Just a quick bit about various art / media things i've seen and heard recently. These are the things I have been wasting my time on, rather than doing any revision. Dammit, I really need to do some revision in the next 2 weeks. Anyway, I bought a few CDs the other day, the first in ages. They were, in no particular order, Blade II OST, the first Garbage album, and a dance mix album by Anne Savage called "Music for a Harder Generation." (The links take you to, which I've found to be the best CD and DVD website, if you live in the UK.) Two were in the sale at Virgin Megastores, the other was just one I saw and fancied. Impulse buys rule! I've been surprised at how good the Anne Savage CD is, and it's got me back into dance music in a big way. Can't believe that's the first dance compilation album I've bought in nearly a year. I used to buy one pretty much every other week! Anyway, go buy those abums, they're wicked.

Film-wise, I've seen far too many recently. To name but a few (links are to the IMDB), Battle Royale (Apparently a sequel is in the works. Yay!), Cube, Cube 2:Hypercube, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, One Night At McCool's and Trainspotting. Of these, I'd only seen Trainspotting and Cube before, but I've enjoyed all of them. Greek Wedding was probably the worst, it's not really my kind of film, but it has its moments. Cube2 was a little bit of a letdown as well, especially considering just how unique and amazingly brilliant the first one was. But sequels never live up to the first, do they? Actually, Godfather II is apparently the only one that bucks that trend, so I'm looking forward to catching that at some point, because the first was awe-inspiring. Battle Royale is a new entry into my Top 5 films of all time, a list which I just made up. It currently stands at:
  1. American Beauty
  2. Battle Royale
  3. Cube
  4. There's Something About Mary
  5. Godfather or The Matrix or Kingpin or Trainspotting or something else which I've forgotten. Damn, I'm indecisive.

Anyways, that'll do for now.

Actually, one thing more. Going by the Top 250 Films list at IMDB, I've seen just 49 of the top 250 films ever. Still, 1 in 5 isn't that bad a ratio. And some of them are French films, which doesn't help me, because I don't speak a word of that language. Actually, i've seen 26 of the top 100, which at 1 in 4 is a much better ratio! Time to do some serious movie-watching over the summer, methinks.
