bruce willis blues band

bruce willis can sing! did you know? i didnt...found some vids on you tube...was so impressed....he is defo the man! the one and only! i want the dvd of the story of fact i want to watch it right now...with a big big act 2 popcorn packet. ohh the yumminess of the act 2 guy. the uncle frm dil chahta hai i mean...

...was looking at imdb's list of movies directed by tim burton and its amazing how amnesiac i can be...i mean i love so many of these...but yet when i think of them...i forget that its tim burton...which is weird...cause he's just so gosh darn distinctive...or is he? these r the ones he s directed iv seen...iv also seen nightmare before christmas but he only wrote n produced that or something...

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007)
Sleepy Hollow (1999)
Edward Scissorhands (1990) < see these r his johnny depp ones...typicale creepy stuff...iv put ed wood in later cause it's v not typicale...its got the burton touch but its more whimsical than these three, hence my clubbing it with charlie and the chocolate factory...ok so i cant forget that those 2 r burton too cause johnny depp is only ever truly mental in burton films :D
sleepy hollow is the fainty one, wonka is the walking into things and falling over one...sweeney is...made for the depp man....but he doesnt hav a signature move as scissorhands he reminds me of dewy frm malcolm...that's got to be my fave tho!

Beetle Juice (1988)

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005)
Ed Wood (1994)

Big Fish (2003) - ok so this is the one which is moving away frm the typicale burton ness...its much lighter and brighter...but still surreal and beautiful...

Batman Returns (1992)
Batman (1989)

Mars Attacks! (1996)
Pee-wee's Big Adventure (1985) - these 2 r the ones that i completely forgot were burton flicks...ok pee wee i didnt know was burton until today! and now im completely delighted...cause it legitimises my previously deranged lowe for the movie...i watched it as a baaba and was disturbed and thrilled by its sheer subtle unsuitability for yeng chilluns...
i cannot tell you how much i love mars attacks! there r so many reasons:
sarah jessica parker's head on a handbag dog
the alien dressed up as a chick chewing gum and walking all swooshy
the universal sign of the donut
the many disturbing things the aliens do before they kill ppl
their large large heads and the single tear that drifts down his face after nicholson makes the daft senti speech...

i know im procrastinating on this site design and getting my portfolio printed basically terrified at the lack of structure in my life i think...nowhere to be, nothing to do, every moment of the day is not planned out...its up to me to get my life in order, working...get it looking the way i want it to look...and for that i need a job...for that i need a portfolio, website, cv, nice things to mail along with my application...grr....all of which im terrified of getting theyre going to look at my designs and say to themselves...right this is too busy..and thats just bad...and this one oh my god look at the font...*shudder* so what im saying is...i think too much? exactly! and thats the end of this session. thank you doctor.
