This blog post is brilliant. Although I don’t necessarily share his views on religion or death, the sheer honesty of the post and the succinct way in which he can recognise and capture the concept of his own mortality astounds me.
This is from the Casanova Soundtrack but I found it on The Playlist’s Soundtrack Series in their “If I Were Wes Anderson” Mix. First time I heard this I could’ve sworn it was in Rushmore or The Royal Tenenbaums.
OK, I haven’t actually written anything substantial on this Tumblr for a while, so I’m gonna head in a musical direction. (For more, check out http://betterlookalive.blogspot.com)
Last 5 albums I have listened to:
5. Today - Galaxie 500
Brilliant album. On one listening I was hooked to the dream pop/shoegaze/whatever you want to call this subgenre that is Galaxie 500. Just so cool, easy to listen to and just plain enjoyable. I recommend this to ANYONE.
4. Sunshine (Music From The Motion Picture)
See the film. The score and sound design should blow you away. And it has Underworld :)
3. Broken Beats/Weave and Wish/Table Scraps/Wonderland - Pogo
OK, so this is sort of cheating, but I’m combining these 4 EPs. This guy is from Perth, Australia and is awesome. He melds together samples form movies and creates a great ambient sound. All of his stuff is for free at Last.fm
2. Junior - Röyksopp
This is a great dance album. All the songs are catchy, they will stick in your head, trust me on this.
1. Primary Colours - The Horrors
One of the best albums I have heard in a long time. This is like a modern Joy Division sound and it is brilliant!!!! Just get it, listen to it, bask in it, do whatever you wish with it but enjoy the hell out of it!
just watched The Crow aka Brandon Lee’s last film. I’m stuck between a 7/10 and an 8. I loved the visual style, which Proyas would go on to perfect in Dark City, the plot wasn’t really there but hey, there were some cool deaths!
