Have you heard the news??

The Man In The Mirror has Beat(en) It for the last time… There may not be Blood On The Dancefloor, but I Blame It On The Boogie because he was Dangerous and a bit of a Thriller, espeicially being a Stranger in Moscow… I’ve got a million of these, trust me… It just makes me want to Scream! Ok, seriously, I’ll stop there, but it is just a little bit sad that Michael Jackson is now dead. I didn’t always agree with his actions or ideals, or the way he went about living his life and doing that stuff to his body even if there are all kinds of psychological ways of looking at it. But damn, he did make some good music back in the day that I used to listen to a lot, and he will be missed by a lot of people. Especially my Mum (who actually cried when she heard the news).

Anyway, despite the title to this blog (because EVERYONE has by now, and if not, then you’ve been cryogenically frozen for a while now. Welcome to the 21st Century.) there are actually some things that I’m updating on here today. I mostly only put that because that’s pretty much been the most said thing over the last few days!

I know I always say this, but I’m definitely going to be putting up some script samples on here, once I have the time to properly sit down and play around with the features to see which way of uploading it is the best. I’ve also decided which one I want to put on here. I don’t want to say too much about it, because I want the impact of it to be something fresh and new. All I will say is that if you’re a fan of One Tree Hill, you might like the idea of it!

I was able to catch the last showing of Drag Me To Hell on Thursday. Ho-Ly-Crap, did it put the shits up me!! It was absolutely typical Sam Raimi stuff, as per Evil Dead Trilogy. He’s obviously going for the cheap scares, the jumps, the strings in the background, etc. But there’s also something very sinister at the centre of it, about being tortured and tormented for 3 solid days before going to Hell, and knowing that there’s nearly nothing that you can do about it!! The old Gypsy Lady is possibly the scariest villan in a horror yet, so Leatherface better watch himself because he’s losing out to an old woman now! There’s also, much like with the Evil Dead Trilogy, a bit of a dark humour there in places. The rediculously epic nosebleed scene had me laughing my tits off, mostly at the guy screaming “Is there any in my mouth?!”, and the seance scene with the talking goat and the demon that keeps leaping from body to body. As soon as the goat came in, I knew Sam Raimi would somehow get it to talk! It reminded me of the scene in Evil Dead 2 with all the inanimate objects in the house, and especially the Moose-head on the wall, collectively laughing at Ash. It was freaky, it was weird, but it was also pretty funny at the same time. So Sam Raimi, in my opinion, has done a pretty good job going back to his roots with Drag Me To Hell. The storyline MAYBE could have run a bit deeper, and the ending could have done with being less obvious, but I guess thats just how he decided to do it and it worked pretty well for him, and I’d like to see how he tops it if he makes another horror sometime.

In other news, I’ve been catching up with a few people that went to Download, and apparently if you weren’t there (which I wasn’t!) you missed out on something pretty spectacular! So, yes, it’s a bit of a shame that I had to miss that. NEXT year, however, will hopefully be a different story! I’ve also recently discovered a band called The Veronicas (all be it through the medium of 90210), but they have one song which seems to be coming up every so often in the background on things called Untouched, and when I first heard the music I was kinda hooked, but I had NO idea what the song was or even who the band was! Their sound on this song is pretty cool – there’s a strings base to it, which I really like, and then it gets kinda techno-y which I wasn’t sure about, but then it gets a bit heavy and hooky towards the chorus. So I had it in my head for a while, and had no idea who it was, which was very frustrating! But I hope to find out if their soon-to-be released album is all as good as that song.

Also, in related musical subjects, I’ve recently received information regarding a certain bands new album due for release in Autumn. This certain band happens to be one of my favourites as well! Yes, Paramore have officially told fans on their website that their new album will be named Brand New Eyes and will have the new material they have been performing on their recent tour with No Doubt. The cover art looks relatively minimal compared to the eye-catching cover of RIOT!, this cover having a disjointed picture of a butterfly at the cover. I’m sure it will make more sense once the album has been heard, though, but I am DEFINITELY looking forward to that now! ALSO, they have now said that long-time touring and contributing member Taylor York has now been made an OFFICIAL member of Paramore!! I’m very happy for the guy, as he’s been touring and making music with them for a while now, and he deserves to be part of the family, so congratulations to him.

Anyway, thats about it for now, not too much else to catch up on. I’ll make sure to leave a post when I’ve added some new stuff up, but it’s likely that there will be another page for it anyway, so hopefully you’ll go over and check it all out!
