And If There's Crack In The Basement..

How the fuck did I forget about the Cold Vein? I can think of nothing better to jam in your Ipod for these dark and icey winter evenings.. El-P's production is like having your brain torn out your ears with a PCP-dipped fishing hook.. In other words, it's ridiculous. Lyrically, Vast Aire and Vordul both merge into the madness with their stories of ghetto surgeries and crack babies born in the backstreets of Harlem.

If you haven't got this I suggest you kill yourself.. If you haven't got the balls for that, maybe you'd like to abuse this stolen link below..

Hollywood Strikes Again..

A leaked photo from the Old Boy film set I got from a contact

So it looks like Hollywood really are remaking Old Boy after all. After speculation that Tom Cruise would play the lead role, it turns out the far more accomplished and more suitable Will Smith is to fit the role with master director Steven Spielberg sorting out the drugs..

Taken from an article on the Coming Soon website..

Spielberg and Smith Eyeing Oldboy Remake

November 7, 2008

Steven Spielberg and Will Smith are in early discussions to collaborate on a remake of Chan Wook-park's Oldboy, says Variety. DreamWorks is in the process of securing the remake rights, and the new film will be distributed by Universal.

In the 2003 Korean original, a man gets kidnapped and held in a shabby cell for 15 years without explanation. Suddenly, he's released and given money, a cell phone and clothes and is set on a path to discover who destroyed his life so he can take revenge.

Smith who would play the kidnapped man if all the pieces fall into place. Spielberg is looking for a writer to begin the development process.

Spielberg is next expected to direct Tintin.

I have every faith that this will be a powerful and awe-inspiring piece of tragic thrill-drama; maybe even more so than the original! LOLZ!

All To Hell..

So I've been listening to alot of the Black Diamond Heavies recently..

This band fucking crush, kill and destroy all the way. If I was an NME journalist I'd probably describe them as Tom Waits stabbing John Lee Hooker to death with a broken bottle of distortion he stole from the Stooges. I'm not though, so instead of having some sad little music-nerd wank fantasy I'll simply describe them as a really nasty, dirty, deranged garage-blues band that sound like they drink alot and do alot of coke. Did I mention distortion?

Because my Internet connection here is so shit, I'm resorting to stealing links (Fuck BT). I don't know how many blog points I lose for that but it's gotta be a fuckload. Anyway, here's their debut album from last year, Every Damn Time. Props to whoever upped it..

The Sun Never Sets On The Cool Kids..

Mumford and Sons are a London based band that play really fucking good indie-folk tunes complete with banjos and harmonies. Marcus Mumford's voice really reminds me of a more melancholic Kid Harpoon and this is one of the best EPs I've heard all year. I can see this band developing quite a buzz over the next year..

I can't be fucked to upload something I've just downloaded so here's a link I stole off some forum.
