Prepare to enter a world of both shadow and substance

Take a journey of body, mind and spirit where you'll encounter things you won't find anywhere else.

Eighteenth Annual Ten Commandments Post

Being that time of the year again, I'm posting about my all-time favorite movie - The Ten Commandments once againI've seen it so many times that I forget just how many times I have seen it.  But I have to tell you, when this mountain comes on the screen at the opening of the movie, I start getting geared up to see it once again:

Now, most people are used to seeing this logo for the opening of your usual Paramount movie:

But, since the director of The Ten Commandments, Cecil B. De Mille, made epic motion pictures, he got his own customized Paramount logo to open the film:

I can't describe the feeling it gives me, even though I've seen it many times before.  But the title screen comes on and I'm ready for almost a four hour ride once again:

So tune in to ABC, (if they're showing it again this year), or grab your VHS tape, or your DVDs or Bluray discs and join me for the ride.
