Grab Bag Friday: Are You Sleeping?

I know this blog is already a bit overloaded on references to The Point, but last night, Kevin and I went to see a fantastic (really, fantastic) grade school version of the movie. One of my music students played Oblio and sang a great solo in Me and My Arrow and another was a hilarious third of the Pointed Man (or in this play, as my female student very adamantly pointed out, the "Pointed Person").

It was so much fun to see the kids enjoying all the great Harry Nilsson songs, and truly jamming out to This Is the Town and These Are the People. Plus, we got to eat delicious chocolate cupcakes (with points!) at the bake sale intermission. Hooray Woodside School!

I'll leave you with my second favorite song from the movie (I already posted about my first favorite). I know, I know, it's weird. The animation is weird. The lyrics are weird. The whole movie is weird. But it's brilliant. You just have to go with it. As the Rock Man would say, "You see what you want to see, you hear what you want to hear." I can dig it. I can dig it.
