Day 129: The Science of Sleep

27 Sep

Hey guys, 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)!

I was thinking about a really good movie today called The Science Of Sleep (2006), starring the BEAUTIFUL Gael García Bernal and the LOVELY Charlotte Gainsbourg.

Right before the movie came out in theaters, I watched the preview religiously for two months. And by religiously, I mean that I was obsessed. But there was something intriguing about the movie that I couldn’t figure out.

The plot is pretty complex: a man named Stéphane (Gael García Bernal) confuses his dreams with reality constantly, and as his father dies, he comes to the realization that his life has to start. He moves back to Paris (where his mother lives) to work for a calendar company but doesn’t fit in with its staff. Really, he doesn’t fit in with anyone…. except for his strange but sweet neighbor Stéphanie, who likes to see the world in a different way.

The film is strange and switches back and forth between reality and dream-sequences. But because of its strangeness, it is quite appealing and sweet.

But the preview makes me warm on the insides:

I highly urge everyone to check out this movie. Seriously.

(as an added bonus, I included the full length Death Cab For Cutie song that is featured in this trailer… It’s called “Your Heart Is An Empty Room”

the other two songs are called “After Hours” by The Velvet Underground and “Fear Of Sleep” by The Strokes)

Day 16: Record Tripping

5 Jun

Hello there! If this is your first time on the site, be sure to check out the about page in the top right hand corner for more information about my project.

I remembered to update today! HOORAY!!

Anyways, today’s been pretty good, but I’m sans a roommate now. Hope you have a fantastic summer, Olivia (and thanks for being a good roommate!)

Today, I bring you a really gorgeous game called “Record Tripping,” which is like a DJ-based arcade game (with pretty graphics and fantastic music!). While the instructions tell you what to do, the basis is to scratch a record of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland” to complete certain games.

The songs featured in the game are as follows
Wheelbarrow: “Tomorrow Comes Today” by Gorillaz
Safe: “Cellphone’s Dead” by Beck
Seeds: “Brothers On A Hotel Bed” by Death Cab For Cutie
Train: “El Mañana” by Gorillaz
Toys: “I Turn My Camera On” by Spoon

Such a pretty game!!

Leave me a comment below and tell me what your favorite mellow song is!
