Dead Flowers

Well when you're sittin back, in your rose pink Cadillac Making bets on Kentucky Derby Day, I'll be in my basement room, with a needle and a spoon. And another girl to take my pain away -Jagger/Richards

Now Pitchfork talks about The Wire; through a record review.

In the past few months, it's been virtually impossible to open any mass-market magazine without seeing some scribe's rapturous doodles about "The Wire", HBO's Baltimore street opera, now revving up its fifth and final season. So allow Pitchfork to join the deafening hype-tsunami: "The Wire" is the best thing to happen to television since the remote control; it weaves a dizzying multiplicity of storylines together, never letting its edge-of-seat suspensefulness eclipse its all-consuming empathy, hardly ever presenting an altogether unsympathetic character on either side of the drug war or within the machinery of politics or education. It's a great show, and its greatness rarely, if ever, has anything to do with music. [Warning: Sone DVD viewers may find slight plot spoilers below.].........[ ]

Year-end lists do not mean anything. However, there is one up side: you find a few gems you’ve missed. For me Menomena’s Friend & Foe is that album.

Fabulous music.

Superbad got some amazing press; made it to Stylus Magazine’s top 10 films of the year list. The fact is: Superbad is worth the hype and more. An example of fresh and creative cinema. I’ve seen many high school teen sex comedies (who does not), but this one raises the bar altogether. Brilliant stuff.
