So Vicky Beeching's new CD came in the mail today.

I think these kids are from Columbia.
Check them out here and there.

After a rather gruelling organic chemistry midterm, I sat down in my room to watch Crash.

It becomes obvious very quickly how this movie won Best Movie at this year's Oscars.

Writer/director Paul Haggis has crafted a modern-day tragi-moral play revolving around the ugly face of racism - especially the reversed form of it. The tale is compelling not because of the dramatic pace and narrative twist, but because every incident could possibly happen right on the streets of LA: police harrassment, car-jacking, violent gun shootings, alongside self-sacrifice and redemption.

And U2's Vertigo05 tour in Chicago has come to my mailbox in DVD.

The rendition of "Sunday Bloody Sunday" has me questioning too.
