Finally!  Six long years since the last Clint Eastwood movie!  Talk about a dry spell!  Well worth the wait.  I saw this again Wednesday night.  I may see it one more time before itís gone from the cinemas.  I enjoyed The Mule very much.  I found nothing wong with it and look forward to seeing it again.

My guess is Thunderbolt & Lightfoot, Eastwood telling Bridges about a heist heíd been involved in.

I gave this another viewing this weekend.  Not as good as the Leone trilogy, but still very enjoyable.

Funny thing is, Gant only ďthinks in RussianĒ once, the other pilot commands from him are verbal.

I donít recall wondering in prior viewings how strange it was that Gant was running from a U.S. military helicopter, surely he recognized it... Of course, his PTSD couldíve been triggered by the sudden appearance of the copter.  I canít remember if thatís explained in the novel.  I enjoyed reading it and the sequel, Firefox Down!, very much. 

Still, it was nice revisiting this film again.  I would edit it to make it tighter, more suspenseful.  30-40 minutes could easily be scrapped.

Had I sat down to watch this movie straight on from beginning to end, Iíd have dozed off.  It was perfect having it on as I wrapped Christmas presents.  Firefox was the very first ticket Iíd bought for a large screen Eastwood movie and for that reason itís special to me even though itís not a favorite. 

It was a nice walk down memory lane.

Thanks, Gant.  What I love about cds is the convenience.  It took a while to jump ship, but thatís why I love Spotify.  Tina & I are enjoying building a vinyl collection together and Iím experiencing music Iíve not heard at all and other albums Iíve not heard in years. 

Iím not a big fan of double albums on vinyl because with CDs Iíd listen to them without having to flip over to the other side....three times!  Still, that didnít stop me from buying Yellow Brick Road, Born To Run and some greatest hits compilations.  Iím considering Physical Graffiti, Tommy and Pinball Wizard but refuse to buy The Wall or The Beatlesí ďWhiteĒ album. 

In a sense, I can relate to why vinyl fans were sad to see the format all but disappear but am glad and fortunate it has made a comeback.  Lucky for me, technology has made the transition easy not only in moving forward with Spotify, but in stepping back with vinyl. 
With these, I have the luxury of enjoying both worlds.

Clint Eastwood, 88, Shocks Fans As Heís Pictured With ĎSecret Daughterí & His 8 Kids At Premiere

Do I have six kids, or only five? 😎

Turns out Mr. Eastwood is father to eight.  So great to have them and many others there to support his latest film.

Now that I have Spotify, I find myself not buying CDs.  Iím on the fence on whether to even bother anymore.  I now have more vinyl than compact discs.  While I still prefer cds because the occasional popping sound on vinyl is rattling, unnerving and aggravating I may limit myself to mega cd compilations on The King but even the majority of those are on Spotify.  If not for discovering the musical App, I wouldíve purchased the recently released expanded cd edition of The Beatlesí White Album.  Although itís my least favorite by them, it would still be worth collecting if I were still buying cds.

I find myself buying cds for gifts rather than for myself these days.  I enjoyed Robert Plantís Carry Fire album so much that I wanted to share it with friends of music that I thought would appreciate it and purchased 6 copies!  🤪  Youíre welcome, Mr. Plant.

Whatís funny is the last time I was in Bull Moose records I noticed a guy checking out Carry Fire on vinyl.  I told him I love it and think itís a masterpiece.  That convinced him to make the purchase.

I remember the advent of cds.  Theyíve come a long way and still have a lot to offer.  Iíd hate to see them disappear completely, like VHS and 8-Track tapes.  Unlike vinyl, I doubt theyíll ever make a comeback.

My man is releasing another starring role film this week, so I decided to watch the 3 Leone westerns yesterday. Westerns have been a favorite movie genre for as long as I can remember and this is my favorite trilogy by anyone.  Just incredible.  I loved revisiting these again, something I havenít done in over a year when I had the opportunity to see them on the big screen in Cambridge, Massachusetts.  Watching them again is a great primer for The Mule this Friday.

What a great film.  To me, the best Rock & Roll biopic to date.
