Cream City Shorts

Hello all!

Just dropping in with a few entertainment suggestions you may wanna look into.

1) Brian Jonestown Massacre: My Bloody Underground 'A' Records. First debuted as a rough mix @, the latest release by indie champion Anton Newcombe is finally available in CD format. Still very lo-fi, this album serves as a departure for the band as well as a natural shift. Past tunes like Starcleaner and Seer hinted this album would eventually come.

2) David Lines: The Modfather/My Life With Paul Weller. While in the UK (with Bud Burgy) promoting our Muscles & Fights anthology series I stumbled across this little gem of literature. This autobiography moves along nicely with the music of The Jam and Style Council as a soundtrack to modern living. A great story of a young boy stumbling his way to manhood... accompanied by the music, desert boots, Fred Perry shirts, white 501 Levi's and smart hair cuts... this book is a keeper (whether or not you're a Mod).

3) Wes Anderson: The Darjeeling, LTD. I don't know whether you're into indie films... especially of the Anderson variety... but you should definitely check out his latest. Accompanied by the short film he debuted on the internet, this film is filled with all the stuff I love about modern cinema.

That's all for now.

Have fun and be safe... and support independent music, literature, film and COMICS!
