Few protest songs have made such an impact on me when it comes to protest songs that doesn’t deal with racism such as Bob Dylans “Masters of War” from 1963. He takes a real stab at the military industrial complex that President Eisenhower warned about in his famous speech in 1961. He doesn’t hold any punches, and I love his harsh tone, especially in the last verse:
My favourite place to hang out when it comes to movies is on Letterboxd, here you can find a lot of things you wanna watch, follow people with the same taste as yourself and ofcourse comment and write your own reviews. ImDb is ofcourse the biggest one, but you get more of a social community […]
I would love to be in an open field either somewhere in at an ancient native territory in the U.S or deep into the jungle of Amazonas and having this on the highest volume on the biggest speakers you can think of. Immediately when the track starts out you’re just right there and then it keeps building up and when the crescendo at the end hits, you feel euphoric … almost like an out of body experience (not that I have ever had one).
“Breathe Me” is the lead single from Sia’s third studio album Colour the Small One. It’s a sad, orchestral ballad about being in depression and needing a friend for comfort. It was introduced to me at the series endings of HBO’s amazing five season Six Feet Under. It always get me in an extreme melancholic mode, thinking about life & death, what’s the point of everything (if any), how we don’t really appreciate friends and family until it’s too late.
Most people equals skinheads with racism and neo-nazis. That’s not how it all started, but the nazis hi-jacked the concept and they where the ones making headlines in the newspapers, so today most people think all skinheads are racist scumbags. The Oppressed was flying the Anti Racist flag in the 1980’s and still do today.
I have no idea why I call this style of 1990’s techno “British Hooligan Techno”. But all I see infront of me is white British Adidas wearing working class guys on ecstasy dancing in big green fields. But the album I mainly associate this group with, Interspecies Communication is more of a spiritual journey that much like their 1998 movie takes you on a journey around the globe to people who doesn’t live like we in the west do.
This is one of my all-time favorite “pump-myself-up” tracks. It’s simply amazing in both the Mad Cobra & Robyns versions. Robyns performance on Letterman show is simply one energy boost of the ages. The lyrics here are not that much to talk about, but the entire feeling of the songs hits the right spots for me.
8/10 … I don’t know what I should think about these fucking low-life idiots. They feels like the definition of uneducated white trash, but in nicer living areas than trailers. The stupidity of these morons knows no bounderies. At the same time, I get why you want to take revenge on a bully. I gives an extra grade of “goodness” that it’s based on a true story.
A Swedish heavy metal band formed 1980 in a small village in the middle of Sweden called Djurås, Gagnef, by Lissa (Anders Lissdaniels), Torben Stenberg, Håkan Göras, Lars Törnblom and Leo (Lasse Lee)….
The first all African-American punk music band was called Pure Hell (also Death is credited with that, and the debate will continue), they where formed in 1974, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Pure Hell released their only single ‘These Boots Were Made for Walking’/’No Rules’ in 1978. An album ‘Noise Addiction’ was recorded the same year, but not released until 2005. … and they where fu**kin awesome!
8/10 … I really don’t know what to say about this that haven’t been said before. I love this movie, but then I’m a sucker for “bad” movies that wasn’t meant to be bad … or comedic. A movie where the director thought he made something great, but fails miserably.
So what’s not to like? Tombstones made out of cardboard, A Swedish wrestler who can’t act, Boom mikes showing, Toy UFO’s and much, much more goodies throghout the movie….
7/10 … There might be something wrong with me, but I totally understand his rage. Peoples selfishness, people being extremely rude, people who are cooky but can’t back it up, and when people call them on it they scream for help. Then ok, he maybe goes over the top in his revenge, but again, I understand his rage.
This kind of revenge thriller that could easily have been released 20 or 30 years ago, but then would have a less “barf” ending….
9/10 … This is what a feel-good-movie should be for me, but for someone else this might just be sad. I love the interacting between the main characters. The extreme warmth of Joe (Bobby Cannavale), the sad heart broken, low-key, yet very kind Olivia (Patricia Clarkson). The bitter on life, Fin (Peter Dinklage from Games of Thrones fame) who just wants to be left alone. The little girl, Cleo (Raven Goodwin) is also extremely charming. I love to be part of their journey from their first meetings to how they become true friends.
10/10 … I think this is probably the ultimate drama/comedy for me, and I have seen it about a million time (I don’t know what that says about me). It’s both funny, uncomfortable and sad. At its core I would say the movie is about loneliness, and how we all are alone even when we are in a relationship.
Aaaaaargh, this is heavy as sh*t! Heavy, aggressive and at the same time you just wanna melodic. You just wanna doom dance ala Candlemass Messiah Marcolin. Fantastic doom!
As a matter of fact the whole album is awesome (Read review here). Love how the video capture the aggressive sound, the furious look in singer Rikke Emilie List eyes. Just turn up the volume and feel the heaviness.
