The warmth outside the window this week feels eerie. The soundtrack for The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford is so lovely it changes your brain a little. VN's "Perfection" and "The Vane Sisters" get better with each reading. Live Free or Die Hard is modestly entertaining but an insult to the aesthetic of the Die Hard series. This year's Best New Voices contributors, who just read at KGB, are very good, particularly Jedidiah Berry and Oriane Delfosse. Day job=numbness. Cold is good, and riding the subway on cold days can be pleasant.
