The Week in Review
Only party hacks and the ambitious, the Henrys of this world following on the heels of the Milliéres, the grotesque imitators of the Commune of 1793... What an encouragement all these bloodthirsty caperings are for the arts! But there is at least one consolation in our misfortunes: that we're not politicians and have no desire to be elected as deputies.
-- Eduard Manet
We would like to celebrate you in this way. Join us for a tea, or some other beverage. Indulge these articles:
- Alex reviewed The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency.
- Molly Lambert broke down her Top 20 movies that take place in Los Angeles.
- Molly's science corner explained the glory of Mars to all the peons.
I tried to watch Nurse Jackie and write a review about it, but I stopped in the middle and watched some Sopranos episodes instead. Manet was a confident little fellow. "You must always remain master of the situation and do what you please. No school tasks, ah, no! no tasks!" he told me once. I don't remember if he told me that on the telephone or on Wikiquote.
- Georgia's journey of the heart.
- Yvonne's tender observations about her visit to New York.
- Tyler discussed how he is a finicky eater.
Light has such unity that a single tone suffices to render it. People ask me why I hated on the elderly, it's because I want to retire at a fairly young age, say 33. I will be spending my leaner years in Tampa, Florida and dating purely within my synagogue.
- Eleanor slammed The Big Bang Theory.
- Robert Coover reimagined the fairy tale of The Gingerbread House.
- Molly explained all the ways relationships fail.
We've published so many quality posts this week. It is important for you to bookmark This Recording, and visit it multiple times a day. It is a better way of living, it is like breathing, or standing still.
- Mary visited the grave of Marilyn Monroe.
- Morrissey's legend was recalled and properly appreciated by our college educated audience.
- Elisabeth reviewed Wendy & Lucy.
Breath play is death play, wrote the poet, and Molly also twitters for those of you into that sort of thing. Don't forget to read the This Recording tumblr. It's honestly astonishing how much content we are providing you with. Content is king, and so is Manet.
- Will was inspired by an Edward Hopper painting.
- Alex wrote his treatise against the elderly that got him a lot of nasty e-mails.
- We went back in time and re-appraised Forgetting Sarah Marshall.
