movies.metal.mornings

movies



Pink Panther - Steve Martin / Directed by Shawn Levy (avoidable)
Good Night, and Good Luck - David Straithairn / Directed by George Clooney (fabulous)
Se7en - Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, Kevin Spacey / Directed by David Fincher (must-see)
Memoirs of a Geisha - Ziyi Zhang, Michelle Yeoh / Directed by Rob Marshall (good)

music
I've been listening to a lot of alternative metal, which is actually very straight-forward 4/4 nu-metal with a tinge of noir. Still, its good music. Also some other stuff, here's a list:
  • Dark New Day - Twelve Year Silence (good alt metal)
  • 10 Years - The Autumn Effect (very boring)
  • Lacuna Coil - Karmacode (almost as boring)
  • Joe Satriani - Super Collosal (similarly boring)
  • Eric Johnson - Bloom (smooooooth)
  • Fiona Apple - Extraordinary Machine (simply brilliant)
  • Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Howl (excellent indie-style Brit rock)
  • Mattias Eklundh - The Road Less Travelled (solo guitar wizardry)
  • 36 Crazyfists - A Snow-Capped Romance (inventive hardcore)
  • Dave Navarro - Trust No One (alternative rock, not bad)
  • Helmet - Meantime (good, angry hard rock)
  • N.E.R.D. - Fly or Die (Hip-hop done right)
As you can see, a lot of therefore are therfore justified when they say, 'I liked their old stuff better.'

mornings
I need more sleep. Waking up is over-rated. I'd rather just close my eyes, and pretend to be surfing Savage Chickens, a neat comic strip made on post-it notes. Here's one of my favourites from there. Good night, and good luck.
