did i miss 'Kennedy'? well, i don't know if they hide their super DJ skills last night, but the after party reminded me of that time when Gareth Pugh was in town. but hey, hey. it also reminded me of hip hop parties back when i was still in high-school.
i just watched another novel-based movie, Paranoid Park. the movie's about a skateboarder named Alex who accidentally smacked a security's head which made that guy fell on another rail-track with an on-coming train that went over him and split him into two. it was a gruesome scene that i didn't expect from that movie because the security guy was actually still moving when both of his legs weren't attached anymore. he was just an old guy doing his job! (okay. and it was just a movie, so, chill). the only part that i like about the movie is the cinematography, especially when they were skating with that soothing background music. kind of sent me the nostalgic feeling.
so after i was done with the movie i Google-d up if they have the soundtrack for the movie and found out they only released it in France. but, i got a list of songs and artists that were involved with the movie and that's how i fell in love with Menomena! this three-piece band's from Portland, Oregon, U.S. and the fact that they named the band because "the way it rolls off the tongue, sexually, or something" is pretty funny and cute enough. the first song that i listened to, repeatedly (even currently, as i'm typing this) is Wet and Rusting. i'm not really good at describing but they remind me of The Shins + Portishead. check them out!
hey, have you guys heard of 'Where The Wild Things Are'? i've never heard of it until a friend of mine forwarded me the trailer of this movie some weeks ago. being the childish me, i fell in love instantly. Obama actually read that book to a whole crowd in the U.S., adding that it was his favourite book when he was a kid. the book was originally written and illustrated by Maurice Sendak. from the synopsis of the book and the movie that i read on the internet, it's not exactly the same.
the book's about Max acting mischievous in a wolf playsuit which made his mom sent him to bed without supper and it was in his room that he found the wild jungle growing out of his imagination. the movie version though, it was about Max who felt abandoned by his mother when her new boyfriend came for dinner.
i found on the internet, people are already making Max's costume for their kids. super cute! and if you think you're too grown-up for Max's wolf playsuit, check these out:
