Was gonna write something important and mean, but the weather is too nice for bullshit.
PICTURE OF THE CAT
I made him a fort!
WHAT I WATCHED YESTERDAY
At some point I do actually intend to get through the rest of my 2020 to watch list. Yesterday I wanted something light, so I put on Let Them All Talk, the Steven Soderbergh film that asks, “what if a bunch of great actresses and Lucas Hedges were on a ship together? Wouldn’t that be fun?” It is is very fun. They improvised their way across the Atlantic, and sometimes the lack of a real script shows, but it isn’t a problem because you’re just hanging out with wonderful actresses.
SONG OF THE DAY
Last week I spent like an hour trying to find this song back, with only the lyric fragment “cut my hair for free” and the knowledge that the band was a post-Libertines knockoff that never went anywhere. I’ve been getting nostalgic for a certain era of the NME lately, it’s terrible. I vaguely remember the story behind this song — when they were just starting out they had a couple of fans who showed up at all their gigs to dance and drink, who were hairdressers in the daytime, and offered to hook the band up with some free haircuts. Why this stuck with me heavens knows.
