Weekly Picks From the Band

Book of the Week
Kings of the EarthIn Clinch’s multilayered, pastoral second novel (after Finn), a death among three elderly, illiterate brothers living together on an upstate New York farm raises suspicions and accusations in the surrounding community. After their beloved mother, Ruth, dies, Audie, considered mentally « fragile, » is devastated, but goes on tending to the Carversville farm with his brothers Vernon and Creed. Family histories and troubles are divulged in short chapters by a cacophony of characters speaking in first person. Secrets and hidden alliances are revealed. Inspired by the Ward brothers (of the 1992 documentary My Brother’s Keeper), Clinch explores family dynamics in this quiet storm of a novel that will stun readers with its power.
Movie of the Week
The Social NetworkThe Social Network is a 2010 drama film about the founding of the social networking website Facebook and the resulting lawsuits. The film was directed by David Fincher and features an ensemble cast including Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, Justin Timberlake, Brenda Song, Armie Hammer, Max Minghella, Rashida Jones, Joseph Mazzello, and Rooney Mara. Aaron Sorkin adapted his screenplay from Ben Mezrich’s 2009 nonfiction book The Accidental Billionaires. Neither founder Mark Zuckerberg nor any other member of the Facebook team were involved with the project, although Eduardo Saverin was a consultant for Mezrich’s story. The film was released in the United States by Columbia Pictures on October 1, 2010 to critical acclaim.
Album of the Week
Mstrkrft - The Looks
Looks is the debut album by MSTRKRFT, released on July 18, 2006. All songs were written by Jesse F. Keeler and Al-P. The cover art was designed by Seripop and won the Juno award for Best CD/DVD Cover Design of the Year in 2007. In the 15-21 June 2006 edition of The Stranger, Keeler explains the origin of the album’s title: « My girlfriend and I were watching American Idol, and judge Randy critiqued this one girl as having ‘the looks’ but not the talent. So we laughed at this intangible thing ‘the looks’ that can be good or bad, and later it became [our] album title. Because if you think about it, it doesn’t mean anything, especially in terms of our album. »
Website of the Week
Avaaz.orgThe demonstrations in Egypt could end three decades of repressive rule and bring, at long last, freedom and democracy to Egypt.
The regime is attempting to starve the protest movement of two crucial sources of power: information and solidarity. But despite the internet blackout, Egyptian radios and satellite TVs can still receive broadcasts from across the border — so Avaaz will work with broadcasters whose signals reach inside Egypt to circulate the number signatures on this statement of solidarity, along with messages of support from around the world for Egypt’s people. Sign the statement of solidarity–and spread the word about this campaign!
