On Christopher and His Kind

On Christopher and His Kind

From the first time I saw Christopher and His Kind, I loved it. Maybe it was Matt Smith, Lindsay Duncan, or the wonderful hedonism that we all should simply indulge in every once and while. Does it really matter? According to The Telegraph‘s review: I wonder if the club scene regularly documented in ITV2’s reality show … Continue reading

On Clueless

On Clueless

I totally love Clueless from beginning to end. It’s always a great movie rewatch. According to the Los Angeles Times review: To hear almost-16 Cher Horowitz tell it, “I actually have a way normal life.” True, her mom died during “routine liposuction,” but she now lives happily with her fierce litigator father (“He gets paid … Continue reading

On The Devil Wears Prada

It’s hard not to love The Devil Wears Prada. It’s an excellent movie. According to the New York Times review: No man is a hero to his valet. So the saying goes, or used to go, since few men these days actually have valets. But a great many people, men and women alike, heroic at … Continue reading

A Special Look at: Listen

A Special Look at: Listen

I had, on first viewing, originally liked Listen, but have since found it to be really abstract. It centers on the idea that no one is every really alone with something possibly always lurking beside us. It is not about the something that fear, but rather fear itself. According to The A.V. Club review: “Listen” … Continue reading

The Best of Mýa: 1998-2001

I grew up listening to Mya throughout school. “Movin’ On” with Silkk the Shocker was the first song I liked from Mya. I liked “My First Night with You” from Mya. I loved “Take Me There” with Blackstreet, Mase and Blinky Blink from the The Rugrats Movie soundtrack. “Case of the Ex (Whatcha Gonna Do)” … Continue reading

The Best of Björk: 1993-Present

I have been a of hers for some time. “Human Behavior” is good from Debut. I love “Venus as a Boy” from Debut. “Big Time Sensuality” is also good from Debut. “Violently Happy” rocks from Debut. I have always loved “Army of Me” from Post. “It’s Oh So Quiet” just never, ever gets old from Post. … Continue reading
