john nuckels from sub oslo and the modern art museum lives around the corner from me. tonight i saw him at the market and he said that the next selection of films in the museum's ongoing magnolia at the modern series should include soul power, the documentary of a 1974 music festival, headlined by james brown and b.b. king, that took place in kinshasa, zaire, concurrently with "the rumble in the jungle" between muhammad ali and george foreman. also under consideration for inclusion in the modern's series is it might get loud, a documentary on the electric guitar from the perspectives of the edge, jimmy page, and jack white. gotta keep an eye on the modern's website for these 'uns.
