FMD: December 28, 2012

No post so far today, so I'll pinch hit for AMR. I'm guessing a super special Best of 2012 post will be forthcoming in the next few days.

The Runner family is enjoying a free month of Hulu Plus, and I've listened to a few concert films and music-related documentaries during work. One I particularly enjoyed was 2008 SXSW Film Festival Audience Award winner Béla Fleck: Throw Down Your Heart, in which Béla is in Africa exploring the origins of the banjo, and reintroducing it to the peoples there. There is some awesome music from many different countries featuring several different styles and instruments. Check it out if you get the chance.
