7-16-09 Nightwish – The Islander

Posted by Sean on July 16, 2009

Shanoah is off in California hunting the wumpus for the next couple days.

In the meantime, let’s take a break from 80s synth-pop and instead post some Finns who look like they gave too much at the blood drive and playing what my friend Mike likes to call “beard music”. This is Nightwish (MySpace here, Bebo here), a band that my friend Eric clued me into, with The Islander.

I have just one teensy question for you film makers out there: Where the hell is the color? I mean, almost every single movie that I’ve seen of late has been in shot in black, white and muddy shades of blue-grey, and everyone looks like extras from Underworld. I mean, what, did you lose the rest of your colors in the fire?

If perchance you did, I recommend you look into this really neat thing called Technicolor. It’s a little new – only 93 years old or so – but you nutty kids with your soda fountains and your rock and rolling music will love it.
