Hotel Chevalier

‘Wanna See My View Of Paris?’…so ends Wes Anderson’s prologue to The Darjeeling Limited, a 13-minute short set in Paris’ (fictional?) Hotel Chevalier. Simple, sweet and poignant…the final shot lingers over the heartbreaking final moments of a relationship; a coda that’s as cold as it is intimate. Nicely crafted Wes ๐Ÿ™‚ — { US viewers […]

Sigur Rรณs: Heima

‘I sometimes get this strange and sort of uncontrollable urge to want to go home…’ Sigur Rรณs’ forthcoming album Hvarf-Heim is gonna be accompanied by what appears to be a magical DVD movie entitled Heima…Icelandic for ‘at home’.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars | Tales Of The New Republic

I should like it, but I don’t want to ๐Ÿ™ Lucasfilm previewed the new Clone Wars TV series at this weekend’s 30th anniversary of Star Wars.

But, I’m kinda disappointed that the victims are expendable teens and not my home country’s crazy imams, power-hungry generals, CIA agents and the corrupted gentry…now wouldn’t that be subversive…allies in a War On Horror! Anyways, here’re […]
