  2. BILLY BOB Thornton used music, as he always does, to get in the mood for filming the new “Fargo,” which debuts Tuesday night at 10 on FX.

    “Every day in my dressing room I listened to ‘Pet Sounds’ by the Beach Boys,” says Thornton.

    Not even his considerable acting skills can prevent him from laughing at the incongruity of listening to all those sweet Brian Wilson harmonies while prepping to play Lorne Malvo, as amoral and cold-blooded a fellow as anyone is likely to see on a television screen this year.

    “I’m always thinking about music,” says Thornton. “I also have pretty serious OCD, so that contributes. I wrote ‘Sling Blade,’ every word of it, while I was listening to a loop of ‘Holiday in Berlin’ by the Mothers of Invention.”

    Billy Bob Thornton talks about the role of music in his craft, and his wonderfully unusual musical choice to help him prepare for his character, Lorne Malvo, in Fargo.

    From NY Daily News—Billy Bob Thornton and Martin Freeman had to make adjustments when filming ‘Fargo’ in Calgary.

    "Never Change"

    disparition:

    Back in December, after we performed at the Welcome to Night Vale “Condos” show I was taking my gear outside and a fan shouted “we love you, never change!”

    And I appreciate the sentiment.. but Disparition is changing.

    It was about ten years ago that I released Satellite State, the very first Disparition album.  For almost all of that time Disparition has pretty much just been me making instrumental electronic music.  Last year, when we started doing live Night Vale shows at larger venues, I started experimenting with different variations of a live version of Disparition - in NYC with a guitar and string section, in Chicago with a fellow electronic musician Void En Vogue - rearranging older Disparition songs in new ways.  

    After I came back from Chicago I dove straight into the final period of work on my new album, Granicha. This album is a bit of a departure, including something that’s never been in a Disparition album before: lyrics. This is not ambient music, at least not in the sense that my past albums have been.  It’s not background music, drones, or soundscapes…  these are songs.  

    This is an album I’ve been wanting to make for a long time, and many parts of it have been cooking in my head for a long time.  But I didn’t really have the confidence or the knowledge to release something like this before.  I didn’t study music academically - when I was in college I studied writing and literature.  After various private experiments over the last couple years, I’m making writing lyrics part of my life. I’m very happy to have written words that I think convey what I am also expressing in music, and it’s been a great opportunity to work with several talented vocalists and instrumentalists.

    I decided to write this post because I know how useful ambient soundscapes are to a lot of people, especially creative people.  I sometimes get messages from fans telling me they use my music to help them focus while writing or drawing or painting or coding or just thinking, and I love hearing this because I worship artists like Brian Eno and Biosphere whose work I use myself in that same way. Knowing I help provide that same utility for some people is one of the things that keeps me going.  

    This new album Granicha, is different.  I’m not sure what it is exactly, maybe you’ll be able to tell me when you hear it.

    I’m certainly not done with ambient music or soundscapes, and in fact I’m developing a combined album/tool specifically for the creative process later this year, called Farbenlieder.  

    In the meantime, this is a good time for change. I can only ask that you listen with an open mind and the volume very loud.

    At Jewel Staite’s Q&A at Awesome Con in DC, she talked about the time she met Benedict Cumberbatch. She was in the green room and she saw her favorite flavor of tim tams, and she started eating them. She didn’t hear Benedict walk in behind her, and when he leaned over and…

    By the way, who taught you how to dance?

    But look how HAPPY RDJ!Sherlock and Jude!Watson are, and how sad and angsty our boys are. No. I need happy boys. Dammit.

    "love is a much more vicious motivator" sherlock says and then goes on to restart his heart for john watson, shoot a man for john watson, and risk spending the rest of his life in prison so john watson could be happy

    This is horrible.

    Of all the stuff in this episode that makes me feel sick, this right there probably wins. 

    I just can’t stop thinking FUCK YOU MARY

    Neither can John. 

    But god, the way he falls. It gives me a lump in my throat, every time. I just can’t believe that anyone thinks Sherlock deserved this, or that Mary wouldn’t/shouldn’t get her comeuppance for this.

    Just. No. This is not okay. This will NEVER be okay.

    no but honestly i can’t imagine they could come back to the friendship mode after what happened like it would be so ridiculous “hey remember that time i almost confessed my love to you on the tarmac” “yeah haha that was fun” there’s literally no way to come back to them just being friends

    I feel like this, too. And then I remember:

    "There’s no way they could go back to just being friends. John offered to die for Sherlock at the pool, and they agreed to die together……." Followed by Sherlock going right back into Dick mode, using John in a psychological/hallucinatory experiment, and wondering why John would care what the papers say about Sherlock Holmes.

    "There’s no way they could go back to just being friends. Sherlock gave up his reputation and faked his death to save John. Sherlock cried teardrops over John’s love and loyalty. Sherlock heard John’s graveside speech and saw him weeping…." Followed by ‘What life, I’ve been away!’ And a silly fake-moustache gig, and ‘I’m you best friend?’ and THEN figuring out his feelings for John but letting John marry and stay with an assassin or whatever is happening, because we have really no clue about Mary’s or Sherlock’s true motives with that.

    I think this show has a definite problem with RESOLVING the big, emotional moments it loves to create. And that is one of my biggest sources of doubt and disappointment with it.

    *Sherlock saves Irene from execution*

    Audience- “Yeah it’s obvious he’s in love with her.”

    .

    *Sherlock runs into and rips apart a burning bonfire with his bare hands to save John even though there were experts there who could have done it*

    Audience- “Why do people say that Sherlock loves John? It’s just a friendship.”

Detective Inspector Sally Donovan’s opinion of Doctor Molly Hooper was cemented the first time they met. For all of her insightful post-mortems, a person who sings “Don’t Say Goodbye” to corpses as she cuts open their chest cavities can’t be right in the head. Even if it is one of Take That’s better songs.
In turn, though Molly admires Sally’s keen wits and instincts, she has little patience for the Detective Inspector’s abrupt personality. Molly can’t help but feel a natural suspicion of anyone who doesn’t even crack a smile at her joke about golf and murder.
But when a serial killer known as The Surgeon starts systematically killing young men, Sally and Molly form a surprisingly productive partnership. As they work feverishly to solve the string of murders, they find that their differing personalities contrast with brilliant results.
Add a shared love for early 90s Britpop to the mix, and Sally and Molly might just discover that, amidst enmity and entrails, their differing personalities also make for a rather brilliant friendship.

I HAVE A POWERFUL NEED.

HOLY SHIT I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE
