low fidelity

Yo. I am procrastinating with packing by pirating internet (aarrrr), and offer you my media consumption as of late. Kind of like those profiles in magazines, only I don’t have an Ipod list, because I don’t have an Ipod.

Most recently viewed movies:

Happy Endings—oh Maggie. Her character’s name is Jude, she has kick ass earrings, and she sings! Seriously, good film.

The Agronomist—about Jean Dominic, a free radio journalist in Haiti who was assassinated (apologies for passive voice but subject is unknown…who killed Jean?) Good story but poor editing on the documentary.

Two Weeks Notice—recently my mom visited, and sifting through my movie collection, she noticed that I own no comedies (with the exception of I.Q.) So, I am working on the light and fluffy.

Daily Show Indecision 2004—rent it!!! The Republican Nat’l Convention coverage is the best.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory—oh Johnny. Flaming puppets, what more can I say.

Last five albums listened to:

Atmosphere, Seven’s Travels

Rufus Wainwright, Want One

Dr. Octagon, who I must admit I like a lot, but I don’t know the title

Belle and Sebastian, Dear Catastrophe Waitress, specifically “Stay Loose”

Radiohead, Ok Computer

Last five books/magazines read:

The House of the Spirits, Isabel Allende

Breathe, with Julie Delpy on cover

A zine about Paul’s trip to Mexico City, the title had something about a monkey

Communities of Dissent, Stephen J. Stein

Traveling Mercies, Anne Lamott

A word on the last, Anne Lamott is the one who believes smoothies with bananas are the only cure for existential dread. Which you will read about soon in red milk, currently on its way to a mailbox near you. Peace out!
