Gaaaah. Go downtown; buy and hat; and hold the eff ON. Here’s a very strange video for the song that’s been running through my brain since I first heard it — “The Immigrant Song” by Trent Reznor and Karen O.
The fabulous lead singer of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs is celebrating her 33rd birthday today. Known for her crazy stage outfits and stage diving, Karen O (Karen Lee Orzolek) is definitely one of the coolest ladies in rock.
We can look forward to hearing the full cover of Led Zeppelin‘s “Immigrant Song” that she did with DiC favorite, Trent Reznor for the The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo soundtrack. (We LOVE how a chick is the only one who could pull off covering this song…)
She also recently worked David Lynch on his solo album Crazy Clown Town. Yeah Yeah Yeahs also confirmed that they were working on a new album, can’t wait!
Okay. Y’all ready for this? Fincher. Mara. Craig. Sands. Plummer, and REZNOR??
However, this trailer still gives me chills…in the best way possibly.
And yes, to all of the snoots out there, I’ve seen the Swedish version of “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”. If you haven’t noticed, I am fully capable of READING SUB-TITLES, so just don’t EVEN. Simply because a film is originally foreign-made, does not necessarily make it better.
The Swedish film was not nearly violent enough–particularly during Lisbeth’s “revenge” scene. It fell flat, in my opinion. I’m counting on my beloved David Fincher to satisfy my lust for woman on man violent payback in spades. I need more lengthy and extreme close-ups of Lisbeth with her tattoo gun, and other weapons of choice. The Swedish version of this particular scene was a complete mediocre let-down. Unsatisfying. Am I coming in clear?
I’m counting on an Oscar sweep. Ya hear me talkin’ to ya, Academy Members? I do not like being let down.
