who's the poor man?
I was supposed to go to Birriera Bugambilias last night but I beaned myself out over the last couple of days (let me recommend making vegetarian chili with soyrizo, it's quite good) and changed the plans to Nishiki so I can't write a new review. However, Nishiki outdid itself last night, with a great server, above average zig zag roll (which I get every fucking time and the quality really varies but I always hope it will be a good one) and free sake bombs for all. I have tomorrow off, so I may make a visit to La Bonne Soupe Cafe (or however you spell it) tomorrow because people keep recommending it to me.
As I mentioned, I have tomorrow off, so I will shill the Four Eyes/Losin' Streaks show on saturday today. It is at Delta of Venus with their bro band, Boss the Big Biz. BTBB will probably play for four or five hours, and the Losin' Streaks usually play for awhile so I would recommend bringing some crystal meth to stay awake during the show. I know this will sound mean, but I was checking out the website of the Japanese band te who are playing at the Red Square tonight and the song that they have playing on their myspace is such a distillation of the kind of band sound that I hate that it was funny to me.
The Fly is such an awesome movie. It holds up for me every time. Jeff Goldblum is so good in it! And I love the combo of extreme gore and pathos. It brought to mind a question for me that perhaps DB can answer. Is Geena Davis the poor mans Sigourney Weaver or vice versa? And is there a poor mans Goldblum? I would like to nominate the guy that plays Geena's ex (Stathis Borans is the character's silly name) as the poor mans Martin Mull, which is a poor man indeed. Incidentally, this is the only guy to reprise his role in the loathsome Fly II, which has an Imdb review with the heading "not exactly good, but not nearly as bad as it COULD have been.
Here's a creepy German (of course) Cronenberg fansite.
