    Many! I listen to a lot of afropop in various different languages (Zulu, Wolof, Swahili, etc). I also have a recently-developed but very passionate appreciation for field recordings from just about anywhere in the world.

    I can't say I listen to a lot of music in other languages. I have few songs that I listen to regularly that are in another language. Most of them I couldn't even tell you what language they were in.

    Zulu, Wolof, and Swahili huh? Wow that's something I never heard before myself. Do you have any fave songs that you'd be willing to share with me? xD Heck you can ask Kaori and Fab, I have the strangest tastes in music but imo variety is an amazing thing. |D

    Pretty much yes. I don't need to know what the lyrics are, it pleases my ear and that's all I care about. I'd hazard a guess that the lyrics are something to do with love :b

    Haha true. I don't know anyone else that listens to K-Pop and Dub Techno.

    I tend to listen to English vocal-based music, but a lot of my music of various European origin.
    I made an ambient album, download it if you want :)

    Outside of British, Canadian and American produced music I don't really listen to much else. There's a Japanese band called Shonen Knife that I am a big fan of though. They're so cute, especially when they do covers of famous songs. I definitely recommend a listen. They mostly sing in English but they have a very unique style when it comes to songwriting.

    Lol Xbox ONE.

    Bit of a dumb name. I mean I get it, it's your one stop for media, your one home console your one thing. I just think it sounds a little tacky. At least PS4 follows a canonical path.

    IKR? xD I expected them to use the name 720 like I'm sure many others did, but when I heard it was named the Xbox One I couldn't help but giggle. :b

    It's not a strong name. Over time it'll be fine, but just now it's a weak name. What is it with consoles having crap names? Wii U? Rubbish name.

    Playstation 4 is plain, but it continues the pattern and shows strength in the brand name.

    From 360 to 1 xD

    I've never owned an Xbox or desired owning one. Can't trash it though, since I know nothing about it. They are usually pretty much the same as Playstations anyway. Just depends what style you prefer. I've always though Xbox looked really cheap, clumpy and colourful like a kids toy.

    I don't mind the name so much as paying extra for used games and no backwards compatibility.

    Between the Xbox 360 and PS3, I would have gotten the PS3 if my brother hadn't already gotten the 360. That and most of the games I wanted were on multiple platforms.

The gist of it was that the film is about Hollywood's tendency to stifle creative talent - the Hollywood in Mulholland Dr is controlled by sinister forces whose ultimate goal is to ensure that Betty is never cast in Adam's film (as would be the natural order of things - when Adam and Betty have their brief almost-meeting in the first part of the film, Adam is clearly in awe of her). Although it is Rita, in the first part, who appears to be the hunted one, Betty is actually the intended victim all along, and it is her willingness to help reunite Rita (the pawn of the powers that be) with her true identity that seals her fate.

    I've actually lost track of how many times I've seen Mulholland Dr. XD I'd say eight at the very least.
    That's an interesting take on it. :o [/nearly a month later]

    Damn. xD

    I wonder if Gamestop will go through with their threat: Any console that prevents used games, Gamestop wont sell it.

    This whole "Pay full price for a used game" shtick from Microsoft is a disaster waiting to happen. No more rentals, no more Gamefly, no more trading in crappy games to Gamespot.

    I can relate to that though on my behalf it's because in my home we've always had Playstation, and Nintendo systems. Never got an Xbox until my Dad bought a used one from a family member. It really is a matter of preference and what games you play.

    The mere thought makes me shudder with disgust.
