Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is Polar Express but with Nazis
I readily admit that I know only a little more than nothing about classical music. A few years ago, though, Rachel and I came across the video of Bernstein conducting Mahler’s Resurrection Symphony and, to our surprise, found ourselves crying by the end. So, yeah, I’ll be watching this movie.
Watched Jim Jarmusch’s Stranger Than Paradise. We used to spend a lot of time doing nothing in the pre-internet days.
Last night Rachel and I watched “The Unbinding”, the new documentary from the Newkirks. If you’re interested in haunted objects, I highly recommend this one. Available on Prime.
Rachel and I watched the Earthing documentary over the weekend. Basically, it makes the argument for the therapeutic usefulness of actual feet on the actual ground. As with most things like this, I’m less interested in this or that “evidence” and more interested in it as a practice of reconnection.
If you have interest in the film and/or paganism, The Sing-Along-A-Wicker-Man Scrapbook by David Bramwell is thoroughly enjoyable. It’s also well-made–a pleasure to hold and look over.
Penda’s Fen, folks. I never heard of this movie before yesterday and now I can’t get it out of my head. Pagan, anarchist, localist, seventies British folk horror. There’s so much going on in it.
Well this is beautiful: short documentary about Alfie Jacques, one of the last wooden lacrosse stick makers among the Onondaga.
Amazing documentary about a would-be terrorist.
My daughter Darcy has declared this Spooky Saturday. She says this involves Starbucks for breakfast, putting up more Halloween decorations, carving the pumpkin, a campfire, and more of the Spooked podcast. They’re still asleep at the moment so I’m watching Horror of Dracula.
