Teaching is done for the semester, just finals to go. I was sad to see the back of my film class, but they were more than ready to move on to finals and summer and graduation. It’s Walpurgisnacht, so bonfires are burning — and in Finland people are probably already drinking sima for Vappu (and getting ready to fry tippaleipä). We’re off to see the Jesus of Cool. No doubt, I’ll be writing up the sold-out concert tomorrow.
The joey Zone sends along this oddity: an impressionistic film of Peer Gynt from 1941, starring a teenage Chuck Heston. Seems appropriate for this wild night.
