May you continue to inspire us, Arthur Penn.

The legendary film, Bonnie and Clyde (1966)  directed by Penn and starring Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty, will always be one of my favorite films. Mr. Penn was a master at portraying social outsider themes and a man who stuck to his artistic principles.

Rest in Peace.

This film inspired a new generation with the story of Bonnie and Clyde and continues to do so with subsequent generations.

Me, being inspired by the real Bonnie Parker and Bonnie of 1966. 😉

Thunderstorms and Joe Meek.

Sitting through a thunderstorm,
Acoustically magnificent,
A dull unified sound from the left,
A clamoring crash from the right
echoing down a hall way
I have been channelling
much like he, himself,
would have believed
his energy
Mr. Joe Meek –
The Strange and Legendary.
Innovative with a “secret box”,
Ahead of this time,
Short-tempered,
Good-willed,
Believed his walls were bugged
and,
alas,
provoked
into
the
final
hours
choosing
to
take
his
life
and
that
of
his
landlady
the
same
day
his
hero
Buddy
his channelled
from the hidden Holly
guide
died.
