Still living up the success of ‘The Reminder’ Feist is now back with a 15 minute mini movie titled ‘The Water’. The film was written by Broken Social Scene’s Kevin Drew and stars David Fox, Cillian Murphy, and Miss Leslie of course. Drew had interviewed Cillian Murphy for Under the Radar and apparently the two have been friends ever since. Leslie is also hinting that she would like to do a bit of acting herself (in movies), but who knows if it will actually happen. Oddly enough, its also not Drew’s first directoral effort.

I guess its the Holidays that have my head in a fog, but somehow there were a few Christmas songs that I forgot to add to the list this weekend. One of them being a current favorite, ‘Seasons Greetings,’ by Robbers on High Street.
Speaking of Robbers on High Street, we here at Modern Mystery have some Holiday surprises up our sleeves for the next couple of weeks. Not to give anything away, but it includes bands such as Robbers on High Street, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, Phantom Planet, Sloan, Miniature Tigers, Of Montreal, and more…….
Its pretty awesome if I may say so myself, and you will just have to wait and see what some of these bands had to share with us.

* The Hives and Cyndi Lauper doing a duet? I know. Its just as weird as it sounds. They seem like a pretty unlikely duo. Ironically for Christmas when I was about 4, I had gotten my first cassette tape. It was of Cyndi Lauper’s ‘True Colors’ album. I still have it. I had to be the most hip kid in Kindergarten.
