"How You Stay Faithful In A Room Fulla Hoes?"

I've just found out about this American comedian Zach Galifianakis. He seems dead funny and makes a bunch of funny vids. I ordered his DVD, so I'll let you know if it's any good.

Well, one of his funny videos was made for Kanye West. I don't know if it's like an official, apparently West commissioned it, but I don't know if you'll be seeing it on The Hits any time soon. Apparently they took it all seriously and their thought process was; what if to hill-billies made a video for "You Can't Tell Me Nothing" and pulled it off. Will Oldham (Bonnie Prince Billy) also features as Zach's sinister, in-bred cousion.

I posted the You tuber version below, but I really recommend you watch the hi-resolution Quicktime version here.

Juno, Juno, Juno

The other day I got to attend a blogger's screening (yeah, I know) of the new film from Fox, Juno. Dead good it was too. It's strange, the fore-most thought I had was that if I was making a film about a 16 year-old girl who got pregnant and decides she wants to give the baby to a loving couple instead of having an abortion, it would be very similar to this.

It is simply made up of lots of things that I like. The music in the film is largely made up of songs by Kimya Dawson, who I'm a big fan of (if you can, get hold of the new Schwervon album. It combines 2 thing I like in the world, Anti-folk and Bentheillustrator), the cast is made up of people I've enjoyed watching over the last few years, Micheal Cera and Jason Bateman (both from Arrested Development), Allison Janney (of West Wing), there is a great cameo by Rainn Wilson (of The Office) and Ellen Page was great in the lead as Juno.

The script is really sarcastic, in a good way. There is a kinda cynical tone which is channeled through the lead but is also witnessed in the other supporting characters. It could quite easily have been irritating (who wants to spend 2 hours watching a bunch of sarcy yoofs), but I guess there is a warmth in the script and the performances that stops it being over cynical.

What I'm trying to say is that I really liked it and I think if you read this blog you probably will too, so look out for it next February.
