Post Screening

Posted on Thursday, March 11th, 2010 at 10:35 pm

Back from Houston and the private screening of For the Sake of the Song. I have to say that it exceeded my expectations considerably.  I had a great time watching it both times, and there were parties at the Fair afterward each night.  What a great time, and what a feeling of contentment and justification for my past associations with the Fair.

.

And seeing photos of mine projected over 30 feet tall was a real hoot.

.

I also learned that Lyle Lovett got his first stage experience at the same campus coffee house where I was the first person to ever draw an SRO crowd (Mance Lipscomb was the second).

.

There is so much to tell that I could never cover it all here, so I won’t even try.  I’ll just say that I’m much too pleased with having been a part of the film, and that it was a true honor to attend the private screening with so many household names.  People say that I’m still glowing from the experience.

There are times when being a visual artist really pays off.  It might not be immensely rewarding al the time, but there are times when the esteem issues simply  can not be dismissed.

.

If you get a chance to view the film, do.  It is hands down one of the best documentaries and a pure labor of love that can not be denied.
