Random Ramblings

Dig me: I got a damn cell-phone. Or, as Elli calls it, a Daddy Phone - cause, with the baby coming and all...It even does pictures. Watch out! Now, if I can only figure out how to upload the pictures somewhere...

Recent listenings:
After seeing DIG!, I dug out all my Brian Jonestown Massacre discs - and downloaded the ones I didn't have (and assorted demos and live stuff) from the bands website. That's pretty much all I've been listening to. Plus the occasional Stones album. Today's was Out Of Our Heads. Oh, and Chrome - Half Machine Lip Moves, No Humans Allowed/Read Only Memory and ... what's the one with New Age on it? Is that Blood On The Moon?
And Elli's been listening to Tits On The Radio by Scissor Sisters pretty much non-stop.

Recent watchings:
In the theater we saw:
The Grudge (enjoyed it, but it was disappointingly watered down)
Saw (enjoyed it quite a bit)
Ray (gotta see at least one of the Oscar contenders, I reckon - and how can you not like Ray Charles?)
The Invincibles (I do love me some Pixar)

From the video shelf:
Season 5 of Sanford And Son
Bridget Jones's Diary
The Clearing
Zatoichi/Sonatine double feature (What?!? Miramax allowed some of their Asian Acquisitions to be released unaltered?? - at least, I think these are uncut...)
The Watcher In The Woods
The Passion Of The Christ - or, as the kids on Fark call it, The Jesus Chain Saw Massacre

Currently reading:
1984 - George Orwell
Well, I think it's fitting...

Oh, hey...sorry..I'm back -these damn blogs let me get all up on your lawn, but I just had to comment on Chrome. Chrome is rad. Helios used to come by my Haight flat to get busy with a housemate in the late 80's. That's right, I;m cool. He is of the googly-eye and a really nice guy. Somewhere I have a very rare Chrome record and last saw him play guitar in a version of Hawkwind in the early/mid 90's. There were 2 competing versions of Hawkwind touring simultaneously that year. My friend who was a dedicated space-rocker saw both. The Helios version broke the surly bounds. Sleep opened playing through Orange amps! OK, bye. happy thanksgiving. werd. -sorry.
