So...this just in: Martin Scorsese, greatest of all living filmmakers, now has a MySpace page.
It could be construed as an old guy jumping the shark...or as shameless self-promotion for the Rolling Stones doc, Shine a Light. But in actuality, the site is great. Very straightforward, but elegant and interesting. Marty's personality is all over the place....from the videos to his bio information. As always, the man comes across as thoughtful, inquisitive, thoroughly philisophical, and passionate beyond all comprehension about the art of film and filmmaking.
Scorsese is one to mold, adapt, grow, and expand as time progresses. You see it plain as day in his films...and here is a real life example.
K and I have a MySpace page...with nothing on it. Opened an account one lazy day and then never did anything about it. Plus, I have always sort-of been sour on sites like MySpace.
But for the mere chance to add myself as Martin Scorsese's friend on MySpace...we may just have to start uploading information.
Because at least for now, it will be as close as I come to shaking hands with my greatest inspiration.
