The Full "Eclipse" Sountrack listing/

Found this on my internet travels, and decided to post the listing. After all, music builds up the atmosphere and emoitional connection in every film, and the songs soon become thw soundtracks to our lives, and other pretencious, douce-monkey esque stuff like that.

Here we go:

1. Metric – “Eclipse (All Yours)”
2. Muse – “Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever)”
3. The Bravery – “Ours”
4. Florence + The Machine – “Heavy In Your Arms”
5. Sia – “My Love”
6. Fanfarlo – “Atlas”
7. The Black Keys – “Chop And Change”
8. The Dead Weather – “Rolling In On A Burning Tire”
9. Beck & Bat For Lashes – “Let’s Get Lost”
10. Vampire Weekend – “Jonathan Low”
11. Unkle– “With You In My Head (ft. The Black Angels)”
12. Eastern Conference Champions – “A Million Miles An Hour”
13. Band Of Horses – “Life On Earth”
14. Cee Lo Green – “What Part Of Forever”
15. Howard Shore - “Jacob’s Theme”

It's the typical indie-fied soumdtracks I've come to know, and love, from the Twilight saga. Muse in on there, no shocker. What did shock me is that Beck duets with Bat for Lashes? Maybe I've got it wrong somehow.

anyway, I'm gonna be buying the soudtrack regardless of the films worth, because You have to admit, it does have a certain callibre of songs that can make the musical tastebuds water.

anyhoo, ding dong walla walla bing bong, I'm gone.

I'm pretty happy with mmost of these. C'mon Bill Murray. (I'm a Zombieland Enthusiast, and I am a little disappointed Emma Stone didn't receive any nominations).
Logan Lerman picks up two nods for his role in "Percy Jackson", which I think are well deserved, because he really did encompass the character and he can hold a screen. I see bright things in his future.

*Cough* Spider-Man 4 Reboot. He's rumoured to be in talks to play Peter Parker *Cough cough*

anyway, If you have a thought, comment, or complaint, soun-off below. God knows I won't be voicing an opinions anywhere but the intenet for a while. *sighs*

Hunger Games: District 12 cast

Oka, this is my attempt at making a Hunger Games casting video. It was finished in finve minutes, as you can tell, while waiting in the library, but you get the gist.

Most have scenes from TV shows and films, but I'm too technoloogically challenged to achieve that.

Oh well, That's a snippet of Youtube casting, check it out.

Yeasayer - Madder Red

Listen and Love!

I'm having a little bit of writer's block --thank you Leaving Cert,-- so I thought I would amuse myself by posting something avout my slightly new, slightly weird obsession.

Drumroll please:

It's Youtube Casting!

If, like me, You are a youtube addict, You've probably noticed these fanvids --ooh,there's some frequently used, but pretty uncool internet lingo for you-- for your favourite books, tv shows or films that have yet to be cast.

Par Exemple, I've done a little bit of reaserch -- (also known as dossing)-- on the internets, and found a few that are not only pretty decent production value, but are actually credited by the authors of the series' themselves!

It's just cool to find cast lists, because sometimes they come true. I've seen several that were pretty much bang on the money in someway or another. They introduce you to new up and coming actors and actresses that may be flying below the radar, like Molly Quinn, who I discovered is my perfect Clary for TMI, and also discovered a little show called Catle on the way. That's what you call sa-weet! As in so good, you get two syllables for the price of one.

and they tend to have pretty decent soundtracks to boot.

so if your ever bored, or just in the mood to sit back and numb your brain, give 'em a shot. You never know, you might like them!

By the way, Balls against the Wall, the Kick-Ass sequel, is green-lighted and due to start filming next year for a 2012 release.

Boo-- and I'm just gonna say it-- Yah!

3-D or not 3-D? Who knows?

I'm wrecked, so what better time than to voice some opinion or other. It always sounds a lot more insane that way, which is just so much more fun!


I have a new found enemy; 3-D.
Shock and/or horror!

It's great in theory; you take a film and make it so visually dynamic that the audience can't take their eyes off the screen, therefore lining your pockets with money when the hypntoised compatriots come again and again.
That's all well and good.

But what happens when the DVD comes out?

The thing about 3-D is that yes, it's an experience; but it's also like a bar of chocolate. You taste it, and it's the best thing ever. But then you see it everywhere, taunting you, calling to you like a fog horn, and you give in to temptation, but it never seems to meet your expectations, and you can get a headache afterwords.

Okay, maybe that's not an appropriate analogy, because, honestly, who doesn't love chocolate? I suppose I'm thinking in economic terms, and the Law of diminishing marginal utility, where as a consumer consumes an extra unit of a good, eventually a stage will be reached where utility or benifit will begin to decline......

Wow, I actually was paying attention.

anyway, when you watch a DVD, and the film was released in 3-D, you can actually see where they tried to insert it post op, and to be honest, it's totally distracting.
And isn't the point of film to distract you with the story and envelop you into the world, not distract you with flim-flams, doo-dads and zip-zorps!

Who knows.

what I do know is that James Cameron is an egomaniacal idiot, and I have a pair of size six stilletto waiting in my wardrobe that wants to give him a piece of their mind.

That is all.
