More Marjane

Marjane Satrapi was on Colbert last night.  It reminded me that I really need to see the movie adaptation of Persepolis.  The comics were amazing, and the clip of the movie they showed on Colbert was a scene of middle school girls breaking the law by bringing Bee Gees and ABBA singles to school to show off to their friends–different music than I would have picked as a kid, but basically the same kind of thing my friends and I did at Catholic school with our Faith No More and Dangerous Toys cassettes.  Boy, can I relate.  And I think that’s her point.

Oklahoman by birth. Angeleno by fate. I've been in half a dozen bands and own 25 cubic feet of old records. Thank God for Ikea shelves.
