I watched this tonight; it was interesting. It wasn't what I thought it was going to be; but it was interesting. It's called Such Hawks Such Hounds. I have long been interested in the history of music, and when I ran across this, the description suggested it was going to be something of a history of heavy rock. I'm not a big fan of heavy metal, but I can appreciate musicians and musicianship, and again, I like studying the history of music. So I watched it. All 84 minutes. It was interesting.

I think some of you will like this, and some of you won't. For those that will, I wanted to let you know about it. I actually liked it. By the time you get to the end, you've listened to a number of people talk about their music, about the history of certain types of music that were important to them, and about their lives. It's human. It's people playing the music that they want to play. Oh, and there's some really good artwork by some talented artists, and interviews with them as well. And it's a statement about where the music industry is too. So, if you have an hour and a half, and you like documentaries about music and musicians, and especially if you like .. whatever kind of music it is these people are playing, then you might find this interesting.
