i haven't blogged this much in months. i was reading stuff from last year and apparently i did lots of teaching reflections and list-making. in the spirit of the latter, these are the albums that have been rocking my world lately:
  • Stars, Set Yourself on Fire

  • Gotan Project, Lunatico

  • The New Pornographers, Twin Cinema

  • Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah

  • Julieta Venegas, Limon y sal

  • The last non-local live shows I saw were The Essex Green, The Roots, and The Twilight Singers (featuring Greg Dulli of the Afghan Whigs). I've got tickets for Bloc Party in August and I can't wait... I'm flying my 15 yr old cousin down from Philly so he can see them, it'll be his first concert!

    Books I've read recently:
  • Augusten Burroughs, Running With Scissors

  • Douglas Coupland, Eleanor Rigby

  • David Sedaris, Me Talk Pretty One Day

  • I'm in the middle of Asne Seierstad's amazing The Bookseller of Kabul and I've been reading Salman Rushdie's Shalimar the Clown on and off for the last two months. Last month's National Geographic had a wonderful feature on soccer, with stories much like this one.

    The best new movie I've seen in awhile is The Proposition, written by Nick Cave. I saw Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and The 40 Year Old Virgin last week and loved them both. Nacho Libre was a guilty pleasure, The Omen was stupid, X-Men 3 made me cry, and The Da Vinci Code was disappointing.

    ...and i'm out!
