Day 229: [BELATED PT 1] Blame The World by Daley

31 Jan

Hey guys!

I’m so sorry for not updating my blog in a couple days. I made a weekend trip to Portland, OR with my mother for a concert.

So, to make up for it, I’ve got three posts tonight (they’re gonna be real short, so I apologize)

First post is for British singer Daley (who was featured on the Gorillaz single “Doncamatic”). He’s really sketch looking, but his music is incredible!

This song is an acoustic version of a song that’s gonna be on his EP. The song’s called “Blame The World,” and it is fantastic.

Enjoy!

Day 95: A Single Man

23 Aug

Hello there! If this is your first time on the site, be sure to check out the about page at the top for more info on my project! Also, sign the guestbook (also located in the top)!

Tonight I watched one of my favorite movies of the year, A Single Man starring Colin Firth. While he was nominated for Best Actor at the Academy Awards for this role, he didn’t win and I am disappointed in this.

Anyways, this movie is gorgeous. The story takes place in a day in the life of Dr. George Falconer, an aging gay British man in the 1960s. 8 months previous, his lover (played by Mathew Goode) died in a car crash, and he is still recovering from the incident. The whole movie goes through his day as he tries to decide whether or not he should kill himself. Instead, he begins to realize that the little things in life come not so often, but they are worth living for.

I don’t want to say much about this film, mainly because I feel like everyone needs to see it, but I will give you the trailer and a quote from it that makes me fall in love every time I see it.

“A few times in my life I’ve had moments of absolute clarity, when for a few brief seconds the silence drowns out the noise and I can feel rather than think, and things seem so sharp and the world seems so fresh. I can never make these moments last. I cling to them, but like everything, they fade. I have lived my life on these moments. They pull me back to the present, and I realize that everything is exactly the way it was meant to be.”

As an added bonus, here are two songs from the soundtrack that I feel like I can melt to. It makes me almost cry hearing them. (for the first one make sure you listen from 0:51 on… it’s my favorite part)

Day 87: The Mighty Boosh!

15 Aug

Hello there! If this is your first time on the site, be sure to check out the about page at the top for more info on my project! Also, sign the guestbook (also located in the top)!

Today I’m short on time, so I’ll make this quick!

I just got addicted to a great show called “The Mighty Boosh” (starring Julian Barratt and Noel Fielding). It is from England, so the humor is a little odd, but the one-liners and the rest of the randomness that is the show is just fantastic.

I am done with season one, but I’m waiting to get my season 2 and season 3 dvds in the mail! Check out clips from the show right below here!! (and check out the show itself! Season 1 and 3 are available on iTunes)

Here’s one of their songs from an episode (“Tundra”, aka my favorite episode so far)
