“i rather be #carriebrownstein than #carriebradshaw”
(Dark Dark Dark “How It Went Down”)
“It’s an age-old scene in a film: two perfectly manicured hands clasp each other spontaneously, and their owners sprint out of a gilded ballroom, a mass of skirts and untucked shirts, into a rainy street. “Anywhere but here, let’s get the hell out of this mad facsimile of real life and go and live for real.” Even though it’s not a surprise that those stories never work out, something about the second song to be released from Dark Dark Dark’s new album, Who Needs Who (out October 2 via Supply and Demand), makes it feel like Nona Marie Invie is proposing the idea to you for the very first time, ever. Although “the fluorescent lights can’t change a thing,” the graceful piano and softly splashing drums make it feel like a possibility.” - Laura Snapes, Pitchfork
So Adepero is really out of the running eh?
More rumors… but rumors are all we’ve got… over here —> (indiewire.com)
I love Zoe Saldana on screen and what she represents off-screen, but it just wouldn’t be the right casting - and what about the required singing chops? Does anyone know if anyone but Mary have them? 10 million dollars is a small budget and this movie just keeps getting delayed - not a good sign.
Singer Lauryn Hill is pictured here in a mug shot snapped after she was charged with failing to file several years of federal tax returns.
This is not how I’ll remember Ms. Hill. I refuse to reduce all her accomplishments to one (albeit gigantic) fiscal mistake.
