Alex Ross is a music critic on staff at The New Yorker, and I have been enjoying his contributions in that magazine as well as I have also read his great book The Rest is Noise. This volume is a collection of some of his essays, and I already started reading his piece on Björk.
New Stuff: Witchcraft Through the Ages: The Story of Haxan, the World's Strangest Film, and the Man Who Made It (Cinema Classics)
A great little booklet on one of my favourite cinema classics, a birthday gift from Tanja.

Gil Scott-Heron - 'I'm New Here'
I did not become someone different
That I did not want to be
But I'm new here
Will you show me around
No matter how far wrong you've gone
You can always turn around
Met a woman in a bar
Told her I was hard to get to know
And near impossible to forget
She said I had an ego on me
The size of Texas
Well I'm new here and I forget
Does that mean big or small
No matter how far wrong you've gone You can always tournaround
And I'm shedding plates like a snake
And it may be crazy but I'm
The closest thing I have
To a voice of reason
Turnaround turnaround turnaround
And you may come full circle
And be new here again
