Hallelujah. Maybe.


Lipstick.com, which is vaguely amusing/informative when I remember to check it often enough to not be totally overwhelmed, informs me that there's a Jeff Buckley biopic in the works. I'm skeptical, of course, but interested. His mother is working on it, and she says that she is "inspired by the success and integrity of recent music biopics such as Ray and Walk the Line." Which is... hmm. I mean, sure, if you're going to make a movie you want it to be successful, but that comment sounds awfully close to "I want to profit from my son's death." I'm sure that's not how she meant it, but it still sounds a bit odd.

Of course, my other main impression from the Yahoo page was "Wow, he was cute!" Although I don't know why I'm surprised, since Defulct was the one to get me into Buckley, and we all know how he chooses his musicians. For example.

Im glad its not raining. I finshed two books and reviewed them on the blog. I'm I supposed to tell you or just wing it?

Maybe she meant it more as in Hollywood hasn't made a complete travesty of their lives and is somewhat faithful to the actual life, no matter how it played out. And since movies worship money, the fact that biographies have been making money means that they'll tell his story, and keep him alive in celluloid at least.

Or something to that effect. Hallelujah! I love JB.

Cute. And also a total flake. Remind me to show you the Sin- DVD...

There's a Leonard Cohen documentary opening in mid-July that I'm awfully excited about (the writer of Hallelujah!).
