Woo WHICHEVER WAY YOU ARE GOING, YOU ARE GOING WRONG (1982)



They put me in an incredible mood yesterday, I was singing all day long, which happens maybe once a year, so I'm going to double-down and see if these brothers are operating on some frequency I've been missing for too long.

THE LITTLE HOURS dir. Jeff Baena (2017)





As funny as anything I've seen this year, as well as a celebration of slow, communal living and the Italian countryside. I wish more farces took themselves this seriously in terms of making a beautiful film as a second greater gift.

It is 99¢ on Amazon right now.  Just realized there is no cents symbol on the keyboard. Inflation is out of control!

Ryo Fukui MY FAVOURITE TUNE (1995)



Great jazz often sounds Christmas-y to me, the spirit of joyful serendipity, solitude and laughter, bon temps and good cheer.
