NEW TRON LEGACY TRAILER! Now with more gorgeous scenes of the grid!
Olivia Wilde is such a dream girl in this movie.
Speaking of hotness, Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner (Kevin Flynn and Alan Bradley in le film) matured into some fine ass old men.
What about Garrett Hedlund, the hero of our film, Sam Flynn? well he’s a good looking guy but I don’t like his head in this film, I prefer the way he looks in that upcoming lame country singing Gwenyth Paltrow movie he’s in.
You know what’s not hot at all? CG Jeff Bridges, CREEPY. Clu 2.0 is what will probably haunt our dreams after we see this movie.
This video for Darkstar's “Gold” premiered today on Stereogum. It’s a dreamy tune and we can’t wait to listen to the upcoming album. Cheep likes when the flecks of face fly out, I am loving the brain stuff.
We’d like to take a second to wish a very happy birthday to one the most talented, effortlessly elegant and beautiful souls in Hollywood right now, Mademoiselle Marion Cotillard! Stay awesome and keep those soul-wrenching Oscar-worthy performances coming <3
Menuck’s other project, A Silver Mt. Zion is essentially Godspeed with less members and singing.
If you think his instrumental compositions get you on the verge of misty eyed-ness, just add his lyrics in an off key folky dog-like wail and you’ve got some straight-up tearjerkers.
His nontraditional voice is perfect for his bittersweet tunes. It personifies the sadness, agony and, yet again, the hope for the best in the worst of times. The song, “God Bless Our Dead Marines” is my favorite example.
The song “Built then Burnt (Hurrah! Hurrah!)” is not sung by Efrim but the lyrics are undeniably his and all hyperbole aside, every time I hear or read these words I cry like babe.
Dear brothers and sisters dear enemies and friends,
Why are we all so alone here All we need is a little more hope, a little more joy All we need is a little more light, a little less weight, a little more freedom. If we were an army, and if we believed that we were an army And we believed that everyone was scared like little lost children in their grown up clothes and poses So we ended up alone here floating through long wasted days, or great tribulations. While everything felt wrong Good words, strong words, words that could’ve moved mountains Words that no one ever said We were all waiting to hear those words and no one ever said them And the tactics never hatched And the plans were never mapped And we all learned not to believe And strange lonesome monsters loafed through the hills wondering why And it is best to never ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever wonder why So tangle - oh tangle us up in bright red ribbons! Let’s have a parade It’s been so long since we had a parade, so let’s have a parade! Let’s invite all our friends And all our friends’ friends! Let’s promenade down the boulevards with terrific pride and light in our eyes Twelve feet tall and staggering Sick with joy with the angels there and light in our eyes Brothers and sisters, hope still waits in the wings like a bitter spinster Impatient, lonely and shivering, waiting to build her glorious fires It’s because of our plans man; our beautiful ridiculous plans Let’s launch them like careening jetplanes Let’s crash all our planes in the river Let’s build strange and radiant machines at this jericho waiting to fall
Canadian musician/writer/all-around awesome artist Efrim Menuck writes some of the most sad and apocalyptic yet hopeful lyrics I have ever encountered. One of the first experiences I had listening to his writing was through the heavy, aged voice of actor Lee Marvin reciting the introduction to Godspeed You! Black Emperor’s “Dead Flag Blues.”
