We've Been Had

Songs in my head:
"Either Coast" by the Reputation
"We've Been Had" by the Walkmen
"Ladies and Gentlemen, We're Floating in Space" by Spiritualized
"Life On Mars?" by David Bowie
"Rebel Rebel" by David Bowie

Had a really good Sunday. No flag football but I took the dog for a long walk in the afternoon. Maybe it was too long: she was pooped afterwards and didn't really get off her pillow for the rest of the day. I couldn't help it: the weather was amazing. Sunny, warm but not muggy. Like a Spring day, only in January.

After seeing it on Christmas day, I still can't get moments from the Life Aquatic out of my head. There's the slow motion part with "Life On Mars?". There's Seu Jorge and his acoustic renditions of Bowie songs in French. Then there is final scene, which according to the the IMDb, is an intentional nod to the final scene in Buckaroo Banzai, one of my favorite movies as a kid. I don't know if I should see it in the theater again or just wait for the DVD. Hopefully Criterion will be issuing it just like they did with Rushmore and the Royal Tenenbaums.
