All in the (Perkins) Family

I've blogged about Elvis Perkins in Dearland before. I've been listening to him a lot more lately; his music suits fall weather quite well.

While reading up on him a bit, I discovered that he is the son of Anthony Perkins. (Film History 101: Anthony Perkins played the famous psychopath Norman Bates in Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho)
I've spent a lot of time watching, rewatching, analyzing and talking about Perkins' outstanding performance as part of a high school film studies course I taught, and developed a little retro-Celebrity Crush on him. I realize that's a little creepy on my part, but come on, Norman Bates is a total charmer!

In any event, I was delighted to discover this dynamic father/son duo. They are both so good at what they do.
