I'll tell you how much I don't care...... But seriously, or maybe not, I'm going to recommend some things, and you will take my advice. Others can follow as they like, but no beer. And let's stick to recent things. Film- Frida I was surprised that I actually like this, but Salma Hayek gave an honest performance and the acting in general was top-notch, aside from the miscast role of Ashley Judd as Tina Modotti. Of course certain times in Frida Kahlos life could have been elaborted on more, being a film it had to make some sacrafices. Definitely worth seeing. Book-Super Flat Times by Matthew Derby. The most original collection of science fiction based short stories I've read since Italo Calvino's Cosmicomics, seriously, and I say "based" on because neither book is typical sci-fi, maybe future realism would be a better term. Music- Ms. John Soda: No P. or D. From the same camp as The Notwist and Lali Puna, this is Stefanie Bohm (couch) and Micha Acher (the notwist) and although the album is very similar to The Notwists Neon Golden this album is much more feminine and maybe a little warmer in general. The result is pure pop bliss, accessible but still brillant. Web- If you havn't checked Matthew Ritchie's site do so, it's insane. http://adaweb.walkerart.org/influx/hardway/home/home.html that's all for now, go back to your normal activities.
