Be kind rewind

Tuesday, August 21st, 2007

Michel Gondry’s next movie: Be kind rewind. The trailer looks really promising. I was re-watching The Science of Sleep last night, such a sweet movie, even with its flaws it’s so enjoyable.

Podcasts anyone?

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2005

Ok, I am intrigued by podcasts, but I haven’t spent much time looking for interesting ones. Here’s the only one I listen to: Radio Ok Fred (the direct feed is here). I like their mix of European and Japanese music and they have an interesting and international trio of voices presenting the tracks. So … [...]
