Remember when punk was scarydirtyrude and relevant to boot? Don’t lose hope, hometown heroes STNNNG certainly haven’t, and they’re here to make you care about the past and future of the form once again. Building on the legacy of broken wailers like the VSS and Nation of Ulysses, this hard-charging fivesome plays lightning quick songs riddled with tight guitars and even sharper lyrics that accuse but never abuse, and definitely, always, have an opinion.
Movie: Bringing Up Baby
Directed by Howard Hawks
Hawks ramps up the zany antics in one of the most endearing comedies of all time. Uptight paleontologist Dr. David Huxley (Cary Grant) is bewitched by the accident-prone, eccentric Susan Vance (Katharine Hepburn). After his precious dinosaur bone goes missing at her country house, it’s George the dog and Baby the pet leopard who top the list of suspects. And then things get a little crazy. 1938, U.S., BW, 16mm, 102 minutes.
