Kathryn Bigelow, director of The Hurt Locker, is the only woman EVER to win a Best Director Oscar. Only 4 women have ever been nominated. Women made up only 6% of Directors for the top movies of 2013. There were NO female nominees for directing, cinematography, film editing, writing (original screenplay), or music (original score) during last year’s Academy Awards.
Scott Walker again tonight.
Going through the “Scott” albums tonight. I haven’t heard these all the way through before. Just finished Scott 2. These albums are really disturbingly beautiful. Or beautifully disturbing. Whichever comes first.

I desperately hope Signum has a CD in the works of Esa-Pekka Salonen conducting Sibelius’ Kullervo…that would make my entire year. I’ve been reading things about his Kullervo from a couple years ago, and a reviewer mentioned that there were microphones present…yeah…
I saw, by the way, Salonen has a new Bluebeard coming out in a bit over a week. That ought to tide me over until Kullervo.
Polite reminder for straight people who say “who cares” when someone comes out: such gestures are addressed to lonely queer kids. not you.
