The Mephistopheles of Los Angeles-Videoclip of Marilyn Manson

No only Marilyn Manson is back with the impressive album The Pale Emperor, not only he is back in style and is to tour alongside Billy Corgan, what is more, he has produced one of his stylish plus iconic pieces of art where he does what all of us expect from him, a hell of a videoclip in the sense Marilyn Manson shows us all his character is capable of with this videoclip Mephistopheles of Los Angeles.

Far from being a hindrance, dark soul of Marilyn Manson takes it as an advantage to spread his abilities throughout Los Angeles where a mélange of young, beautiful (yet perhaps naive) girls fell into the arms of The Mephistopheles of Los Angeles as teaching his lessons is of paramount importance for Marilyn Manson.

Truth about Eyes Wide Shut.

Eyes Wide Shut is based upon a book named Dream Story, it was written by Arthur Schnitler in 1926, this book is about marriage and how time destroys everything, the protagonist enters into a strange world during carnival festivities. Eyes Wide Shut

What Stanley Kubrick did want to convey with his iconic movie Eyes Wide Shut is that marriage it is only a modern form of prostitution contingent upon the fact the only thing women can truly offer men is sex and the only thing do really men offer to women is money. The book Dream story  it is the only one that appears during the whole film, it is seen in an apartment when Tom Cruise visits a girl. (Read this in Spanish Eyes Wide Shut)

Stanley Kubrick disappeared from earth and was hidden in his beloved England. He could not make his dream project about his idol Napoleon, yet he was studying how to adapt the aforementioned book Dream Story

Suddenly, he presented Eyes Wide Shut. So talented Stanley Kubrick was and so relevant his figure was that it was unclear whether he was to end Eyes Wide Shut in the way we can watch it or if he was going to end it in another one because even though it has never been confirmed it was hinted that perhaps he was to change the end as he perished just before the premiere of Eyes Wide Shut  and several endings did exist albeit experts truly believe that ambiguous interpretation and the current open end of Eyes Wide Shut was what Stanley Kubrick was looking for in reality (there are 3 possible interpretations but the most reliable one it is which is included at the beginning of this post). Truth is producers took advantage of Stanley Kubrick´s passing away to play with mystery and it turned out to be profitable. 

Eyes Wide Shut may not be finest Stanley Kubrick´s masterpiece but it has some wonderful scenes therein. In fact, every scene hides a story, there are studies about Eyes Wide Shut  that leave you speechless as it has rich and meaningful lessons. It dawns on me time will tell how great Eyes Wide Shut is, it is unclear to me as yet why it was so panned at the time Eyes Wide Shut was released.

Eyes Wide Shut played adroitly with at that time cool couple Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman (they seemed the perfect marriage but more than a decade has passed since they broke up) Eyes Wide Shut  tells of at first sight enviable marriage, a wealthy one, they have a daughter, they are beautiful, brilliant, they seemed perfect.. 

Nonetheless, one day, Nicole Kidman  confesses her true feelings creating a hole inside the marriage hence during one night Tom Cruise meets a friend who introduces him in a dark world.

Stanley Kubrick did want to shoot the best movie from all Cinematographic Genres. Eyes Wide Shut can be deemed as a movie from many genres, yet at what it is perfect is to end Stanley Kubrick´s career.

So impacted Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman were with the sudden departure of Stanley Kubrick that they lent money to start a project named "Stanley Kubrick live in images". They two have a special memory of Stanley Kubrick (Tom Cruise is perhaps the only one actor who has worked with best filmmakers ever like Coppola, Scorsese, Kubrick, or Spielberg) 

Similarly, there are interesting anecdotes as the one that says Kubrick humiliated Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman many times. Indeed, shooting of Eyes Wide Shut was so intense and Kubrick exploited the couple so hard that they ended up worn out. 

What is more, a superb actor like Harvey Keitel abandoned the movie as he was utterly tired of Stanley Kubrick. Kubrick made them to repeat some scenes more than 80 times!!!!. Techniques of Stanley Kubrick were anathema to most of humans!!!.

Fortunate Son. One of the best songs in rock history.

One of the best rock bands in music history is Creedence Clearwater Revival, they did not last too much but did record so many great songs that are in music history by its own merits such as the one you are to enjoy on this post today. Fortunate Son that has somewhat become an anti war anthem.

As a matter of fact, fortunate son song was written and published in 1969 by Creedence Clearwater Revival, at that time Vietnam War impacted severely into the lives of Americans as millions of innocent Americans died in a conflict that made United States seem vulnerable for the first time. Even though lyrics of Fortunate Son song are not insulting nor clearly attacking disingenuous for many at that time United States government, richly ironical lyrics plus the superb music has made Fortunate Son be one of the finest songs in rock history. Now you can see a modern live version of Fortunate Son with leader of Creedence Clearwater Revival. John Fogerty with another American musical hero Bruce Springsteen. Do share, rate and comment.

