They're not bad obviously. I like it when Scandinavians (OK Iceland isn't Scandinavia - Nordic countries.) sing in their native languages or you can pick up the accent though and it actually works better for post-rock, baroque pop, and prog in some ways.



It's like everyone should do post-punk in a Russian or English accent (or language,) and German is great for industrial. Nah not really lol but you know.

Lol just remembered the time when Ministry did this (from Chicago):


This song is catchy but his accent is approaching parody lol.

Some people heard my words and thought it meant they knew me
Truth is, I don't exist, I'm just a soundtrack to your movie
Some background figure in a story that's already scripted
And what I feel's just felt for you to hear me ****ing spit it
I jump in many different heads through these words and poems
Always hoping maybe the next leap'll be my leap home

his voice is a little deeper I think? Maybe not on earlier tracks tho:


This video is a terrible example but I want to time travel to this concert. Also the part of Sky Moves Sideways here so good.

uh


that probably. I don't have good enough short term memory for what I'm doing in this post LOL.

Television presenter Caroline flack dead at 40, you think people on the TV are doing well, but they're just able to put on a good front sometimes.






And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
- Macbeth

Yes, so may famous and wealthy people you think have it all and their public persona is that they are fine, but yet can't get over their inner demons. People like Anthony Bourdain and (possibly) Keith Flint (member of the Prodigy of which I've been a big fan of), appeared to have the best of lives. When it clearly was not the case.

Robert Pattinson as Batman (I guess christened Battinson or Pattman) looks pretty good so far. The costume has some different elements including visible stitching on the cowl. The chest insignia appears to be either a weapon or, as people have theorized, it's parts of a gun. Since Batman hates guns, the only gun it could be is the gun that killed his parents. That's a pretty cool idea. Some people have noticed the similarity of the music used in the clip to a portion of the Star Wars Imperial March, so that makes me think this is not the official main theme intended for the flick.

I was watching YouTube reviews of Oyasumi Punpun and GTO the other day, these two reviewers cited them as the manga that taught them how to live life. I have not read Punpun although everyone seems to rave about it. I remember as a kid back in the day, maybe 9 or 10 years old, I used to watch the anime version of GTO religiously every afternoon after school. It was one of my favourite shows, even though at the time I didn't really understand what the story was about.

I recall this one scene where Onizuka broke into Asuza's house to look for something, and after rifling through her underwear drawer he ended up with a pair of her panties on his head. I remember seeing this scene through my parents' eyes and thinking it was so crass and "beneath me". Looking back now it just makes me kind of sad. I wish I had a teacher like Onizuka.

That was the late '90s, golden era of J-dramas, so I watched a lot of that too after school. I remember this one about a group of five or six friends in high school or college, just really tight #friendshipgoals, and at the end they were going to graduate and go their separate ways, but they promised to stay friends forever. I don't remember the name of the drama and can't even trace it now.

But at the time I was so completely absorbed by the story, their beautiful close friendship even though they each had different personalities and family backgrounds. It made me look forward to growing up and being a part of a group like that. Who would've thought that here I am, a decade into adulthood and I've never experienced anything close to that, maybe never will. If you told 10-year-old me that the road ahead was gonna be filled with disappointment, dashed hopes and expectations, I wonder how she would've reacted? Probably with disbelief and told you that you're crazy.

Quentin Tarantino said that he considers The Social Network the best movie of the last decade. Seriously? That movie was horrible. I'm not sure how you can say that a movie based on a book that was itself based on real life, with all its inherent skewing of the truth, could be a better accomplishment than a fictional movie. Plus, the movie came out in 2010 which was technically the last decade, not the decade that ends this year.

Quentin has disappeared so far up his own butt that his opinion is almost worthless. Once Upon a Time . . . in Hollywood I think might be the worst movie of the last decade that I've viewed, although it has competition from David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis.

In 1963, when Lesley Gore was just becoming a huge store [sic], an article in a newsmagazine disclosed that she lived with her parents in Tenafly, N.J. I was in high school just north of the city. A friend thought it might [be] fun to drive out to her house and say hello.

We looked up her address in the phone book and drove over the bridge. We found the house easily and knocked on the front door. A maid answered. We said we were fans and wanted to say hi to Lesley. We were told to wait and a couple of minutes later Mrs. Gore came to the door. We told her why we had come.

She invited us into the house and led us to the kitchen where she had set out milk and cookies on the table and invited us to dig in. She explained that Lesley was upstairs and would be down shortly.

Lesley appeared in the kitchen a few minutes later and joined us at the table. She was very lovely, much more so in person than in photos, sweet and charming. She asked us about where we went to school and what other music we listened to. After about 15 or 20 minutes she explained she had to get ready for an event, led us to the door, and shook our hands. She thanked us for being fans.

Apart from Lesley and her mother’s graciousness, what stands out in my memory is how easy it was to find their house and how absolutely normal they were. The mere idea of just dropping in on a singing sensation and being treated well seems like science fiction today. What a difference a half-century makes.

I love stories like that. I wonder if there are similar stories in the present day. Bill Murray comes to mind but he kind of does the opposite, lol.

...you gotta keep the goal in mind, develop tunnel vision to a certain extent. it's hard, and it's not for everyone.

Me too. Although I do understand that stars of today are concerned about the safety aspect, with cases of obsessive stalker fans and such. I haven't heard much about Bill Murray, what's his story?

Man, Richard Gere was a major hottie in the 80s. I had no idea. If I were around then I'd be all up in that.
