Obligatory YouTube — Coltrane doing “My Favorite Things” (coutesy of Astrotype):
I didn’t watch the entire Democratic Convention, but I watched enough to be very affected by many of the speeches, especially Michelle and Barack Obama’s words and presentation. I was very impressed by both of them.
But then the production, the media production itself, disturbed me, from the music to the pageantry. Seemed cheesy like the Academy Awards, which is so strange, because those awards are for some of the most talented directors and cinematographers and set designers and yet it always looks so cheesy on the teevee.
