Be water, my friends...

Forgot to mention that I caught Kung Fu Hustle last weekend. Wow! So much fun. The best thing about it is that it's a comedy. While I loved Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Hero (and I'll be watching House Of Flying Daggers on DVD soon), these films lacked the sense of humor that makes a lot of classic martial arts films so good. And while some have complained that some of the fight animation is stiff and looks phony, I think it actually added to the movie's sense of fun, as if it were saying, "These guys are so talented that it can't look real." I'd recommend that everybody go and catch this flick. I was giggling my ass off the entire time. Fun fun fun.

Doubting Thomas - The Infidel
(two Skinny Puppies bring the fear)

Onyx - Bacdafucup
("The mad author of anguish, my language polluted, Onyx is heavyweight and still undisputed")

Main - Deliquescence
(Hampson and crew throw down the minimalism; recorded live in 1997)
