"Beautiful though it is, I find the language of epic unconvincing, for I cannot accept that the myths we tell about our lives prepare us for the brighter, more authentic second lives that are meant to begin when we awake. Because-for people like me, at least-that second life is none other than the book in your hand. So pay close attention, dear reader. Let me be straight with you, and in return let me ask for your compassion." - Orhan Pamuk

Six summers ago, the rigorously stylish New York rock-band revival—skinny guys in skinny pants slinging vintage guitars and vintage attitudes—was exploding through the global music scene like a timed demolition. Today the idea seems almost ready for VH1. The Strokes have retreated into occasional mentions in real-estate columns (plus the guitarist’s solo project), while once-hot acts like the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and the Walkmen float in a seemingly terminal spiral of diminished expectations. Meanwhile, the New Yorkiest musicians of the moment aren’t rock bands at all but post-punk pasteup artists (LCD Soundsystem), remixers (Girl Talk), folk revisionists (Animal Collective, Grizzly Bear, Sufjan Stevens), and the kind of arch downtown trash (Scissor Sisters, Dangerous Muse) that the Great Rock Revival thought it knocked back behind the makeup counter. Products of the iPod/YouTube/ProTools generation, they’re more futuristic and oblique, music made mostly in bedrooms.

In this environment, Interpol returns with their third album, Our Love to Admire, at risk of seeming beside the point. Never the most original member of a fundamentally derivative scene—their first album, Turn on the Bright Lights, was knocked early and often for adhering a little too closely to the Joy Division playbook—they’re a surprising candidate for the last band left standing. “In 2001, we weren’t mentioned that much, in terms of New York City bands,” says guitarist Daniel Kessler, who assembled the group (which includes singer Paul Banks, drummer Sam Fogarino, and guitarist Carlos D) from fellow NYU students in 1997. “When the Strokes were becoming a worldwide phenomenon, people weren’t writing about us, and we’d been around for four years.”

The 100 movies in 2006 challenge.

I saw this in another LJ and I thought it was a pretty cool idea. I think if Truffaut could file and write comments about all the movies he saw, I think I could list the ones I have seen so far.

Let's take some time to pay respects of my favorite cup. It's now broken in many pieces and its final resting place is in the garbage. :(

A sad moment indeed.
