Not much blogging going on here...school holidays, dogwalking, filmwatching...not much writing of anything really. On films, I watched 'Away we go' last night - a recentish Sam Mendes movie with script by Dave Eggers (I've read a lot of his stuff this year) and Vendela Vida - and I did wonder 'how many more films are going to be made with this kind of super-sensitive indie-folk-boy soundtrack? The music was...nice...but it did seem very predictable...almost painfully so (though it's quite a cute and even endearing movie in some ways...I liked it more and more as it went on).
Here though is a song from one of my favourite soundtracks ('Magnolia' 1999). It's not a favourite film at all (maybe I should watch it again...haven't seen it for years) but I do remember loving some of the soundtrack and then going to hunt down the CD. The music is almost all by Aimee Mann - see below:
Might make it onto the Poetry Bus at the weekend...can't promise anything new though!
A Magical Experience.
