Cremaster, Fitness, Westerns, Louis C.K.


The Order from Matthew Barney's Cremaster 3.  Years ago I read about Barney, probably in The New Yorker, and Barney's artwork.  Barney made several films that sounded fascinating but I doubt many museum in the country hosted a viewing.  The films sounded bizarre and fascinating.   

I would periodically search for DVD (and VHS copies more years back) copies of the film series but could not find any reasonably priced copies.  I did a search last week on and this came up for about $35.  Of course now, with the internet, you can watch the whole series online.  I'm behind the times, man.

Hilarious by Louis C.K.  I'm behind ordering this, too.  The copyright is 2011.  But, people will still enjoy watching.  I won't bother trying to find a profanity free video clip.

Sweetwater starring January Jones, Ed Harris.  Vengeance western.

Ain't Them Bodies Saints starring Casey Affleck, Rooney Mara, Ben Foster.  Armed robber escapes from prison and goes to meet his family.  Western set in 1970s Texas.

Quick Fit with Andrea Metcalf.  30 5-minute workouts.

Escape Your Shape: 21-Day Body Makeover.  Exercises.

Audiobooks on CD

More extra copies I will not type in.

Havana Moves Italy


Havana Lost by Libby Fischer Hellmann.  You may know Hellmann from bloggers Bill Crider, Bill Crider, and Bill Crider.  Or maybe you know her from 2:24.  This novel has revolutionary Cuba, a love affair, mobsters, and page 200 which says, "[blank]."


Monster Moves: adventures moving the world's biggest structures by Carlo Massarella.  Lighthouses, submarines, University of Virginia's Varsity Hall, and houses that are cut apart, moved and then reassembled.

Brass Instrument Manual by Simon Croft and Andy Taylor.  My kid plays tuba.  I was going to buy my own mouthpiece and have him teach me what he learns but I never got around to it.

Italy, 2014 by DK Eyewitness.  Another photo-filled, fun and fiery flying folio for '14.

Audiobooks on CD

These are also second copies, so I won't type them in.  I won't even take a photograph.
