It's amazing how hurtin' music can just make you feel so much better - you'd think it would be the opposite, wouldn't you? But it's not. Nothing better than some Patsy Cline when yer blue. Yes, I've been a little blue this week - nothing major of course, just kind of down. Perking up as the weekend approaches, naturally, and it's going to be a good one I think. Mia's birthday Saturday night (yeah, we're going out to a club - wtf do you wear to a club these days?!? *sigh*) & then John's family for dinner on Sunday. Busy, busy - stocking up on wine too... hee...

Unwatchable is right. Bridget Jones the Edge of Reason, we turned it off after about 40 minutes. I honestly don't think I've ever done that before - okay yeah, with Armageddon, we fastforwarded through a LOT, but didn't turn it off. Saw the end, blah blah blah, end of story. I was saddened by Bridget Jones. It was basically the same movie as the original, just this time she's all excited that she's got a boyfriend, and to my mind has set the women's movement back around 800 years by mincing about, agonizing over the relationship with her "does he really want to be with me?" drivel. Ugh. It was embarrassing and unflattering and offensive. And that's all I shall ever say on the subject, because frankly, it's not worth the time and energy.

Wow. Just wow. Listening to the new Garbage CD "Bleed Like Me" today and am loving it. Rolling Stone has an interview, and here is another. Shirley Manson is just amazing, incredible, and why oh why can't I be Shirley Manson?!?

I was having a good day to start with, and this - well this just topped it off! Leonard Cohen for Nobel prize for literature - the mind reels. And, as I look out the windows here at work to the wind and the rain, today is the perfect type of day to celebrate with some music by the man himself. Shame I don't have any with me here at work...

Fitting, I think, that I should start publishing this blog with lines from Tommy. On Monday, one of my fave bloggers, The Lipstick Librarian, made reference to a previous post where she discusses some of her film influences. How tickled was I to read the comment at the very bottom of that post - how I missed these I have no idea! But then, I am a recent arrival to the world of blogging. Until now I have been a casual reader of blogs, but not a blogger of blogs. What has prompted me you ask? Bloglines - they just make it so darned easy to get those feeds! And reading inspiring blogs and news feeds creates inspiration. And, ah, well I've been the "guest blogger" for the BRAIN_blog since the beginning of April and I am loving it. An audience? For the things that I find interesting? Oh yeah....I'm so in!
