I am intrigued by this song!!!  I am scouring the net trying to find out anything on this...have you thought of contacting Jerry Osbourne?  Good luck, for my sake, too: this is too catchy not to know!

Bump.  Here's a Sean Lennon cover, posted it on the board there and Sean listened to it.

Happiness MP3.
3  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / Smiley Smilers Who Make Music / Somewhat OT: A Sean Lennon Fan Cover Album on: October 19, 2006, 10:45:03 AM
On Sean Lennon's official message board, there is a thread about possibly doing a Sean Lennon fan cover album.  Sean posts regularly, and has corresponded quite a bit about his enthusiasm for the project, and thought that even a limited run of vinyl copies would be cool.  Anyway, I thought I would put the link up here in case anyone here would want to contribute.  It's a rare opportunity to have such contact with someone like Sean.

Let me know what you think.

Check this out: http://www.seanonolennon.com/forum.  Sean often posts there.

He has a new album out, "Friendly Fire", and for those who want to hear it, the whole album is streaming on VH1:

Sounds pretty good, I say.

He was album-wise.  Five years between new albums is prerequisite, yes, but nonetheless a long enough time to say he is, in essence, "back".  Ever since Oh Mercy he has been making good comebacks.

It was, and you can hear background noise. Big deal...didn't bother me at all.

Cool, will have to take the 2 hours to sit down and watch (and listen).

I've read complaints about the commentary, in that it was captured in the restaurant that Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach frequented during the writing of the film.  I haven't listened to it yet, just bits and pieces and it seems like an interesting idea to me, with the clattering "peas-and-carrots" ambience.

Nobody has mentioned this odd lyric:

"I was thinkin' 'bout Alicia Keys, couldn't keep from crying
When she was born in Hell's Kitchen, I was living down the line
I'm wondering where in the world Alicia Keys could be
I been looking for her even clear through Tennessee"

Too too too MOR for me.

This is an awesome article by a guy who appeared in the movie for a grand eight seconds.  Although somebody doesn't know how to spell "aquatic": http://www.yale56.org/life_acquatic.htm

Had this one laying around...probably should have left it there.  It turns into a mess at the end.  Maybe to induce worldwide migraines?  LOL.

Damn, forgot to look here, so the file has expired.
BT I didn't mean to put idigworms down, it was just my opinion.

No problem, Rocker.  Here is the previously posted MP3, though more has been done to improve the backing track and vocals.

About the movie, I actually hated it. I hated nearly everything about it. The visuals were interesting and I actually really enjoyed the action scenes and their ridiculousness, but as a whole, rubbish.

My favorite movie of all time is Rushmore and was so eager to see this. I just thought it was incredible unfunny and uninteresting. It was a weak premise that didn't hold up for me and just snowballed into ridiculousness. I mean, pirates? Not doing it for me.

I thought as a whole, it was very interesting, and full of interesting moments.

  • The film showing and Q & A at the film festival ("Was it a deliberate choice never to show the jaguar shark?"  "No. I dropped the camera.  Why are they laughing?")
  • Steve meeting Ned, then momentarily escaping reality to the tune of "Life On Mars?"
  • The "Let me tell you about my boat" sequence, where the kitchen "contains probably some of the most
    technologically advanced equipment on the ship."
  • The first interview between Steve and Kate.  ("Did it seem fake...when my best friend was bitten in half right in front of me...then eaten alive, screaming?  I think you're a fake.  And I think you're a phony...and a bad reporter.  How does that feel?  Now tell me something.  Does this seem fake?")
  • Bud Cort from "Harold and Maude" playing Bill, the Bond Company Stooge.  ("I'm also a human being.")
  • Team Zissou breaking into the sea lab.
  • During the pirate sequence, when Ned says "Wake up, Ned-o.  I'm sorry I yelled at you."  It's not supposed to be funny, by the way, rather scary and instilled with anxiety.
  • The letters between Steve and an 11 1/2 year old Ned.
  • Every scene with Hennessy.
  • Every scene with Klaus Daimler.
  • The scene with Steve and Ned in the helicopter (I won't elaborate for those who haven't seen the film.)

The fifth:

Matt Dillon
Chow Yun-Fat
Igor Stravinsky
Harry Houdini
Bill Murray
18  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou Thread on: August 24, 2006, 02:36:21 PM
It's called The Darjeeling Limited, and will also have Adrien Brody and Jason Schwartzman.

This is kind of funny:

Catchy in good way!  That is all that matters.

The first:

Jonathan Rhys Meyers
Chad Michael Murray
Michael Stipe

Luke Wilson
Nick Carter
F. W. Murnau

The second:

Gael Garcia Bernal
Rick Schroder
Jason Biggs
Roh Moo-hyun
Henry Fonda
Russell Crowe
Ewan McGregor

The third:

Michael Stipe
Robert Plant
Jean Chretien
Luke Wilson
Robin Gibb

The fourth:

Jean-Paul Belmondo
Felix Wankel
Ernst Rohm
David Beckham
Barry White
William Moseley
Paul Michael Glaser

Are we in agreement that Bill Murry is the biggest talent to ever emerge from SNL?

Funny, I thought that was Chevy Chase... Smiley

I loved this scene with Steve and Ned...it's one that deftly blurs the line dividing tragedy and comedy:

Ned: When'd you first hear about me?

Steve: About five years ago.  I...read it in an article about myself.

Ned: Did you believe it?

Steve: It was in the paper.  I assumed they checked their facts.

Ned: Why didn't you contact me?

Steve: Because I hate fathers and I never wanted to be one.
22  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou Thread on: August 24, 2006, 10:43:25 AM


Thought I would start a thread for this movie.  It's so densely saturated with interesting visuals, vibrant colors, great mise-en-scenes, dialogue, characters, music...and Bill Murray is the Zissou.

...Does anyone care to expound?
23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: John Lennon 'Mike Love is a jerk' on: August 19, 2006, 09:23:37 PM
I would acknowledge your post, Jason, but, as you know...

...I never learned how to read.

How sad.  I'm losing my mind, as well.
24  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: John Lennon 'Mike Love is a jerk' on: August 19, 2006, 08:43:06 PM
Hmm...this is where we all find out a deep, dark secret...

...I never learned how to read.  Cry Cheesy

Sorry, here is a better mix of what I'm leaning towards for the final backing track...experimented with some Billy Preston style organ after "so crowded I can hardly breath"...didn't really work, though LOL.  And I forgot the chords on Rolling River...need to figure them out...:
