A Small Rant

One of my classes (Evangelism) uses a lot of film. Contextualization, you know.

Anyway, I'm supposed to watch the rest of Malcolm X today -- I just finished Amistad.

What a wonderful film (painful, but wonderful.) One small gripe, that I am sure is a sign of a true geekette.

When the drab and morose group of Christians went around, they were singing. That's probably accurate. They were singing "Amazing Grace." That's OK, because it was written around 1799 and its history is all tied up in slavery. Good choice. But they were not using the 1840 harmonizations. AARRGGHH!!! No!!! That arrangement is SO late 20th century. Not good.

See? I'm a geek. (Or is that a Nerd?? I never remember.)
