A bunch of links I've been saving for the past few months. Maybe I should do this monthly, they do pile up.

  • They used "The Killing Moon" by Echo and the Bunnymen in Donnie Darkos theatrical cut, but "Never Tear Us Apart" by INXS in the directors one. They are both georgous songs, but I think "TKM" works better. Also, I probably wouldn't have heard any Echo songs for years if it hadn't been for that movie. Whereas, my mom and sister are big INXS fans, so I would have heard "NTUA" at some point.

  • An Antiques Roadshow appraisal of Ray Bradbury books.

  • Another one for Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? I didn't like that book too much, but this was sweet.

Re-Read: Catcher in the Rye (1951) by JD Salinger

  • First read it in grade 11. I liked it then

  • didn't think I would like it as much now

  • I think I like it better

  • I really hope they don't make a movie of it

  • we don't need another movie about an alienated white boy

  • just watch Taxi Driver, Inside Llewyn Davis, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Harvey (Holden is always asking people to have a drink with him, it reminded me of Elwood), Six Degrees of Separation...

  • I had other suggestions, but forgot

Re-Read: Music of The Dolphins (1996) by Karen Hesse

  • Still love it after about 13 years

  • Don't love the whitewashed cover design though
