I must apologize for the lack of action here the last few days, I have been trying to catch up and it is craziness. Plus I am in the midst of migrating to WordPress on my own domain and I think I mentioned before I am not WP’s biggest fan…More on that later.
So just to let you know there is no shortage of new music, quite the contrary really, which is why I am all antsy to dive right in…But first things first, I have an interview tomorrow and I am really excited about it! A community newspaper is looking for a Production Artist so think good thoughts please around 11:00AM PST. :) After that I have a bunch of new music, NY tales and interview updates for you.Tonight I thought we could enjoy the music of the Dropkick Murphys from one of the best films of 2006, The Departed. You may remember Pip’s 2006 Top 10
I really wasn’t expecting to like this film as much as I did and still do. It blew me away when I first saw it, Leonardo DiCaprio is usually always wonderful (except for that one flick, which will remain nameless) but I think he quickly learned he didn’t want to go down the Celion Dion loving chick flick road. Mark Wahlberg really surprised me the most, I mean this is not the first time this Ex-New Kid surprised me but I really enjoyed his performance in this film. Not to mention the rest of the cast! The chemistry was right on, and Martin Scorsese is definitely an All Time Favorite director and this film, which took home 4 Academy Awards including Best Motion Picture is most certainly an All Time Favorite of mine.

    im actually a long time dropkick fan. they were a highlight for me on the 2003 warped tour, which is unfortunately the only time ive gotten to see them live.

    I hope the interview went well! And if you ever figure out the WordPress thing let me know because I have been wanting to do the same thing myself but WP scares me away everytime I start to consider it…

    Hope the interview went well. I’m eager to hear the deets.

    Another crime movie! On this one, we diverge. I wasn’t so crazy about the movie. I thought many of the parts were typecast (Martin Sheen is a father figure! di Caprio is brooding!) and Nicholson’s interpretation of his character was too bizarre and idiosynchratic.

    I much preferred The Lookout. Seen it yet?

    Thank you guys, the interview did indeed go well.

    And Mentok…I suppose I can’t win them all. I was actually hesitant to add this one to the list because it is so brand spanking new but with the Dropkick Murphys starting it all off I had to show my recognition. ;-)
    However, I have not seen The Lookout but I am intrigued to say the least and must add it to the queue. I will let you know what I think.
