On my stereo lately:
Putting iTunes on Shuffle/Random.
Les Nubians, "Son Reggae" and "La Guerre" (from One Step Forward)
Sweet Honey in the Rock, "Breaths," "Ella's Song"
Alexi Murdoch, "Orange Sky"
Rachel Bagby, Full
Leon Goldensohn, The Nuremberg Interviews.
Movies/plays watched: Trans-Siberian - Interesting characters and moral ambiguity/
complexity, which I appreciated. Good suspense and cinematography. But
hella creepy, and the torture scene was just gratuitous. Moral of the
movie: Don't go to Russia. Ever. Burn After Reading - Very funny but kind of awful in a Coen
brothers kind of way. I must borrow from the NY Times review: "...it's a
wonder [the Coen brothers] keep making films about a subject for which
they often evince so little regard, namely other people." Yeah.
