Music: Thanks to Pink Monday, for helping me discover Mika. This artist’s song “Grace Kelly” is so good, I have the tune in my mind all the time. I got an earlier listening to his upcoming CD Life in cartoon motion and it’s very good. Other recommended songs are: “Big Girl”, “Relax, take it easy” and “Love Today”, which was used in a (Red) commercial.
Movies: El Laberinto de Fauno (Pan’s Labyrinth)– Topped my all time favorite movies. The film is a flawless mix of fantasy and reality in Spain 1944. La Letrina posted a nice review of the movie here.
DVDs: Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Prices– Hate corporations? Concerned about Wal-Mart’s mischievous ways? This documentary is good for you (also is very informative). Not a Bowling for Columbine but entertaining and emotional enough to get your attention.
Jesus Camp- This is the most terrifying thing I’ve seen. Fundamentalist Christians are taking over the world. Doubt it? Then check this out. This documentary is shocking. How people brainwash little kids into becoming an army of Jesus is frightening enough by shaping a “black and white” society even more. Highly Recommended.
PS. Those of you who haven’t seen Dreamgirls, do so! Yes, it was dumbly snubbed by the Oscars but the movie is really good. If not interested on that at least have the dignity to watch the stellar and Oscar and SAG worthy performance of Jennifer Hudson!
