Song Discovories From Netflix

I discovered two songs that took my down the rabbit hole of music discovery and exploration. I just started watching Black Mirror. Episode 2 features a song called “Anyone Who Knows What Love Is” by Irma Thomas.

The end credits of Aziz Ansari Live At Madison Square Garden features “Hippie Hippie Hourrah” by Jacques Dutronic. He was married to Francoise Hardy.  I added him to my short list of French pop music ( which only includes Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot).

Book-Nick Veasey X-Ray

X-Ray machines are obtrusive in size, sound and in what they reveal. Used mostly in medical and security environments, they provide a glimpse into what is normally covered by human and non-human exoskeleton. Nick Veasay’s photo book, X-Ray is packed full of photographs of objects scanned under these large, dangerous mechanisms. Seeing the complex structure of plants, lightbulbs and other ordinary objects makes the viewer aware of what details can be observed by security scanners and x-ray machines.

Place Beyond The Pines

movies_place-beyond-the-pines

The Place Beyond The Pines features Ryan Gosling, Eva Mendez, Ray Liotta, and Bradley Cooper. Gosling is a fast riding motorcyclist that goes to extremes to prove to his girlfriend that he can provide for her. The movie is multi-layered and weaves its story across generations. I am a big Gosling fan and he plays his role similar to the one he did in Driver.
