"You're right, it is hard to look beyond Easy Rider in most assessments of his career, so it's great to hear more about these other films..." -Edward

A Streaming Oscar Moment
If you understood Carrie Fisher as a kindred spirit when she famously said "Instant gratification takes too long." you should know that there are two Oscar nominees currently streaming here at Netflix. 

Oh damnit. I was going to list a Woody Allen documentary streaming on PBS but turns out it was only doing that for five days. This is the problem with "instant watch" anywhere and everywhere. SO inconsistent. It's always peek-a-boo. Clearly the distributing channels of entertainment have not quite caught up with audience's "gimmegimme" modern tendencies.

Appropos of nothing, I'm kind of obsessed with this music video at the moment Henry Wolfe's "Someone Else". Sure it's almost a year old but I shall not be constricted by currency with my flash obsessions.

The Actress Brit Marling (Another Earth) stars -- you'll remember she just made the Vanity Fair rising stars cover -- and it's directed by Terri's writer/director Azazel Jacobs. I love music videos that treat themselves like short films and get how to take snapshots of larger stories and condense them. Henry Wolfe is, of course, Meryl Streep's son; you can totally see it in his profile. It probably drives the children of famous people crazy that people always mention the famous person they're related to but I really love his music and I might not have ever discovered him if I hadn't been chasing Streep info one day a few years ago and chanced upon one of his performances.

Judi Dench will surely receive a second Oscar win in supporting for the next thing she does. Which means all double supporting actress winners have only three nominations in the category.

There's a report that the majority of the Academy is white and male--over the age of 60. Makes sense why they hate older actresses--BA in your 40s being a last chance deal. Little girls acturally beating women for Supporting Actress.

Lone Henry Wolfe, talent obviously runs in his blood.

Love* sorry, he has great songs.

Speaking of Judi Dench, did anyone read the article in the Guardian about her slowly losing her eye-sight? Absolutely devasting stuff. I wish her all the best!

Adam Deacon is an unknown on every shore, trust me.

Rose -- an article about Judi's eyeiight is linked in this very post.
