So, it’s been a long time, holidays and all, but I’m back and with some new posts.
http://www.nachtkabarett.com/NIN – a comparison of some of Trent Reznor’s work with other influences, one of the more interesting articles compares Joel-Peter Witkin’s apparent influence of the Closer music video (click here to view said video)
And I recently just saw a great movie entitled Sunshine – it definitely was, for me, a brain rattler. It also helped me, after the movie was done, to do a little research – and it was there that I found that a lot of the science and character backstory in the movie was written outside of the film itself. So, if you’ve seen the movie, then give this a read, it has each character’s backstory written by Alex Garland, the screenwriter. BUT BE WARNED, SPOILERS OUT THE TUCKUS! So don’t read it if you haven’t seen the movie yet!!!
And on the film front, the name Diablo Cody, remember it, for, with any luck, it’s a name you’ll be hearing often in the very near future. She’s the screenwriter of the movie Juno, which was, hands down, an amazing, balls-to-wall awesome damn good flick. Probably one of, if not THE best film I’ve seen this year. And I don’t throw stuff like that around lightly, dammit. For more on Diablo Cody, check out her myspace page link above, and her book : Candy Girl: A Year in the Life of an Unlikely Stripper (which I have not read yet, but will shortly, so many unfinished books, so little time…)
