I hate the Oscars. I usually haven’t seen most of the movies. The winners are often based on whatever is politically correct at the time, rather than talent and artist content. The actual event takes forever and I always fall asleep. So….
In protest I am watching The American Eagles on Showtime. No, it isn’t about birds. It’s a documentary about the Eagles Band. What a great band they were/are. I actually went to Winslow, Arizona about 7 years ago just to see that famous corner in Winslow, Arizona. A little mini park had been built and there was a wall mural. There was a major problem though. The building on the other side had burned and the real wall was hanging on by a wish and a prayer.
What appear to be windows on the wall is a mural. You can see the dude standing on the corner near the street lamp. There is a hideous chain link fence around the park now because of safety issues.
If you get Show Time or showtimeanytime.com, you should definitely catch the Documentary The American Eagles. The music is good and a pretty good history of one of the most popular rock groups in America. The Eagles are entering their 5th decade. Amazing.
