"Though I hadn't seen him in over twenty years, I knew I'd miss him forever"

"Most actors will go their entire careers without doing a movie like Stand By Me, or working with a director like Rob Reiner. I got to do both when I was 12. For a long, long time, I felt like I needed to top or equal that, and it wasn’t until I was in my early 30s that I accepted that it’s unlikely to happen -- movies like Stand By Me come along once in a generation."
The cast of Stand By Me(link has autoplaying sound,) recently recorded some interviews to promote the re-release of the movie on Blu-Ray. Wil Wheaton has blogged about reuniting with the cast and missing River Phoenix. (Via)

Stand By Me

Playing for Change - Peace Through Music (flash) is a documentary film by Mark Johnson. He traveled the world and recorded various musicians playing the song Stand By Me. Each musician was charged with layering a single song over the previous artist thus building upon it. Over thirty musicians globally participated in this project and not one artist knew the other or came in contact initially. [more inside]

Slashdot has an interview up with Chris Lehmann,

Slashdot has an interview up with Chris Lehmann, a good friend of mine that teaches High School in New York. Chris somehow has managed to marry hyper-energy, geekiness, and a Stand By Me teaching attitude to make Beacon a great example of how public school can still work. Chris rocks. You should tell him so.
