Blue Monday

Still buzzing off some of the great rep movies I saw this weekend, especially Otto Preminger's Daisy Kenyon, a revelation. But more on that later in the week.

Today has brought online a highly touted profile of cartoonist Adrian Tomine, written by my ex-common law wife. The most newsworthy item here is that the stodgy U.S. News & Monthly Stories on the Bible gave 3 pages to a subject better suited to a Giant Robot cover story. Good job seizing that (somewhat) prized chunk of real estate, Mrs. MuseMalade. Good story, too, though I'd like to have more stuff on Dan Clowes.

A more stressful item is the following report that the NY Times might charge for content soon. Since it's the NY Times itself that's reporting it, you gotta think they're floating a trial balloon. If this means anything: Please no!

Lastly, multi-disc DVDs have gotten out of control. D'you think the Korean lesbo teen horror movie Memento Mori should really warrant a six (6) DVD set? Me neither.
