Some tunes

I accidentally stumbled upon this band, The Avalanches. They're a more upbeat and lighthearted version of The Books, another group I would high-five for being awesome.

"Since I Left You" from album of same name.

I'm also digging around to see if I'll like this "riot grrl" music. I should, I'm a card-carrying feminist and frequently angry at the patriarchy, and so far The Slits seem like my kinda gals, so we'll see how this goes.

"I Heard It Through the Grapevine" from the album Cut.

  1. For more on The Slits (and on the paradigm-subverting power of loud music), go to the library and get yerself a copy of Greil Marcus's LIPSTICK TRACES.

    My contribution to the "most romantic movie" meme: Wong Kar-Wai's CHUNGKING EXPRESS (1993), which, in addition to its postmodern visual and narrative aesthetics, never fails to make me feel all spongy inside.
