Here is a Truth or Consequences, N.M. mini-mix because I really like that movie and also reasons. It's meant to cover the whole movie more or less but it may have a tiiiiiny bit of a character bias. Six songs plus one super-secret bonus track!

Bullets Will Fly front cover

gimme the fucking quarter, CurtisCollapse )

In other news, um…

…yeah. I'm in love.

You have always been my inspiration

So like since it's Martha Plimpton's birthday, it totally seems like a good day to donate to A is For. If you're, y'know, into that.
Current Music: Martha Plimpton - Thunder Road

I just saw a trailer for the next Hobbit movie…and it had the Elves in it…and so help me, bearing in mind of course that this is only a trailer and we all know trailers lie—keeping all that in mind, so help me if the actual movie even so much as briefly contemplates hinting at any kind of romantic attachment or interest between Legolas and that…that character Evangeline Lilly is apparently playing, I will BURN DOWN THE WORLD.


Just sayin'.

Gacela of the Dark Death
by Federico García Lorca
translated by Robert Bly

I want to sleep the sleep of the apples,
I want to get far away from the busyness of the cemeteries.
I want to sleep the sleep of that child
who longed to cut his heart open far out at sea.

I don't want them to tell me again how the corpse keeps all its blood,
how the decaying mouth goes on begging for water.
I'd rather not hear about the torture sessions the grass arranges for
nor about how the moon does all its work before dawn
with its snakelike nose.

I want to sleep for half a second,
a second, a minute, a century,
but I want everyone to know that I am still alive,
that I have a golden manger inside my lips,
that I am the little friend of the west wind,
that I am the elephantine shadow of my own tears.

When it's dawn just throw some sort of cloth over me
because I know dawn will toss fistfuls of ants at me,
and pour a little hard water over my shoes
so that the scorpion claws of the dawn will slip off.

Because I want to sleep the sleep of the apples,
and learn a mournful song that will clean all earth away from me,
because I want to live with that shadowy child
who longed to cut his heart open far out at sea.

Today on things that make you go"…":

A review of The Lords Of Salem that claimed Sheri Moon Zombie is a former "porn actress". No…no, she…she really isn't. I mean don't get me wrong, the thought alone gives me the vapors, but it's not factually true. (Most disturbingly, the review—which I saw online and now cannot find—claimed she did porn before she met/married Rob. They met in 1989. Sheri was nineteen. Haha eek.)

I dunno why this is weirding me out so much, it's just…the reviewer couldn't spend five minutes Googling her to make sure he wasn't getting something GLARINGLY WRONG? Like, I went to Wikipedia, which gave me a link to this interview, in which Sheri specifically says "I was never a stripper." (Obviously strippers and pornstars are not the same, but in this particular case it's kind of tomato/tomahto.) I found that in two clicks! Not difficult!

Gah. *shakes head, wanders off muttering*

So I watched the entire first series of Scott & Bailey in a day, was slightly underwhelmed, realized that Rachel-the-genius-detective spent TWO YEARS with Nick without apparently ever once becoming suspicious that something about him might be a little MARRIED, and when I was done facepalming through my fucking forehead, I made this.

tracklisting, download, and super mega spoilery rambling unsympathetic plot summarizing under the cutCollapse )

Yeah. There's a lot more to the show than what I'm bitching about here, and honestly it's worth a watch. I was just disappointed, because, hey, lady-driven cop drama featuring Rupert Graves! That should automatically be AWESOME, but somehow they managed to make it kinda meh. Maybe it gets better in series two, I haven't actually watched all of that yet but from what I've heard about it…eh. I hate when I really want to like something and I just don't. But making mixes for super fucked-up relationships is fun, at least.
