Ever pick a song you really like, stick it on, and let it run wild through your head?

Try it sometime.

Let it remind you about the people around you, about the good times of recent, the great nights out, all the fun weekends of late, the parties and all the people you’ve come to appreciate.

woody & dov

Woody Allen’s bank manager is waking up a happy man.
As woody Allen has accepted a cool $5 million dollars settlement from American Apparel for using his image without his permission. The court case was due to start today but did Woody just cave against the clothing giant?… Who knows.

In his defence Woody said he hoped the outcome “would discourage American Apparel or anyone else from ever trying such a thing again.”

American Apparel president Dov Charney told reporters it wasn’t his decision to settle. The company’s insurance company “controlled the defense” in the case.

Here’s the link for my earlier post on the subject america v allen

Inglourious Basterds - Vanity Fair

tarantino.brad pitt.WW2 setting.nazis.eli roth.blood.basterds

Quetin’s new movie Inglourious Basterds is complete, locked in the can, and ready to be premiered this week at the prestigeous festival de cannes.
Will the ever pompous, sometimes arrogant Tarantino return to the highs of Jackie Brown and for me Kill Bill 2. I hope he hasn’t talked up another
Death Proof. He was so impressed with his own writing for that movie he even sent the script to Bob Dylan.
Tarantino said, “I just thought he’d get a kick out of the dialogue. I’ve always been a big fan of him and I know him a little bit.
I just thought he would think the wordplay –
the structure of the words in it and the different voices for the dialogue – I just thought he would appreciate it.”
It wasn’t even a good idea, a 200mph car that was the main weapon, i mean c’mon, it was poorly written with everyone in it talking like Tarantino, even the girls
Ultimately it ended up just another tarantino talk-a-thon that was just shite.
All talk and no walk.

But at least the trailer for the basterds shows real potential, brad lookin like he’s on top form again, as the 1st Lt. Aldo Raine, and Eli Roth
playing S/Sgt. Donny Donowitz with some real menacing glee.

One area I do see as a real problem is Mike Myers as Gen. Ed Fenech. God this guy is annoying.
He’s playing an english general, so that’s an american playing an englishman. Surely there are enough english comedic actors out there to choose over this
moron…No?

C’mon Quentin, please don’t dissapoint again.

vintage

People bandy around the term “vintage” these days, it’s become a something of a fashion buzzword.

To me, most of the “vintage” stuff people buy these days has absolutley no vintage qualities about them at all.
Yeah they might hark back to a different period alright, but these pieces were even back then a mass produced product.

To me “vintage” is a collectible, or something that has a design significance. You could collect vintage, whereas you could throw away
something “retro”.
I think David Silver owner of Decades, a Los Angeles store said it best, “vintage” implies quality, something valuable, whereas “retro”
has a costume connotation”.
Sure, stuff can be made to look like it belongs from a yester-year, but it’s just an imitation.

Another thing that bugs me is when someone says “this t-shirt is vintage”, for example. It’s just a t-shirt, it’s not from another era,
it’s not unique, nor was it worn by by Audrey Hepburn. Sure it might be from the 70’s, but even back then it was mass produced.
If that’s how vintage is judged then i’ve a dozen “vintage” t-shirts in my wardrobe. It was sold in one of these so-called vintage shops.
So-called because most of the stuff they sell, while might be from another period, was still mass produced back then,making it just old.

People can critisize me for this way of thinking, and I know some who do, but that’s my view on the subject.

Now I know must of ye will look at these soundtrack suggestions and baulk, but give them a chance. Some of the best musical sets are from movies – even lame movies. I’d recommend checking out Hans Zimmer, Harry Gregson-Williams and John Williams, for some of the best stuff.
