On another note, the opening of the Tribeca Film Festival, featuring Al Gore, was a testament to what one individual can do with dedication, vision and well... he is pretty brilliant too.
As Martin Scorsese said as he introduced our former president, "Before Al Gore, global warming was an inconvenient theory, now it is an inconvenient truth."
"President Gore" has changed the debate on the environment and now together we can all change the landscape. The opening of The Tribeca Film Festival was a joyful celebration. A coming together of art and music and a message, and boy do those S.O.S. people know how to deliver a message. SOS, for those of you not in the know, was one of the sponsors of the evening and they announced worldwide concerts across the world on 7/7/07 ala Live Aid called "Live Earth".
The evening began with S.O.S. in Morse code, a musical arrangement that was chilling and effective and really beautiful at the same time. Don't you love it when those Madison Avenue people make you feel things you swear you are too sophisticated to feel?
Well, Mr. President... we know you've had enough of presidential politics but we are going to draft you and you will be reelected and the people will finally have their say.
Incidentally, I do understand saving the planet is a full time job...but if you have the time to catch a movie at the festival, my movie, The Man of Two Havanas, features some of the bastards (Oops! sorry Tipper) who stole our election. Love to see you there.
