John Quiggin is concerned about the uncoolness of his genuine affection for ducks flying across the wall. As I commented on his post.
I like the Sound of Music – the movie. Partly because of associations with my Austrian Dad who could have been one of the kids (and his sister looks amazingly like Maria von Trapp). But it’s also a damn good movie. Good story, well paced, well shot, good songs, well sung. Da woiks. My twelve year old daughter is just figuring out that sentimentality is uncool and thinks I don’t ‘get it’. I do get it. It’s a sentimental movie. It’s also an excellent one.
So Troppodillians, here’s your opportunity to own up to reclaim your uncoolness. Confessions please. . . .
