""Money doesn't come into it. It never has. I do what I do because it's all that I am." - Morrissey

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."

Is it weird to say I actually didn't like the Magnolia trailer(s)? I love the movie, I just didn't like the trailer very much. It was mostly just the music I didn't like. not that I don't like Aimee Mann, I just don't like that particular song and didn't think it worked well with what the movie was all about. It worked more like backround music and I wasn't too into it.

Although, I think the first trailer for Punch Drunk Love was bril. I still watch that trailer every now and then.

Casino -- two Stones songs. Need I say more.

Glengarry Glen Ross -- a trailer has never been so perfect at capturing the spirit of the movie, yet giving nothing away, and on top of it all, being absolutely electric. Why is this not on the dvd?????
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

I wasn't talking about the music so much as the way the characters introduced themselves to the camera, and the Ricky Jay narration...

...but now that you mention it, I think the song is perfect for the trailer. It has the right tempo and sense of propulsion for the editing.

Wonder Boys- I dunno, it's just that everytime I see the trailer it makes me want to see the movie.

Adaptation- I like the song, too bad it wasn't used in the actual movie.

Die Hard With a Vengeance- It was neat with the ticking time-bomb at the beggining at the music is good.

Vanilla Sky- Same with Wonder Boys.

Okay, so like, what is the name of the song that plays in the Magnolia trailer.  It's super cool, because it goes perfectly with the trailer, but it's not in the movie itself.  Thanks.  :)

Isn't it "Momentum" by Aimee Man?? And isn't it used prominently in the movie (playing loudly in Claudia's apt)??
