I saw Closer this morning, and I was right when I wrote last summer that I think it would work better as a film than a play. Or maybe I'm just saying that because Natalie Portman is in it. In any case, my review is up.

Greg.org points towards a site I'm surprised I've never seen before: the Cremaster Fanatic fansite. Of utmost interest are the details on Barney's new project: a performance/film/sculpture/documentary entitled de Lama Lamina, shot during Carnaval in Brazil this past spring, complete with 1000 dancers and, of course, vaseline. That would have been worth a trip to see live, I'll bet. The film is finished, but has yet to be exhibited in the US.

One final notice for today: gmail has added POP access, just as my old service got rid of it. I've officially switched over.

And how did Holst manage to compose The Planets without a film to guide him?
