Oh! Lists, is it?!


List (in no particular order) three things from Positively Cool Street that most of the folks you know are unaware of, thus far.

1. The film The Magical Life of Long Tack Sam (currently in rotation on Sundance or IFC, I forget which).

2. The anime Wolf's Rain, currently on Cartoon Network, Saturday nights. Wonderful Yoko Kanno score, astonishing scripts by Keiko Nobumoto and others (yes, both women of Cowboy Bebop "fame"). Unlike Bebop-O, even in the English-language teevee version this one works...though it's even better uncut and subtitled. (And if you still haven't seen Bebop itself in its original version, give it a try!...and the Bebop movie, currently on one of the Cinemax channels, is well worth a look, even dubbed. :) )

3. From the CD bin, a tie for "impossibly back in print": Harry Partch's Delusion of the Fury, and Firesign alum Phil Austin's Roller Maidens From Outer Space -- the latter only from Laugh.com, bless its papa, George Carlin. (And while we're on the subject, Romeo Void's Instincts, Rupert Holmes's Widescreen ("The Collector's Edition"), and The Holy Modal Rounders' Good Taste is Timeless are back from the dead, as well.)

So there's my eight or nine, uhh, "three things." How 'bout yours?
