Viva La Vida Live

Since having gotten this song stuck in my head since I saw the Apple advert for it, I’ve wanted to see it performed live–or rather recorded live.

I’ve seen the MTV VMA’s performance. In which I am not sure whether it’s the recording, the microphone, or just Plain Chris Martin whom sounds slightly squeak-ish and nervous sounding at three parts of the song. It gets better but it doesn’t offset the those noticeable squeaks of the voice.

The performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live seems to suffer the same voice blemish afore mentioned, yet it’s a bit of a more lively performance as opposed to the MTV VMAs.

The one that’s on the money is the one done in Amsterdam (oh joy!) at the Paradiso. I believe that this is due to the fact that the it’s an old church and that the album was recorded inside various churches. Thus rendering the sound akin to that on the album:

Weeds S04 E01

I really was expecting more from this first episode of the fourth season. Season 3 was rather dull and I kept waiting for it revert back to it’s originality and it’s exciting pace.

Although by the time the credits started rolling I was in shock. I could not believe that the episode was over. It was literal crap. It’s been watered down and it started in Season 3. Although the show has gotten excellent ratings those whom been with the show since the very beginning know that it’s not what it was.

If it keeps going the way it is it’s going to be nuked off my watching list

The main problem is that it’s really really drawn out and not in a good way. Too much unnecessary banter and lingering thereafter. It’s a dark comedy and I hardly laugh anymore.

Actually the “previously on Weeds” bit was more exciting and entertaining than the whole entire episode actually.

(Note: I would have put up an image but “Weeds” is being a bad show.)

(Note: I decided the post looked kind of dull without a pic–kinda like the first episode did.)

The Eye—of Vladimir Putin?

What kind of question is that? Why would you ask a question of that sort?

“What do you see when you look in the eyes of Russian President Vladimir Putin?”

…and if you answer it what does that say of you? Does it say anything?

Why are we even looking into Putin’s eyes in the first place and why does it matter?

I had to go back and actually pause it and take a snap of the frame.

It’s only up on the video for a short time.

Brad Pitt Makes Weird Sounds

I always enjoy this picture–Brad Pitt likes to look like he is going to the Bathroom and the following:

Making weird noises. The noise was so disturbing that even the lady in the back is repulsed by it (rofl) I think it may have gone something like booowwkkkahkahrahboi…

Movie Picks…(Something Like That)

I had written before that I wanted to do something about this blog

So my movie picks or something along those lines:

Terror’s Advocate:

I have been aching to see this documentary for very many reasons. The first being the studio that is bringing out this film. Those whom know me know that one of my favorite movie studios is Magnolia Pictures and that I will watch and enjoy most anything brought out by them.

Secondly I like all things related to Jason Bourne and Carlos the Jackal is a figure in all of The Bourne novels albeit in a fictional sense.

Third due to its subject matter.

Cassandra’s Dream:

It’s a Woody Allen film…Ewan Mcgregor and Colin Farrel are in it.

Persepolis:

This is just an astounding film and it’s so very intriguing. Also I like films that are based off of graphic novels.

In Bruges:

It’s the very first sequence that gets me and the lines: “‘Who’d you murder?’ ‘…you Father.’ ”

The Signal:

This is an moderately interesting film and I don’t like it’s overall feel but it’s being brought out by Magnolia Pictures…yeah, I like that studio that much.

21:

Film inspired/based off of a real life event are always thrilling to watch.

Hancock:

Alcoholic Superhero who messes up things while trying to save people…need I say more?

Paris Hilton is Out…

Something is wrong with that picture–oh, yeah she’s on Larry King Live–so that means Paris Hilton is out again.

Does this mean we’ll hear less of her?

Heh, don’t hold your breath–it means we’ll see and hear more of her…maybe.

So in spite that she’s out, she’s being judged in ways ‘unspoken’ take a look at what
CNN had to say:

Instead of Story Highlights they should have made that the story–because seriously they’re just killing themselves trying to put a spin on it–because of after you read that you’re reading the rest like, “heh, yeah right…” but you would be anyways (I hope so) but they took the fun out of it.

So they start off by stating that she’s said that, “…she has never used drugs, isn’t a big drinker, and although she feels her incarceration was unwarranted, God had a reason for putting her there…”

Okay so she or more like they, whoever they is in this–have brought the ‘god card’ into this. Now she says the incarceration was unwarranted–but says that God had a reason–so there we go that warranted her so called unwarranted incarceration–if she is going to play the ‘god card’ here then she is then alluding that god is able to allow her to go through this for a reason and therefore since god is able to allow such a thing to happen then such an event is not unwarranted…

Now I’m saying ‘god’ and not God as God of the Bible–as in the God of Genisis through Revelation because I’m not sure which god Paris is referring to–although you can assue–but assumptions can be wrong.

So the way I take it is she is blaming God for it–that God is punishing her and that this is about all God can do…uh-huh…

But you never know right, maybe–then again she wasn’t in Oz…or in Em City….

Now I’m not saying Jail is a bed full of roses because it certainly isn’t.

Heh, then I read this, “…Her imprisonment also reversed a mental disorder she said she had suffered from all her life.” … claustrophobia.

Likely–unlikely I don’t know…

Uh so yeah that was CNN but let’s get to the real stuff…

So we go to The Superficial for that:

Paris Hilton draws–but that certaintly doesn’t make her an artist:

Heh, she’s watching TV–Larry King Live and Harvey from TMZ…eh…

Oh and she’s being offered $1 Million Dollars for get this, to teach a, “…one-hour class on ‘How to Build Your Brand.'”

Now some steps were listed on The Superficial but I have some of my own…

1) Attend media events
2) Befriend people at media events
3) Attend media events with friends in Step 2 and repeat
4) Engage in promiscuous sexual behavior with friends; preferably with those friends and at the media events and record them on video
5) Leak video and sue entities which do so
6) Come to terms with entities only after it gets mainstream media attention, repeat.
7) Repeat Steps 1-4
8)Attend media events with little or no clothing as to expose genitalia and/or breasts, repeat
9) Get DUI
10) Invalidate probabtion
11) Make a scene of your sentencing
12) Hire supporters
13) Have supporters make a scene
14) Go to jail
15) Get on Larry King Live
16) Repeat

So yeah Paris Hilton is out…

Bruno Out and About

Oh what joy–Sacha Baron Cohen is back in character as Bruno shooting for the movie.

As I Watch Stuff! writes though, “….there’s no excuse not to know all of the Ali G characters by now – don’t you people get HBO?”

and even if you don’t get HBO there’s the DVDs and YouTube, seriously have these people been hiding under a rock?

Well, here’s to Cohen and his endeavour–heh wordpress’ spell check is saying I misspelled endeavour lol 😛
