Cassandra's Dream [Oct. 10th, 2008|11:13 am]
....a mellow drama...
Nie wieder Woody Allen - Woody, du hast deine letzte Chance vertan. Wären nicht Ewan McGregor und Collin Farrell mit von der Partie hättest du sie nicht erst bekommen! Wenigstens lecker Essen, ein wenig Jazz und nette Begleitung.

Die Kunst des negativen Denkens [Oct. 3rd, 2008|11:06 am]
....a mellow drama...

Was für ein Haufen - dachte ich mir...Bitterböser skandinavischer Humor. Musste ich mehr über den Film oder über die wunderbare Art zu Lachen meines "Banknachbarns" grinsen?
Ist im übrigen nicht zu verwechseln mit "Die Anleitung zum Unglücklichsein" ;-)
Danach Freunde sehen, Tanzen (fast), Grinsen, Reden, Schreien, Lachen....endlich mal wieder nach einer Ewigkeit.

Chairlift - Bruises (Does You Inspire You, 2008) [Sep. 30th, 2008|10:57 pm]
....a mellow drama...
[mood |genial gut]

I tried to do handstands for you
I tried to do headstands for you
Every time I fell on you yeah every time I fell
I tried to do handstands for you
But every time I fell for you
I'm permanently black and blue, permanently blue for
you

I tried to do handstands for you
I tried to do headstands for you
Every time I fell on you yeah every time I fell
I tried to do handstands but every time I fell for you
I'm permanently black and blue, permanently blue for

You ooo ...
For you ooo ...
So black and blue ooo ...
For you ooo ...

I grabbed some frozen strawberries so I could ice your bruisy knees
But frozen things they all unfreeze and now I taste like
All those frozen strawberries I used to chill your bruisy knees,
Hot July ain't good to me
I'm pink and black and blue

I got bruises on my knees for you
And grass stains on my knees for you
Got holes in my new jeans for you
Got pink and black and blue

Got bruises on my knees for you
And grass stains on my knees for you
Got holes in my new jeans for you
Got pink and black and blue for

You ooo ...
For you ooo ....
So black and blue ooo ...
For you ooo ...

Fleet Foxes - Tiger Mountain Peasant Song (Fleet Foxes, 2008) [Sep. 30th, 2008|06:01 pm]
....a mellow drama...

____________________________________
Wanderers this morning came by
Where did they go
Graceful in the morning light
To banner fair
To follow you softly
In the cold mountain air

Through the forest
Down to your grave
Where the birds wait
And the tall grasses wave
They do not
know you anymore

Dear shadow alive and well
How can the body die
You tell me everything
Anything true

In the town one morning I went
Staggering through premonitions of my death
I don't see anybody that dear to me

Dear shadow alive and well
How can the body die
You tell me everything
Anything true

Jesse
I don't know what I have done
I'm turning myself to a demon
I don't know what I have done
I'm turning myself to a demon

Perfekt zum Start in den Herbst, letztes Jahr waren es die fallenden Blätter von Element of Crime, dieses Jahr muss es nicht dramatisch sein - Leichtigkeit ist angesagt.

Tunng - Bullets (Good Arrows, 2007) [Sep. 3rd, 2008|10:09 am]
....a mellow drama...
[Current Location |b.2.23]
[mood |entspannt]

Green hills and enemies
These things they make us sentimental inside
Your words are gelignite
Or just another sentimental aside

We're catching bullets in our teeth
And though it's easy when you know how it's done
They split the secret up six ways before they gave it to us just before dawn
And now we don't remember

Our blood and guts are out
We spread our bones across the table at night
We cut our fingers off
To give ourselves those little extra insights

We're catching bullets in our teeth
And though they try hard not to say how it's done
They always do
They spill the secret out six ways
And beg for our forgiveness
Just before dawn
And now we don't remember

We're catching bullets in our teeth
It's hard to do but they're so sweet
And if they take a couple out
We try to work things out
We catching bullets with our
Heads and hearts and all the darkest parts of us
It's strange to find such light
In such endless night

