Cinemas and Coffee

So Eliza and I ended up in the Alliance Francaise of New York this evening after work and I became a member on the spot. How did I never know about this place? It's actually a solution to so many of my losing-French-community fears... and did I mention they have free Cinema Tuesdays?

I poked around the CD collection in the library and found some familiar names (Tetes Raides, Dionysos, etc.) and wondered if any of you living in la Francia right now could recommend some modern French music? Leave any and all recommendations in the comments section.

Disappointment of the week so far was Starbucks' empty promise of a "Venti-surprise" today, nation-wide at noon. What could have been a fantastic event (launched by sneaky, yet clever marketing) ended up being a bust. Notably, in the form of ONE SMALL CUP OF COFFEE PER CUSTOMER. I was so bitter that I made a movie with my camera and wanted to edit it and put it on this blog; unfortunately the quality makes it skip a bit and so I don't think it's going to work out.

A new brown logo and small coffee is not a Venti-surprise, not on any level, folks. Didn't it make you mad?
