The band Low, kings of slowcore, will appear on Carson Daly this coming Friday.

They will almost definitely play “California,” a pretty good song off their most recent album.

The news is that Sufjan Stevens’ next album in his 50 States Project, Illinois, will be out July 5. This is the followup to Greetings from Michigan: The Great Lakes State. (Seven Swans was in between, but it’s not part of the States Project.)

I really like Sufjan! He’s so good that his mp3s of Christmas songs are good enough to listen to in March.

Diarios de motocicleta

I saw the Motorcycle Diaries tonight at Flicks. It’s a movie about the young Ernesto “Che” Guevera and his friend Alberto Granando taking a 12000km trip through South America, initially by motorcycle and later by foot, boat, hitch-hiking and whatever other means were necessary. It’s a very interesting movie. The two main characters are interesting and the story is subtle, but engrossing.

Thoughts, in three:

  • there are a lot of movies based on real life, because real life is interesting. leading to…
  • I should write more about my life, particularly a memoir of my time at MIT and the quasi-autobiographical road trip screenplay that I started
  • I really should learn Spanish. If you’re in the Bay Area, you’d understand. I’m not naturally gifted at languages, but there’s no reason I shouldn’t work at Spanish (and later: Zulu and Afrikaans).
