I am so proud of complete strangers – Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova. I’m inspired by their music, and ernestly thrilled for their success. I ended up seeing “once” on a date night with my husband Jered. I just randomly picked it off the shelf not knowing what it was about (I’m a huge fan of “under the radar” movies like this one – which is not under the radar anymore that’s for sure!). Seeing them play, seeing their sheer unexpected joy at the oscars, I was just really touched. Congratulations to them! And Marketa’s speech about hope for the indie artist really hit home. I have hope!
