Food Porn- my top five guilty pleasures: cheese (in all its glorious forms), hot wings (specifically Hooters), breakfast burritos, pho, and powdered doughnuts. This morning I skipped my healthy breakfast (an apple and yogurt) and gave in to sin. A pack of powered doughnuts and a cup of java. To justify this decision I told myself that I would only eat a few of the doughnuts with my Irish creme coffee, and eat the rest later. Of course I devoured the entire pack within a matter of minutes. Still cool.
As some of you know, Paste is one of my favorite publications. A couple days ago I received their best of 2007 issue. I was pleasantly surprised to see some of my favorite films of the year make their list, especially films like Year of the Dog and Once. Two films that I was afraid would be forgotten.
Musically, a lot of the big names made their list: Ryan Adams, Kanye West, Josh Ritter, the Shins, Springsteen, Spoon, Wilco, etc... but their number one was a band that I have never heard of- The National? The album is called Boxer, and apparently it's pretty great. Guess I'll have to check it out.
RW and I are beginning to prepare for Sundance 2008. It should be a lot of fun. If anyone is interested in going drop me a line. It's a fairly inexpensive trip (to Utah), and we'll probably only be there for a long weekend. It's pretty low key, but it's cool to be around people that love films and it's really cool to learn the stories behind the films.
Speaking of Sundance, the Independent Spirit Award nominations came out earlier this week... check it out (scroll down to see the categories and the nominees) http://www.filmindependent.org/spiritawards/interactive_nominee_guide.php
