High Fidelity

I finally got around to watching this film today. I read the book a month ago or so. (Not sure, check my archives! :p) and I loved it. It's mainly about music, so I can relate. The love story is great and somewhat a statement on what men are really like inside.

Then when I realised there was a film based on the book, starring John Cusack and Jack Black, I wanted to watch the film straight away. Jack Black plays the role of Barry very well. Even if the book is set in London and the film is set in Chicago, it works very well.

So, I watched that when I got home from the Nye residence today, I finished watching around 5.50pm and decided to set up my PSTwo and my iDock that I recieved. I thought I'd stick in my Foo Fighters DVD I got from Christian for Christmas. I absolutely love it and I want to buy the CD now aswell. It's such a different approach from their normal tracks and very reminisent of Nirvana's Unplugged performance. Dave Grohl talks about Kurt Cobain and Nirvana in the DVD too, and even performs two of the songs he wrote whilst in Nirvana, Marigold and Friend of a Friend.

Anyway, on the lines of High Fidelity, I'll make it Top 3, not Top 5 because I haven't decided on it as of yet, but here are my Top 3 records:

1. "Flake" by Jack Johnson
2. "Emaline" by Ben Folds Five
3. "Everlong" by Foo Fighters

I thought hard about this list and have done since reading High Fidelity. But this is what I got so far, hopefully I'll be able to get 2 more to make a Top 5. I'll have to do a lot more listening and maybe look into what CD's I have or songs that changed my life.

Anyway, I gotta go to sleep soon as I have work at 7.30am. :(
