Weekend Soundtrack – While I Write….

Some people prefer silence while they write, others prefer a long playlist from a favourite artist. I have already shown you my favourites but this is a sample of what I listen to overall.

 

Playlist – http://youtu.be/hyr5WdrEvGI?list=PL-7pljWi2ZLuUxkXznmvl2GWRQhAQnjfZ

 

 

The Cure – Burn

I am already looking to Halloween, I will be writing a Crow review and look to find stuff to fit round it.

Minimal Beat – Lindsey Stirling

Violin to dubstep – no vocals. All sounds good to me.

Toya Delazy – Love Is In The Air

I cant get the song’s lyrics out of my head. Looks like I will be using it to catapult another 4  parter for Music Lyrics posts.

The Hives – Hate to Say I Told You So – Live in New York

High rhythm, High Drums, cant hear the vocals as much but love the song.

The Hives – Wait a Minute  and Won’t Be Long

Good band.

 

What do you listen to when you write?

Sporting Preview – Top 5 Things

With the new European football season due to start, its time to look at what to look out for:

5. My Team – Leeds United

I have to say Leeds because they are an unknown quantity coming into this new season, with Cellino as the Owner and  a new Director of Football and a unknown “coach”. Currently have lost quite a few of their preseason games but that is to be expected with a new regime. They are either going to be looking as surprise promotion contenders or relegation strugglers. I dont know at this point.

4. Liverpool without Suarez

The story of last season was the rivals Liverpool and Man City. Liverpool are a more interesting package going into this new season out of the 2 with the Suarez factor. Now without Suarez can they perform like they did last year.

They have sold Suarez for alot of money and have bought big, Adam Lallana and Rickie Lambert, pair of talents from Southampton. They should become big players for Liverpool in the new season.

They tried to get Alexis Sanchez but he went to Arsenal.  So they got Emre Can and Lazar Markovic. Both unknowns to me.

3. Arsenal

Another team that had a strong season but lacked that final step. Arsenal have bought Alexis Sanchez, under the nose of Liverpool. Him and Giroud upfront and on form could be a dynamic duo. Debuchy should be coming in to replace Sagna – who is on route to Man City.

Arsenal will be a good outside bet for the title this year.

2. Man United

The one thing Man United lacked last season was a strong pre season, to get the players in and bed them in quickly. Moyes can only be a bit player and would of love the support that Van Gaal has got. Van Gaal is ready and is still buying.

Do I think Man United will be contenders? – Not Yet. In January we will know more.

1. Real Madrid- need a quick start

With Suarez out until late October, Real Madrid will look to expose Barcelona’s Weakness. With the signing of a star from the world cup in Golden Boot Winner James Rodriguez. They have bought well, but can they follow through.

 

That’s my top 5 – what are you looking forward to in this new football season?

World Film – Conclusion

I havent disclosured spoilers for this feature, its not like music where I can to say how I feel about it and not ruin it for others. If I say its good because of this and this, it leads to the film being ruined. I have had it done to me.

On 29th of September for 1 week I will be having a break, but for that break I have the spooiler reviews from World Film to show you.

29th – Africa Day

30th – North America Day

1st – Central America Day

2nd – South America Day

3rd – Europe Day

4th – Asia Day

5th – Oceania Day

 

So if you think I have missed anything that I should tell my audience let me know. I enjoy the new and the interesting.

World Film – Africa – Blood Diamond

blood diamond

 

Details

Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Djimon Hounsou and Jennifer Connelly.

Director: Edward Zwick

Year: 2006

Genre: Adventure Drama Thriller

Plot: “A fisherman, a smuggler, and a syndicate of businessmen match wits over the possession of a priceless diamond.” – IMDb

Why?

Where District 9 offers a fake story in fiction, Blood Diamond is the telling of what was happening in Africa. It is still fiction, but it has a major basis in reality.

This is one for the ones who like a dramatic story that is in reality and does not start being a fantasy science fiction story. Very Dramatic and very real.

World Film – Africa – District 9

District 9

Details

Director: Neill Blomkamp

Year: 2009

Genre: Sci Fi Action Thiller

Plot: “An extraterrestrial race forced to live in slum-like conditions on Earth suddenly finds a kindred spirit in a government agent who is exposed to their biotechnology.”-IMDb

Why?

It is a mockamentary based on current day technology, views and opinions. Well some opinion, if an alien ship crash landed what would your government do. It sports an opinion of our governments but obviously is fiction. Who knows – has a government hid an alien landing?

Directors: Roger Allers and Rob Minkoff

Year: 1994

Genre: Animated Adventure Drama

Plot: “Lion cub and future king Simba searches for his identity. His eagerness to please others and penchant for testing his boundaries sometimes gets him into trouble.” – IMDb

Why?

It is one of the best symbolised films of the “Animal Kingdom” and shows off the “circle of life”. lol.

To me, if you or your family haven’t seen this film, it is a great family film to be seen. The cast is great with a musical twist.
