The Trim Bin #47

- Wake me up on May 4.

- Cinevistaramascope has gone commercial (sort of). To your right, you'll notice a few Amazon links to books, music and movies I've enjoyed recently. I've tried to make them as unobtrusive as possible, and while you'll never see me pushing any product here, if you do happen to think to yourself, "Hey, I've been meaning to see that," than we both win. These days, it's all about the Benjamins.

- On election night I watched The Cook the Thief His Wife & Her Lover; as the film reached its gruesome ending, I realized that it made for perfect election-night viewing. The administration has finally been confronted as the primitive beast that it is ("Cannibal"). Whether or not this will result in meaningful change is yet to be seen, but for now, it's pretty damn gratifying.

- I've recently begun writing freelance articles for the North Adams Transcript; here's one on an upcoming show at WCMA, and a more informal column similar to the one I write for should start soon. It's sort of a personal milestone for me - it marks the first time I've gotten paid for my writing (although the column will be for the fun of it). It's strange - as far as screenwriting goes I'm sort of blocked, but I always look forward to coming back here and sharing my thoughts on the movies I'm seeing, and the Transcript looks to be an extension of that - I've gone semi-professional doing what I do for fun. As John Lennon once said, "Life is what happens when you're making other plans."

He also said, "I am the egg man."

- Finally, in honor of the late composer Basil Poledouris, here's a sample of his finest work:

Films watched this week:

Land of the Dead 7
Eyes Wide Shut
Jesus Camp
Apollo 13

Spider-Man 3 has me quite excited. Raimi just gets what the character is all about. Stan Lee once said that people read the comic because it's not about Spider-Man, but because it's about the loser Peter Parker. Raimi seems to capture this very sentiment perfectly.
And I think Lennon's quote fits the story of our protaginist quite well.
