Chicks in a Cave - Horror Movie, I Love You

I saw The Descent last night. I had gone to the good ol' Montreal F0rum for some comfy-seat, air-conditioned movie time, having not been to the movies in several weeks and feeling sad about that. So I went with a friend to see A Scanner Darkly, which I was prepared for, being kind of a fan of Waking Life and having heard from friends that this was pretty good - not action-packed, but interesting and neat to look at. And that was true. I left the theatre thinking about it, about why the animation (it makes sense though), and about how Keanu has gotten really good at picking the right roles. I did leave the movie feeling kind of stoned though, because the world is not in fact rotoscope animated. It looked weird.

I also left feeling I could watch another movie. This is what happens at multiplexes. I'm sorry, but it's just too easy. So we saw The Descent. And it rocked. So. Awesome. I wrote about it where else but on Midnight Poutine.

Oneness means identifying the source of your vitriol

Saturday morning rant.

aka what happens when i'm woken up at 6:41 a.m. on the weekend and it's not my fault at all except maybe that i chose to live on a main street in a big city but STILL.

aka who's to blaaaame???

at least the street is really really quiet right now. so much so that i can hear the dork owners/managers of the crappy cafe across the street telling someone off. fun!

dear everyone this morning: what the hell is UP with you??

Watch the video

I really like this band. Sweet sweet summertime hippie country that doesn't annoy me but makes me want to hang out and contemplate happiness. I am going to remember that in winter. More about this show on
