Since you like the music on this blog (?), I decided to share with you my latest monthly mixtape consisting of (VARIOUS..) tunes I listen to nowadays.. 'MUSIC OF THE MONTH' kindof..
74 minutes of music, all periods, all genres, all kinds..
The point of making those was to burn 'em and have some music to listen to while driving.. since then i got an 8 Gb Zune (nice) BUT i guess i'll continue to brainstorm those each month anyway.. its somehow great to know that 'i was listening to that 2 years ago', 'i discovered that at that time' etc.. I think you should try! ;-)
Anyway I began the whole process 3 years ago so if you like it, i'd be able to post some more........
This month's all about :

After 5 (?) years of waiting and 7 of making, their SF flick is out on dvd since mid-november !
The plot ?
It's Christmastime, and the colonization of Mars is underway. However, when an oxygen generator and a gravity control pod malfunction, Major Syrtis (the Lips' Steven Drozd) and his team (including the Lips' Michael Ivins) fear the worst. Syrtis also hallucinates about the birth of a baby, and many other strange things. Meanwhile, a compassionate alien superbeing (Coyne) arrives, inspiring and helping the isolated astronauts.
Knowing the troubadours, it sounds like great fun.
Since its a supa band which'll need the bucks to make more music (and movies?), I'll post here only the FIRST FIVE TRACKS of the soundtrack -- which is great => REAL sci-fi sounds
The Flaming Lips - 01 - Once Beyond Hopelessness The Flaming Lips - 02 - The Distance Between Mars And The Earth-Part One The Flaming Lips - 03 - The Horrors Of Isolation The Celestial Dissolve, Triumphant Hallucination, Light Being Absorbed The Flaming Lips - 04 - In Excelsior Vaginalistic The Flaming Lips - 05 - Your Spaceship Comes From Within
Now for the album of the week. . 01 - Galleria Di Immagini 02 - Personale 03 - Congetture Melodiche 04 - Aspetti Musicali 05 - Breve Dialettica 06 - Punti Di Vista 07 - Vocali Sul Pentagramma 08 - Evocazioni D'Amore 09 - Dialoghi D'Amore . Attention, attention.. That's Alessandro Alessandroni, that's 1974, that's pretty rare and quite a.w.e.s.o.m.e . In this interview, when asked 'which was the most successful record or production, apart from the work with Morricone?' . Mr. Alessandroni (basically Morricone supa sidekick for those who wouldn't know..) stated : 'As far as success, none in particular, but as for personal satisfaction surely "Prisma Sonoro" on Sermi. The editor gave me total freedom, so I composed for a great orchestra with 16 violins, 4 violas, 4 cellos, it was truly fun. It isn't often that a producer leaves you free to compose whatever you want.' . Well.. What can I say ? . PUSH THE BUTTON ! . And many thx for House303 for uploading this !! (on my library blog..)
Born in 1933, Takeo Watanabe, mostly known for his 73-75 strks for girly animated series, went to Paris to study music composition circa 1967, then back to home country a few years later. He then started to work for TMS Entertainment and Toei.

Not your usual november music but just keep this one somewhere.. its good.
As requested, here's the 'Eat It Raw' compilation.
It features top notch 1968-1973 funk and grooves from some unknown asian friends. That's REALLY good so I'd recommended it to anyone interested in that sort of thing...
But I REALLY don't know more... found nothing on the web as well....
My private great little blue bird brought me this one a few months ago and then all the track titles and id3v2 tags were completely messed up (<> as you know and most of the time, japanese characters don't appear greatly in our europeean computers..) so i renamed the tracks into 'Track X' patterns..
The whole thing (36 tracks/100Mb) packs 6 tracks from 6 different sources (both 'official' LPs and bootlegs I presume) :
Sukeban Guerrilla The Spiders Movie Tracks VA - Gangland War - The World of Akira Kobayashi VA - Nikkatsu New Action - 1968 to 1971 VA - Nikkatsu New Action - Stray Cat Rock VA - Teppoudama No Bigaku - The World Of Sadao Nakajima
'Stray Cat Rock' rings a bell ... I'll have to research more...

I saw this one yesterday and consider it to be one of the greatest surprise lately ; didn't knew much about any of the cast or crew (except the fact that Mena Suvari is certainly one the young american actress 'I love to hate' the most.. was great in Six Feet Under and American Beauty. Used to play very annoying yet complex characters you would empathize with but simply can't. And Stuart Gordon's Edmond I heard about but did not see it. Well now I will...)
THE PLOT : A young woman commits a hit-and-run, then finds her fate tied to her victim.
Yeah right.. THAT is evasive.. But i don't want to spoil it anyway.
That's very much black comedy, horror flick yet deep into realism, hand-helded camera shots..
That's only 80 minutes, dense, full, great actors. Great suspens.
Then a great document about the 2000 Presidential election in the US : begins with the election on 7 November and ends with the Supreme Court ruling which stopped the Florida election recount on 12 December.
This 'HBO movie' won 3 Emmies :
1/ Outstanding Directing for a Miniseries (which went to Jay 'Austin Powers' Roach. Sydney Pollack was set to direct it but had to be excused because of his death)
2 / Outstanding 'Made for Television' Movie
3 / Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing for a Movie.
And deserved those !
Some criticized the movie for its mixture of fact with fiction but eh well.. That's just a point of view on some facts and Jay Roach, well aware of that, stated in response that the film, "wasn't 100 percent accurate, but it was very true to what went on. . . . That's what dramatizations do : stitch together the big ideas with, sometimes, constructs that have to stand for a larger truth."
Plain and honest.
And that's an horror show really.. Thinking that America is the leader of worldwide economy (and finance .. thanks a bunch fellows..) and that being a fact, that its leader election could change the face of the world for decades to come..
HORROR when you know that this election (in Florida anyway..) was about knowing if they should recount only real holes in the bulletins and/or pinpricks too.. (Old people - when in your voting booth, please press harder ! -).. Should they consider a medium-pin-push on the paper a 'real intent to vote for someone' ?! Or not ?! when Bush's victory in Florida was from about 1,800 votes (beofre recount), out of a total of over 6,000,000, putting those old f*** manual voting machines is HORROR.. And not knowing for a fact WHO WON is real horror too..
No need to cut throats to make horror.. (2008 Palme d'Or 'Entre Les Murs' (i saw 5 days ago) is much much much horrific by the way. It got THE PALME D'OR, it has to, c'mon)
It features a bunch of great actors (Kevin Spacey, Tom Wilkinson, John Hurt), nice directing & editing (good rhythm) and provides some real enlightenment about this situation, much precise as the europeean medias could have reported about it at the time.. You won't get closer to THE truch (this show isn't a documentary.. well, that's A SHOW basically..) but 'll certainly get closer to some kind of truth that makes sense.
And it's rather funny.. When republican Laura 'Katherine Harris' Dern (who's basically in charge of the election legitimacy in the state of Florida), in the eye of the hurricane, says ingenuously : 10 years ago, I was teaching the chicken dance to seniors, and now I've been thrust into a political tempest of historical dimensions..
Now for some good thrills. From some characters you care about.
" 2 hit men cool-off away from the UK in Bruges after awry job in London : Ken (Brendan Gleeson, awesome) the old hand, enjoys and embraces the medieval feel of the belgian city, with a fatherly attitude toward Ray (Colin Farrell, usually not a fan, but wery good too in it), young, bored, confused about the absurdity of the whole she-bang "
And then some happens..
This movie is currently in the TOP 250 on imdb (#241..) , between 'La Dolce Vita' and 'Rocky'..