So sweet to lose a friend
You leave the church and taste
The air in your lungs
Old lies and fireflies
Carve angels on your eyes
And all is undone
You whisper prayers into the dark
Up to a god in whom you've never believed
You always do
You split the secret up six ways
But it won't make it any easier to see
And now we don't remember

We're catching bullets in our teeth
Its hard to do but they're so sweet
And if they take a couple out
We try to work things out
We're catching bullets with our
Heads and hearts and all the darkest parts of us
It's strange to find such light
In such endless night
We're catching bullets in our backs
We sent the undertaker back
Into the garden in the drought
To try to work things out
We're catching bullets with the best resources that we've got
We're happy then again we're not
We shout - through the endless doubt

Tunng lag lange Zeit mit ihren "Good Arrows" unter einer dicken Staubschicht in meinem Auto - immerhin haben sie dieses Album bereits letzten Herbst - also vor einem Jahr - herausgebracht. Jetzt höre ich seit Tagen nichts anderes mehr auf der Fahrt und bin begeistert, was sich in einzelnen Lieder noch so versteckt. "Folktronic" wird die Stilrichtung genannt, der sich die einst so erfolglosen Musiker verschrieben haben - aber neben den melodiösen Gitarren und witzigen Texten sind nicht nur elektronische Elemente eingebaut, sondern auch die achso alltäglichen Geräusche wie Motorenrattern, Sirenen. Es ist wunderbar Musik so mit den alltäglichen Geräuschen zu verbinden...

Jean-Dominique Bauby - Le scaphandre et le papillon (1997) [Aug. 11th, 2008|03:05 pm]
....a mellow drama...
...heisst übersetzt "Der Tauchanzug und der Schmetterling" oder aber in Deutschland bekannter unter "Schmetterling und Taucherglocke" - ein Bildnis, das von Julian Schnabel in seinem gleichnamigen Film oft verwandt wird, um dem Zuschauer einen Eindruck davon zu vermitteln, wie sich Jean-Do wohl gefühlt hat, seitdem er nach einem Unfall am "Locked-In-Syndrom" litt. Insgesamt möchte ich nicht viel mehr über den Film sagen - außer, dass ich zum Schluss ein wenig an "mar adentro" von Amenábar denken musste - wenngleich der Vergleich hinkt.
Vielen Dank für die Lust, die ich nun wieder auf Tom-Waits-Lieder habe!
Sehenswert!

Two Gallants - Despite What You've Been Told (2007, Two Gallants) [Jul. 25th, 2008|01:16 pm]
....a mellow drama...
well i guess by the blood stain of your lips and the wander of your fingertips i should prove true to my ruthlessness and stay here but i’m just a kid of ill repute and the skin i wear’s my only suit and you you’re just a substitute for the one that i hold dear you know you could be anyone god forgive my tasteless tongue i never should have been set free i claw my eyes i skin my face beg somehow to be replaced that’s how we deal with boys like me well i guess for this world so sick with loss and those who dream despite the cost i should climb down off my rugged cross and lay with you but you know by now it's half past late and i only came here for escape you you’re just my next mistake like me to you you know you could be anyone god forgive your unborn sons i hope they don’t end up like me i drag my mind through streets of shame hate myself forgive the game that’s how we deal with boys like me but despite what you’ve been told i once had a soul left somewhere behind a former friend of mine and i hate to speak so free but you mean nothing to me so if the street lights they shine bright i’ll get home tonight i guess by the dim light in your eyes and that to you all things come as a surprise i should set the steel trap of your thighs and dive right in but to you i’m just a confused child insecure or in denial go raise your robes and hold your trial i’ll let you win you know i could be anyone god forgive what i should’ve done my thoughts enough to guilty be yes i guess i made this bed but i’ll take the sidewalk instead that’s how we deal with boys like me but despite what you’ve been told i once had a soul left somewhere behind a former friend of mine and i hate to sound so true but i mean nothing to you so if the street lights they shine bright i’ll get home tonight

Schade, dass mir dazu nicht mehr einfällt als zu sagen: das Bühnenbild und die Kostüme waren mal wieder beeindruckend...
