What a surprise. Taking a little New Year's Eve break from my wall-to-wall fest programming screening. I enjoy some home made soup and texas caviar and catch up with the year end Austin Chronicle. I come across the music Top 10s and don't expect any ahas. Just reading for a quick familiarity and name recognition. Audra Schroeder's Best National Live Show: tuxedomoon. TUXEDOMOON!! They're still around? I saw them regularly in San Francisco @ 1978. I loved them then. Quick internet check and damn, yes, there they are, same song, and it still sounds good. 30 years.
Happy New Year!

What a movie! I cried my way through this beautiful, sad, uplifting, and important work. As I expected it was almost overwhelming in terms of personal history and resonance, but of course, it's so much greater than that. Just a great piece - great acting, great directing, vitality, sensitivity but also, of course, its politics. Go see it. Amen.
