Trip To The Moovies 2/7

Harry: Today we saw the release of french duo AIR's latest project here in the uk (usa and canada is the 7th), a contemporary score to the first film by George Melies ~ Taken from Air's Website:

'Le Voyage Dans La Lune’ (A Trip To The Moon) is a classic black & white silent film by revered French director Georges Méliès Released in 1902, this legendary 16-minute film is widely considered one of the most important works in film history, and the very first to use science fiction'

"Spurred on by their work on this short movie, AIR decided to develop the project into a full album inspired by the film. Expanding the original musical themes beyond cinematic instrumentals, the album also features the vocal talents and lyrics of Au Revoir Simone and Victoria Legrand (Beach House). The band’s lunar fascinations have been evident since the beginning of their career with the release of the seminal 1998 classic Moon Safari. Now in 2012 Nicolas and JB have returned to explore the further regions of their very unique musical “space.”

HUGO entrains with TRIP TO THE MOON

stream the new AIR  album here 

I like the Moonkey sync here alot! The first time i heard of AIR was through 'Lost In Translation' where the track alone in Kyoto was used and I fell in love with the tranquility of the song/scene/setting and dug out there albums.

 I couldn't find the scene so heres both scenes/song, theres a 4:20 on Bill Murray's clock which is rad seeing as he has been the focus for a lot of people due to recent Groundhog/Bill Murray day & Scarlett 'dragon' Johanson picked up best international actress this past saturday at Golden Camera/GC awards. Enjoy the music for a minute:

Soon to be alongside mighty THOR in new Avengers Film: cool to add her first film role was in NORTH, a Rob Reiner (stand by me) flop apparently, main star is Elijah Wood seen here with narrator of the film Bruce '12 monkeys' Willis as Phooka/Bunny

Elijah Wood also runs his own record label which i found out is pretty damn cool, heres the logo (looks like a moonkey!) and is currently on british TV with this Harvey-esque phooka series called 'Wilfred' which is also like Frank from donnie darko but humourous, all three rolled into one. Infact the show definatley takes influence from this classic James Stewart film, as seen entraining by these two images here and below with use of the shadow or daemon. Which is a whole other theme explored by the black dogstar RA, the dogstar/sirius/moon being the pulling point here with these two images.

leaving this one open for interpretation be great to see everyones additions, I must go get a coffee/screen break!


  1. The Future is Now...
    proxy |ˈpräksē|
    noun ( pl. proxies)
    1 the authority to represent someone else, esp. in voting : they may register to vote by proxy.
    • a person authorized to act on behalf of another.
    • a document authorizing a person to vote on another's behalf.
    2 a figure that can be used to represent the value of something in a calculation : the use of a U.S. wealth measure as a proxy for the true worldwide measure.

    The Moon represents the Sun by Proxy.

    'Laum states that the value ratio of gold to silver remained stable throughout classical antiquity and into the Middle Ages and even modern times at 1:13 1/2. It is obvious that such a stability in the ratio cannot be explained in terms of rational supply and demand. The explanation, says Laum, lies in the astrological ratio of the cycles of their divine counterparts, the Sun and Moon.' -Norman O Brown, Life Against Death

  3. This is great Harry! I noticed that connection of the hero on "The Cross" too.

    part of this noodle baker is that the actor hanging off the clock in the image on the left, his name is Lloyd. And thus Christopher Lloyd on the clock in Back To The Future adds another dimension to this, I'm sure they were winking at the original but the sync is uncanny.

    The Power of Love

    . . . seems like Joe Alexander is on this case too--in regards to the hero in relation to time. I dunno, it definitely warrants more exploration.
    Nice Work!
