Bill Murray + Radiohead, Graham Norton and Billy Corgan's blog
OK, I absolutely must see The Life Aquatic but it won't be released until December. As Veruca Salt one so eloquently and solicitously put it, "But I want it NOW! I want it NOW!!"
Ain't It Cool News ran a more detailed review of the film and, if it didn't sound fantastic before, it sure does now. During the reportedly epic shot where the camera buzzes around Bill Murray's ship, Radiohead's "Everything In Its Right Place" serves as the soundtrack. In addition, the film has a stop-motion shark that eats a guy. And a Brazilian guy that plays David Bowie covers in Portuguese. And lots n' lots of surreal imagery. And Bill Murray. While it'll be another 6 months before The Life Aquatic is released, it's already safe to say This Is The Greatest Film Ever Made.
I caught a bit of Graham Norton's new show on Comedy Central last night. I can't remember where I saw an episode of his British talk show (probably BBC America). Anyway, on last night's show, his crew plopped a Real Doll on a barstool with a speaker in its stomach. Sandra Bernhard provided the voice and together they convinced a man to wait for the doll in the bathroom. Later, another guy accidentally pulled its wig off. Was it as funny as a skit on Tom Green's late great talk show. Maybe. Was the whole staged? Probably. Do I care if it was staged? No. Real dolls = funny.
Billy Corgan has a blog.
On it, he talks about God and his physic. He also bad mouths the members of his old band, The Smashing Pumpkins.
Here is the link.
