Last night I had the pleasure to enjoy a documentary on Patti Smith called "Dream of Life". God bless Patti Smith, really. I've written her off for so many years, mainly because she didn't sound like all my favorite artists. For that, I'm ashamed. But since life makes so many twists and turns, I was able to make up for all the lost time of not listening to her impressive work.
Recently I got a hold of most of her well known records (Horses, Radio Ethiopia, Easter and Wave) and now I can honestly say that I couldn't go through the day without listening to at least one song from Patti. She's rebellious, reflective, loving, revolutionary and artistic all at the same time. All of those facets are reflected on "Dream of Life", one doc I truly recommend. Apart from her runarounds with famous and fashionable people, she's a force to be reckon with, as far as I'm concerned.
"Life is an adventure of our own design, intercepted by fate and a series of lucky and unlucky accidents"
