My impressions of Cameron Crowe. First time I interviewed him was for “Vanilla Sky.” Tom Cruise was also there and sort of stole the spotlight. This time around, for “Elizabethtown,” Crowe was on his own. My first question was about how he uses music as a character in his films. He agreed and talked about a list he keeps of music. When he wants to express something specific in a scene he uses the music to do so. He’s the kind of guy I wouldn’t mind hanging out with on a Saturday afternoon just talking about movies and music. His movie is getting mixed reviews, but I loved it.

Oh, in the it’s all about me department… Romance junkies did a fun interview that is up on their site I also received a call to speak at a big convention in Palm Desert next year. Just came out of the blue. Pretty cool.
