I managed to get the stress level down this afternoon and have since accomplished quite a bit which leaves me feeling even less freaked out. Yay me.


We watched Lost in Translation the other night. I've really got to make an effort not to let hype shape an opinion of a film in my mind before I see it myself. The movie landed like a thud because I was expecting some great emotional response. But of course it's a subtle movie and not much happens so I was left thinking "Wha...?" I've come around to it since then because ultimately I enjoy subtle movies in which not much happens.

The best thing that came out of the film for me was the reminder that "My Bloody Valentine" is good headphone music and perfect for travel (especially couch on wheels cab rides through alienating city scapes). I was very excited by today's cab ride across town because this particular route goes past some particularly miserable winter scenes -- A-1 visual accompaniment to the music. I listed to the song "Sometimes" 4 times. On the way back I listened to it on repeat another 3 times while trudging for several blocks through the ice and snow with sunshine on my face. Then I got on the subway and switched to a mixed "Soundtrack for travelling on public transportation and walking through miserable cold" that I made for myself last weekend.
Today's highlight: Sock It To 'Em Soul Brother" Bill Moss (.ram file found on this page While you're there be sure to go to this page and check out some other faves Donny Hathaway's "The Ghetto" and Freda Payne "Band of Gold")
