Today: news that made my day!

As a fairly recent fan of the charming brothers Mael, AKA Sparks, I had heard about this bit of brilliance some time ago and was sad that I wouldn't be able to see its limited run in LA.

Sparks Concoct 'The Seduction of Ingmar Bergman'

Part concept album, part radio drama, part opera, part Hollywood satire, “The Seduction of Ingmar Bergman” applies Sparks’ signature brand of outrageous subject matter, barbed humor and expansive-yet-catchy pop music in exploring what might have happened had Hollywood come calling on Bergman in the wake of his critical breakthrough in 1956 at the Cannes Film Festival with “Smiles of a Summer Night.”

But I see now from this article that it is being made into a film, to be directed by none other than GUY MADDIN, who directed one of my favorite short films ever, The Heart of the World.

Stoked doesn't even come close.
