Hit up Quote Unquote Records for a free download of Laura Stevenson's sweet, quirky, eight-track album. Her sound is similar to CocoRosie, with a little bit of Mirah and Brooke Waggoner thrown in, as well as, of course, her own unique twist. Also, download her colaboration album Split, with Bomb The Music Industry.

Yesterday, I finally went to see The Fantastic Mr. Fox. Wes Anderson's adaptation of the Roald Dahl book was simply stupendous. The imagery was just beautiful, a true work of art. The animation was whimsical and fun, without being childish and armature. Indeed, it was not a movie for children, but rather the child within us all.
With George Clooney as the voice of Mr. Fox, Meryl Streep as Mrs. Fox, my ever favorite Jason Schwartzman as Ash, Bill Murray as Badger, and even Owen Wilson with the small roll of Coach Skip, it was a true Wes Anderson all-star cast.
With such amazong movies as The Royal Tennenbaums, The Darjeeling Limited, Bottle Rocket, The Life Aquatic and Rushmore already under his belt, Anderson is now able to add his first animated film to his already impressive resume. I don't think I will ever be able to truely comprehend how his mind works in such wonderful, quirky ways.

Check out Raspberry Beret this Friday for a sweet deal. They have an excellent array of new and vintage, all at already reasonable prices. Plus, the woman who works there is by far the nicest, most helpful person I have ever encountered at a consignment store.
