It is impossible, so far as I can tell, to discuss a Wes Anderson movie without discussing Wes Anderson. If he were a car company, he’d be Morgan. Are his movies good, or are they simply charming? Is the depth an illusion? Is it too abstract, too inaccessible? Does it matter? There is a uniqueness … Read more
As ever, I endeavor to blog more. I have a few topics rattling around in my head, so I just need to sit down and write. In the meantime, I’ve been doing freelance work with Metro Calgary.

Like late Pink Floyd mixed with The Eagles mixed with Fleetwood Mac. It’s sublime. I may need to import a Japanese copy of this.
I am in the midst of a siege of amazing music unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. I used to wonder what it was like for my parents when bands like Led Zeppelin, The Doors, Pink Floyd and The Beatles would release albums within months of each other. Now I know.
