a good kind of sad

I recently heard that Julien Temple had made a documentary about the late, oh-so-great, Joe Strummer (Joe Strummer: The Future is Unwritten). It looks like it'll be released sometime this May.

I'm very happy that this film has been made because, while his fans know and appreciate what a genius he was, it's never a bad thing to keep reminding folks about who he was. I was struck, to the point of being completely choked up, when I heard that Mr Temple had used tape from Joe's radio shows and other stuff so that Joe himself could narrate big chunks of the story.

It's going to be difficult to watch but I can't wait to see it.
