There are other Schubert pieces I like, but these are, perhaps, my favorites. Also born on this day: the author Marie Luise Kaschnitz (1901–1974) and Theodor Heuss (1884–1963), who was the first person elected to a regular term as president of the BRD after WWII.
Inside: Life sucks, the most irrational number, the day in review, and life rocks.
City Battles Giant Blob. Both the N.Y. Times (Manohla Dargis) and the Onion A.V. Club like 4 Months, 3 Weeks And 2 Days: "You may already have heard something about '4 Months,' which was awarded the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival last year, only to be shut out from Academy Award consideration a few weeks ago by the philistines who select the foreign-language nominees." (Dargis). The A.V. Club was not so kind in reviewing Meet the Spartans (Grade: a rare F—"At the beginning of the year [...] Friedberg and Seltzer release another half-assed, quickie spoof flick [...] and the strategy so far has led to big opening weekends followed by precipitous drop-offs once word gets around that, shockingly, their movies are fucking terrible.")
Inside: A day of things not going quite as planned.
I'm sorry, but this isn't nearly as good as verbal tea.
Nathan Rabin's Commentary Tracks of the Damned "finished" today with entry #104, Tom Tykwer's Perfume, reevaluated (after Rabin's initial dislike) as a "Secret Success," and I agree to a great extent, for it's a flawed film but one that strives and is interesting. I watched it last fall with my roommate; this, I believe, I related here already (and if not, just imagine that I did). I seem to have both a German and English version of the novel on my shelves. Both unread.
Curiouser and curiouser. And I have some Ransmeyr on a shelf. That sounds dirty.
