Day 281: We Are Hunted

23 Mar

Hey everyone!

So I am completely addicted to We Are Hunted. It’s a music website that allows you to build your own playlist based on the newest bands (and some of your favorites), that you can share with others… or just listen to!

I stumbled upon this website the other night, and despite a few hiccups and inconsistencies (many of the songs are not actually playable, despite being listed as so… also some of the songs are definitely NOT by the artists they are labeled under) it’s such an awesome sight to browse!

My favorite secition is the Emerging Charts, which focus on all types of music but brings out the best music from some of the coolest indie bands out there right now! With 100 songs right off the bat to pick, and hundreds more that are searchable, it’s easy to get lost in your own playlist!

Check out the site now! And favorite my playlist!

Here’s a song that I heard on the site that I love (AND is off the new Strokes album that came out yesterday!):

Day 266: Under Cover Of Darkness by The Strokes

7 Mar

So I’m kind of lame and JUST heard the new Strokes song “Under Cover Of Darkness”, but it’s so good! It’s fast paced and playful, with a great beat and some awesome vocals.

Short post for tonight, but for those of you who haven’t heard the new song enjoy!

Successfully fulfilling my Strokes meter and my love for Julian Casablancas… but is he separating himself too much from the band? I hope not…

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)
