Things I Like Vol. 24

Ten People/Places/Things That Rock My World:

1) Drew Barrymore
2) The Right Stuff - film dir. by Philip Kaufman - ladies and gentlemen, America's Mercury Astronauts!
3) Georgia Hard - Robbie Fulks
4) Three of Cups restaurant, New York NY
5) Bill Maher Live in DC, 6/8/05 - disorder in the house
6) Shattered Glass - film dir. by Billy Ray
7) The Starland Ballroom, Sayreville NJ
8) "Brooklyn" - Ryan Adams (live cover version)
9) "It Makes No Difference" - the Band
10) Seville Diner, East Brunswick NJ

Hero of the Week: (tie) Howard Dean, for speaking the truth about the Republican Party and its true agenda and refusing to back down and Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), for keeping the Downing Street Memo on the front burner

Villains of the Week: The members of the House Ethics Committee, for once again failing to deal with the festering issues surrounding Tom DeLay's numerous ethics violations, as well as those of several other key members

  1. THE RIGHT STUFF is an excellent film. One of those few films I can sit and watch the rest of no matter how far into it it is, no matter what channel it's on. Am pissed that Bill Conti's marvelous & inspiring score is only partially available on CD. Which reminds me, I need to sit down and watch the kick-ass new DVD that came out and has been sitting on the shelf.

    Shattered Glass, we just watched that recently. It was good, since Haydern wasn't as petulant as he is as Anakin.

    And It Makes No Difference by The Band is just heartbreaking. Wonderful song.
