Audio diaries.

I introduced L to the movie Almost Famous recently. It's one of my favourites and I wanted her to understand why I always laugh when I yell "Don't take drugs!" when she's going out with her friends. Ok, I haven't done that in a while but I used to say it all the time.

She enjoyed watching the movie for the first time and I enjoyed seeing it again. Great music and ohhhh my, that Billy Crudup. At one point, L said, "He's good-looking." Yes, yes he is.

After the movie, we watched the special features on the DVD. In an interview with Cameron Crowe, he said that for years, decades even, he has made a cassette every month of the music he listened to most that month. He said it was even better than a written journal for reminding him of what happened.

I think that is such a cool idea.
