Sometimes, when I'm searching through artists for something to listen to on my iPod, I realize that I've let these precious British gems slip through the cracks. Again.
I'm so sorry, The Horrors. Please forgive me? I promise to worship your over-gelled hair and running eyeliner forever!
On another note, I (finally!) got the chance to watch Whip It last night, and boy oh boy is it good.
Ellen Page is legit my favorite actress. EVER. She makes her characters all seem so real and emotionally complex, while coming off as genuine, rather than cheesy. Drew Barrymore also proved she had some directorial chops for this film. I was, I admit, a little surprised by how much I liked this movie.
These girls have some serious skills (and a high pain tolerance!). Kinda makes me wanna get into roller derby...and maybe meet a hot guitarist along the way, too? Sigh...
I WANTWANTWANT Ellen's zebra tshirt! GRAWR! Lovely.
& I just loveloveloved all the random fashion in this movie! If I were into roller derby, I would dress like Ellen's character, Bliss, 24/7.
