Movies Are a Mother to Me

27 Feb

As anyone who knows me will tell you, there’s pretty much nothing more important to me than movies.  I mean, after water and oxygen and love and stuff.  But you know what I mean.  And so tonight, Oscar Night, is the most important night of the entire year.

I’ve tried to explain how important this event is to me, but honestly the only way to fully explain it, is with this absolutely lovely tribute from 1970 by Loudon Wainwright III:  “Movies Are a Mother to Me.”  For those of you keeping track, he also re-recorded it a million years later, in 2008, but the original is so much better and since I only want the best for you, here it is.
