First-- I want to say thank you Donald Trump for axing Ivana last night. She was just annoying. I couldn't believe she thought stripping was a good tactic for selling chocolate bars. She got her just reward.
I picked up this killer magazine called UNCUT from the UK. It came with a free CD:16 Great Tracks from the films of Martin Scorsese. The first track is Tony Bennett's classic gangster ballad "Rags to Riches." I suggest slipping this in and reading the article called Word to the Wise Guys. It's an incredible piece about the making of GoodFellas. Brilliant flick. Robert De Niro asked Scorsese to consider Ray Liotta as the character of Henry Hill. The rest is history.
Other articles include: a wicked feature on U2 retelling the making of Achtung Baby (which I just bought on the iTunes Canada store for $9.99). In addition, a story about Director Tony Scott (Top Gun, Days of Thunder, True Romance, Enemy of the State,etc) wow who knew he made all these great films. And, Johnny Cash on the Folsom and San Quentin tours.
Anoyone heard the band INTERPOL. They're from NYC. They have a new album called Antics which is incredible. If you like post-punk indie like Franz Ferdinand, Libertines, or Joy Division you won't want to miss this one.
