Wanna see Ellen Page "Whip It!"? Of course!

And when you've got something as fun as that, I suppose you really don't need anything else, but if I can briefly make a music recommendation, I'm listening to St. Vincent's "The Actor" this morning, and it really is rather amazing.

I rarely buy CDs (well, Itunes downloads more often now) without knowing a pretty good deal about them, but I saw this reviewed in some mag and just decided it sounded good, and it indeed does. The second album from the woman also known as Annie Clark, a former member of the Polyphonic Spree, is just a weird, wonderful little collection of songs, and well worth checking out.

But quickly on to the main course, because I'm very soon going to see "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," and my mind isn't really on anything else to write too long. Below is the first trailer for director Drew Barrymore's "Whip It!", which stars Ellen Page (welcome back!), Kristen Wiig and even Alia Shawkat of "Arrested Development" in a roller derby movie. I can't imagine you need to know much more than that to be intrigued, but know that the flick, due out Oct. 9, was also written by Shauna Cross who used to skate under the name Maggie Mayhem for the Los Angeles Derby Girls. Enjoy, and have a perfectly bearable Thursday. Peace out.

With any luck I'll see Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince this weekend. I just hope it lives up to some of the reviews I've seen.

I just saw it before going to work, Mr. Mercurie, and in my personal opinion it's nearly flawless summer entertainment and just a damn fine flick

I just discovered St. Vincent the other day. Hopefully I'll have that album in my hot little hands this afternoon. She also used to tour with the absolutely awesome Sufjan Stevens.

I'd love to see that, Bob, but I'm not sure I can afford to drive to Atlanta for it .. I probably will, though, to see "500 Days of Summer" this weekend

I have been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting
article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did,
the web will be a lot more useful than ever
