Chuck came back this week. What a strong opener it was. That Josh Schwartz knows just the right music to use in his TV shows. Last year we saw Band of Horses used to a pleasing effect. In the premiere we got a taste of an equally great track from an even lesser known band.
The song in question played as Casey stalked Chuck in his home, ready to fulfill his mission. The song is called …

I don’t like to talk on the phone

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how much I dislike phone calls. I don’t mind a quick call here or there (though I prefer a text message,) but any long call that involves important decision making or conversation I dread. I wasn’t sure if it was just me, or even why I felt that way. It seems like I’m not alone as D. Keith Robinson recently discussed a similar dislike and got a resounding …

Naughty Language

This is a very NSFW video, but it’s one I also find to be quite awesome.
My favorites:

Zach Braff (sounding completely unthreatening)
Rachel Bilson (sounding adorable, even when swearing, as per usual)
Jamie Oliver (the British people don’t sound as taboo when swearing. why?)
Derren Brown (in a laundromat?)
Peter Krause (sounding awesome, as always)

The song used here is by Paul Brill. The tricky part seems to be that the song isn’t released yet. This type of thing is frustrating for people who see the commercial and would love to buy the track. I would think the artists would want the song available for purchase as soon …

“The Fall” Makes Love to your Eyes

A long time ago, there was a movie called “The Cell“. It had Jennifer Lopez before she had kids, Vince Vaughn before he started doing dick-joke comedies, and Vincent D’Onofrio before he was on Law & Order and was only known for Full Metal Jacket. It was visually very strange, even beautiful. It was directed by Tarsem Singh—who pretentiously goes by Tarsem—and was his first feature-length film. I think the plot had something to do …
