In 2009, I published a post on this blog about Sarah Dooley, which ended with the words:
I predict she is going to make it big. I’m not sure how, but remember you heard it here first.
A couple of months later, I received a letter out of the blue from a legit movie producer who said he was writing to thank me for that post because from it he learned how talented Sarah is. He wrote that he had just signed a contract with her to develop a screenplay.
Fast forward to the present, and while I can’t find any movies made with Sarah’s scripts, I was happy to hear this NPR interview with her about an album she just released. The album is called “Stupid Things.” My favorite song, “Gym Looks Nice,” is a school dance tone poem that is characteristically moving. My daughter tells me that at one point, it made it into the top twenty downloads on iTunes. Sarah’s also released a music video of her song “Peonies.”
