What I'm Digging - September 8, 2006

Books


Blink by Malcom Gladwell

Scott says: "Okay I'm only a bit into this but I'm gonna make a snap judgement anyway and say: READ IT!"


Music


Illinois aka Come On Feel The Illinoise by Sufjan Stevens

Scott says: "A lyrical tour through the state that even has a lovely song about John Wayne Gacy."


The River In Reverse by Elvis Costello & Allen Toussaint

Scott says: "Costello set out to make a songbook of Toussaint's wonderful New Orleans R&B and ended up creating one of the year's best records and a terrific musical response to the bungling of the Katrina aftermath."


St. Elsewhere by Gnarls Barkley

Scott says: "Hard to describe, just get it and shake, shake, shake."


Movies


An Inconvenient Truth and Who Killed The Electric Car?

Scott says: "There's no pretending it ain't real anymore. See both and get motivated to do something about it."


DVDs


Masters of Horror: Joe Dante - Homecoming

Scott says: "Starring our own Thea Gill. If you missed it on Showtime catch it on DVD. Terrific political bent on the zombie genre."
