Soul Coughing: "Circles"-sorry, I never heard it on the radio, and it's catchy.
Built to Spill: "Ancient Melodies of the Future" and "There's Nothing Wrong with Love," and the mp3 from amazon by them ""Still Flat"
and My Bloody Valentine: Loveless. It grows on you. :)

Queen is hilarious. "The Bicycle Race" is funny enough that me and my friends had to pull over on the way to the mountains to avoid crashing the car, we were laughing so hard the first time we all heard it. It was also the morning after a sleepless night, but that song is still hysterical.

Is it wrong that I wanted more Jin-as-Chinese ninja scenes than crying, mouth-covering, emotionally charged love (and one attempted rape) scenes? By the end of this movie, I was so frustrated with the story that threw my remaining theater nachos like a frisbee in the parking lot. They scattered all ...

Thank you so much. This is everything the Killers wish they were, but are too preoccupied with being talentless.

"From the forces that brought you X-Men?" Are you kidding me? I don't have any experience with the source material, but ugh. It looks like someone saw a Zhang Yimou movie and thought it was pretty cool, and within seconds caught a glance of an Elektra/Daredevil comic book cover and had a eureka mome...

OK, that was a lie, and my real favorite track of theirs is Eau d' Bedroom Dancing, but I can't find a free download for the unwashed. :)

Sweetie and Deceptacon are both good, but my favorite track by this band is Fake French. Download here: http://creativecommons.org/wired/

I think the ambiguous time-setting and the fact that all of the dialogue is pretty spartan, combined with the unbelieveable weirdness the film displays at certain points, like the awesome dance scene at the end, and the fact that everyone's house is completely isolated, and the large portion of even...

Some of the action is fantastic. Well, actually, all of the action is fantastic, but some parts are even more fantastic than others. And the way it used the different colors for different versions of the story, so by the third different color or so you were pretty sure that this wasn't the whole sto...

This is just priceless. http://www.thewebshite.co.uk/nickelback.htm

The lyrics actually merge into each other, becoming in the process a kind of benevolent super-being/song, descended unto us mortals with the message "Dude, Nickelback sucks."

The graphics are ridiculous, insane, good enough to make up for the fact that you always know exactly where the creepy hellspawn are going to pop out of. And they did do some original things, like the way your cursor shows up on computer screens. The only thing I really really disliked, aside from t...

I didn't like it. For one thing, the dialogue was needlessly arcane. Just because you are pretending to live in a circa 19th-century village doesn't mean you have to do away with all contractions. If anything, they smashed more words together back then than we do now. And, reared in a world in which...

At this very moment, MF Doom's Viktor Vaughn: Vaudeville Villain. But recently I've been following links and downloading alot of the music posted in the forum.

Did anyone pick his new Vaudeville Villain or whatever it's called? Or is this it? I have the first one, and I wouldn't really spend 15-18 dollars on Part 2 if it was the same stuff.
