One of the best CDs out right now is Green Day's American Idiot. This epic recording echoes the best and most enjoyable "rock opera" sensibilities of Pete Townshend and The Who as exemplified in Tommy and A Quick One While He's Away. Furthermore, the lyrics are politically resonent, the music is as brilliant as it was back in 1994 and, as we dwell here in the US on the verge of another Election Day, this album seems more like Green Day's version of the State of the Union address. Regardless of whether you are tiring of hearing the title track and Boulevard of Broken Dreams on the radio, please do give the rest of the album a try. I don't think you'll be disappointed. Check out the Allmusic.com review here.

I am in the process of pruning the site a little bit in addition to adding a few things. One thing that I have finally gotten to is the Pictures page. Not only are there convenient links to all of the picture pages on DavidLisa.com (Liz Phair, Ween, Diablo II) but I have constructed a new page devoted entirely to all of the Front Pages Images that run in random order above. More coming soon!

We're in a bit of a lull period for flicks. There is nothing coming to local theatres that I'm interested in seeing until probably The Grudge on October 22nd. I did, however, see three more great films during the last portion of September. So, for your enjoyment, there are new reviews of Shaun of the Dead, End of the Centrury: The Story of the Ramones and Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow on the movie review page. Enjoy!
