  1. Haha, good luck singing along with Jamie Foxx in the crowd. What the fuck was that?
  2. He'd be unleckie to not get a decent move after this tournament imo. It is a bit of a weird case, because he has just moved to a new club in the same division.
  3. Kinda hard to believe that Leckie plays second flight German football.
  4. Yay, The Tallest Man. Unfortunately he's coming to Copenhagen tomorrow (I think), but I didn't manage to nab tickets to him because of supreme laziness. He makes pretty regular trips to Australia, so I guess I'll have to catch him there. I'm obviously a big fan, and pretty happy to see him snag a spot on the list.
  5. Saw What Richard Did last night. It was an odd movie - like the tension is oppressive up until Richard "does" what he does, but after that it sort of peters out despite a great scene between the father and son. Even so, Jack Reynor is really wonderful in it, and Lars Mikkelsen was also very good, even if his character was oddly written. It is great to see him start to break into more English cinema. He's been good in everything I've seen him in - particularly The Killing/Forbrydelsen.
  6. Yzma (Eartha Kitt) was pretty fantastic as the villain from what I remember. It has been years since I've seen the film, but I have it on DVD in German (imaginatively titled "A Kingdom for a Llama").
  7. Haha, I could have even slipped Disclosure in! We had a moment, man!
  8. First time I've voted in this, so my order might change a bit! The Tallest Man on Earth Jens Lekman Iron & Wine Efterklang James Vincent McMorrow Joni Mitchell The National Patty Griffin Roy Orbison Sigur Rós Jake Bugg Final Fantasy/Owen Pallett Kings of Convenience Jonathan Richman Disclosure Glen Hansard Frank Turner James Blake Tame Impala Movits!
  9. My problem with the last season or two was that this whole show was geared towards the eventual climax of everybody Dexter knew finding out what he really was. That's what I'm pretty sure everyone wanted to see - we got a glimpse of it with Deb (despite it being dealt with in a fucking stupid manner), and, at least for a bit, it was intriguing television. You know, for eight seasons they did their best to make us invest in characters like Masuka, Angel, Quinn and, to a lesser extent, Astor and Cody, and you'd at least hope there's some sort of pay off. How do these people, who have come to know and like Dexter, react when they find out he's a serial killer? But at the end of the day, it was all for nothing - all these characters could easily have been replaced by other people without sideplots, and it wouldn't have detracted from the final arc which was a fucking love story. It's such a shame, because for all its faults, the show was pretty good for the first four or so seasons. I think ultimately the writers robbed us of a satisfactory and actually interesting ending by deciding that Dexter ending up caught or executed was too obvious, so they had to go a different way. Sometimes the obvious ending is the best one, considering they laid the groundwork for it for about five years.
  10. I'm sure there's an obvious reason, but can someone remind me why Walt would want to kill Lydia? Did she set him up with the Nazis in the first place?
  11. In a generation of really talented kid actors, the kid who plays Harrison might just be the worst.
