What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Synchronicity

Saw Captain America for the first time last night (yeah, I know, but I've been really busy). The one thing I want to comment about, thought, is I'm now in love with Steve Viola. He's the designer behind the end title sequence. They used vintage propaganda posters to develop the titles and, I'll admit, left me in total designer squee mode. So that's why it's sad to hear that Joe Simon passed on the day before I saw the modern movie based on his creation.

The end title sequence for "Captain America" was fantastic! I would never have seen it if you hadn't posted a link. Just not into superhero movies, I guess.

When I showed it to my Steve, he mentioned how much he had liked it, too, and he also told me I should watch the opening title sequence for "Flubber." Found that on YouTube and enjoyed it, too!

I'll have to look that one up. Thanks, Sheila.
