Leonardo DiCaprio made Daniel Day-Lewis to win an Oscar!!!

I am to tell of an anecdote revealed by legendary filmmaker Steven Spielberg as Daniel Day-Lewis won his third Oscar because of Leonardo Dicaprio´s advice, an incredible actor who unfortunately is having bad luck with Academy Award members (albeit he won one recently) was responsible nonetheless of one of the finest performances of recent times. Daniel Day-Lewis was not going to star Lincoln, he was not thrilled to do it and the role was written originally for Ralph Fiennes who worked alongside Steven Spielberg in the famous flick Schindler´s list.

However, time passed by and Spielberg delayed his project. When the new century came Ralph Fiennes felt too old to such a role and Spielberg  thought of Daniel Day-Lewis instead as the perfect candidate but the English-Irish actor was not convinced and he did not want to make that movie. One night thereafter,  Leonardo DiCaprio was having dinner with Steven Spielberg and the wife of the last one where Spielberg confessed DiCaprio his frustration over Lincoln. Indeed,  Steven Spielberg thought he was going to die without attempting one of his most coveted projects, the biopic of one of the most conciliatory presidents in the history of the United States of America: Abraham Lincoln. According to him, the only possible actor to do it was Daniel Day-Lewis. Spielberg was going to abandon the idea.

The following day, Leonardo DiCaprio phoned Steven Spielberg giving him Daniel Day Lewi´s personal phone number as he had convinced the renowned actor into making the main role of his latest project: Lincoln. The result is far to well known and now Daniel Day-Lewis is the only actor ever who has won three Academy Awards in the major category of best actor. Daniel Day Lewis

Deap Vally

It is utter complicated to listen to a single album entirely these days. Due to new social media tools such as Spotify we tend to overhear only those tracks that we like most, consequently, is somewhat commendable the quality of the first piece of work of a female rock band from California that I have just discovered called Deap Vally. It is impossible to forget their songs!!

Their debut album is overlaid with such an imposing quality that I have decided to write about them. Deap Vally, good lyrics, excellent sound, a cool, stylish singer (Lindsey Troy) and a wonderful drummer (Julie Edwards), these qualities thereof make Deap Vally a rock band to follow henceforth!!

Deap Vally reminds me a lot of White Stripes whose best songs alongside the ones Jack White has produced with other bands were the subject of a popular story published here no long ago.

The first album of Deap Vally is called Sistrionix, songs such as Bad for my body, Gonna make my own money, Woman of intention, End of the world, will make you be blessed with female rock music.
