I'm about to go out on a limb with this statement, guys, but the Rolling Stones are really good. They were talking about this song on NPR today. How hot is Mick?
I had to go to Starbucks to get a gift card for my Aunt today and the huge line was disheartening. What the fuck is wrong with those people? Why do they like burnt coffee? I don't think everyone needs to get into super light roasts, which can be too acidic and which I really can't get into, but that coffee is straight charred. My aunt certainly gets a pass because she is old. Is this going to piss someone off? My advice: go to Temple or Broadacre (even though I think those guys kinda suck) and look for a coffee with the description chocolately or rich or something. You just might like it. It's worth at least trying a little bit just not to support a huge crappy corporation that is overwhelming local businesses and blah blah blah preaching to the choir.
Four Eyes Show! Four Eyes Show! Don't miss the first song. Remember how it was truckin' last year?
Two recommendations:Gerhard Richter documentary that shows how he makes his abstract paintings. Yes, I fell asleep at the end to the sounds of German, but by that time you had seen a lot of his technique. It's really unique and cool and I'm pretty sure he developed it and got all these custom squeegees made.
Not To Disturb by Muriel Spark. What a fucking bizarre book by the woman who wrote The Prime Of Miss Jean Brodie (which is pretty cute). This book is the length of a novella so it's a quick read
And in really high brow art I plan to watch both Die Hard and Lethal Weapon on Christmas Eve. I can't wait to see Mel Gibson's butt again and pretend he is not the worst dude on the planet.
