This is just a place to share my randomness. Politics, comic books, video games, movies, and the occasional hot woman are all welcome here.

1959: Black Orpheus
Marcel Camus’ Black Orpheus is an adaptation of the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice with Breno Mello and Marpessa Dawn playing Orfeu and Euridyce in this unique retelling of the myth. Camus transplants the story to a favela the days leading up to Carnaval in Rio de Janeiro. 
The film was split between Brazilian (location and actors), French (the director), and Italian (funding) production elements and it would go on to win the 1959 Palme d’Or - defeating the likes of Truffaut’s The 400 Blows. Its score by Luiz Bonfa, Antonio Carlos Jobim, and Joao Gilberto has been often adapted for orchestral, operatic, and jazz adaptations.

Given that Toledo only has the Mudhens, I’m generally bitter or indifferent when it comes to Ohio football (aside from my Buckeyes of course), but damn! Good stuff,  Ohio.
