Wes is Back

I really do love Wes Anderson, but doesn't it look like he is turning out to be a one trick pony?

Things The Darjeeling Limited has in common with every other Wes Anderson film...which can be determined from the trailer

-Dysfunctional family
-Absent father
-One family member trying to mend a broken home
-Dry dialogue
-Long dolly shots
-Symmetrical frame
-Hyperbolic production design
-Indeterminate time period, but a period piece none the less
-That one shot with everyone in the frame, organized so that everyone is looking towards the camera.
-Slow motion on that one shot with an obscure 60's British rock song

Christ even the posters are starting to look the same.

Come on, Wes. You were the future of American cinema. Don't let us down on #5.

Patience: No Longer Just A Song By Guns N Roses

I know, I know many of you are wondering where the new fantastic superstatic, wondertastical Hella music video is. Some of you are wondering if it exists. Some of you are wondering if I even make music videos, and if my name is actually Aaron. Let me put your queries to rest.

Yes it exists, yes my name is Aaron, and fuck off its on it's way. Technology is a bitch and sometimes uploading genius takes more time than anticipated. Those who have seen the video are rendered speechless, thoughtless, and (on rare occasion) brainless. Just look at some of the reviews:

I can't get it to work. I hear music, but there is no video. Is there supposed to be a picture?
-My mom

I couldn't get the sound to work, but the picture looked good. Your credit card bill arrived. We need to have a talk.

-My dad

I mean, it's really good. I don't really like the song, but I think I can appreciate how cool the video is.

-My girlfriend

It looks super sweet, and we are really stoked.
-Hella guitar player Spencer Seim

Obviously the only review that even matters is the last one, and since my parents have trouble resetting the clock on the oven, I am not even sure why I sent them something as complicated as sound and picture coming out of their internet machine. So hold your horses, it is worth the wait.
