My 2001 list for Tom the HairMaster Who Asked-In no particular order, category, year (some of it is pretty old but I just got to it), or correct spelling. Just stuff I liked in 2001 and now remember as I write this:
Chocolategenius – Godmusic
Beulah – The Coast is Never Clear
Basement Jaxx - Rooty
The Lord of the Rings books
Wilco - live show and unreleased album
The Shins – Oh Inverted World
Destroyer – Streethawk, a Seduction
In the Mood For Love
The Seven Samurai (critareon dvd edition) – Akira Kurasawa (probally the best movie I’ve seen this year. Have you seen this? Incredible. He really should of made the Lord of the Rings. Makes almost all adventure movies pale by comparison.)
O’ Brother Where Are Thou – Cohen Bro.
Tamales ( from that place in Old Irving Park the name I can’t remember. But it was like heaven on a plate)
Fast Food Nation
Comfort Me With Apples – Ruth Reichl
My Heated Mattress Pad
Nelly – (the single Ride Wit Me. It’s one of the one songs on popular radio that they played a lot and I liked a lot. It’s such a weird pop song, with that great hook that’s suppose to be boastful yet sounds melancholy, the way great pop hooks should)I'd call it my guilty pleasure but who am I kidding? I don't feel guilty.
Montreal the beautiful and tasty city (I’d go back just for another donut)
Tom’s Town – at http://www.uicradio.ws/schedule.html
Uncle Jeff - "Rock of Ages: Roots, Stems, and Seeds" at http://www.uicradio.ws/schedule.html
Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me
Le Tigre – Feminist Sweepstakes
Revolutionary Road – Richard Yates
Cold Comfort Farm – Stella Gibbons
Outkast - stankonia
Desperate Characthers – Paula Fox
Pam’s idea/wish of her being reincarnated as Pam Anderson and Kid Rock’s baby.
Atheists in foxholes
My furry slippers – Target
The Delgados – the Great Eastern
Anne Heche interviews
Maggie Chung perched on the edge of a chair in the Mood For Love
Mullholand Drive – David Lynch
Naomi Watts as a plucky Nancy Drew of sorts in the first half of Mullholand Drive.
Together –Lucas Moodysson. This was the Swedish movie about living in a commune in the 70’s.
Grounded for Life
Carter Beats the Devil – Glen David Gould
Tina Fey (of course)
Langley Schools Music Project – Innocence and Despair
Eightball issue 22 by Daniel Clowes.
And last but not least, the pot of Portuguese bean soup I’m warming up.
Um, I guess it’s a list like most others. I think I’d rather read other people’s lists than make my own. Besides, I’ve forgotten more than I’ve remembered I think.previous next
