If it were up to me, Mexican drummer Antonio Sánchez’s work on Birdman would receive the Oscar for “Best Original Score” tonight, although both Hans Zimmer’s and Alexandre Desplat’s soundtracks for Interstellar and The Grand Budapest Hotel, respectively, are both very much deserving.
There won’t be a post about the Oscars on ASV (since the Internet is probably crowded with the stuff, anyway), but have a listen the Birdman soundtrack below, and enjoy the early Music Monday!
I’ve none of Philip’s prowess with interviewing. Journalism was never my thang unfortunately, so if the following review deviates too much from my regular formatting, I apologize. This review for Interstellar (2014) is ridiculously late anyways, so I figure something more . . . unstructured may be interesting.
Jeremiah, my fellow ASV Staff Writer (and winner of ASV’s Worst Grammatical Writer for 2014) and I got together emailed each other our thoughts on this galactic journey for the survival of humanity. In the end, I was glad to share this post with him. As I might have mentioned last year, watching Interstellar became a very personal experience for me, and I didn’t know if I truly wanted to bare that part of my beliefs to the tremulous ether of internet-blogging.
Talking to Jeremiah focused my thoughts and helped me consider a different point of view. I thank you for the contribution, my practically-a-third-brother.
