Since mainline cinema has become a cesspool, I have been seeing only independent movies. Peresopolis is about an Iranian girl living through all that has transpired in her country as well as trying to grow up in a repressive culture. I'm not a cartoon fan but a good story can even make a cartoon meaningful.
This Saturday we went to see the bluegrass band Dehlia Low at the Feed and Seed. I'm constantly amazed at the talent here in Asheville. Last Saturday the previous band's last song was interrupted by a dozen screaming kids fleeing to the stage when they saw a mouse in the kids playroom . Since this hundred year old feed store is so full of holes and we have all this food I'm surprised we don't have bears.
