Hiya I wanted to comment on the article, but you hafta pay to comment on that site and I'm not doing that. I'm glad they employ you and all, but... Not A Fan. OK. This week I went into my most excellent city (London) to see Control at an arty cinema in Soho. The place was great, has a little bar with all this diverse food (no barrel-sized cardboard drink shit), and we hung out there for a bit before the film, looking at all the interesting people and eavesdropping on their conversations. The people looked bright and intelligent, animated and way stylish. And I liked the trailers; they were for films I hadn't heard of but def would like to see. And even in themselves they were good bits of filmmaking. The film itself was so good that I forgot anybody else was there but me. The sound system was awesome and I got to hear the songs I love like I've never heard them before. Then after the film ended we wandered around Chinatown and had some great food there and watched more interesting people. So that was a great night, made me feel really alive and happy in my life; it was the highlight of my week. I can slump in my fetid sofa with a dvd any time, and no matter how good the film, it depresses me at the end of the night when I realise what I've just done with my evening. I think you just have to think about how you choose to consume. Or move to Europe. OK And: I am a fanatical reader and am always searching for something to read - and I spend so much time in bookshops just trying to find something, anything, that's even readable, let alone actually Good. So much crap, just the same thing over and over again - that is MY problem with reading - I can't find anything good to read. To me cinema is far more dynamic and exciting right now than print publishing is - like WAY more. 2 pence.

The political blogs don't make me smart. They just make me depressed, really. But Art is Fun! The best and smartest blog I read is by Nick Currie, who sort of was a musician called Momus, but writes a lot about culture, design, art, technology and Japan... he even has a column in Wired, how's that for a recommendation. He's a very good writer, and posts long, thoughtful, well-researched things almost every day. But the best part of reading his blog is that he helps me open my eyes more, to see that the people and things around me in daily life are actually really interesting and great. He writes at http://www.livejournal.com/users/imomus/ and though as he will be the first to admit can be really pretentious at times (and his comments are so pretentious, I can't bear them!) he always makes me very smart. Second best is Neil Gaiman, but we all love him already of course. cheers Stephanie
