SWEET THIN LIZ





If it's not on Thin Lizzy's 'Fighting' or Sweet's 'Desolation Boulevard' I don't really wanna hear it, know what I mean?

REALLY ROSIE

Recently went to see Nilsson's The Point movie at the Royal cinema in Toronto. This was my first time seeing this particular childhood favourite on the big screen. Playing before the main feature was Really Rosie, a Maurice Sendak animated short with music by Carol King... I hadn't even heard of this film. Not as good as The Point, even so another example of a 70's kids film with musical appeal for the older set. Pretty charming.

Beware 'Chicken Soup With Rice' it may never leave your head once you've heard it.

BOWIE BEE SIDES

Making up for some blog neglect with some exclusive (as in, not Twitter-centric) CONTENT.

Here are some Bowie cuts not found on his albums proper. Young Americans has been a top 3 Bowie LP for me the last couple years, was cool to hear some cuts that never made that album...

Who Can I Be has to be one of his greatest vocal performances in his 'soul style'. Lovely stuff...



Can see why this one never made the cut... I like it, but it's certainly not as good as any other tune off YA, nor the other out take above. Interesting nonetheless.



Bowie does Boss with the Young American band.



WOMAN'S ADVOCATE

Women's Advocate from M. Remy on Vimeo.

Have a look at Meg's latest short film. Tragic & hilarious. Kristen Wiig, look out.
