Things... that remind me of other things!
1) Does this photo of Dom in a coat remind anybody else of the coat Billy's character wears in "Sniper 470"? It's from a photo shoot up on patsie's journal:





And here's Billy in "Sniper 470":



2) Does anybody else listen to the Foo Fighter's new song, with the chorus "What if I said you're not like the others?" and hear this instead (it helps to imagine David Grohl in front of a class of little kids, pointing to a group of images, and shouting at the top of his lungs):

"One of these things is NOT like the others,
One of these things is NOT like the others!"

*ggl* I swear, that's what it sounds like to me!

3) And, since things must always go in threes... what about the Decemberist's song "A Perfect Crime"? Does anybody else hear the vocal and think of Al Stewart? Now that I think of it, Al Stewart likes to do songs based on history, just as The Decemberists do.

A link to the Amazon page for "The Crane Wife" by The Decemberists - listen to "The Perfect Crime":

A link to the Amazon page for "Past, Present, and Future" by Al Stewart - listen to "Roads to Moscow":

WEll whatdoyaknow. It does look like his sniper hooded coat. It sure is an odd choice of garment for a photo shoot. The entire shoot is a bit odd, which makes me think he is doing it for a particular purpose rather than just doing a photoshoot.

Wonder who is paying for this photoshoot....

*moans* His hair is so short and not blond anymore *whimpers*

Same questions here! The pics are not so flattering, that's for certain. I think that's partly because of his look for the gravedigger role, and partly because of how they were shooting... but whether he had any say in how they shot it (he wanted to look "tough", or get away from Charlie), I don't know.

As somebody else said - I miss him smiling!

Its as if he is trying to convince the world he is some badass guy from Manchester.

I bet its for a part.

I'd much rather see him look sly, coy and smiling.

Wow, that does look the same! And he and Billy are sporting matching receding hairlines now too. ;)

LOL! I don't even know the song, or what David Grohl looks/sounds like, but that gives me such a hilarious mental image. HEE.

Yay!!! Somebody appreciate it! *L*!

Actually, he's a funny guy - which is hard to believe, since he was the bass player for Nirvana before Kurt Colbain died.

He then started his own band, the Foo Fighters (if you listen to rock at all, you're heard them, even if you don't remember), and it turns out he has a great sense of humor. Check him out in this video, where he plays most of the characters (!), starting with the steward, and including the large lady, himself, fangirl, and pilot:

I'm very fond of Al Stewart -- is the new album good? I can't get it to play in my browser, but if it's at all like his old ones, I'll just buy it.

I don't know; the one I was linking to was one of his old ones. I'd forgotten how haunting that song was though, and I don't have it on CD, so maybe I'll buy it.

Do you know the Decemberists? If so, I'm curious as to whether you find their singer's voice to be similar in the song I mention.

Speaking of similar singers: the "Falling" song from the movie "Once" was on the other day, and I thought the male singer was Cat Stevens - *L*!
