I would be alone if not for you
Still the Same - Bob Seger (live)
This song is clearly amazing but this live performance is great - Bob smiles a lot and I *think* he’s wearing slippers.
Inside Llewyn Davis (2013) dir. Cohen Brothers
This film is a bit of a grower. I saw it a few weeks ago & it still finds a corner of my brain to crawl into and twitch. Thoughts of art and music and integrity and not finding success. It’s a pretty plotless, wandering melancholy film with a pretty amazing cat and incredible cinematography that feels warm and scratchy like a wool blanket.
Nebraska (2013) dir. Alexander Payne
There’s something here that lives and breathes despite the cold bleak black and whiteness of a Nebraska winter. A road movie that isn’t nostalgic or gives the warm fuzzies but does have heart and soul. Another cheer for Alexander Payne!
Cutie and the Boxer (2013)
I love documentaries about art. They always show a steadfastness and a single-minded devotion to craft that is as inspiring as it is scary. This film is about art and the struggle of being 2 artists (3 if you count their fucked up son) in a relationship. It’s a hard marriage fraught with tension but there’s also tenderness and loyalty. Engrossing.
I’m dj-ing tonight’s No Lights No Lycra (aka New Moves) at the Russian Hall basement tonight. One full rad hour of dancing in the pitch darkness to my mix. It starts in one hour. 7:30 - 8:30pm. I guess I’m pretty bad about giving notice.
Watch Le1f perform live on Letterman with a live band lead by me. Enjoy!
Queer Hip Hop on Letterman!
Broad City is my new favourite tv show.
Veronica Mars (2014)
I loved Veronica Mars when it was a tv series and rewatched last spring just to bring back those good ol’ feelings again. The movie version is fine, very surface, wrapping up a few loose ends. But all the stuff that made the tv show great–that it dealt with class and feminism were missing from the movie. What teen tv show deals with class issues nowadays….certainly not Pretty Little Liars (which, btw, I also really like). Also, the Old Logan disappeared and was replaced with a weird skinny-necked New Logan and it was really, really creepy.
HAPPY NEW YEAR LOSERS

I’ve reblogged this before and I’ll reblog it again.
