Now I am obsessing over this Guy Maddin film, Careful. I have watched the movie, the directors comments, the documentary of the making. He is so amazing. This is one reason DVDs are so great. I really have to rent Tales from the Gimli Hospital. He is definitley one of my fave filmakers.
I am having a minor streak of bad luck. It was capped off with a bottle of red kids medicine completely leaking into my jacket pocket this morning at Cafe Brasiliano. (I will spare you the details of why I had it there in the first place)
Well, at least our riding got Olivia Chow to Ottawa. That is a small blessing when I think of the Conservatives in power.
Heh, I forgot to mention my letter to the editor in this week's Now Magazine. The funny thing was I didn't really send it to the editor but they printed it anyways. I was just trying to send a quick note to the film section of the paper to let them know I appreciated the quality of their writing and there it was in the paper. (sorry I couldn't find the link to it online)
This is a great article, informative and inspiring written by a guy I went to the Banff School of the Arts with about a guy I went there with. I have stayed in touch with Benoit Delbecq and often bump into him on the road when both of us are touring in Canada. He is easily one of my favourite pianists alive today.

I just heard a great concert on CBC's Onstage. I remember Ravi telling me about it when they were rehearsing but I just luckily turned on the radio at the start of the two hour concert when I was doing the dishes. (here is the info from the cbc website, disapointing as there are no photos or anything of the show...CBC rocks (way to go Todd Frarachi for producing a great show) when it comes to radio but really doesn't "get" the web yet.
