Lest we forget . . .

Posting news about horror, action and B-grade genre movies just doesn't seem right on a day when we remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice. Shawn and I are rarely sentimental, but Remembrance Day is one that warrants it.

Instead, we're going to play a piece of music that invokes all the emotion that should come with remembering those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom. I can't help but think of my grandfather, who landed at Juno Beach in Normandy on D-Day, when I hear it. I hope it causes all Basementites to pause and reflect.

Movie fans will know Samuel Barber's Adagio for Strings from Platoon, one of the better war movies to be sure. It's a damn fine movement of classic music.

Lest we forget.
