I only recently discovered The Sisters Of Mercy ("This Corrosion" was on a rock collection thinga-ma-jig, and I was like, oh, ok, goth choir!) and oh God, they are awesome.  This video for Temple of Love (1992) reminds me of the video for Swans' Love Of Life.  Ok, well, Love Of Life is a lot creepier (and supposedly "Luciferian"! - watch that one at your own risk!).


Sorry in advance, Lindsey. 

This kind of thing always makes me feel bad for not liking The Crow.  I feel like it's my duty to like The Crow.  And it's not that I dislike The Crow, I just can't take it seriously (also, Ebert said The Crow was better than all of Bruce Lee's movies, which I find really hard to believe, but I'm more forgiving of martial arts movies in general I suppose). 

Still, I've actually seen all the sequels on SciFi.  Boy, they are repetitive.  3 out of 4 concern dead boyfriends who come back to life to avenge dead girlfriends.  That is terrible, people.  SAW and Halloween are less formulaic.  The last one is hilarious because Tara Reid is in it.  Oh, and David Boreanaz.  They're both evil Satanists, speaking of being "Luciferian."  LOL. 

ETA: Extra LOL to the still-shot of the YouTube video being Ringu-ish!

That song "Temple of Love" was great, but oh, the CG dove! I was watching it thinking... there is something wrong with you your wings are moving, bird.

I thought the actor in The Crow was Bruce Lee's kid? Yeah, he's Brandon Lee.

Haha, I didn't even notice. I am not a bird-expert.

Yes, Ebert thought The Crow was better than all his dad's movies. I was like, how can you even make the comparison? So weird. Then again everybody also thought Brandon Lee was going to be some super-duper star, and I'm not sure why... eh. I was 7.

Now I'm imagining seven-year-old you, arms crossed, at a screening for critics, unimpressed.

LOL! Yes. Actually I'm pretty sure at that age I liked everything... except for Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. And Liar, Liar.

Not a big Jim Carrey fan at seven, huh.

I think the only thing I've ever liked him in is Eternal Sunshine.

I liked that one where his whole life is a TV show... what is that called? Like "Milford" or "Marshall" or something.** But I'm not a big fan of his either. Eternal Sunshine I had mixed feelings about--actually I don't remember it that well. I liked parts of it, though.

The OCD in me made me look it up: The Truman Show.

Yeah - that's the one I remember thinking, wow, this was a meticulously made movie, and it pleasantly surprised me, but I don't remember... any of it, except iconic images that float around the internet. Oh, and Montauk. Because I got out to Montauk my last semester in college.
