Guten Tag.29

Guten Tag is back up and running every week, hopefully. School is busy, but I managed to plot out a couple ideas ahead of time, so I'll be able to work off of those for now. 

Time for some things I'm interested in.

1) Appaloosa

I want to see this movie so bad. I haven't spoiled myself by reading any reviews, but I hope it's as good as 3:10 to Yuma or better. Viggo Mortenson and Ed Harris are great choices for a western.

2) Anathallo-Canopy Glow

Goodness. One of the greatest bands right now, and this album is finally coming out on November 18. If you don't know who they are, it's honestly hard to describe their sound besides saying that it's multi-instrumented and almost cinematic. Instead, listen to 'Noni's Field' on their myspace page: anathallo

This song is so promising that if all the songs on the album are as good as this, it could easily be better than their previous album. Which for me is hard to fathom, since Floating World is up in my top 5 albums. Gah. They're so good and from Michigan (although they've moved to Chicago). 

Alright, have a good week.

I was also very interested in seeing Appaloosa... it was very disappointing... and was horribly slow and very boring the second half of the movie. :/

Yeah, I'd have to agree with you. I don't know, I thought that it didn't give enough time between scenes. Like all the sudden, Jeremy Irons is pardoned and has bought the saloon. Oh okay. I didn't think they set that up that well.
But I did like Viggo in the last two minutes of the film.
Overall, not a lot of action, but it was short and sweet.

I think 3:10 to Yuma was better.
