I haven't been to a sign making party since High School. Too bad I don't live in Colorado.
I have actually voted already. My state makes it very easy to vote. I get the ballot in the mail. I fill it out and I can either mail it in or drop it in a ballot box at any local library. With a system like that it would be rather lazy not to vote, I think.
I hope some who get to attend the rallies and get to meet Kevin will blog about it! I'd love to read about their experience!!

According to the press release:
Universal Republic/Universal Records South will release the debut album from Kevin Costner & Modern West, titled Untold Truths, on November 11. Though best known for his acting career, Costner is no stranger to the art of making music and songwriting. The band’s history goes back some 20 years when Kevin first met band mate John Coinman in Los Angeles during an acting workshop. The two began playing and writing music together and soon after started a band called “Roving Boy.” As Kevin’s star began to rise, he was unable to devote much time to the band. However, he and some of the band members continued behind-the-scenes playing, writing, and recording anytime they could throughout the years. A few years back the itch became stronger for Costner to start performing on a more regular basis. Costner recalls a performance back in August 2005 and remarks, “I remember looking out into the crowd, thinking ‘this just feels right’.” And with that, his passion continued to grow with the end product of that passion being the debut album, Untold Truths. The album is comprised of 12 original tracks all written or co-written by Kevin Costner & Modern West (Modern West is John Coinman, Blair Forward, Teddy Morgan, Larry Cobb and Park Chisolm). Untold Truths is produced by Teddy Morgan and John Coinman
1. Long Hot Night (Coinman/Morgan)
2. 90 Miles An Hour (Chisolm/Costner/Morgan)
3. Hey Man What About You? (Coinman)
4. Superman 14 (Coinman/Morgan)
5. Don't Lock'em Away (Coinman/Costner/Morgan)
6. Down in Nogales (Coinman)
7. Every Intention (Coinman/Rigby)
8. 5 Minutes From America (Coinman/Costner/Morgan)
9. The Sun Will Rise Again (Chisolm/Coinman/Costner/Morgan)
10. Backyard (Coinman/Costner/Morgan)
11. Leland Iowa (Coinman)
12. Gotta Get Away (Coinman/Costner/Morgan)
They have a Myspace Page:
And there’s information about the band at:
They sold a 4 song CD from their Myspace page which must have done well enough for Universal Records South’s interests. And everyone who bought the 4 song CD is probably really looking forward to this full CD. I know I am!!

It's not that I have only KC movies - no, I have a collection of 61 other DVDs and 90 VHS. More importantly, my WISH LIST is hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of movies long! Maybe thousands, actually. LOL! So I like a lot of different movies and actors, from the past and in the present. The first movie I ever saw of Kevin's was Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves. I belonged to Columbia House Movie Club (still do) and I had neglected to send back the selection card and got the movie in the mail. (Don’t have to mess with those selection cards anymore.) It wasn't one I would have ordered because I knew nothing about it or him but since it was my mistake I kept it and paid for it and I watched it. Well, it became one of my favorite movies from the first time I watched it! It doesn’t matter whether Kevin had an English accent or not - I LOVE THIS MOVIE!! And the scene after the Sheriff and witch are killed, Robin and Marian come together and she says, “You came for me” and he says, “I would die for you”, well, that’s my favorite scene! And the theme song, Everything I Do (I Do It For You) became my most favorite of all my favorite songs. (And I have a LOT of favorite songs!!) From that point on I wished I could have a man in my life who could say the words of that song to me and mean it!!! In searching the internet I’ve found that there are many others who love this movie and song just like I do. According to Wikipedia:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Everything_I_Do,_I_Do_It_For_You
It spent seven weeks at number one in the United States Billboard Hot 100, sixteen consecutive weeks at number one on the UK Singles Chart (the longest in British chart history), and nine weeks atop the RPM singles chart in Canada. The song’s been recorded by at least 30 other artists. According to Box Office Mojo: http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=robinhoodprinceofthieves.htm
The movie had a Domestic gross of $165,493,908 and a Foreign gross of $225,000,000 for a total of $390,493,908. Impressive! Clearly I’m not the only one who loved it!! I can’t help but wonder what the sales and rentals netted. I have both the VHS and the DVD Extended Version. It can sometimes still be seen on TV. This is a very good link to check and see what Kevin Costner movies are going to be on:
http://www.tvguide.com/celebrities/kevin-costner/tv-listings/160571 One thing I’ve noticed, in searching the Blogs through Google, there are a very large number of “Free Full Movie Download” sites for Kevin’s movies. How can this be? How can they give away a movie that should be paid for? This must be illegal but is rampant! And some of them are now using the word “safely”. Hmm…! I have to wade through pages and pages of all these download links just to find the true blogs!! If I could have my wish these illegal download sites wouldn’t exist at all!!
I have a lot of wishes………

I decided to start a blog of my own, putting some of the things I find about Kevin on it. Good things, of course! I am a fan of his movies and I am a fan of the man but I am more than a fan. I have a personal connection to Kevin that I won't get into here and now but I will say that it is a very unique connection. I would still be a fan of his movies and a fan of the man even if I didn't have that personal connection to him.
More coming soon.....
