At A Loss For Words

I can't believe the 10 Provinces series is over. What am I supposed to write about now? First, I found inspiration over at Mocking Music, who posted a review of a band called Hot One, including Emm Gryner on bass. I've been an Emm Gryner fan for years and I thought maybe this would be a great opportunity to do a feature. Once again, Mocking Music has all the angles covered. See here. Not only does the article offer a nice retrospective, but a complete live show comes with it.

While I try to figure out what I should do next, check out these soundtrack tunes. Each one was selected for having appeared during a memorable film scene, even if they don't necessarily appear on the official CD soundtrack. I believe Travis has some movie-related posts coming up soon, so consider these warmup tracks.

[mp3] The Pixies - Where Is My Mind? (Fight Club)
[mp3] Death in Vegas - Girls (Lost in Translation)
[mp3] Grandaddy - A.M. 180 (28 Days Later)
[mp3] INXS - Never Tear Us Apart (Donnie Darko)

* Since Donnie Darko came up here, I have a related link. Marvellous Musical Melodies has a crazy selection of covers of the song "Mad World," including the Gary Jules version and the original Tears For Fears recording.

Wow - the Pixies sound like Modest Mouse heh heh... (or is it the other way around?)

Well, the Pixies track is from 1988 and Modest Mouse didn't form until about 5 years later, so yes, I guess it is the other way around. Cheers!
