Alchemy and Amy Adams...

A short post today, as its a hectic one in the household. On my way home from work this afternoon, an interesting hour of Fresh Air on NPR, especially considering yesterday's post. First, the secret of life. Electricity. How very Frankensteinian.

Check out Terri Gross's interview with Ashcroft about her latest book at

In the same hour, Gross also interviewed Amy Adams, who played Giselle in a fairly smart send-up of Disney's princess films, Enchanted (a movie that all the while reinscribes the very things it makes fun of). As part of the interview, she played Adams singing "A Happy Little Working Song," which I'm sure the poor woman loved. Here she is, trying to promote her latest very serious film The Master, and she's talking about singing to rats. Ah, well. At least she's famous.


Until tomorrow. Adieu. ~Alice
