I will be doing something for this, I have more chance of pooing out diamonds than I do of winning, but it feels like a lush thing to do.The President of the French Republic, Nicolas Sarkozy, has signed a decree appointing M° Ennio Morricone to the rank of Knight in the Order of the Legion of Honor, about time I reckon, the man totally deserves it. Also the music for the good bad and the ugly has been nominated to go into the musical hall of fame. Seriously, I thought it was already there.
