Judging from the pre announcement gossip, it looks like Cannes 2009 will feature a strong crop of films. Sources suggest there will also be some strange entries including Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds (sic), Werner Herzog’s remake of Bad Lieutenant (starring Nicholas Cage!?) and a new Lars von Trier film, Antichrist thrown into the mix for good measure.It’s this last prospect that intrigues me the most.
Mr. Donnelly Sons. Mr. I’m a dual fan of the Bulls and T Wolves (spent half of my life in each place). Thibs is the problem. He’s a shitty head coach and/or GM. Cast as a first person reflection from the perspective of a soldier, White As Snow is a mournful minor key ballad that finds Bono murmuring hymnlike melodies over top of a circular acoustic guitar pattern, muted chimes and a climactic bridge of tastefully bowed strings that echo the vocal progressions.The slightly more out there Moment Of Surrender (which, if you believe the bumpf, was created through freespirited improvisation sessions) has similarly affecting moments. It’s a stab at white guy gospel soul, seven and a half minutes of keening organs and gently brushed cymbals. While Bono’s Al Green impression might elicit some cringing (the track would be much better as an instrumental), there’s still something about the vocal on this track that feels less disingenuous than the oily come ons he delivers on Get On Your Boots or the rock god posturing of Big Anthems like the title track and the Steve Lillywhite produced Breathe.Bono’s singing is a constant issue here.
Or so say the comments! It’s a dog that decomposed in the water: Still the most likely explanation. See especially the comments linked from Update 3 here. It can’t be a dog because of the way it decomposed and/or because it has a “beak”: The “beak” could be the result of cartilage worn away by the elements, no? And keep in mind that if a garbage bag or similar were placed over the dog before it went into the water, different parts of the body could decompose at different rates.
Sharapova has 35 career singles titles and over $36 million in career earnings. Sharapova is currently No. 7 in the WTA rankings after playing just three tournaments and the Fed Cup final in the last eight months since Wimbledon due to injuries. There are no foreign workers anymore there never really were before just other people like you and me trying to raise their children in good health, get them decent educations, and maybe put some money away to secure their futures. They are family to you and me, and family watches out for each other. We don’t say it’s too bad my brother or sister got a raw deal at the factory, but it’s none of my business.
