This morning I got up early (something I hate to do on the weekend) and drove to Santa Monica for a special screening of the new documentary, Phil Ochs: There But For Fortune. It's a great, heartbreaking movie. Ochs's music has meant a lot to me for many years, but I would think the film would have great impact even without this--as a character study, a musical history, and a telling of recent American (and world) history and protest that's all too relevant today. During the Q&A after the film, someone--maybe Phil's brother Michael Ochs?--said that if Phil were still alive today, he would be in Wisconsin.

I blatantly need to track that down. Maybe one of the Freeview channels will pick it up.
