Throwback Thursday: The pool scene with the Strokes song from Sofia Coppola’s “Somewhere”

Can you believe this movie is already half a decade old?

The other day I watched it again because I was really hungover (the night after Mission gadfly Wesley Frazee’s epic birthday party) and it was on Netflix and the thumbnail looked relaxing and I couldn’t really remember many of the details of the story.

I saw it originally in one of the little rooms at the Roxie back in ’10 with my pal Kristina. At the end we agreed that we both totally thought this sequence was the end of the movie (even though there were actually like 40 mins left):

How good is that song???

(We also both agreed the movie made us want a Corona, and that was true of my second viewing as well.)

UPDATE: I also just remembered that on that same evening I gave Kristina a hard sell about coming to work with me on this blog, and she declined politely, saying that she wouldn’t want her name associated with some of the racier stuff we’ve posted. I understood.

P.S. Anybody wanna come write for this blog?

P.P.S. Go see something at the Roxie!

  1. Ah well, too bad I’m not local anymore — I’d be proud to have my name associated with some of the racier stuff you’ve posted. Plus, I’m single again!

  2. Hah! Good times, fair movie.

    Kristina-of-the-past was really conscious of the exigencies of a possible political career, eh?
