As an avid skier there is one brand of movie that I really really wanted to see each year. That was a Warren Miller film. While I was learning to ski and even competing as a skier it was massive fun to start off each season in a room full of other skiing fans watching the latest Warren Miller ski movie. They were fun. They were funny. They also included amazing skiing shots. Lately in the last several years I’ve noticed that warren’s production company has decidedly stopped using humor and bloopers in their films. The skiing is still amazing, but the charm has dried up. I still watch the latest Warren Miller flick each year, but I now find myself wishing for Warren’s brand of humor and gift of giving humility to what makes the sport fun and not just a commercial for a particular resort featured in a film. It could be high time for another ski moving making genius to come along and steal the throne.
Which is what I’m thinking about when it comes to the likes of today’s song. It’s irreverent and funny. Much like a Warren Miller film used to be. Carla has created a little ditty that will make you laugh and then sit there thinking, now why the hell didn’t I think of creating something like that? It’s not the most perfected piece of music but it has a quality that sticks into you. That’s when music becomes powerful, when it can stick into you. Now go copyright your word!
