Obviously, Nonesuch Records has posted the second part of the Stephin/Claudia conversation, entitled LA: A Folk Heaven.  Watch it, love it.  Two tons of fun.

But, also, and perhaps more excitingly, it's been announced that the aforementioned-on-this-blog documentary directed by Gail O'Hara and Kerthy Fix, Strange Powers: Stephin Merritt and The Magnetic Fields, will be being screened at the SF360Film+Club, according to this website.  There is, unfortunately, no way for me to make it to this screening, but if anyone wants to pay to fly me there, it would be much appreciated.  Seriously, though, for those with the capability of attending, it'd be cool if you let me know in the comments or via e-mail what the film is like.

Also, The Guardian has posted a review of Realism.  It's a positive review, but kind of frustrating as it's about 90% about 69 Love Songs.  But, still, it's nice that only nice things are being said about the record.

    Gah! You would have to be 21 or older to even go see it, it says that on the SFFS website... But I see no reason why they wouldn't release it on DVD, it looks like this is just going to be a sneak-peak.

  2. Well, shee-yit, I didn't even see that!! Even if someone ever-so-kindly bought me a ticket to SF, I wouldn't be allowed in to the screening.

    Buncha horseshit. But, thanks for being observant, sir!
