Le Tour!


For those of you who care, THE bike race of the year started today. I haven't watched it yet (I'm waiting for the 9:30 showing), but I"m itching for the Tour de France to get rolling in my household.

And for those of you who might not have ever seen or heard of it, The Triplets Of Belleville (pictured above) is an excellent animated movie that is tangentially connected to the great race. Don't let the French scare you away, there is actually very little dialogue, but yet so much is conveyed. Well worth a rental and a bag of popcorn.

I avoided the computer yesterday to dodge the possibility of seeing any mention of it. One of the best prologue's in a while. Amazing stage. Amazing start to this year's race, which already promises drama.

Smart strategy!

Also, I love drama from men in spandex shorts! What's not to love about that?!

I absolutely adore the soundtrack for this movie (and the film itself). Did you know that Maxime Morin (DJ Champion) is the -M- on the credits? I love him, too. :P
