03:49 - !J.O.O.E.! Overall I enjoyed it, despite glaring and numerous plot holes and being a too long. But I think it could have been better if it didn't want to be too many things and concentrated on just a few. Joon-ho Bong's The Host was a better
03:47 - Darth Satanious ...out of place on purpose. It is like everything, some may find that something works and some may not. Fucking traffic control in the Shoutbox,
03:45 - !J.O.O.E.! True, but Battle Royale felt clearly rooted in satire, so they got away with it.
03:43 - Darth Satanious I think they wanted to put an interesting character with her, and I believe they succeded. Her place in Snow reminds me of that chick in the instructional video of Battle Royale. A weird, kind of eccentric character that feels...
03:42 - !J.O.O.E.! Which is ironic because she was the best part of the film, but the one element which didn't belong.
03:40 - !J.O.O.E.! [SPOILERS] It's like on one hand, you have the serious and tragic tone of the film where babies were eaten etc, then on the other hand you have the caricatured, designed for humour character of Swinton. Not compatible imo.
Shining frontman Niklas Kvarforth recently announced that he is releasing a book titled When Prozac No Longer Helps, which contains every lyric ever written by him in both its original language (Swedish) and in English in a hardcover format, individually numbered in Kvarforth's own blood. The first pressing will be limited to 500 copies.
Niklas Kvarforth himself has translated the lyrics into English from the original Swedish. The first edition paperback will be published on December 7th. When Prozac No Longer Helps will only be available through the Shining web shop and can be pre-ordered here.
The following statement regarding the publication of the book has been issued by Kvarforth: "Far too long I've been pestered each and every day by people from all around this disgusting planet asking if I can translate this or that lyric into English. Up until a few months ago this seemed to be an impossible task due to the poetic style I use when writing Swedish. However, after several months of frustration I've put something truly horrific together and was so pleased with the result I decided to collect them all and make them into a book."
"I don't think many of you are truly interested in reading these, even though you say you do. As we all know, it is 'true' to state you really do care about the lyrics of a band like Shining. But being 'true' is probably the only reason you say so. So go ahead, prove me wrong. And to anyone bitching about the high price, well, it cost tons of money to print a fine edition in such a low quantity, and I am certainly not into charity."
"So go ahead, prove me wrong" !! C'on ... what he thinks he talking to?! a bunch of kindergarten's child!? ... besides his voice and according to statements like this one , he would fits in another job better than this. maybe a businessman!
Every time I read Kvarforth's drama queen statements, I imagine him reciting them like at the beginning of "The Eerie Cold". I find his pompousness to be a light and humorous contrast to the bleak image he puts forth with Shining. It's like Carpathian Forest and Vrangsinn's enormous ass.
Wow, I heard this guy was a bitchy asshole but this certainly crosses the line.. it's like someone is making him publish these lyrics so that we can share in the supreme cathartic experience that is reading his lyrics. He sounds like the members of Anus.com all converged into one. I'm gonna quote Necrobutcher from Mayhem on this one.. "I have a comment: FUCK YOU!"