"A great name tells you more" Regarding Aaron Keller´s post

Once I heard that everything is marketing and it is more than true because sometimes it does not matter how great a product is people tend to buy and consume with their hearts rather than with their minds ending up owning far too many products that perhaps were not so fabulous but our subconscious mind made us realise buying them was the best option available at that moment. Likewise, how many times we have repeated a song only because it was sung by a famous pop star who is praised by journalists and music pundits?. How many times have we bought a pair of trousers that are sold worldwide because a relevant brand has worked hard in an image that is deemed cool and fashionable?. Not only a name tells you more than just what the company does, sometimes the name is less important than the story behind it, for instance, if a brand name tells of an incredible personal story, a one of survival people can relate themselves to such story thereby when they see the name of the brand they are seeing the story behind it. Let´s take The Rolling Stones for instance, people remember the adventures of 5 men from England that aimlessly did conquer the world of music and lived so many adventures that they are now legends. We humans live ordinary lives, we have to sleep, stand bosses do pay a mortgage hence all of us do need adventure and exciting experiences if our company does have a great name and an interesting story behind it people will pay less interest about what such company does, yet they will buy your product. Choosing the name of the brand may be essential but what does it convey is even more relevant and as Aaron Keller says, it is more important than just what the company does.

Describing Someone special for Halcombe Norilsk

Chrissie was so special for Halcombe Norilsk that Halcombe would spend the whole day doing nothing but waiting for her to come to his side in order to talk about what was taking place all around the world. With regards to her physical features she had a long curly hair which matched perfectly with her shiny brown eyes. When she smiled some beautiful dimples would appear on her round face. Her teeth was as white as pure was her heart because she was always thinking in helping everybody around her, she did it gently waiting nothing in return. I will never forget the day I first met her, I was minding my own business as nothing seemed exciting, it was a dull night indeed, preposterous ideas which I could not stand for came from bored people hence the night did become more and more forgettable. Suddenly, a smiling face changed everything for once and all. It soon made me realized that night would linger on my mind forever because no only it changed such a horrible summer night it brought so much joy into my life that Chrissie will always be on the imagination and heart of Halcombe Norilsk reminding Halcombe happiness does exist!!!.

Being Julia. A hurrah for Annette Bening!!!! (and her alter ego)

Another great movie from 2003, an unforgettable one as a matter of fact, above all because of the role of Annette Bening What a wonderful performance!!! She was not able to win an Oscar (more than deserved on the other hand) because what Hilary Swank made the same year in the movie Million Dollar Baby was insuperable, yet I will never forget compelling Annette Bening´s acting skills on this movie Being Julia. Indeed, I truly believe she is not considered as she deserves. Furthermore, Annette Bening has known how to get old, accepting and assuming time passes by. Being Julia is based on the play Theatre by British Author W. Somerset Maugham. This alter ego avails herself of what she is good at!!!!!

Annette Bening Being Julia
Annette Bening 

Annette Bening is an actress who experiences a horrible period, a delicate one, she would star outstanding theatrical plays in the past but time passes by and she is no longer what she was, suddenly, she has a new opportunity, She has a new challenge ahead and a new play to star in but her unswerving and steadfast confidence seems to decay. 

Annette Bening Being Julia
Annette Bening Being Julia

The protagonist, starred by Annette Bening has an alter ego that is her conscience, an erstwhile professor who has passed away and helps her because he taught the protagonist everything she knows now. He helps her to follow her bliss,  gives her hints of the utmost importance. Annette Bening needs this advice even if it turns out to be criticism but what does she really need is to be back again to what she once was, the artist who once dazzled in her youth. For instance, movie Being Julia represents much better London and the world of Theatre than any other movie. Both  performance and character of Annette Bening are brilliant. The rest of the cast is nothing special, Jeremy Irons or the young actor are horrible without going any further. Being Julia gave Annette Bening a Golden Globe Award. This movie is superb because of Annette Bening and her conscience, everything else is not so important or visible as Annette Bening.

A hurrah for Annette Bening (and her alter ego)

What kind of man? Brand new song of Florence and the Machine.

What kind of man? is the brand new song of Florence and the Machine. What kind of man loves like this? What kind of man loves like this? shouts Florence Welch with her unique voice in an impressive videoclip you are about to watch.

                                 What kind of man? Florence and the Machine
What kind of man? Florence and the Machine

This song is about love and relationships, inside this videoclip we see how Florence Welch has suffered a lot regarding men, what is more, we even see how she is in a sleazy, sordid ritual, Florence Welch puff her chest out in order to express anger and disappointment with regards to what she is experiencing. To some degree this is what many women believe of men.
