Enterprise Bridge

New intro music

I found another track to play under baseball starting lineups. It's the "Buddy's World" theme from Smokin' Aces, off the Clint Mansell score album (particularly, the first 2:30 of it.) Curses on the publisher for making me buy the whole album, but at $10 it's still cheaper than the CD. The lineup music list includes "Battle Without Honor Or Humanity" from Kill Bill, Rob Dougan's "Clubbed To Death" and the Propellerheads' "Spybreak!" from The Matrix, "Cells" from the trailer for Sin City, and Bulls/Glenbrook North standby "Sirius" by The (awesomely lethal) Alan Parsons Project.

The movie, by the way, rules hard, especially Jeremy Piven. It's a good action flick with a good story under it, and a sharp ending. Eric borrowed it off his dad while I was watching him over Christmas break, so it's finally off my "I need to see that" list. Don't watch it while you're involved in working on something else--you need to pay attention.

On that note, my dad renting and approving of Shoot 'Em Up prompted me to get off my ass and catch it on pay-per-view tonight. Truly, this is the product of someone saying "what are the 10 most ridiculous gunfights we could stage that haven't already been done by John Woo or Jason Statham?" and putting Clive Owen in them. The title is truth in advertising. No heavy or especially clever plot here. Just cartoon-scale violence, Clive Owen being a badass, and Marlon Brando wouldn't have chewed the scenery any harder than Paul Giamatti if you'd doused it in pesto sauce...
