Barking Towards Bethlehem

I don't know if (and when) this film will hit art-house theaters in LA, but the Hungarian movie "White God" has just received some serious attention at the Cannes Film Festival. I'm trying not to digest any reviews of this film (though I did peek at one) because I want to be surprised by it - whether it be my fright or instead my cheers for the underdog - pun intended. The cast includes 250 dogs and no CGI. Is it subtitled? I have no idea and don't care. I was sold at "250 dogs." I get the sense it's a *light* horror film with an uprising-of-the-oppressed plot line - heavy in social commentary if you chose to make that leap. References to Hitchcock's "The Birds" and the word "xenophobia" were both tossed around in the one review I read and heck - I'm all for overcoming irrational fear of the strange. So "White God" - get yourself to LA so I can give ya a good long scratch behind the ears. I'll be seeing you opening day.

Orgasmic Singing

I wrote a little over a year ago about women reading literature while having orgasms. (I invite you to check that out here.) The Dutch girl band ADAM has recently released a music video of their song "Go to go" and in it, they sing while orgasming. It's simple, sexy and sweet. Love it!
