Rip It Up and Let Them Eat Cake

I've got no idea if the Sofia Coppola Marie Antoinette is going to be any good. But the trailers do make great videos for great songs--Gang of Four's "Natural's Not in It," New Order's "Ceremony" and "Age of Consent." She's got musical taste, if nothing else, not that that's a surprise after Lost in Translation's brilliant use of Roxy Music and the Jesus and Mary Chain.

And I'm particularly willing to buy our age/Antoinette's age, as we have to have a Bastille Day coming, no? Although much of the revolution isn't particularly pretty. Unlike, say, this album cover:

Which has a certain air of nobility to it, and a perfect title for too many eras, alas--Power, Corruption, and Lies.
