Steven Spielberg to re-make "Mary Poppins"?!

The Independent has the scoop.

Time will tell if it’s a… um… quality scoop.

Personally, I doubt anybody could top Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke. But hey, just to see Spielberg try something like this, I’m all for it!

    Sufjan did not remaster Birds of My Neighborhood. That was only a rumor.

    whoa, I heard that news about tIM/Sufjan a few weeks ago on the paste podcast, and then they said that it wasn’t going to happen. glad to hear it’s still going through…

    “Birds” is such a beautiful record, not really sure what remastering will do to improve it, but we’ll see! :)
