Metallica 4 Lemmy: Murder One !!!

Albumul nou Metallica, Self-Destruct, apare oficial miine. Am urmarit aparitiile single si videourile, de la Hardwired la Atlas, Rise. Insa MURDER ONE, piesa si clipul e un alt fel de animal.  O animatie semnata de Robert Valley (clipurile Gorillaz). Dedicta lui Lemmy Kilmister si despre el, cu o animatie exhaustiva care ii descrie binishor cariera, Sex, Jack and Rocknroll. The King is dead, Long Live the King ! 
"He helped us a lot. He was unafraid. And he was a character. And he was himself … He did his own thing to the last breath. No matter who you are, how could you not be inspired by that?"
James Hetfield despre Lemmy.
Sa trebuiasca sa mai zic cit de simpatici mi-au devenit Metallica post Some Kind of Monster ? Death ? Magnetic ? Lulu ? Through the Never ? Lars ? 
.... Here's to ya, Lemmy ! Always !!!! 
(thx to Mihai G.)
One crown
Shines on through the sound
One crown
Born to lose
One man
Does not give a damn
One man
No excuse
Aces wild
Aces high
All the aces
Aces 'til you die
White lines fading
The iron horse rolls on and on and on
Hear your thunder
Still feeding back
Still hear your thunder
The man in black
Born to lose
Living to win
One fist
Hammers through the mist
One fist
Steady on
One heart
Diehard from the start
One heart
Beats its song
Murder all
Murder one
Give me murder
Second class to none
Headlights fading
The iron horse rolls on and on and on
Still hear your thunder
Still feeding back
Still hear your thunder
The man in black
Born to lose
Living to win
Hear your thunder
Still feeding back
I still hear your thunder
The man in black
Born to lose
No excuse
'Til the end
Been living to win
Been living to win

Leon Russell RIP

If it Wasn't For BAD It'll Be Good :(
gone, gone. Jesus, A song for You, pe Leon Russell il iubeam in mod special.
Tightrope. Si am vrut sa ma duc sa il vad, la Paris in 2012, sau ceva genul. Should have done it. And I would've felt a bit better now. Or worse :(
So long, Leon.
comebackul din 2010, (v. blog: Meeting of the Year), datorat lui Elton John, al carui mentor a fost, THE UNION, a fost albumul meu preferat al acelui an.
Si de atunci incoace am facut prozeliti cu albumul, si piesa If it Wasn't For bad It'll Be Good. Yokko should know ;)
v. LMA in 2013 cu: It takes a lot to Laugh, It takes a Train to Cry :(
My darling Leon Russell passed away last night. He was a mentor, inspiration & so kind to me. I loved him and always will
Gone to Shiloh...:(

Ultimul ramas din Cei sapte magnifici, Robert Vaughn, a plecat si el in preeriile vesnice. Avea 83 de ani. ar fi putut sa ii dea un cameo in remakeul mediocru de anul acesta :(

Bun in roluri de politican veros (de la Bullit incoace), militar, oficial.
A jucat in Bullit, Podul de la Remagen, Brass Target, Infernul din zgirie-nori, in Hangar 18, in SF-ul inspirat din Cei sapte magnifici si samurai, Battle Beyond the Stars (1980, produs de Roger Corman). Vocea robotului Proteus IV in Demon Seed.

Leonard Cohen RIP

If you are the dealer, I'm out of the game
If you are the healer, it means I'm broken and lame
If thine is the glory then mine must be the shame
You want it darker
We kill the flame
Magnified, sanctified, be thy holy name
Vilified, crucified, in the human frame
A million candles burning for the help that never came
You want it darker
Hineni, hineni
I'm ready, my lord
There's a lover in the story
But the story's still the same
There's a lullaby for suffering
And a paradox to blame
But it's written in the scriptures
And it's not some idle claim
You want it darker
We kill the flame
They're lining up the prisoners
And the guards are taking aim
I struggled with some demons
They were middle class and tame
I didn't know I had permission to murder and to maim
You want

Leonard COHEN

obituary in Rolling Stone here
am avut onoarea de a-l vdea in toate cele 3 rinduri cind a cintat in Romania
-in 2008 chiar de ziua lui (v.aici
albumul sau ultim, You Want it Darker. despre moartea iminenta, despre pacea interiora, unul din cele mai bune de anul acesta. But still: We kill the flame :(
ultimul interviu:

...azi la Cluj....

Hacksaw Ridge (2016)

"Mad" Mel's mad comeback...a true war story Worth telling.
Medic, adventist & Conscient Objector Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield) saved 75 lives in WW2, at Hacksaw Ridge, a horryifing battle in the Pacific in 1945.
Hacksaw Ridge, Mel Gibson's comeback to directing after a 10 year gap (since Apocalypto), and his own inner battles with his addictions and past sins, is a resurrection, faith and redemption story.                         The war scenes are terrific. 
Things to object: a too classic and long act one backup story and mainly the musical score, by Rupert Gregson-Williams is too reminiscent of Hans Zimmer's The Thin Red Line. as is the atmosphere at the beginning of the picture.
<iframe width="854" height="480" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Dedicated to Andrew Lesnie and James Horner, they whould've been Mel's main contributors to HR. I would've loved Horner's score, esp. as his last one was wasted on the mediocre remake of Magnificent Seven :(
3 out of five, 6 out of 10 !
