I have been playing this song a lot since seeing Sufjan. I do not even feel the track is done justice without Sufjan’s dancing skills and and the visual supplied by Deborah Johnson. This is still an amazing track and well worth the cheeky $1. Or even get it and the whole Age of Adz album for $8. Steal.
Have to admit I am a bit of a stat screw-er as I am indeed the mp3 generation yet I have never bought an mp3. It just feels so dirty, give me the cd/vinyl and some art work. I like the whole package not just the digital so I am not really a great advertisement for this but ah well.
Have a collection of terribly beautiful vinyl up for grabs. Neil Diamond, status quo, boney M, simple minds, nana mouskouri, neil sedaka, connie francis, johnny cash, helen reddy, arthur blessitt and that readers digest classic ‘that old-time religion’ 8 lp beauty! Thats just a taster, most of these are in perfect condition. I am moving and need rid. If your up in the north coast area and want these for free before they go to a charity shop. Let me know.
Headed down to see Sufjan. What a great performance. Incredible prop design mixed with gorgeous visual effects and topped off with an incredible band. He played a lot from Age of Adz and talked alot about it too explaining the influence of Royal on the album. If you are in Dublin tomorrow head on down to the olympia for an audiovisual pie of Sufjan.
May or may not be aware that I am undergoing a small project currently called, A Giant Problem. It is a documentary set on the North Antrim Coast, Northern Ireland. It is the story of a guard who works day and night to protect the causeway from any and every eventuality.
For the posters and art work I asked long term movember friend @helloiain to give me his interpretation of a Giant. This is his beautiful creation.
I will try and keep posts regarding A Giant Problem down to a minimum on here and will use the AGiantProblem tumblr mostly for updates. Feel free to follow that or @agiantproblem if you want to keep up to date on progress.
Had a look at the new TinTin posters today and am rather excited about what Jackson and Spielberg may be able to produce together. Really dislike the 3D, hope that is a mistake, like ‘The Colour Purple’ was.
Think the posters should have stuck to a more traditional TinTin style but perhaps copyright blahedy blah.
At least they have some shadows in the new ones but snowy aint looking too great, his head is the same size as his body. Think TinTin should have been left well alone but meh as if anybody cares, it will make money and that is the only point in cinema right? Money and popcorn.
