The Hotel Venus


Japan Times article above.

Interesting Japanese film directed by Hirota Takahashi, with Korean dialogue and set in Vladivostok.

IS this touring any festivals in the U.S.A.?

Article on The Plague in America

Excellent comment from Mark Morford this week:

Bring out your dead -- the plague is already here
By Mark Morford at the San Francisco Chronicle


"[A] misguided, lost and carnal individual... filled with vexation and ignorance of God [who will] gladly cheer the anti-christ."
-- Christian Resource Network

Morford writes like a man possessed by demented angels. His twice-weekly column routinely features jaw-dropping, unflinchingly liberal prose so biting and sweet and innovative it amazes us that a mainstream daily would keep this guy on the payroll.
-- Detroit Metro Times

About the Author:

Mark Morford is a columnist for sfgate.com. He is also a yoga teacher and fiction writer and an outstanding parallel parker and fervent wine devotee and former smoker and former LA rock-god wannabe and careful insinuator and occasional unfair mudslinger and frequent skeptic and sporadic true believer and paradoxical contrarian and tattooed love-monkey and vehement non-conservative and casual coffee drinker and ardent dog lover and medium sleeper and comparison shopper and funky subtle prurient neo-pagan gleaner of screaming delicious naked nuances.

Yann Tiersen - Montreal in November

1/11/2005 YANN TIERSEN MONTREAL (Québec) - La Tulipe

2/11/2005 YANN TIERSEN MONTREAL (Québec) - La Tulipe

Two mid-week shows. Its doubtful that I'll make it up North for the concerts. One never knows, though as my birthday is also in early November.

And that review is still forthcoming...
