Sunday Sunday (1)


A lot happens in a week for me. Probably stuff that isn't important to other people, which are mainly things to do with TV shows I'm way too in love with. Films (which is what my life consists of anyway) and music, which is why this blog is turning out to be a very fitting thing for me at this point in my life.

      • Well, David Duchovny being on talk show after talk show really isn't helping my sanity. At all. One that it's him and two, everyone seems to be asking him the same questions which are beginning to become really old. At least he's extremely well at changing his answers just a tad for each question to make himself sane; I'd hate to have to do press like that. But then how would we get gold like the gifset at the start of this post. Even I didn't know that was what 'bae' meant. Thank you, David, for enlightening me with that fact.
         In other Duchovny related news, he has been doing some signings for his novel Holy Cow recently (which one of my friends managed to go to in New York, that I am still extremely jealous over through her snapchats of the momentous event). Signings where he has had Bree Sharp serenade him with the 90s classic, 'David Duchovny'. A song that my friends constantly label me with. (If you've never heard said song, you're in for a ride).

               At the Los Angeles signing, Chris Carter showed up elevating everyone's heart rates over the foreboding confirmation that a new X-Files is going to happen. Of which Duchovny keeps giving looming statements about, including: "It looks good. It looks very good. I can't say for sure, but it looks better than it did two weeks ago" (on The Talk) and more recently today in an interview with The Guardian, "I think it's going to happen pretty soon". STOP.

                    And it's not just Duchovny, Vince Gilligan also piped up with his opinion on the revival, making me love the man even more than I did already (if that were possible):
                        "I would love to be involved. I don’t know with my current schedule, if I necessarily could be involved, but I got to tell you. I hope that is the case, and it works out that there more X-Files in the offing because even if I weren’t involved, I can tell you as a fan, I’d be right there with my Dr. Pepper and my big bowl of popcorn, and the lights dimmed down low. I think The X-Files is going to live forever. I think it’s a wonderful show, I am more proud that I can even express that I was a part of it, that I was a fan before I was ever a part of it, and I knew it was something special before I was ever involved in it. The thought that there could be more episodes of The X-Files is very exciting to me indeed. Absolutely if I knew I could do it, I would love to be a part of it, but even if I am not, you can know for a fact that I’ll be watching every episode and rooting them on, and being very much the fan boy that I started, in regards to The X-Files."

                      Oh, what I would give for him to be involved. He needs to be.

                        In less X-Files related news (which is going to be the deal each week, I'm not even sorry), I saw Kingsman: The Secret Service this week. Which in all honesty, I wasn't that bothered about seeing. It wasn't on my 'must-watch' list. But boy, am I glad I saw it. That has got to be some of the most fun I've had watching a film in a while. And the church scene alone made that film one of the best of this year. And you could totally tell Matthew Vaughn directed it without even having to look at the credits. 

                               We finally found out who's headlining Friday night at Glastonbury this year, and it's none other than my boys, Foo Fighters. And it's the first year where I'm not jealous of them headlining a UK festival (like when they did Reading and Leeds in 2012) because I get to see them all on their own at Wembley in June. For the second time. To say I'm excited is an understatement. I'll be surprised if I make it through the lead-up to the concert, let alone the actual gig. 

                              And my prayers have been answered. Sonic Highways is going to be released on DVD/Blu-Ray. With a ton of extra footage and interviews. If it doesn't include them on 60 Minutes I will cry because that was pure gold.
                                    In keeping with my anticipated television shows of this year, a new Wayward Pines trailer was released and it looks even more creepy and distressing than it did the first time around. Cannot. Wait.

                                        Now. I wouldn't say I'm a comic book fan, since I've never really read a comic book. But I am a fan of comic book movies, and safe to say I've got a pretty solid line up for the next few years. One of them being Batman v Superman, which I'm really intrigued about. Especially since Zack Snyder posted a photo of Aquaman on Twitter, who in all honestly I've never been truly psyched over. Until now. 

                                                Brett Morgan also posted a photo on Twitter, the poster for his upcoming documentary on Kurt Cobain - 'Montage of Heck'. Which I am extremely excited about since it's the first documentary on him that has been approved by his family.

                                                      For some reason, I'd never seen The Lost World: Jurassic Park up until this week. Well, according to my Dad I have, but I don't remember any of it. So since I have the boxset of them on Blu-Ray and with Jurassic World coming out this year, I decided to finally refresh myself. The film is literally all Jeff Goldblum and Julianne Moore with dinosaurs and is more than I could have asked for. It was a match made in heaven for me.


                                                          In uni news, my lecturers have had a knack recently of nearly giving me heart attacks over casually mentioning David Lynch in conversation, then moving onto something else. This isn't good for my health and is starting to become a problem.

                                                          I hope one day we actually get to study his films more because when that day comes, everyone in my seminars is going to get extremely annoyed with me fangirling about everything to do with his work.

                                                          And here we have the song that inspired this weekly feature, and I hope it gets stuck in your heads too as it's done with mine since I was a kid.
