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.
