Sidney Lumet, who has had a directing career as old as time, died today at the age of 86. He was responsible for classics such as Network and 12 Angry Men. Most recently, he did Before the Devil Knows You're Dead in 2007. RIP Mr. Lumet! I'M MAD AS HELLLLLLLL.... question: favorite Lumet film?
Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right. Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.
