    It's on right now.  Such a great movie and great soundtrack.  Did you know it is loosely referencing to the Odyssey?

      Great movie.  I went to high school with Tim Blake Nelson...  He was a hoot even back then, president of our school senior year.  Always did these hilarious morning skits he wrote.  Great guy.

      I knew it was a reference to the Odyssey.  Didn't your see the sirens? Its a hero's journey. I like the sound track. "I am A Man of Constant Sorrow" is a traditional American folk song. In the movie it is sung by The Soggy bottom Boys

      They're singing "constant sorrow" right now.  My favorite song.

        I think that's the name of the song.  They just passed the cross roads.
