The November Cultural Roundup

In 1980 I started a Cultural Journal where I recorded the films I had seen, the books I read, etc ... in an old diary style blank book that I found in Chinatown because I'm ... anal, I guess, and feel the need to categorize everything incessantly. The other day I was wondering why I am still recording this information on paper (much as I love paper)? So here we are ... the inaugural post on a cultural round up of the month's activities. 

T.S. Eliot: Selected Poems by T.S. Eliot
The Captain's Death Bed by Virginia Woolf

Carlos (France, 2010) directed by Olivier Assayas, 165 minutes
