What have you been reading, listening to, watching?

Discovering the Artistry of a NYC Photographer
Via BoingBoing, I read this interesting article in the Smithsonian about the discovery of Eugene de Salignac's work. As a city employee, de Salignac took tens of thousands of photos of NY city during the early 1900s. Was he the artist or was the city itself? You decide: here is a link to a handful of great photos.

This year's top 5 rated films on Metacritic, so far:
1. Ratatouile
2. The Lives of Others
3. No End in Sight
4. Once
5. This is England

1. The Field: From Here We Go Sublime
2. Arcade Fire: Neon Bible
3. Patty Griffin: Children Running Through
4. M.I.A. - Kala
5. LCD Soundsystem: Sound of Silver

I've seen/heard #2 in the music list and #3 in film. That's it. You? Any recs or disagreements?

Weekend Box Office
1. The Brave One
2. 3:10 to Yuma
3. Mr. Woodcock
4. Dragon Wars
5. Superbad

Nice to see the Sopranos get one last award (I suppose they'll be up for Golden Globes in the Spring also). Here's the full list of winners and nominees.

I have to admit, I've hardly read, listened to or watched anything. Help a brother out.
