Music I dig 031: Black Lips – Veni Vidi Vici (2007)

This music takes me back to an era where good music couldn’t be made without the extensive use of LSD and when gangsta rap bling bling was non-existent. Rethinking that, it makes me long for those times.

Anyway, the weather outside makes me want to go out and surf – or least hang out at a beach. I found the video on vimeo. No, I don’t have the number of the girl with the exquisite tusch.

Movie I dig 016: 4 luni, 3 saptamâni si 2 zile (4 months, 3 weeks and 2 days) (2007)

The central theme in this movie is the sum of abortion and life in pre 1989 revolution Romania. The sum obviously is illegal abortion. Although the law making abortion illegal in Romania eventually became the cause for the fall of the regime (a huge young population rising up against the tyrant powers), this movie instead of taking on the big picture, zooms in on the personal consequences of this prohibition. And it does this in a slowly creeping painful storyline. It really takes you and doesn’t let you go until well after the movie.

Most of the scenes are shot in a single hotelroom and with the same three characters. All three do and say things they shouldn’t, but at the same time should. Really should. This movie portrays how life under tyrant rule can be a struggle to survive. Various parts of the movie are quite brutal, as is the storyline in general.

A very nice winner of the Palme d’Or that will definitely make you feel grateful for living in a free country.

Music I dig 021: Papercuts – Unavailable (2007)

Heard this one yesterday and was immediately struck by it. It sounds nice, funny and melancholic at the same time. And I like me some of that cocktail.

It is featured on Papercuts’ album ‘Can’t go back’ and will feature on Trentemøller’s Late Night Tales compilation!

Enjoy!
