Mew "Wherever" Single

Music Notes

“Wherever” By Mew

Book: Easy Riders, Raging Bulls

My Library

I´m currently reading (again) ”Easy Riders, Raging Bulls” how the sex-drugs-and rock´n´roll generation saved Hollywood, by Peter Biskind (Simon & Shuster Ed., 1998). The book tells the story of the last golden days of Hollywood, when Spielberg, Coppola and Lucas created the blockbuster cinema, changing the movie bussiness forever. It´s a very funny material, interviews with all the Hollywood people in the 70´s, onscreen and off.
Now, there´s a documentary of 2003 about the book. But many of the subjects profiled in author Peter Biskind's book, including directors Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Robert Altman, and William Friedken all declined interviews for the documentary. So, better read the book!

paradise now
this is why I couldn´t write last month. too busy at paradise. It was like beeing at the Lost island, without the invisible monsters :-) (by the way, this Lost story reminds me so much of the Shakespeare´s play The Tempest).
