Various Artists – Clueless OST

19 Jul

Amy Heckerling’s Clueless (1995) should be on everyone’s Top 10 Teen Comedies list.  First of all, it might be the best adaptation of a Jane Austen novel (Emma).  Second, the film is solely responsible for the popularization of phrases like “Whatever!” and “As if!” which (regrettably in hindsight) remained a major part of teenage girl vernacular for the better part of two years.  But most importantly, Clueless is a zeitgeist flick that Continue reading

12 Songs About Extraterrestrial Life

14 Jun

There are two alien-centered blockbusters in theaters currently.  To immense anticipation, Ridley Scott tries his directorial hand at sci-fi for the first time since 1982’s Blade Runner with Prometheus, a prequel to his genius Alien.  To far less excitement, the third installment of the Men in Black series is out and combines at least three formulaic plot devices.  In any event, what better time to visit/revisit some songs about extraterrestrial life?

While this is less a question about their earlier material, to what is the appropriate response to the band now that it really feels like there is nothing left.

Almost four years to the day of the release of Radiohead’s In Rainbows and approximately three years since the discovery of the cryptic code for engineering the easter egg soundtrack, prosthetic knowledge, I learned about it thanks to my buddy, Marc.  Apparently, In Rainbows, originally titled 10 is supposed to act as a companion album to OK Computer which was originally titled 01 playing off of binary code.
