Little Miss awkward/beautiful

OMG! Notice how I got two film and one music references in the subject line? Man, I'm awesome. Sure, one of them doesn't have to do with Toni Collette, but 'tev.

Anyway. I was reading the Sunday Herald Sun tonight when I got home from work and there was a nice article about Toni Collette in it and thought I'd share it with you guys. But not only that, I also have the chance for you to listen to some free music! Yes, the publication is giving away ten copies of Collette's album Beautiful Awkward Pictures (with her band The Finish) and you can listen to a track from the album for free. The contest is open for Australians only (closes Thursday 22) but I don't see why others can't listen to the track. The contest and song download are available here. Treat yourself.

The article, "Away from the sunshine", can be found over here. She's gonna be preggers soon, so get all the Collette lovin' you can handle over the next couple of years before she succumbs to a dreaded (at least to us actressuals) case of motherhood.

There's at least one leading man she'd jump at the chance to perform alongside -- Johnny Depp.

"I really do think Depp is quite something. I'd love to work with him. I think Kate Winslet is brilliant in my own kind of age bracket," she says.

But Nicole Kidman and Cate Blanchett aren't really on her radar.

"If we're in the same room, we have a conversation. But we're not life-long mates or anything," she says.

Muriel's Wedding co-star Rachel Griffiths is.

"Muriel affected our lives so profoundly, I don't think we're going to ever not be friends," she says.

I sort of wanna be in a room with Toni and Rachel just so I can fawn over them and continuously tell them how awesome they are. I don't know who I love more. Toni or Rachel? Such hard desicions...

There's more Toni Collette loving in the recent past of Stale Popcorn by clicking here, including the video for "Beautiful Awkward Pictures", which I've decided to included in this entry too, below. Just for shits and giggles, ya know?

Oh, and btw, the song ("Look Up") is really great. Like, a lot. Majorly. I'ma have to buy that album (if I don't win a copy, of course). I just wanna keep listening to that song over and over. I'm gonna go buy it off of iTunes. Now.

I knew Toni could sing, but for some reason I'd never heard her doing it- and wow, she sounds fantastic! Thanks for linking- I hope I can get this on iTunes, though I doubt it.

Not sure if it's been released outside of Australia. It's on iTunes here, but... yeah. Not sure about elsewhere.

I finally got onto iTunes- was without my laptop while back home- and was surprised- pleasantly!- to find that the album is on there! So I'm currently enjoying it. Thanks again for pointing it out.
