People who are afraid of death, are afraid of life.
Listening is loving!

A while ago, a sad, tragic, curious case that occurred in my life kept me, somehow, away from my blogs, and from people I do not know well. People are strange, as the Doors are stating. Maybe Ronnie James Dio is right when he is singing to us (yes! he is still singing to us!) Don’t talk to strangers!
Anyway, the time has gone, the days are gone, yet I see not each and every day, but almost every day, a couple of visits on this blog. And I thought to myself that perhaps at least some of these visitors are people who already have visited my blog in the past. So if they are back here, they deserve to see something new! Well, not necessarily brand new ideas, or concepts, or design, yet a new approach to something already known.
You are not one of the above mentioned visitors? Don’t worry, I will treat you with equal respect! Even though the outside world is shaping our posts, the blog area is (not quite) a completely different world from the outside one, so here we are sharing our thoughts, ideas, opinions… Though, this blog is somehow limited. Limited by its theme and its direction: movies mainly; movies and music. And since I am scarcely writing on In Awe Of Rock (no longer available), more music will find its way to Three Years After.
Enough talking! – said a voice in my head. Oh, yes! A couple of days (or a week) ago, I was about to make a link between a TV series and a movie about the vikings, a written link in form of a blog post. And while watching one of the TV series mentioned above (yes, you figured out correctly, The Vikings), I remembered that Northmen: A Viking Saga, was ended with a powerful Amon Amarth song called Deceiver of the Gods. So I was listening to it again. Then I played Valhalla Awaits Me, with scenes from the TV series. Feel free to listen to them, then watch below the video that is linking these two productions: AMON AMARTH – Behind the scenes of “Deceiver of the Gods”!
After watching the proposed “link” video, you will also realize that, behind the music flashed above, there is a description of acting, of producing and directing a film, description made by the lead singer of Amon Amarth, Johan Hegg.
I say no more! Perhaps only one more word: ENJOY!
From the Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind I’ve reached Requiem for a Dream. I remember that a friend told me about Requiem for a Dream, and watched it about a year ago. From its director, Darren Aronofsky, I am definitely recommending (as a friend did a while ago for me) The Fountain.
Well, there’s also an actress that has drawn my attention while watching the movie: Jennifer Connelly. So I was looking for her on IMDB, and I reached Roy Orbison‘s song named I Drove All Night. I knew it since the ’90s. Beverly Hills 90210 fans watch it not only because I Drove All Night was quite a hit, but because Jason Priestley is starring in!
So here I am writing about music and film. About a short film, and music again. About Jennifer Connelly, Jason Priestley and Roy Orbison.
Enjoy the music! Enjoy the clip!
Without Love There Is Nothing
It’s the second time when Anathema (the band) drives me to another memorable movie. The music has the same moderate tunes, and these dramas are somehow alike.
The first Anathema song, Thin Air, made me look for the movie used for the clip. I’ve reached the Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I didn’t wrote a post back then, yet more than a year later I’ve made a reference to it in the Ice Skating post. Since there was not a strong connection between those two movies, a certain image, a frame from This Is Where I Leave You was the one who sent me to the Eternal Sunshine…, make me think that the Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is quite a movie.
Tonight, Anathema revealed the Perfect Sense to me through part two of The Lost Song. Besides the music that somehow (“accidentally”) bonds these two movies, the Perfect Sense made me thing again about, and go back to the Eternal Sunshine…
I’m talking nonsense… about the Perfect Sense…
This blog does not provide synopses, so this post will be not an exception. This blog is rather about synapses. It is about the spark that triggers a certain curiosity on a certain movie, and the connections between that igniting spark and the published post.
