I used All to All on the sound track of a college assignment and was CENSURED.

BROKEN SOCIAL SCENE - Forgiveness Rock Record

I don't get this group at all, although they're obviously very clever. Is there meant to be a gay sub-text or something? Or is that Canadian? I've listened to them on and off over the years, never quite put off, never quite turned on. This time around I liked Ungrateful Little Father . But it's not ...

Re: Haven't seen any art lately

The Gary Webb show, 'Key Largo' @ The Approach is quite good. Someone ought to review it! :lol: Even if the staff there are too slack to fix the labelling for the three works on their web site - even after email requests! So much for respect for the artist and works... Anyway the main piece, The Dor...

Email notification of replies?

Would it be possible to have one of those little boxes to check, whereby one is notified of further replies to a topic or thread?

Just a thought...

La Fille coupée en deux (2007) directed by CLAUDE CHABROL

Yeah a little Claire Denis goes a long way. Breillat’s stuff is not as pictorially appealing, but maybe more of a thesis or two driving things. Does that appeal to my inner feminist? Are you kidding? My inner fem gets about as far as Pascale Ferran’s version of Lady Chatterley . Now that was hot! Ap...

Re: Cezanne at The Courtauld

Apparently it's Cezanne's 172nd birthday today and Google are marking the occasion with a Cezanne-inspired graphic. :oops: If you missed it, it looked like this . It's a kind of rebus thing with the objects forming the letters of Google, as usual. Sigh. :cry: I should have been able to post an IMG t...

Re: Winter's Bone.

It's a killer film Jim! And the book (by Daniel Woodrell) is even better! I spent most of the Christmas break reading some of his other novels. None as good. Maybe he's just getting better. He's in his 50s I think. He's got two coming out this year. But I did find an interesting blog somewhere about...

Why isn't Michelangelo's David circumcised?

Well apparently he is, I've only just learned today. But circumcision in that Biblical era (David Vs Goliath) was not circumcision as we know it today. In those days a lad just had the top trimmed off his penis. There is a technical Hebrew term for it. Naturally I've forgotten it. Anyway the more ex...

Re: Sofia Coppolas Somewhere

Okay now I’ve seen Somewhere , and it wasn’t really what I was expecting. It’s better! Which is not to say I liked it; just that my objections are different, not quite as harsh. It’s more like Lost in Translation than Virgin Suicides . So no Malick influence (brittle voice overs, dreamy montages of ...

It seems to have filtered out a lot of the silly or anonymous posts, and may have lost some traffic for that (?) that, and the fact that all posts are not visible on the homepage, as they used to be. But there's far greater flexibility for writing, linking, previewing and submitting posts, so on the...

Re: Elvis Lives

Actually I'm more of an E. Costello fan, circa 1978. Saw his first London gig at the Greyhound (?)

Too bad Declan didn't expire of burger excess sometime in the mid 80s. ;)

But hey that song Alison!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - Do you suppose he meant Alison Jacques?

Re: ROBERT MAPPLETHORPE: NIGHT WORK CURATED BY SCISSOR SIST

Isn't the new Alison Jacques space going to open with a Scissor Sisters curation?

Actually in the current economic climate I'm amazed Alsation J can afford to open a second space. But what do I know?

Re: Sofia Coppolas Somewhere

I thought Virgin Suicides was crappy but Lost in Translation pretty good. She tries for that Terence Malick-dreamy-lyricism tip without really having the eye, imagination. She is, however, more of a people person. Putting Bill Murray and Scarlet Johansson together and giving them enough space was a ...

Re: Geoff Dyer versus Jonathan Franzen

I used to like Dyer, but it's been a while since I read any. For some reason I get him confused with Richard Rayner. As a novel, The Corrections felt a bit too scattered and tedious. It's as if Franzen wanted to put all of his ideas into the one killer story, but it only killed the story. I think it...

Cathie Pilkington: Peaceable Kingdom, Marlborough Galleries

Pilkington’s small figurines in striking tableaux belong to a broad trend in sculpture that adopts stock characters drawn from cartoons and fairy tales and applies them to unlikely situations, unusual materials. The trend arises along two paths, firstly, emphatic fabrication or commission on the par...
