Sweeney Todd

We finally saw the Demon Barber of Fleet Street tonight.

Some observations:

1. What the fuck happened with the choruses? And the "Attend the tale of sweeney todd" opening which is the best song in the entire play?

2. Other people have complained that it's gory. It's really not that gory for a musical about serial killing and cannibalism. What did you expect? Have you seen Saw?

3. The scenes where they are at the beach are an abomination. The whole point of the play is that they are trapped in dismal London. To show clear blue sky behind them blows the mood.

4. Borat as Perelli is brilliant.

5. Depp isn't a bad singer.

6. As always Burton's visuals are gorgeous.

7. Snape!!! And Wormtail!!!! Awesome!

8. Overall I give it 3 out of 4 stars.

Agnostic Front

Death metal band DEICIDE have topped a new list of bands whose music is played to military prisoners in Iraq. The Florida group finished ahead of AC DC, Eminem and Metallica on the list, compiled by magazine Mother Jones, from reports, interrogation logs and personal accounts. Deicide drummer Steve Asheim says of the accolade, "It's cool. If we're up to military standards of audio abuse, it makes me feel like Deicide's doing our part for the troops."
