even though no one reads these...

here're some reviews...

wake up, ron burgundy: the lost movie. apparently, when they made anchorman: the legend of ron burgundy, they had so much extra material, they made another movie with the crap they didn't use. if you liked anchorman, you'll probably like "the lost movie" as well. there are some really funny parts to it. in the beginning, the narrator would have you believe that this movie happens after "anchorman," but it's basically like a whole other movie with the same formula, with a different plot and different ending. not essential or anything. i'm not sure i've ever been so indifferent about a movie before...



the chemical brothers new album, Push the Button. i loved this album... from the first track, it just made me wanna dance. or fuck. whichever. there are maybe a couple of duds, but these days, if you can find an album that you only moderately like a few songs and the rest you love? well, you have yourself a great album... the album drops 1/25.

fabriclive 18 with andy c & dj hype. within the first minute, the beats come hard and they come fast. i'm only about 10-15 minutes in, and it's not slowed down, nor does it sound like it's going to slow down at all anytime soon. the fabriclive series has never disappointed me. if you want to listen to good dance music, but you don't know anything about it, you don't know who to listen to, you could probably get any one of the fabriclive series and you'd enjoy yourself. okay, maybe not ANY... i haven't listened to them all... but the ones i have listened to? absolute gold. platinum, even.

celso machado: varal. i can not say enough about this man. he's so incredibly talented. brazilian music... fused with all sorts of different rhythms and melodies around the world... i did like his album, jongo le, better... but this was just as good. jongo le sounded more brazilian to me... but what the fuck do i know? i've never even been to brazil... i am such a latinophile.

***and on an unrelated note, urbandictionary.com's word of the day today is blog. :P

I will probably never see that movie and I disagree with you on several, but your taste in music is the best! Oh, and how about Battlestar? Man, that show just keeps getting better!
