The Last Waltz. Film of The Band's last concert in SF.

Dear god the richness and depth of talent. Bliss it was in that dawn to be alive, but to be young was very heaven. With apologies to Wordsworth.

I saw The Last Waltz in the Met Theatre, and the place was packed.

I bothered to look this up.
Pelorus itself doesn't have a town or village however it seems the series may be based on a tiny town in the area called Havelock. That's just a 90 minute drive for us over a horrible switch back road. Havelock is peddled as the gateway to the Marlborough Sounds and a centre for green lipped mussels. It was Havelock where I saw my first dead boar on the back of a Ute.
It does seem sadly though that most of the series wasn't filmed on the South Island at all but up beyond Auckland in far Northland.

Shtisel fans - clear your calendars! I believe the first episode will be a tearjerker.

OMG. Just watched the trailer. Everyone is seven years older than they were in Series 2. Why am I so attracted to orthodox women in wigs? I don’t get it.

I posted about the program with you in mind. Yup we read about it too, and yes it was a shame it was filmed in Auckland. It doesn’t look like there will be a 2nd series, although the storyline left it wide open.

Just finished watching a Your Honor, starring Brian Cranston. 10 eps, on Carve. A judge’s son accidentally kills the son of the boss of an organised crime gang. A little slow in places but worth sticking with it.

Countryfile on the BBC, lambing time. and there has just been a section on sheep counting in ancient time, which was basically using the Anglo-Saxon counting system which for 1, 2, 3 Which is Yan, Tan, Tether in one on the Yorksire dales, The same sysem was used in Lincolnshire, Yan, Tan, Tethera. This counting only went up to 20, might be a problem with a big flock, so they swapped a pebble from on pocket to another, then started again. When I was at school, (many years agp) out school magazine was called... Yan, Tan Tethera. Yes from Lincolnshir, I still can recite a poem in the Lincolnshire dialect remembered from my childhood

That was an excellent series. We watched it a couple of years ago. Great choice!

Calvary (2014). It's billed as a drama/dark comedy, and while the latter is certainly sprinkled through it, it didn't lighten the even darker drama for me. Brendan Gleeson is wonderful as the priest of a small Irish town. It's a confronting movie and definitely only for adults.
