I still haven't got another batch of favorite recs written up yet, but here's a couple other songs I've recently discovered and fallen in love with.

Kirsty MacColl - England 2, Columbia 0
When I first heard this start playing, I thought for sure I wouldn't like it, but I'm glad I kept listening, because now I love it so, so, so much. And the lyrics are great, so be sure to pay attention (I love when songs actually tell a story).

The Sounds - Living in America
This I love entirely for the bouncy funness of it. I could listen to it again and again and again...and I have! XD

Also, Hamasaki Ayumi's new album, Guilty, is pretty good. I've only listened through once, but I liked what I heard.

I have also on request recently uploaded Amuro Namie's entire discography and a few Mr.Children albums.

Moving on from music, I uploaded Luxor Mega Pack for Nancy, and figure I might as well get everyone else addicted, too share. This has the original Luxor, Luxor Amun Rising, Luxor 2, Luxor 3, and Luxor Mahjong. I really don't like 2 and 3 much, but Amun Rising is awesome (as is the original, of course). I have beaten both the original and Amun Rising many times, yet I still continue to play them (or at least the last several stages of each).

I also have Happy M'Gee, an unreleased short film starring Jude Law and Ewan McGregor, which they made sometime in the mid '90s. It's very student film-ish, but! Finally a movie with them both together! XD

And moving on from downloads to links, this is seriously the best Cute Overload I've ever seen.

And this article about a '60s/'70s girlgroup called Golden Half has some of the best Engrish I've ever seen. I mean, it doesn't get much better than "this group was formed exclusively half Japanese-breed girls of a foreign country race". I'd heard of Golden Half before; I'd just never made the connection to them all being half. (You should watch the video, too. Very groovy (and pretty catchy, actually).)

Speaking of Engrish, I'm not sure I've ever linked these videos here before, but even if I have, they deserve to be linked again, because they are the most hilarious things ever. This one has a woman giving some tips on sexy phrases to say in English, one of which is "first-rate cunt lapping". Then of course there's this one, which teaches English through exercise. Next time you do aerobics, instead of counting, say "Take anything you want! Take anything you want!" so you'll be prepared if you get mugged. But this is my very favorite. Here a Japanese woman and three European women teach English words for gentials and sex acts! The best part is they clearly chose these European women thinking, hey, white chicks! White chicks can speak English! Except for the part where their accents are just as bad as the Japanese woman's. XD The word "dick" comes on screen and they all go "deek". Plus it starts off with "Let's sexy English!" and includes a very realistic encounter between a guy and a girl:

Gloria: Hi, Taro!
Taro: Hi, Gloria! What's up?
Gloria: Yeah! This is pussy!
Taro: I see... This is dick!
Gloria: Dick? Not cock?
Taro: God dammed! You can say cock, too!
Gloria: All right! This is cockpit*, isn't it?
Taro: Yeah! I want to put it in!
Gloria: Is this dick inside of pussy?
Taro: You are good at blowing job, aren't you?
Gloria: Do you wanna try?
Both: Yeah!

The final "yeah!" is actually pronounced "yay!" and they end with this yatta pose... XD You may not be able to see it if you don't have a youtube account, because even though there is absolutely no sex or anything, it's rated 18+ for the language (every copy I've seen is, so I can't just link to a different one), but seriously, get an account. It takes two seconds and your life is not complete without this video.

*They previously introduced "cockpit" as a synonym for pussy...

1. This makes me want to buy a cat and a glass-top coffee table. So cool!

2. Jude has Lego Batman and Robin on his keychain. Dorktastic. ♥

3. Speaking of. Both he and Ewan are doing Shakespeare on stage next year (well, Ewan's run in Othello actually starts in November of this year). I think it's very cool they're doing theatre, but it's annoying that it's, you know, taking away from them making films I could watch.

4. I have been really tired the past week or so. Of course this coincides with me having a bunch of work to do (with a deadline!), being waaaaay behind on my lyrics site, having stuff I need to write, books out from the library, etc. etc. etc. Argh!

5. I'm down to just two more fics left to read for [ profile] mcshep_match. Hopefully they'll both be ones to rec. Oh, and speaking of fests, [ profile] telesilla and [ profile] helens78 are running ficrocksthe80s, an '80s music challenge on InsaneJournal. You sign up, get an '80s song, and write a fic inspired by it. All fandoms, including RPF.

Pics of Ewan and Colin Farrell at Venice Film Festival. In particular, I direct you to the hilarious second picture, where Colin is like, caressing Ewan's cheek and Ewan is giving him this coy look. I have no idea what's going on there, but I am amused.

I am so excited about this film, you don't even know. Match Point was one of my favorite movies of recent years and as this is a drama, I'm hoping for more of the same. Also, Ewan. I haven't seen in him anything in aaaaaages. (I have Miss Potter here, but haven't been arsed to watch it.) Speaking of Ewan's film, I really, really want to see Scenes of a Sexual Nature, but there are still no signs of it being released in the US. :(

There've been loads (and I mean literally like hundreds) of nice pics of Jude at Venice over on [ profile] law_news, too.

Please, please, please let this be true!

"Jude Law is to go on a motorcycle tour of South America to escape the aftermath of his break up with Sienna Miller - and has persuaded actor pal Ewan McGregor to go along for the ride.

The 'Closer' star was inspired by McGregor's 20,000 mile bike ride with best friend Charley Boorman which was televised in hit documentary series 'Long Way Round'.
Now 32-year-old Jude wants to follow the adventures of Che Guevara, featured in last year's hit movie 'The Motorcycle Diaries'.

A source said: 'It's been an awful year for Jude and he's been thinking of a way to escape all the madness ever since he finished with Sienna for good.

'He felt that he needed some kind of sabbatical and when Ewan sent him a DVD of 'Long Way Round' the idea just grabbed him.

The insider added to Britain's Daily Star newspaper: 'Like most people, he was inspired by the scenery in 'The Motorcycle Diaries' and quickly suggested to Ewan that they follow that route for a sequel.

'Ewan didn't need much persuading and agreed to join Jude with Charley for the second big adventure.'

Jude ditched Sienna Miller after the actress reportedly cheated on him with new James Bond actor Daniel Craig.

The split comes months after Law begged the 23-year-old for another chance after admitting sleeping with his children's nanny."
