last days pt. 1

I have not forgotten to express my undying jubilation about the recent Criterion Collection DVD release of Whit Stillman's genius take on youth and nightlife in "The Last Days of Disco." Although it happened over a month ago, my brain is still trying to compute that I met him and his muse, Chris Eigeman at the Lincoln Film Center screening timed with the release of the DVD. Once I'm able to fully put together my thoughts I'll of course share it with The Look-See. Until then, I've compiled my list of five songs that could have been on the already brilliant soundtrack. I can only imagine Charlotte and Alice awkwardly swaying off beat to these personal favorites:

"Dance Dance Dance (Yowsah, Yowsah, Yowsah)

"Disco Nights"

"You Can't Turn Me Away"
Sylvia Striplin

"Wordy Rappinghood"
Tom Tom Club

"We Got the Funk"
Positive Force

i saw the light

Peek Table Lamp, $29.99

Don't ask why, but it took me forever to settle on a lamp I liked for my new apartment. It's the only one I wanted for my room, so it had to be jusssssst right. This lamp from CB2 is coolly designed with a partially transparent metallic shade that illuminates my room in a soft, calming light. Now I'm free to see the world!

song of the week: 90% of you

"90% of Me Is You"
Gwen McCrae

Good stuff.
