|Love Lucinda Williams. Hope you are well.|

|Are those iMixes you had a while back still online?|
|From Anon |
|I think there is, a movie that is - you just don't know because you don't watch movies. Damn shame. T & T could have $401M + $8. |
Anyone who does watch movies seen Clerks 2? The LOTR and Star Wars bits are funny as hell, especially LOTR.

|Q: Yep. Here’s the link.|
And I believe, Anon Eddie, I said, "befitting."
Anyway, I saw Clerks II a while ago. I also screened Little Miss Sunshine and The Illusionist.
The only time I write about film here anymore is when I really like a film and find it to be well-made (and thus recommend). Or, sometimes, if a movie really pisses me off I might dissect the work. In accordance, I don’t recommend any of the above. But Clerks II I’d say rent if you like Kevin Smith films. I had a fun time watching that flick. And maybe LMS wouldn’t be a bad rent. The acting is good but the script needed revisions.

|I thought you were taking a random jab at DMC. LMS is definitely on the edge of something special, and I liked it, though it did feel a bit incomplete. But maybe that's what they were going for. |
You watch movies. Ha! Next you'll be watching TV again.

|"I thought you were taking a random jab at DMC."|
I was taking a jab (making a point). It wasn't "random," however.
And I don't think too-easy, false-feeling character realizations that arrive out of thin air are the goal of any production. That was LMS's problem. Well, one of them. Which is why it only needed some revisions: It's not that hard to fix. Alas.
I never stopped watching movies. I stopped going to the shitty ones, for the most part.

|I've never heard "Bonnie Portmore" by Lucinda Williams, but it raises the question of whether you have ever listened to Loreena McKennitt? She does BP, as well as a great version of "The Highwayman".|
|From Robert |
|This CD is incomplete because it is missing "The Mariner's Revenge Song" by the Decemberists. Get it now. All 8:44 of it.|
|From Stef |
|Jess, you should see Snakes on a Plane. It's far from being a good movie, but yet it's one of those movies that are so unbelievably great because they're unbelievably bad and cheesy, like Zoolander.|
I'm glad you wrote a little note about LMS. I wanted to see it, but now I think I'll wait to rent it.
