"Do You Wanna Dance" by the Ramones

In my opinion, this is the second catchiest song of all-time, behind only "I Want to Hold Your Hand."

"Mickey Mouse Theme" from Full Metal Jacket

Such an eerie scene.

The comments on the video's actual YouTube page are worth a glance because they're hilarious. Due to it being a place where people are going to have their things read, the commentary is about the relevance of Vietnam War, and debating over whether it was a good war or not.

Although slightly different, I'm partial to this comment:

"Imagine Charlie listening to Mickey in the dead of night wondering what these sick Americans are singing. Spooky."

Seriously, I like that comment. At the very least, it's much better than:

"Vietnam War is a really complex thing to discuss about. They called the wrong generation for a right war battled in the wrong way. Vietnam became communist and it wasn't good for Vietnam people."

Uhhh, sure, daveinrome.

Meeting Michael Bluth

During a press stop for Hancock (although he talked mainly about Arrested Development, the reason I was there), Nadia and I got got to meet Jason Bateman, and we got pictures with him and he autographed my copy of Arrested, season one.

The Darkest Night

A few nights ago, I had a dream in which I was a citizen of Gotham City, where Batman takes place. What made this dream special was that the townspeople, myself included, were under attack by...the Joker, specifically the Heath Ledger version, not Jack's.

As The Dark Knight inches ever closer to being released, I'm looking forward to it more and more--including, evidentially, even when I'm sleeping in dreams, although this was more of a nightmare.

I, along with about 30 others, was waiting on a subway platform for a train to arrive, when we heard banging and crashing from above. A few Gothamities went to take a peek to see what was going on, but moments later, there was screaming, and we all knew that they had died. I woke up just as soon as the Joker's shadow was becoming visible on a wall, and his voice could be heard.

Last summer, I really looked forward to The Simpsons Movie and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, but never so much that the film crept into my unconscious. Now all I have to do is wait until July 18 at 12:01 a.m. to see if Nolan's The Dark Knight is as scary as Josh Kurp's The Dark Knight.

"Heroin" by the Velvet Underground (acoustic)

Just fantastic.

The first time I ever heard "Heroin," it scared the shit out of me. It was while driving to my job at a local supermarket, Price Chopper, from my senior year of high school internship. As soon as the song started, I felt chills and knew that I'd never hear a song like this ever again.

To this day, I still haven't.

The Dark Knight Trailer

And here's the trailer for The Dark Knight.

Can't wait!

Batman Theme

I bought my tickets for The Dark Knight earlier today (on an IMAX screen!), so I'm in a Batman kind of mood. Here's the TV show opening.

Firefly Theme

While this song isn't one of my top played on my iPod (although it probably would be if I actually had it), I'm posting it for two reasons:

1. Already had one Joss Whedon post, why not make it two?

2. I finished Firefly earlier today, and I strongly recommend that everyone watch it. The show only lasted one season, so what could eventually have become a tired format (space cowboys with moral decisions) never got a chance to become stale because it wasn't on long enough for that to happen. It's a great show by the great Joss.

"Going Through the Motions" by Joss Whedon

From Buffy the Vampire Slayer's "Once More, With Feeling."

This week, I'll be highlighting some of the most played songs on my iPod, and, for whatever reason, this is my highest played song of the moment. Oh, and don't mind the fact that all the characters are in Sim form, I just couldn't find a better video.
