Movies and Music

What an outstanding weekend of movies and music. And I still have tomorrow to fill it out.

24 HOUR PARTY PEOPLE: One of the best rock n' roll films I've ever seen. I know little to nothing about the Manchester scene and the bands it spawned (Joy Division, Happy Mondays, New Order), but this movie was incredibly inspiring. I will own JD releases by noon tomorrow.

RATCATCHER: Beautiful movie. I didn't find out until after that it was directed by the same woman who directed "Morvern Callar", another excellent flick.

GRAM PARSONS-GP: The best country record ever? It just might be.

Oh, I don't know, about 25 other records.

Good weekend....
