I watched an incredible documentary on Friday night and I've been thinking about it all weekend. It's called Searching for Sugar Man and it is an amazing tale, beautifully depicted. I think what I liked most about the story of Rodriguez is the the idea that you can make something, send it out into the world, and that it can then have a life of its own, in this case, without the artist even knowing about it. I wonder if this is more or less likely to happen now that we have the Internet. I guess there is the possibility of a wider reach but not the anonymity... Anyway, watch it.
