movies, movies, music, movies, music, movies and aimee mann

thanks to Netflix, the Museum of Modern Art, the New York Public Library and HBO On Demand, over an extended weekend (which is no comment at all on relative workload) we watched Enchanted (cute, and I love New York settings, but the stress points really showed in the ending), Fantasia (I really thought I had seen it before, but now I know that I've seen at least 95% of it (that sucker's l-o-o-o-ng)), 27 Dresses (what with Hairspray and Enchanted earlier we could've been sponsoring a James Marsden Film Festival) and American Psycho (now I've read the book and seen the movie (at least it's on massive sale here) and don't have to do either again).

we also false-started on I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry (even if the last hour was twice as good as the first half-hour it wouldn't have been worth finishing) and of course The Simpsons Movie, in Spanish, is on again.

new (at least to me) music to listen to: Al Green's Everything's OK, Grinderman, Cat Stevens' Mona Bone Jakon, Willie and Wynton's Two Men with the Blues (I wonder how good this could've been in the studio with some more adventurous material), Paul Weller's 22 Dreams, Rodney Crowell's upcoming Sex & Gasoline, Liam Finn's I'll Be Lightning and Damien Jurado's upcoming Caught In The Trees.

and my conversation with Aimee Mann (one I enjoyed) is now up at
