Two quick raves

More to come on these, but...

Slumdog Millionaire IS as good as you've been told. Tremendously well-acted, it is intense on every front. There are some critics saying otherwise. Those people, it can be said with certainty, either have no souls or are the kinds of people who bitch about free Miller Lite.

Second...

I have been extremely critical of U2 since All That You Can't Leave Behind. I have felt like they put their creativity in a box since Pop, favoring indulgent songs that please their ultra-entitled fans. Their new disc shows otherwise. I cannot stop listening to it. Songs are subtle, relying not on Bono's bravado, but the flat out skill of the entire group. It's nice to have them back.

More to come...
