Goodbye OC - Hello Hollywood...

Or India rather...
Following on from the Phantom Planet/Jason Schwartzman paper trail I have left in the path beneath me...
I bring you an in-depth, accurate, delicate, intricate, enthusiastic, thrilling and complex review of Schwartzman's current project:The Darjeeling Limited...

Not really though. I'm not a critic, nor am I a reviewer - so I wont divulge too much about the film...
If you want to read a good review then go to The Observer's review of it from yesterday's paper...

Sunday's are shit.
Nothing to do except smoke cigarettes, drink ridiculous amounts of coffee and read the Observer...
Yesterday was better than most Sunday's though...
Because in the Observer's magazine was a front-cover feature with Natalie Portman...

Portman has jumped a couple of spots and is now joint top with Shannyn Sossamon for the coveted Shapes & Shadows number 1 spot of "Hottest Female on the Planet"...
After reading the interview, I found her to be even more incredible than I had thought and so I became desperate to see "The Darjeeling Limited" as she is in the short which appears before the movie...

The main reason I have a crush on her though is because her music taste rocks...
This next part wont be new to you - but let's just recap:
To benefit FINCA - an organization that fights poverty by providing microloans to entrepreneurs worldwide - Natalie compiled a selection of tunes from artists who are part of the Independent Online Distribution Alliance (IODA), as well as tracks from a few of her buddies.
The listing is as follows:

1. Tokyo Police Club - Be Good
2. Beirut - My Night With the Prostitute From Marseille [exclusive]
3. Tom Brosseau - Plaid Lined Jacket
4. Curumin - Tudo Bem Malandro
5. The Shins - Australia (Bjorn Yttling Mix) [exclusive]
6. Brett Dennen - Ain't No Reason
7. Sean Hayes - Turnaroundturnmeon
8. Thee More Shallows - Oh Yes, Another Mother
9. Angus & Julia Stone - The Beast
10. Antony & The Johnsons - Paddy's Gone
11. Vetiver - Idle Ties
12. Norah Jones - Broken
13. Devendra Banhart - There's Always Something Happening [exclusive]
14. M. Ward - What Is a Soul? [exclusive]
15. Wooden Wand - Forgiveness Figg (Bethany Hotel Blues)
16. Rogue Wave - How We Landed [exclusive]

Tokyo Police Club first on the list!!
And it's their best song.
A girl after my own heart.

Anyway, she stars in the short film before The Darjeeling Limited with this bloggers new friend Jason Schwartzman.
It's called Hotel Chevalier and is pretty damn awesome.
Cinematography is every inch of perfection and something we have come to expect from Wes Anderson.
Get down to the film early so you can see this short (and Portman's ass because she goes nude in it).
It's an intriguing little 13 minute spell of emotion and a great leeway into the actual film.


Here is an MP3 of Natalie's first choice song for her itunes album.
It's their best track and with a debut album on the way next year - it's exciting times for the Canucks.

Tokyo Police Club - Be Good Right-Click...

I can see the type of type of girl you go for forming now. A lot of similarities between Shannyn and Natalie.
I am sorry to say though Pedro but both of them are rubbish actresses.

Oi, do you kiss your mother with that mouth!?!?
I sincerely hope you're taking the piss.
They are damn good.

Tokyo Police Club represents all good music, if you like their music in the movie, check out their performance in the MTV woodie awards::

Leslie, don't entertain this little fucker. He never shuts up about them. The last thing we need is other people screaming about them nonstop too.

Jeez, Pedro!
Natalie Portman?
Have you seen Closer?! That should've ben the end of her career there 'n then.
So is Interpol on Sunday? Are you gonna try and squirm your way out of my birthday? Or are you coming to Cougar, they're on your books you know, technically you should be there, doing your job!
Jack - Talk some sense into this young man for me.

Obscure you are wasting your time with that little douche. He has listened to Interpol too much and they have turned him into a miserable little fuck now.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women. custom term papers said...
