Australia beat Japan 3-1 in their World Cup game. That's sorta excellent. I wish I enjoyed physically watching the sport. The fact that all of their points were scored in the final 5 minutes just proves my point that I wouldn't have been able to stand watching it for 2 hours+. Javier, is Uruguay in the Cup? If not, who are you cheering for? Australia plays Brazil next. Are you a Brazil supporter?
I indeed was not watching the game however as I was watching the second last episode of Six Feet Under. Next week is the very last episode ever and it's gonna be hella sad for me. You see, Six Feet Under is one of my three favourite shows EVER (I'd rank "Twin Peaks" and "Seinfeld" above it)
Remember when Go! came out many moons ago and it felt like every single song of the soundtrack was being released and becoming a hit, there was one called "Steal My Sunshine" by Len. I only just realised that that song samples one of my favourite songs EVER - "More More More (Part I)" by Andrea True Connection from 1974. I don't why I never noticed this before because I've been listening to Sunshine since 1999 and More for a few years and... I dunno. It's weird how things just suddenly come to you.
Speaking of samples - is it wrong that I still love Rihanna's "SOS". The song is probably one of the greatest examples recently of a great sample rather than a great song, but if you're gonna use a song such as "Tainted Love" as a sample you might as well milk it for all it's worth.
Y'all really need to download "Set the Fire to the Third Bar" by Snow Patrol feat. Martha Wainwright. It's truly brilliant.
In movie news, how great is this news. I love it when high profile movies cast unknowns. And I particularly like it with Hairspray because Ricki Lake was an unknown when she starred in the 1988 remake. That's one thing I keep saying about the proposed East of Eden remake. James Dean was an unknown when Elia Kazan cast him and we all know how that one turned out. So I hope when they're casting this remake (*sigh*) they also go with an unknown. It at least makes it feel like they give two hoots.
I've gotten into a little debate about Straw Dogs over at Dave Poland's Hot Blog. I mentioned it was one of the worst movies I'd ever seen and a whole bunch of people were all "you can't just say that X movie is the worst ever" or whatever. And I'm all "people say broad statements all the time" or whatever. I directed people to my blog articles because they wanted some explanation or whatever.
Lol, fine for them to like the movie but apparently i'm WRONG for disliking it. *scowl* and I won't forget it.
