what the world is coming to

i'm not sure i will ever reach a point at which seeing the words 'arnold' and 'schwarzenegger' at the top of my official work documents will cease to cause sharp pangs of surreal shock.

i love my friends! i love my life!

bex has been doing this wonderful thing where she captures amazing moments that we hadn't even noticed were amazing. looking at her pictures is making me as happy as anything else in life right now. the shots from last night--just another thursday at the soap factory--were particularly coo-inducing. unfortunately, they're part of a huge album she's been adding to (although the whole album is fantastic), but if you click on this picture, this'll take you to the middle of last night in her photostream.

thank you bex.

"Why we have always made fun of people from Lake County”

(who WAS it that i was trying to explain this to?!?)



(reposted from again! again!. can always count on magellan for the quality music links.)

i am terribly distressed at the fact that the end of garden state, with the oh-so-irreproachable use of the frou frou song, was not mentioned. but 'tiny dancer' is at least in the ballpark of where it should be, and there are a bunch of others that got good props.

There’s nothing better for someone who’s a fan of both music and movies to sit down in a theater, watch a film, and find yourself in awe of how the director has utilized a pop song to set a scene or convey a mood. It’s easy to know that you need a romantic song for a romantic moment, but finding the right song…? That’s the hard bit, and it gets even harder as you have to provide the proper sonic backdrop for just about every key moment in the film. Bullz-Eye polled all of our movie and music writers (and then some) to get their favorite uses of pop songs in movies.

The only real criteria we set was this: The song couldn’t have been written specifically for the film or have made its debut on the film’s soundtrack. This was pretty rough on us at first, because it meant we had to say so long to Simple Minds’ “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” (“The Breakfast Club”), bid bye-bye to O.M.D.’s “If You Leave” (“Pretty in Pink”), and offer a fond farewell to Kate Bush’s “This Woman’s Work” (“She’s Having a Baby”).

Fortunately, we had a lot of great songs – and movie moments – waiting in the wings. But be advised: our descriptions contain spoilers galore.

toxic waste dumped on the ivory coast, seemingly without much attempt to hide the actions.

that's it, i guess. i'm pretty upset about it, though.
