Thursday Thunderr


Okay uhh I'm gonna start a new thing on Thursdays where I just talk about a bunch of stuff I've been enjoying. Mostly music but a little TV maybe movies. I don't know. And guess what it's called Thursday Thunderr because I have lightning bolts and the site and when I was little I always got lightning and thunder mixed up. Okay that's not the real reason I just came up with it on the spot.

Strangers With Candy-I just bought season 1 and 2 on DVD and I can't say it wasn't worth it. Because they're awesome. Everyone that's watched it with me thinks it's retarded but I love Amy Sedaris. I saw her on David Letterman last Friday and it was awesome.

Indie Bear- Okay so this is Garrison from Indie Interviews and Chris from Gorilla vs. Bear doing a podcast for Texas Gigs. I don't usually like podcasts because I don't know. I don't understand the subscribing stuff blah blah blah check it out it's a lot of great music, duh.

Arcade Fire Rarities- The Torture Garden posted a crapload of Arcade Fire sort've rare mp3s. When I say that I mean like, new live songs or covers. They're all pretty awesome.

Babette's Feast- We watched this movie in my French and Italian Cinema class the other day. It sort've starts off slow but it's sort've in Swedish but yeah. I guess it won an Acadmy Award for Best Foreign Film in the late '90s. It's really good and funny and French. You know you love it. I wonder why we don't get many French indie bands? That's kinda weird. Swedn has a ton but there don't seem to be many French ones. Okay that was a tangent.

Spiritualized "Any Way That You Want Me" I heard this track at the end of Me and You and Everyone We Know (which is a really really really great movie if you haven't seen it either) but anyway it's a really great chill-out track.

SXSW- I gotta get to this. Torr pointed out that the entire line-up has been announced! So much goodness. Sadly though, Belle and Sebastian and Cat Power are both missing from the list...

Are you posting drunk? Not that there's anything wrong with that.

crazy as it seems, this is still not the complete list. I know a number of bands that have been formally accepted by the festival and informed but aren't on the list. Not sure why but it's always like this. They do it in waves, kinda sloppy.

Glad to hear you're enjoying Strangers With Candy. Amy Sedaris is brilliant, ain't she? I stop by the restaurant where she works every now and then to chat with her -- people are still in awe that she still waitresses infrequently.

And SXSW list in incomplete. More bands to come...

Jeez, Spiritualized? I have to stop posting on your blog, but you've got awesome taste. I'm going to add you to my blog links...
