2010 in film, so far.

top five 2010 films I have seen thus far this year (theatrical & festival viewings):

The Ghost Writer (Roman Polanski)

Greenberg (Noah Baumbach)

Exit Through the Gift Shop (Banksy)

Casino Jack and the United States of Money (Alex Gibney)

happythankyoumoreplease (Josh Radnor)

HM: The Oath (Laura Poitras)

Sadly, with the exception of restorations (Lang's Metropolis and Godard's Breathless), I have nothing on my to-see list until June 18th when Toy Story 3, The Killer Inside Me, and Cyrus are released. Then July brings The Kids are All Right (07/09) and Inception (07/16), nothing in August (as of now)... hopefully I'll have be able to write up some proper film analyses over the next three months (first on the list is Down by Law, I think).

This is bliss.

Subiza - Delorean (out now digitally, in stores June 8th).

I just ordered this on the Matador Records online store and it came with an instant download of the entire album. I'm listening to it now and hoping it encompasses what my summer 2010 will be, because I'll be listening to it all summer no doubt (akin to the Ayrton Senna EP from last year).

Here's a taste (if you haven't already, it's a must): Stay Close [mp3]

...looks like I'll be Barca-Beat fist-pumping these hot nights away, one at a time.
