Where Is My Mind?

Radio Protector is branching out (probably only for this once) into movies! Or rather a song, posted under the pretence of talking about movies. I dont really know anything about films to be honest, which is rather worrying for somebody with a Media and Journalism degree. Nevertheless, i get by. Just.

Basically i'm just wanting to pimp the new film based on a Chuck Palahniuk novel, called Choke. The more educated or culturally aware among you might remember the name Chuck Palahniuk from the first movie adaptation of one of his novels - Fight Club. Without doubt one of the best movies of all time. And no, i'm not biased. Honestly.

First stills of Choke (which stars the excellent Sam Rockwell) are all over the internet...

("Happy hour? I'll decide if it's happy, you decide which hour it is. Deal?")

...and they look rather swell too. Initial reports from the Sundance Film Festival where the movie has been showing for the first time are all positive, with Fox Searchlight picking up the distribution rights for $5 million USD. I've never said USD before, due to the fact i've never known what it meant until i looked it up on wikipedia the other day. Stupid me.

An interview about Choke is posted above. It featured clips and comments and all sorts of good shizzle.

Now, before i forget, this is a music blog. So you're probably hear looking for music (fair assumption, i'm sure you'll agree) - so without further ado, lets speak about the Pixies.

Okay, that's another subject i know very little about. However i do love the aforementioned film (and novel) Fight Club, so i first took an interest in the Pixies after hearing their classic track Where Is My Mind? at the end of the closing scene of the movie. Never has a track better fitted the climax of a film in my opinion, it's just perfection.

Hello again Radio Protector. I wanted to invite you and your readers to my new social network that I have created. It's similar in appearance to myspace (minus all the hormone-crazed teenagers), but it is intended to serve as a hangout for artists, musicians, and those who love art and music in general. I have also included a forum category for music bloggers such as yourself to promote their blogs and share updates. If you are interested, here is the url:

I hope to see you there. Take care.
