Weekend Music Chill

I wasn't a big fan of "The Hunger Games" movie, but I like this music from Arcade Fire that went accompanied the movie.  (I felt like there was a little bit of the whole "occupy" theme going on with the movie, when actually the framework is very fascist.) Regardless, this is very compelling music, this is Abraham's Daughter.

This is their breakout hit, Rebellion (Lies).


  1. I read the book and watched the movie.

    It's very pro-Tea Party.

    The Capital is a thinly disguised Washington D.C., looting the states and imposing poverty, slavery, and terror.

    1. W.C.
      I can see that, but some of the imagery and context made me think Occupy. Appreciate your interpretation, I could be wrong.

  2. I would recommend music from Blackmore's Night if you like the Celtic woman's voice with some spectacular clear metal guitar which is not overbearing nor is the focal point of the music. They seem to do this without drifting into a Gothic style.

    Also, Trans Siberian Orchestra has the best stage show I have ever seen. Topher and I usually try to get to see them, but may miss them this year.

    Hopefully Fema will pay me before the end of the month so I can keep this tradition.....but I doubt it.

    1. I listened to some of Blackmore's Night and its ok, but I can't seem to get enthused. It seems as though they have tried just a bit too hard to woo a mainstream audience to the detriment of their music. TSO is great, agreed.
