  1. Not a fan of Bono's new 'do but I'm very much looking forward to the June 24-25 shows which Thomas and I will be attending. Will any other Image board folk be there?
  2. Saw it last night and really enjoyed it. Loved Brian Blade's drumming on the score. Kinda iffy on the ending myself but not sure what a proper ending would/should be.
  3. The 2014 Publishers' Weekly list plus a spreadsheet of other lists.
  4. The Storied Life of AJ Fikry is a fun read about book nerds but I wouldn't put it in any top 10 overall list for the year.
  5. Poking my head back in here to put this link to recent acoustic performances of "Miracle of Joey Ramone" and "Every Breaking Wave" on Italian TV.

    Mud (2012)

    Saw it this afternoon and loved it. Am so thrilled it's playing wide, even in Rockford!

    Stream of Ebert memorial service http://www.rogerebert.com/balder-and-dash/live-stream-roger-ebert-memorial-tribute Starting out with a gospel choir rendition of Stevie Wonder's "Always" followed by a gospel song I'm not familiar with. Interesting.
  8. Those of us who were fortunate enough to be at the Glen West open mike this past August had the pleasure of hearing one of the songs on the soundtrack, Elayna Boynton's "Freedom." No kidding.
  9. If you purchase your Criterion goodies (or anything else at bn.com) anytime from the 10th-15th AND mention MPOW Bookfair number #10866218 the library gets a small cut of your purchases. Shop early and often! And thanks!
  10. As I said on Facebook, I'm breaking up with Denzel until he picks a good script again. I quit if this gets a Best Picture nod.
  11. Craig confirmed for two more Bond films
  12. Dead at 54 two months after suffering heart attack
  13. I'm also in favor of an every five year Top 100 list. Maybe I'll have time to finish watching the films with that much time.
  14. Kickstarter campaign to save the Catlow Will The Catlow Go Digital Or Go Dark? Hello! My name is Tim O'Connor. Along with my co-partner and fiancé, Roberta Rapata, we run the Catlow Theater in Barrington, Illinois. The Hollywood movie studios are committed to reducing their movie production and distribution costs by eliminating the use of film. Very soon, every movie theater in the country will either have converted their film projection systems to the new digital format or they will be out of business with no movies to show. The message from the movie companies to small theaters like ours is clear: "Go digital or go dark." Hollywood’s edict means the 85-year old Catlow Theater must upgrade its audio and visual equipment at a cost of at least $100,000. The multiplexes and large chains are getting substantial discounts for their digital conversions. We are not! We intend to stay in business, but we’ll need a lot of support from those who love movies and who appreciate historic movie houses like The Catlow.
