Friday afternoon! Long awaited nap time, who could resist? I don’t know why I turned the TV on and … the whole idea of having a precious nap was time a-w-f-u-l-l-y wasted. Pasithea (greek goddess of sleep) took away my channel surfing tool and had left no option but to watch this one. I thought, she would exhibit little kindness for my sleep deprived eyes. Perplexed? Don’t be! My online “second life” greek friends confirmed that she is having a hard time figuring her life. Someone must have dumped her!
If you have fallen for the “Garden State” movie soundtrack, this is the upgraded version, at least to me. It is kind of mellow, can put you to sleep. I like Zach Braff from StarWorld’s Scrubs, and he acts fantastic! His choice on music seems quite understandable. The Garden State soundtrack was kind of sad, I even cried when the credit was on the run after the movie. It really was a tear-jerker. Natalie Portman was one of those cardinal points to get me through the movie, but then … I don’t know why but ended up liking it. “Atonement” gave me a similar heartache. The book is even better! I’ll cover that soon.
I enjoyed Garden State, but didn’t buy the soundtrack in that month but did fall in love with Frou Frou and Imogen Heap’s song “Let Go”…such a chill beat, even it was summer. I wasn’t expecting much from this soundtrack of “The Last Kiss”, but when Aimee Mann captivated me to buy the whole soundtrack, I could only get back to my senses just after ordering the downloads from iTunes. By then, I did lost 13 bucks! I could get out of that spell even after that, but Coldplay was another culprit to blindfold me. I wasn’t quite a fan of Coldplay, but they took the chance on me.
“Poor you !” I hear you saying that.
But then Josh Said … in an ongoing effort to be a better human being, I try my hardest not to look unkindly upon people who adore Zach Braff mixtape soundtracks. But it is exceedingly difficult, particularly when the “new” life-changing music is several years old.
Who cares if you don’t like it. It’s sweet and mellow.
