music blog college among other things have been keeping me hella busy. But to move onto the movie, The Squid and the Whale is one of my favorites. While Noah Baumbach is an unfavorable director in my eyes (Kicking and Screaming I actually turned off, but this and Greenberg were wonderful), this movie shows that he does know how to write a story that can blow my mind and help me connect with the characters. Such well created characters star in this. They are in depth and disgusting and beautiful just like real people. It deals with a messy divorce and the effects on two abnormal kids. I suggest it if you are a fan of Wes Anderson (Rushmore, Life Aquatic), mumblecore movies, or even just quirk humor.

Now while I do sound cynical about all of this (which I am because I wasn't that entertained) it was pretty cool. I know you remember the gore in Kill Bill and how blood exploded out of paper cuts and etc etc, well that's similar to what this movie was like. So all the action scenes were thoroughly bad ass. There was also a machine gun in a couple scenes (awesome) so if you think you can withstand the spotty storyline, give it a view.

Like always this film is awesome and I recommend it, blah blah blah, it's basically a classic and pop culture references it so much for jokes and whatnot so you should probably see it just for that reason.

I have seen many a movie, and I'm just curious as to what movies my readers are into. Suggest a movie for me to review and I'll do it! Chances are I've already seen it so it should be fine, but if I haven't I'll get on the ol Netflix and give it a watch. Reply in a comment!

If you haven't seen it, I highly suggest it. Such an awesome story. The pace is slower, but it just shows how life was back then (well how I imagine it would be). The characters are all insanely developed and it is good basic storytelling at it's best. 8.5/10

Alright well I watched the Twilight Samurai and also Homicide yesterday (both incredible movies) that I will put up reviews for later on. Twilight Samurai was long and slow and that's what made it so good in my opinion. Also Homicide was an awesome cop story about a jewish cop. Good good things. But I must go to my classes to learn musical theory and sing song singing songs. So those movies will come later today. ^_^

Anyway, if you haven't seen it I recommend it. Or really any of Paul Thomas Anderson's movies. He is easily in my top 5 favorite directors. All of his characters always have so many levels and in addition to the soundtrack selections and original scores, he creates a world of chaos and panic in a seemingly simple lifestyle.

Alright guys, blogging is awesome but I just heard of this linkbucks thing! I need you all to test it out! If everyone could click on this link and let me know if after the ad interlude thing it redirects you to my blog that would be very awesome. thanks in advance!
I thought I would take the time this morning while playing hookie from the rest of my classes to review a very entertaining and thought provoking movie, Me and You and Everyone We Know. It was written, directed and starred Miranda July who is awesome. If you haven't checked out any of her art it's really neat stuff. In the same vain as a Kimya Dawson song (simple but uplifting). While the story and characters were incredible, quirky, and beautiful, I think the soundtrack made the movie for me. I watched the movie in February and the soundtrack album is already in my top 5 most played on Last.fm. It's an awesome story of a simple life and love and beauty everywhere, definitely check it out. I hate reading plots because I start having expectations so I won't reveal any details to you.

Alright, well I've decided to make this blog to keep track of my random mumblings and thoughts and possibly I will upload media content that I've created. As for right now all I have to say is I am one stressed cookie with all this school work and lack of income. Also I have decided to try to create the most depressing piece of art one has ever set their sights on, using only my watercolor animation technique I've been perfecting over the last 2 years and lots and lots of sound. Also random videos of people and objects and lovebugs which are going crazy around in Florida right now. Alright well that's my story for now!
