Holy Grail Batman!

During a routine pre-caffeine check of my email, I find not one, but two long-sought-after items now available. First, I received an email from the composer of one of my favorite new piano pieces, who has graciously offered to provide me a score. I'll have more to say about her music in a future post. And second, Alejandro Jodorowsky's two great films, El Topo and The Holy Mountain, have finally been released on DVD, and are available through Netflix. Seeing El Topo was one of the defining film moments of my youth, and the Holy Mountain has existed in semi-nebulous, completely unlocatable, dark mists of time. I'm so excited about these two events I can't even practice!
