In “The Taste of Tea,” Maya Banno plays Sachiko, who is followed around by a giant version of herself.
New York Times:
A bit of patience is required to get through “The Taste of Tea,” but patience is often rewarded, and it certainly is by this droll and oddly touching film by Katsuhito Ishii. The movie is a family portrait as painted by a moderately demented Cubist: the family involved is nothing like yours, yet somehow, in its fractured way, exactly like yours…

The good stuff. (Definitely needs a sub, though.)
Ball and Buck + SOTA turntable, $998, and Ball and Buck + Blumenstein “Orca” speakers, $695 for two, 144B Newbury St., Boston, 617-262-1776, ballandbuck.com
Boston Magazine:
» When Mark Bollman decided to commission a custom sound system for his Newbury Street store, Ball and Buck, he had one very important request: that the equipment be finished in rich wood. “It goes along with that whole philosophy around vinyl music and the warm, true sound of the original composition,” Bollman explains. “It’s a natural sound, so it’s a natural finish on the product.” Working with the American audio companies SOTA and Blumenstein, Bollman dreamed up a turntable and speakers that met those specifications. «

GEOFF JOHNS SAYS DC ENTERTAINMENT’S TV AND MOVIE UNIVERSES ARE SEPARATE
By Matt D. Wilson
If you were hoping to see Arrow‘s Stephen Amell make an appearance as the emerald archer in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice or in the upcoming Justice League movie, DC Comics Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns has some bad news for you.
“We will not be integrating the film and television universes,” he said at the Television Critics Association press tour for The Flash. Seems pretty cut and dried.

July 21, 1925: Scopes Found Guilty in “Monkey Trial”
On this day in 1925, a Tennessee high school science teacher, John Thomas Scopes, was found guilty of teaching evolution, which violated Tennessee state law. The Scopes Trial, known as the “Monkey Trial,” lasted only a week, but ignited conversation and debate over whether to teach Creation or Evolution in the classroom. 
The court acquitted Scopes on a technicality but upheld the constitutionality of the state law which was eventually overturned in 1967.
