There was another good episode of Alias on last night -- it's a show that's gotten continually better as the season progresses. I'd have to say that it's even better than The X-Files was in its heyday. I watched that show fairly regularly in its middle seasons until it got stupid. Alias manages to be cheesily entertaining while having a smart, cohesive story .

I picked up a copy of the Moulin Rouge soundtrack this weekend while out and about. It has covers and originals from various songs in the movie, and there's some really interesting montages on it, if you can ignore the vocal stylings of Ewan "Belty" MacGregor.

The final composition faculty candidate came today, and he was easily the best teacher/theorist of the three. His music didn't really do much for me -- it was difficult notey music that sometimes seemed to derive itself from math and theory rather than inspiration. I brought in Loneliness for a mock lesson, as I did with the other two candidates, and his comments seemed to be in much the same vein as the others. I wish I had a cleaner recording of that piece. It's one of those recordings that means well, but could be a lot tighter around the edges.
