and a sweet sound it made
Just one track for today, partly because my .mac account is a little full & partly because I couldn't decide on a second song to post. However, this Decemberists track, off of 2002's Castaways & Cutouts, has been stuck in my head the last couple of days & I had to do something about it. "Odalisque" has all of the fanciful lyrical turns you come to expect from Colin Meloy, but it also seems to go all over the place - it feels epic. My lousy prose really doesn't do the song justice, so listen & make your own assessments. Leave a comment if you like - they are always appreciated.
mark your calendarsSome selected upcoming dvd releases:
8/24 The Girl Next Door (unrated)
8/31 Slacker - Criterion Collection
9/07 Law & Order: Criminal Intent - Season 3
9/14 The Ladykillers
9/21 The Wire - Season 1
9/21 Mr. Show - Season 4
9/28 Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
This is a brief list of discs coming out that will most likely work their way into my vast dvd library. Okay, maybe not The Girl Next Door, which I never got around to seeing, but I can't help my crush on Elisha Cuthbert. BTW: I disagree with those calling for 24 producers to kill her off the show. I heart Kim Bauer, even when she's being chased by cougars (that's funny sh**). Slacker is an early indie flick by Richard Linklater, being done up Criterion style - always a good thing. Also on my checklist is the Coen Bros' latest w/some guy named Tom Hanks, as well as several quality tv shows, including the most recent season of the D'Onofrio L&O franchise (my fav), Bob & David's final season, and the amazing first season of what I consider to be the best show on tv, HBO's The Wire. However, I am most looking forward to ESOTSM, IMO the year's best film to date. Hopefully the home video department over @ Focus Features will put together some good extras (nothing much announced thus far). The above links direct you to my online store of choice DVD Planet, who offer 35% off of Criterions - always.
