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...

03:40 - !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.
The message from Ghost B.C.: "Children of the World! We want to pay homage to our friend Selim Lemouchi (The Devil's Blood and his own Selim Lemouchi & His Enemies) who has passed away and left the world one great talent poorer. R.I.P."
Today we lost a great musician and friend. Forever in my heart
When everything you have ever wanted is finally done with
When all of your nightmares are for a time obscured
As by a shining brainless beacon
Or a blinding eclipse of the many terrible shapes of this world
When you are calm and joyful
And finally entirely alone
Then in a great new darkness
You will finally execute your special plan
One big regret I have was not catching the Decibel Tour of 2012. I've seen all the bands on that bill, except The Devil's Blood. I had other commitments that night but I should have broken them, had I known. I know it was Selim's will to die but it is a great loss. RIP
He probably took his own life, like he wanted to. If such is this case, we should be happy he left on his own terms and in the way he wanted to go, having felt his purpose was fulfilled. I also mourn he will no longer compose music, he had a unique mind and vision that stoop apart in this world.
