Lykke Li - Sadness Is A Blessing
Stellan Skarsgård, always bringing down the iron fist. I bet he used those iron fists to give life to this impeccable specimen of human male-hood; chiseling him out of granite with just his bare hands and man-strength or whatever.
But I digress. I don’t even like blonde boys…
Cary Grant, master of drunkface.
Once I was Nancy Sinatra for Halloween and I looked good. But no one ever saw my costume because we got lost on our way to the party and wandered up and down an avenue when we were supposed to be on a street looking for a number that didn’t exist, until we had to turn around and go home because my roommate had to work in the morning. I didn’t have a pink fringe go-go dress or a psychedelic spotlight to make a rolling exit out of, but otherwise I had her down. No one will ever know.
I have had the soundtrack to Blue Hawaii on vinyl for some time now and sometimes I listen to it and imagine the wacky shenanigans Elvis must be getting into as he sings these songs. So, naturally, I gave in and decided to watch the movie only to find that my favorite song “Moonlight Swim” takes place neither during neither moonlight or swimming. Very disappointing. Also, he sings “Can’t Help Falling In Love” to his girlfriend’s grandmother…also he spanks a seventeen year old girl when she tries to fling herself into the waves because nobody loves her…so, well, yeah…
It was pretty much a documentary.
The Beatles - All Together Now
Elizabeth Taylor, 1932-2011
Frank, Dean and Bing singing about that good old 1950’s style bromance.
Stevie Nicks being absolutely punch-worthy adorable and singing an early version of “Wild Heart” backstage while getting her make-up done.
Harvey Keitel in Scorsese’s Mean Streets, getting drunk and doing it beautifully.
Diamond Rings - It’s Not My Party
Floating Hitler head on the wall of Eva Braun’s apartment…I can’t imagine anything more terrifying.
