About the Beer: Bridge Over The River “Chai” comes by its name from the movie The Bridge on the River Kwai. A great movie, but Covered Bridge managed to one up the film. One of the Top 5 beers that the Ottawa region has ever produced in my opinion! Not only is the beer great, but the people at Covered Bridge are too. Walking in, smiles from employees and owners come naturally.

After appearing on the movie Garden State, The Shins catapulted to indie stardom with their well-placed songs.
Seu Jorge is an actor who also plays music as displayed here in the The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou soundtrack. A cover of David Bowie’s hit – David Bowie is also an actor – Life on Mars was also a TV show.
Frances Farmer was a film star of the ’30s and ’40s who was involuntarily incarcerated in a mental institution. She was one of the first starlets to be taken down by the Hollywood machine.
Marie Antoinette is a period piece. Did they go with of the period music? No… They did not! Aphex Twins, Squarpusher, and The Cure to name a few. I fear the soundtrack is better than the movie.
Bill Murray is the best. Everybody knows it… Fun fact: Bill Murray has impeccable musical taste. In between takes, he puts on his iPod and entertains the crew.
Arnold Schwarzenegger was a specimen! Let there be no doubt. Here he is trying to pump you up!
Not on a soundtrack but on a trailer for HBO’s The Leftovers. You now want to see the show? Why am I not surprised?
Requiem for a Dream messed me up. The song had to do with a lot of the emotions behind my uneasy feelings.
I don’t like his politics, but he knows movies!
Featured in the movie White Bird In A Blizzard
