The Spin I’m In: Opening Night

restaurant_sign.JPGI have a movie premier to attend this evening. It would be more glamorous if my hair didn’t have two inches of dark roots followed by a foot of bleach blonde. I haven’t been to the hairdresser in a while. I’m not sweating it, I’ll make it work.

The film is The Life of Reilly starring the one and only Charles Nelson Reilly and based on the one-man play about his life. I did some music for the film so I’m excited, even though I’ve seen it many times. It’s gotten really great reviews at film festivals and it’s finally going public. If you ever got a kick out of the late Mr. Reilly, you will love this film. His life story is fascinating. The film opens nationwide over the next few weeks. You can find out more here:
