grad school, politics, knitting and other meanderings. And not enough time for any of it.

reading my mind

It is as if Dar Williams peaked into my itunes library... Jony emailed me before the prelim this news that on Dar's new album she collaborates with Ani Difranco on a cover of Pink Floyd's "Comfortably Numb." And a cover of Neil Young's "Everybody Knows This is Nowhere." Wow. Could it get any better? I'd love to hear Ani and Dar cover Zeppelin's "the Rain Song." Maybe some day! I actually watched a movie last night. Hide & Seek- it could have been great, but then it wasn't- Jo and I should stick to old movies as we are constantly let down by newer movies. I also saw Charlie and the Chocolate Factory the other day. It was okay. It was closer to Dahl's book in its creepy-British-let's-mess-with-kids way, but much further away in terms of the actual plot, which I didn't think was good. I thought it was very (I laughed where no one else in the theatre did), and I pretty much enjoyed it, but it was missing something the first movie head. And I'm sorry- but Johnny Dep pulled out some serious Edward Scissorhands moments- not original. I didn't enjoy his take on Willy Wonka at all. But the scene where Veruca Salt is dragged into the garbage by squirrels-- always classic. And I slept in this morning (for me that means 8am) without the sheer panic of waking up and thinking only about studying. We are going to give our volvo some TLC today- cleaning her inside and out.
