On Boost This Week

This week's stuff on Boost (see the bottom of that page if you don't know what that is).

Boost Music:

This week's band is the Calgary 8 piece? Sometimes 10 piece I guess...Woodpigeon. They have a new album out this week "Treasury Library Canada." The video I'm posting is from an older album called Songbook the video is for "Home as a Romanticized Concept Where Everyone Loves You Always and Forever"

Boost Film and Television:

This week's film nurse.fighter.boy is "an urban love story about the soul of a mother, the heart of a fighter and the faith of a child.

Jude is a single mother who descends from a long line of Jamaican caregivers. SILENCE is a past his prime boxer who fights illegally to survive. CIEL is a boy who delves into music, conjuring dreams for his mother. During the last week of summer, a late-night brawl finds the fighter in the nurse`s care, causing their three fates to be forever entwined."

Still in their early days, this week on Boost Literature I sent up Librivox - the Montreal based organization that has volunteers from around the world read books in the public domain and then compiles them into free audio books on Boost: Canadian Art I gave a shout out to with it's links and galleries galore.
