Introducing the Ragas Art by Henry McGuinn

Posted in Music, The Arts by guittard on January 30, 2009

Here are some paintings done by Henry McGuinn.  They are quite colorful and much like the “Yellow Submarine” cartoon of the Beatles.  During that time, Henry and I watched the Yellow Submarine a thousand times.

Thanks Henry.  The art is rad and really sums up my life in 2000.  Cheers.  Jim Guittard

To Sir With Love (A Must See Movie)

Posted in Bulgaria, Life, Movies by guittard on July 10, 2007

The 1967 movie is “To Sir With Love.” I recommend it highly. It’s about a black guy (Sidney Poitier) who goes to teach English in this rough (Bulgarian like) school in the outskirts of London, England. He throws the books out the window after much trial and error. But this inexperienced teacher keeps at it. Groovy music too. Seriously.
