The eels on Nova

I completely blanked, I meant to post that the documentary (Parallel Worlds, Parallel Lives) on Mark Oliver Everett from the band the eels and his father, which I mentioned a few months back, was playing last night on Nova on PBS. Crap.

The good news is that they are repeating it a couple of times this week, at least according to the TV Guide online. I believe it should be on Saturday night at 9 pm, so set your DVR's (or VCR's if you have one of those old fashioned things), it is definitely worth seeing.

The hour long documentary follows Everett, better known simply as E, as he heads to the college where his father formulated theories that became the basis of the idea of parallel universes. It contrasts the academic brilliance of his father against the life at home for the family, which has helped E to cathartically write some incredible albums.

Also, if you go to this website, you can download 4 songs from the eels acoustic tour completely for free, but the download is only available until next Tuesday, Oct. 28th, so download it now!
