just got back from the cinema. three nice things happened.

1. on the way to the theater, I heard my pals miniature tigers on indie 103.1, must’ve been around 9:20pm. the dj played “dino damage” and mentioned the show on thursday at pershing square. be there or be square. get pershed!

2. i saw sunshine. visually amazing, sort of messy, but i thoroughly enjoyed it. i’m a sucker for impending doom and extreme heat.

3. they showed the trailer for Wes Anderson’s latest, THE DARJEELING LIMITED!

Update: here’s the trailer!

Adrien Brody, Owen Wilson and Jason Schwartzman together at last! I don’t remember too many details because I was kind of freaking out, but I do remember two great lines of dialogue: “We think the train is lost,” and Schwartzman yelling at Brody and Wilson: “I love you too but I’m gonna mace you in the face.”

I also remember the music. The trailer was not accompanied by music from the films of Merchant Ivory and Satyajit Ray, as the poster credit reads (where’s Mark Mothersbaugh?), but by the music of The Kinks, from the brilliant concept album “Lola vs. the Powerman & the Money-Go-Round, Pt. 1.” I think I heard “This Time Tomorrow” (but I can’t be certain as, again, i was freaking out) but I definitely heard my favorite Kinks songs, the Dave Davies penned “Strangers,” play for the second half of the trailer.

So, because the trailer isn’t online yet, here’s that song:


(buy cd/vinyl)
