Today’s Quote – What Writing Does

When it’s in a book I don’t think it’ll hurt anymore… exist anymore. One of the things writing does is wipe things out.

Replace them.

Giveaway – Begin Again Prize Pack

begin again movie giveaway

My friends over at eOne have asked me to give you a chance to see the new Mark Ruffalo/Keira Knightley film Begin Again, for free! Yes, this one features Adam Levine attempting to act, but let’s not hold that against it.

It comes from the same team that brought us the beautiful music film Once, so I understandably have high hopes for it.

I have 9 music-themed prize packs to giveaway, and each prize pack includes the following:

  • A copy of the soundtrack on CD
  • A Run of Engagement pass for 2 valid at any cinema in Canada excluding Quebec
  • Branded headphones & headphone splitters
  • Guitar picks
  • Sunglasses

To enter, just email me at lisa@turntherecordover.com with the words ‘Begin Again’ in the subject line of your email.

As always, Facebook fans and weekly newsletter subscribers get extra entries, so use that handy little form in the sidebar to sign up if you haven’t already. Remember, you must have clicked the confirmation email in order to actually be considered a subscriber and get that extra entry.

Keep in mind the ROE passes are only valid for all the theatres in Canada excluding Quebec. Winners will be chosen on Sunday July 20th and contacted via email.

Watch the too cute trailer here, and try not to dream about Mark Ruffalo too much for the rest of the day:

James Maddock – Bad Night

song of the week!

I’ve recently (finally!) started watching the brilliant FX show Louie, which happens to be written, directed by and starring one of my favourite people in the world, Louis CK. I marathoned season 1 and at the end of the final episode, this great song came on that I just had to share.

Apparently everyone was asking Louie what it was since the credits don’t list it and it doesn’t register on Shazaam, so he was kind enough to post it. Turns out Louie wrote the lyrics himself, and got local NYC musician James Maddock to perform it in the recording. It’s basically the perfect encapsulation of how it feels to have a really shitty night.

James Maddock has a beautiful raspy voice that allows for the requisite empathy the track requires.
