QotD: Today’s Top 5

Books, movies, music; what's in your top 5 right now?

The O'Jays' "Backstabbers," aka my cell phone's ringtone (this week, at least. Next week it might be Peter Bjorn and John's "Young Folks," Kenny Loggins' "Heart to Heart," Pavement's "Cut Yr. Hair" )

Natalie Hopkinson and Natalie Y. Moore's "Deconstructing Tyrone: A New Look at Black Masculinity in the Hip-Hop Generation"

"Shortbus." Best American movie of the year, so your Hollywood studios' Oscar-bait releases are just so much kibble and chum. folds arms

My One True Music Collection's looking pretty good at the moment. O Gurusonaa, mighty, mighty backup hard drive of mine, I'd sing your praises if it wasn't already clear that you have more than enough songs on you to do it for me.

I was slowly making it through Michael Ondaatje's "The Conversations." I'd like to pick up steam and just plow through it before month's end, but I don't think it's going to happen. If only I moved through media more quickly. I could watch (and make) more movies instead of just reading about them.

  1. karen: Thank you. I usually prefer color or black-and-white, but sepia was speaking to me that evening for some reason. The others are somewhere up on Flickr.

    Nikki: Heh, it’s either read about film or do it. I know which adventure you’ve chosen. 🙂 Hey, check out the DT blog when you’re free!
