GRIZZLEY MAN was a confusing movie. Through the whole thing I was wondering what could have compelled Werner Herzog to make the film. It gave the impression that Treadwell was not mentally stable and was trying to assimilate with the bears more than he was trying to protect them. The movie made him look like a nut case, so why make the movie? You know? Beautiful footage and a tragic tale. I still think about it and this haunting song you have listed saddens me. Treadwell is dead. Sad.

Yeah, Timothy Treadwell was very human in that way. I guess the filmmaker was impressed enough by the story to document it, but was obligated to point out that this was a troubled person. I hope you enjoyed the other pieces in the list, such as the upbeat Magneta Lane tune.

Yeah ok whatever to that drama. I love Spiral Beach "Day OK". It took a few listens but it is a new favorite. But the best song from you recently is Hot Hot Heat "Goodnight Goodnight"!
