Movies, movies, movies... humm, well, the one that comes to mind directly related to witches, witchcraft, demons, evil and 'real' obscure thingies is Haxan, a silent movie from the early days of cinema, portraits stories about the old days in witchcraft. Nice documentary that can be accompanied with your preferred choice of music as soundtrack (personally, I listen to Art Zoyd and UZ).

As a matter of fact, I assisted to a screening at the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City, where this film, and Murnau's Nosferatu and Faust were proyected one each evening, while Art Zoyd (featuring personal hero Daniel Denis from UZ) sonorized and musicallized live the flicks. From any angle seen, it was awesome, one of the coolest things I've witnessed. The theme, the music, the players, the band, the director, the stories, the photography...

Folkish romance

Just wanted to throw a couple lines here before I forget about this great movie I just saw for the second time almost by accident. It's not my kind of flick, I know, but same thing happened with Amelie. Yes, this is a musical, and yes, it is about some kind of romance, but what makes it actually good and interesting (at least for me) is that they get together because they both are amateur musicians and almost without wanting it, they connect deeply through the simplicity of their shared music. For me, there are 2 moments on the film that are really worthy: when they jam for the first time at the music shop, and the first take of the first song in the studio. Those 2 moments really reached me, and the funniest part is that the music is not even close to the kind I like -it's folk!
Oh, and the spoiler: they don't stay together, which made the movie even better...

The second half of 'Presage' from UZED. Univers Zero at BajaProg 2007. How i wish I could had been there. Daniel Denis without any doubt is one of my biggest heroes. And this version of UZ actually play the song exactly as it is, in case any one wanted to know how the original sounded like. A dark movie for your ears. Superb.

And in a completely unrelated topic, an excerpt from Matt Groening's & Co at their finest, and a complete Looney Tunes episode, featuring the coolest character ever to appear on screen.

Alright alright alright, finally the date has almost arrived. Thursday evening it is, when we, cow, are heading to enjoy one of the finest rarities Asia has to offer right now to a bunch of loud doom freaks like us. Also Alex is coming to witness the coolest thing around.
The poster mentions 'Boris / Damon & Naomi US Tour 2007'. I'm not that certain on who are these guys, but here you can find some info. Michio Kurihara is going to play in both sets. The poster is also great, and it must be by Fangs Anal Satan as everything graphic for them.
Yes, quite excited to watch them perform live.
