  1. I thought that response was rather poor. I didn't think the Weingarten article evinced a "kind of elitist snobbery." In fact, he went out of his way to say that our modern style of life (always in a hurry, worried about wealth, etc.) seems to make it difficult for us to appreciate beauty. I read the piece as him arguing against the "unsophisticated boob" thesis (or at least that the situation was way more complex than that).
  2. So two weeks ago they bury two people alive and then this week they say nothing about it?
  3. According to this (warning: major spoilers in the link), there is a straight to DVD movie in the works, so hopefully that will help some of us when we start going into withdrawal in the fall.
  4. An interesting connection to the Bible in the latest episode.
  5. I'm pretty sure http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k0FMZiEmM14.

    After hearing the entire song - rather than just the first 15 seconds - I think it sounds nothing like Hemispheres and exactly like they picked up where they left off with Vapor Trails.
  7. did anyone else catch this? It's the first time I'd listened to anything off of the new album. And I was very impressed. Here is one of the songs they played.
  8. Did anybody notice who played the bus driver?

    Actually, my first thought when I heard it was that it sounded like a cross between Vapor Trails and Hemispheres. That last chord, I think, is what gives it that late 70's feel.
  10. I also think it's interesting how "young Ted" is always looking toward the future and "old Ted" is always looking towards the past.
  11. have any relationship with "A Wrinkle in Time"? If I remember correctly, one of the books that Sawyer was reading during the first or second season was "A Wrinkle in Time." I also thought that the red shoes reminded me an awful lot of "The Wizard of Oz."

    You can listen to about 10 seconds of the first single at the Rush website. The album is out May 1.
  13. Calvin Seerveld's How to Read the Bible to Hear God Speak
  14. David Bowie's song on Extras had me rolling on the floor.
  15. Stereogum has a link to a song off of AF's forthcoming album, Neon Bible. The song is called "Intervention."
  16. This is what I thought, too. The Haitian was around the corner when the FBI were talking Claire and her dad. And the Haitian was with her dad when the FBI were in the car and Zoltan got the bloody noise.
  17. I prefer the rap interlude from another early 90s Canadian song.
  18. Stereogum has a clip from tonight's episode.
  19. I don't know. The show is so complicated and hard to follow, I always feel so lost.
  20. Gnarls Barkley is going to be on Conan O'Brien in about 2 minutes.
  21. Yes, it is Nancy Walls. She used to be on the Daily Show, too.
  22. I just ran across this casting call for one of the episodes of the next season of 30 Days. Apparently they are filming this episode right now.
