fall through the air of the true, wise friend called Piggy. The officer, surrounded by these noises, was moved and a little embarrassed. He turned away to give them time to pull themselves together; and waited, allowing his eyes to rest on the trim cruiser in the distance."

Corey - 5/8 - Scary Close, by Donald MillerThis isn't my favorite Donald Miller book, but it's general theme of intimacy and vulnerability hit home. The book chronicles his transition from a mistrusting, lonely,  high-walled child, to a gracious and vulnerable man seeking true and intimate relationships. He says, "True intimacy is just like that: it's the food you grow from well-tilled ground. And like most things good for us, it's an acquired taste."

My favorite is, 'the doorway to God'"

Corey - 4/5 - The Last Five Years and Once Playbill
Corey - 4/5 - The Last Five Years and Once PlaybillBoth of these musicals are heartfelt and minimal and lovely. I saw The Last Five Years with my friend Taryn in NYC a few years ago. It is a story of a couple falling in and out of love in different directions (they sing alone for most of the show; she goes backwards in time from divorce to meet-cute, he moves forwards from first date to affair). It's heartbreaking, and I probably cried (and it's likely Taryn did too), but the music has stuck with me. Once is a stage adaptation of the film of the same name; I saw it last year with a few friends, sisters Rebekah and Ruthi. We grew up performing in musicals together, so it was so great revisiting the theater with them. Some words from The Last Five Years - "If I didn't believe in you, we'd never have gotten this far. If I didn't believe in you, and all the 10,000 women you are, if I didn't think you could do anything you ever wanted to, if I wasn't certain that you'd come through somehow, the fact of the matter is, Cathy, I wouldn't be standing here now."
