The Virgin Suicides, the directorial debut of Ms. Sophia Coppola, adapted from the book by Jeffrey Eugenides. A tragic tale, chilling really…The Virgin Suicides aged well, unlike Lost In Translation, which I thought was fan-fucking-tastic in the theater each of three times I saw it…But then when it was finally released on DVD/Video I just didn’t think it was all that great anymore. But pish posh we are not here to discuss such things, we are here to discuss The Virgin Suicides…

The soundtrack might have been better than the film (this is true for all three of her films actually) One track in particular…Are you ready for it? Ha!

Playground Love by Air this is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard, the soundtrack was released in 2000 and this song has been playing on my headphones ever since. I never get sick of it, it plays and I am lost in Gordon Tracks wispy lyrics, so this is indeed an obvious “All Time Favorite” for me. Air is actually getting ready to release a new album (Winter 2007) but until then may I present to you…

The Virgin Suicides Original Soundtrack

I am in a blah mood…Very blah.This movie was good, well done I think. Although many critics thought Baz Luhrmann’s eccentric modern setting was too much paired with the original Elizabethan dialogue (for 1996) but I think it was just right. I got more out of this movie then when I read the play or saw the 1968 version…Of course there are 52 million other versions of this classic but still.

And then there is of course the song…*sigh* Just there are no words…Seriously definitely another Radiohead song that is at the top of my all time favorite list. There are three different versions of this song, this one being the Nellee Hooper remix, which has far less guitar than the original, I think this version is a bit darker, it is fantastic. Enjoy.

Another all time favorite film of mine, Amelie, it is in my top 10. If you have seen this film you may know that Yann Tiersen is the genius behind the original score…Nothing compares, he is an amazing musician. He is actually coming out with a live rock album and DVD on November 13th, which is exciting news to me, I can’t wait.

I have decided to make this favorite film/track a weekly feature…

I didn’t have a very good day at all…Work sucked, I won’t bore you with the details…My mom said a terrible ridiculous comment to me today that really hurt, I was telling her about my car and how much all the repairs cost (because she asked) I told her (approx. $600) So she responds with, “how come brakes were…blah blah blah blah blah blah…blah” Then I told her all that was done to my car…And that’s when she said, “Well you shouldn’t have allowed it to get that bad.”


I told her BEFORE I drove for three fucking hours there and back to that retreat just to be with her that my brakes were going bad!!!!
We went back and forth but I realized my voice was beginning to raise uncontrollably so I quickly ended the conversation and hung up the phone.

I just feel so defeated…Not just with my mom, with everything.

Like Amelie I need to take some risks but I am so scared…One of these risks is approaching my boss about a raise. I am quite confident usually in my work setting, I am an extremely hard worker yet I can’t march my ass into that office and stand up for myself…

If anyone has any advice on how I should go about approaching this, I am all ears. But for now I point you in the direction of Sur Le Fil off the 2001 Amelie Soundtrack . This song has brought me to tears on more than one occasion just because it is so beautiful. Enjoy. :)
