Dudes, I'm serious about this Finches CD. I'll stop harping on this but I must say again that you have to get it.
OK, big news of the day-the Halloween show is officially postponed. No one (besides Oasis) has gotten their shit together. This always happens with the Halloween show. It's now on saturday, November 19th, right? Which means I will probably be on the east coast. Last night under the influence of many glasses of wine some people had convinced me to forgo extending my east coast trip just so I could go to the show, but this morning, clear-eyed and (semi)sober I'm all like "Nuh-uh". So you'll have to bravely proceed without me.
Saw "Saraband" and I'll pronounce it for hardcore Bergman fans only. I'm hella hardcore so I loved it, despite the squirm-inducing and labored scenes with loathsome Henrik and his annoying daughter. It was all worth it to see Liv Ullmann and Erland Josephson reunited. Liv Ullmann looks so beautiful! And I won't give away the end except to say that there is some hott octegenarian nudity. It has the usual Bergman theme of the suffocating closeness and hatred that hold some families together. It ain't the Family Circus, kids (or is it?).
