Ah, School of Rock. It sits on my DVD shelf, right next to Hellboy, Ronin, and Goodfellas. :)

I haven't seen Linklater's Before Sunset, and I like most of his work, but I couldn't stand Slacker. Did you guys dig this flick?

Is it just me, or do Amidala, Anakin, and Obi Wan look confused and slightly constipated?

Joey, thanks so much for your recommendations. I appreciate finding well thought and passionate responses to such a question. I, too, am hoping Waits tours soon. I read in a MOJO magazine review of his most recent show in England that Thom Yorke and Johnny Depp were in the audience. Amazing. The pic...

Tom Waits changes your life

I just discovered Tom Waits through a friend. I'm sure there's another Tom Waits thread around here, but that's a lot of pages to dig through. My friend turned me on to the albums Blood Money and Alice, then I purchased Mule Variations through iTunes. I'm astounded. It's so cool to find someone stil...

Had the opportunity to hit an international film festival this weekend. Thanks to those who made it possible. My buddies and I had a great time and saw some great films. I'd recommend the following: Kontroll: a film about Hungarian subway ticket-takers. Reminiscent of Trainspotting in a good way. Lo...

This makes two movies I'm stoked to see this year, the other being Sin City (though I'm skeptical, I'm still a fan). I'm guessing a number of you have seen Linklater's Waking Life, which is pretty much a philosophical update of his first film Slacker (and much more interesting). The Waking Life DVD ...

Bringing back this heap of a Simpsons rip-off is a mistake. McFarlane should've let a sleeping dog lie and keep the good name of his previous product. McFarlane's wallet will be lined, however.

More David Lynch

I'm sure there have been previous Lynch threads, but I've watched Blue Velvet a couple times in the past month. I've seen, from his body of work: -Eraserhead -Blue Velvet -The Straight Story -Mulholland Drive -Twin Peaks: Firewalk With Me -The Elephant Man -Pretty as a Picture: The Art of David Lync...

Thank you! someday, maybe I'll be as hip as you are. If you're at the San Diego Con this summer, perhaps we can compare notes. :D

And of course there's a nice cover of "Against All Odds" by The Postal Service that the kids on the P2Ps are eating up... This is also on iTunes and is worth all of your .99. I don't really feel guilty, but I often feel awkward singing along to Jay-Z. I mean, I'm a middle-class white kid in college...

Kean's Blog List

Kean, could you compile a list of the blogs you visit, or at least a few of the major ones? I'm never sure where to start.
Thanks.

Thanks for the link!

Next album, they'll probably have a song called "The Man with No Name" or "The Outlaw Josey Wales."

A terrific film, one of the few from this year that really deserved all the priase it's garnered. I didn't have any trouble gathering what it was about, though the film does a tremendous job of layering the story elements: the relationships, the struggle, the needs for redemption in its characters. ...
