"Like a 30 Century Man"  
Okay, you know how I keep thinking I can't possibly love Adam Lambert any more than I already do? His album cover features blue hair and drips andgrogyny, his Rolling Stone article mentioned shrooming and he loves The Ark, IAMX and Velvet Goldmine!

Well check this out:


The only man to have sported that 'do that comes to mind is...

P.S. Okay, seriously, this is driving me nuts! Who was it that posted recently about Scott Walker? I have been obsessing a bit lately and wish I could track down that entry. I know it amused me.

argh. I really wish Ola would start looking glammy and hawt again, and get rid of that moomin troll look. okay so he doesn't really look like a moomin troll, but there's something about him that makes me think that anywayy.

moar glam plz!

apparently, the new Ark album is gonna RAWK, but I really hope rock as in Queen and not as in... Status Quo or someshit. THE BEARD NEEDS TO GO.


still need to find out of Ola's heard of Patrick yet or not! We were gonna give him mix cds with Patrick and IAMX, but then we never got round to it and now it's kind of too late for this time.

Bwahahaaha! Thanks so much for saying "Moomin Troll"! I have been on a mission to find some Moomin to watch after looking up the Wikipedia on Moomin because I was wondering what they were. We get these biscuits that are Moomin shpaped because my friend loves hippos but have no other frame of reference to the splendid land of Moomin.

I lost whatever other train of thought I had because of the Moomin... that's really saying something since the rest of conversation revolved around Patrick Wolf, Ola Salo, IAMX and Adam Lambert. I need to know if Adam listens to Patrick Wolf.

I've drawn Ola Salo as a Moomin.
I really should scan it.

Oh fuck yeah, I would love to see that! My roommate just suggested I draw Adam Lambert as a Moomin.

I want to lick his lips.

Anyhow... Where is your icon from?

I love Cinema Bizarre! Not the point of icon recognition apparently...

The Scott Walker post may or may not have been from me. Either way, I sure do love him!

It was you! I am pretty sure now that I think about it. It was just a passing mention...

"The Drift by Scott Walker is a terribly unsettling album, particularly since I was just getting into Scott Walker when I first heard it. Imagine my surprise when, instead of sassy songs about death and STDs, I got samples of braying donkeys and slabs of meat used as percussion! Scott Walker, he's a tricky one."

Hahaha. Too right. I am getting into his stuff chronologically so I've haven't worked up to Drift quite yet but I bore witness to the meat percussion and donkey sounds when watching his documentary.

I think it's definitely better to take things chronologically, since his earlier stuff is way, way more accessible. Which album are you on? I've been listening to "Scott 2" a lot lately.

That documentary is so, so good right?
VelvetGunpowder: doorqvelvetgunpowder on November 10th, 2009 04:13 pm (UTC)
That documentary is great! It triggered my interest enough to read his Wikipedia and listen to his albums. I just now started on Scott 2 actually.

It's funny, my favorite film director by a mile is Wes Anderson. I listen to his soundtracks all the time but the one I never could get a copy of was for "Life Aquatic" even though it is my favorite Wes Anderson film. I figured out where I initially knew Scott Walker was from LOVING the song 30 Century Man in Life Aquatic!

Ah, I'd forgotten he had a song in "The Life Aquatic"! I'll have to watch that again, now:) By the way, are you excited for "The Fantastic Mr. Fox"?
VelvetGunpowder: glittervelvetgunpowder on November 11th, 2009 05:54 pm (UTC)
SO EXCITED. It will be the first time I've been able to take the kids to see a Wes Anderson film in theaters! My favorite moviegoing experience of all time was going to see Life Aquatic alone on a whim when I had a babysitter. Wes Anderson was already my favorite but Seu Jorge singing Bowie songs? Hells yeah. I wish I owned more Wes Anderson films (I only have Royal Tenenbaums) but I want to get the kickass deluxe versions so I keep resisting.
