Lana Del Rey Concert + Now is Good

Lana Del Rey Concert + Now is Good

This past sunday I attended the Lana Del Rey concert here in Miami. The experience was average, I was kind of disappointed. Naturally, no LDR concert is going to be out of this world with raging energy, her music is allegorical and hypnotic which I like. That was not the disappointing part, it was because of the screaming, infatuated teenage girls (and boys) screaming and shoving my friend and I…

Ben Howard

My longing to hear Ben Howard’s acoustic of One Love is profuse. So much love and warmth for this song and his music. I’ve noticed not many people know who he is, at least my friends don’t. They’re too busy being mainstreamed.  You, my readers (so many of you…) must know him. He’s new,different, and melancholically wonderful. On a…

MUD (2012)


It is a great coming of age drama, seen through Ellis’ (Tye Sheridan) point of view as he discovers that love can let you down and make you feel loss. As Ellis’ parents separate, he looks for hope in Mud’s (Matthew McConaughey) love for Juniper (Reese Witherspoon). In a way it is like he can somehow hold on to something that’s a sure thing, unlike the love between his parents that is…

Alex Clare - Too Close

Here is another British musician.

He mixes a bit of dubstep into this song. His album Lateness of the Hour was produced by Diplo and Switch, this explains the use of dub. I hope people get to hear more about him, his songs are good! Anyhow, I wanted to make a quick post before going to class, see ya!

Daughter - Youth (The Wild Youth EP)

If you don’t know Daughter. You.Are.Welcome. 

It’s a UK band; the lead singer is Elena Tonra who has just the most wonderful voice, so wonderful that this is what I wake up to in the morning (I change my alarm songs every so often). Igor Haefeli plays the guitar and that’s about it for the band members! 

The lyrics to this song are so powerful to me, as I read them I can actually feel it and I start thinking of lost lovers and the pain they have caused. The part that hits me most is this: 

And if you’re still breathing, you’re the lucky ones.
Cause most of us are heaving through corrupted lungs.
Setting fire to our insides for fun
Collecting names of the lovers that went wrong
The lovers that went wrong.

Want more? Listen to Candles, Landfill, The Woods and Home.

Sebastien Tellier - Kilometer (A-Trak Remix)

Found out about Sebastien T. just hopping from video to video on youtube and I really like it! I also noticed that his songs were used by Sofia Coppola in some of her films (Lost in Translation and Somewhere). This remix adds a bit more funk to it, the original is too slow. And the video… it speaks for it self. It is humorous to me because he is surrounded by all these girls who eat aphrodisiac food (I was disturbed with the hot dog scene though) and he pays them with checks. Checks!

The Swimming Pool (La Piscine) 1969

One problem that happened with this movie was that I saw it over a period of 3 days which pretty much sucks because I hate doing that, I like watching films in one sit in. I have not had time lately to even stop what ever I have been doing, school, work and family have taken over everything lately… pretty exhausting! 

Day 1: During the beginning of the movie I slowly came to reminisce one summer time of mine where all I did was go to the pool with my best girl friends, cook, nap, watch TV, go running and doing it all over again. You know? That lazy summer time care free feeling when all you have to worry about is putting on sunscreen so you don’t get too burned and the day is sunny and time goes slow and it is okay if you don’t do much?
That’s what the beginning of the movie brought into my mind, nice uh? Well, the story starts out just like that. It is about a couple Marianne and Jean-Paul (Romy Schneider and Alain Delon) who are vacationing in a summer house in St. Tropez (movie is in French with English subtitles) and let me tell you their hormones are pretty much raging. Marianne gets a phone call from a so called “friend” named Harry (Maurice Ronet) and invites him and his daughter Penelope (Jane Birkin) to come over and stay with them. Jean-Paul is skeptical about Harry and Marianne’s history; the movie begins to unfold…

Day 2: I was in awe of the fashion! Oh! I stopped the movie just to see what everyone was wearing. At first I was intrigued by Jane Birkin’s glasses which by the way, as her younger self in 1969 she is beautiful I didn’t recognize her at all! Lets not forget Romy Schneider’s amazing looks too (who according to my mother she had a dramatic life).

Day 3: I began the movie from the beginning. 0.o yes. I know. But only because my mom had gotten back from a trip and movies are the way we bond. Today I noticed how slow the movie is, it is 2 hours long. The camera movement showed how the actors looked at each other and caught their expressions to a former action. The climax of the movie finally comes and it wasn’t as dramatic as I hoped. I’m guessing it is because I saw the 2003 movie Swimming Pool by Francois Ozon which is very similar except the plot is much more complex and has a very ambiguous ending (Post on this movie later!) 

Over all it’s a good movie. A bit too long for me but I enjoyed it. I recommend you watch it if you are in a sort of calm mood, cuz it ain’t cray!  Au Revoir!

The Strokes
I'll Try Anything Once

I’ll Try Anything Once by The Strokes has been stuck inside my head for a week. I honestly think this song will never lose my interest.

So sweet and soothing to my ear.

It makes me feel just lovely.

From the soundtrack of Sofia Coppola’s film Somewhere

Thoughts of this movie from me coming near you sometime in 2012!

But for now just listen :)
