Under the Milkyway...or New York City Harvest Moon*

Many things happen. When the season starts to change you and you can sense that crisp under current of cool northern air it is quite thrilling, to experience New York in the fall. I also personally thing that Autumn is the most romantic time of year. Or at least it has always been very kind to me during my short time on earth. Which is why it was most exciting to finally venture out and see 'Once' last weekend and hopefully add to that by going to see Darjeeling Express this weekend. 'Once' was not a complex film. In fact it was so simply made that even the camera style had the overall feeling of a home made video. But simple stories are sometimes the best. Especially when it comes to love, because well-love is anything but. Sometimes you just meet people and they change your whole life. Really- it does still happen and maybe the Fall is a good time to remember that. Or at least try to. We all are incredibly busy, but we are all incredibly loved, by someone-and you might not even know it. Wes Anderson is all the buzz today with the iTunes sponsored release of his short film, Hotel Chevalier. Jason Schwartzman and Natalie Portman perfect that painful chemistry of that messy and oh so enjoyable 'exboyfriend~exgirlfriend situation.' You know the one. "The short, which was shot in 2005 and stars Jason Schwartzman and a bruised-up Natalie Portman, was originally intended as a "working draft for the feature," according to the LA Times. Anderson also tells the Times that he hoped Chevalier "would play out like a piece of short fiction while Darjeeling would unspool like a novel."-GorillavsBear Immediately after viewing this film i crafted the following playlist for one of my very dear friends who although he lives in Paris has not listened to new/live music in ages and well...this is for you my dear. For the rest of you, i invite you to take what you like and hopefully share it with someone you enjoy.
