choice things for: October 2004

Tuesdays, 9pm UPN

A great new show in a very Twin Peaks-ish (not art-wank but everyone in the town has a sordid tale waiting to be unearthed) + Buffy (snappy dialogue + girl hero) sort of way. Enjoy it before the plebeian masses demand it be cancelled to make room for a Summerland spin-off.

Neil Young's directorial debut, shot on super 8 and dialogue performed entirely by Neil Young and Crazy Horse. Sort of like a folk rock opera.

 

All-around brazen lass, Cintra Wilson's first novel. Also check out her obscenely good (it's a bit more cheerful than it sounds).

A touchingly honest and hilarious romantic comedy set during an apocalyptic zombie siege.
