Alvin & the Chipmunks would sound better too, but that was better, thanks.  Nimble fingers.

Okie dokie.  This is a bit of a style change.

More than a bit of music, actually, but a pretty inspirational story I never knew. 

https://vimeo.com/143462662

New York Doll, about New York Dolls bassist Arthur "Killer" Kane.  The New York Dolls were a proto punk band mostly known for spinning off the career of David Johansen, aka Buster Poindexter.  Back to the flick, it's the story of Kane's life.  You can see sadness in him, knowing how he pissed away his chance at the big time because of alcohol, a little jealousy of Johansen for his success, yet he's happy where he's at, a Mormon, believe it or not.  And you can see the happiness in him when he finally gets his shot to do it right, as a New York Dolls reunion is scheduled.  And ultimately sadness, knowing he died just three weeks after that concert, of leukemia.

If you like the music, a complex character, and an emotional roller coaster ride, give it a watch.
