"Oh George, not the livestock"

I happened to catch one of my favorite movies on TBS the other night. O Brother, Where Art Thou?, released in 2000, was written and directed by the Coen brothers (Ethan and Joel).

O Brother is loosely based on Homer's Odyssey. The movie takes place in depression era Mississippi and recounts the travels of three escapted convicts and they seek treasure.

Extremely well written, the movie is a treasure-trove of memorable quotes. Another treat is the bluegrass music contained in the soundtrack, which won 5 Grammy's.

I'll watch the DVD tonight as a nice diversion from the election news.
