#1 Death Song

I'm fairly certain a secret meeting of television executives was held in which they debated the go-to song to be played anytime anyone dies on a tv show and they all voted for Jeff Buckley's cover of Hallelujah.

When I Die I Hope I Remember to Say, "Julian, Take Off the Red Shoes"

After a week and a half of starring at the Orange Library's Criterion copy of The Red Shoes lying inert beside my TV, I finally watched the film. I now understand Martin Scorsese's fervor for Powell and Pressburger's creation and I can also appreciate what it means to be truly fascinated and bored by something simultaneously (see: ballet).

And also, is it just me or would The Red Shoes viewed without sound resemble a horror film?

The New Face of Blue-Eyed Soul

I'm into it. Too bad the phrase jew-eyed soul sounds kind of racist and is therefore unusable.

I Might Someday Decide to Read This

My love runs deep for David Cross, but lately he's been breaking my heart.
