I’m ecstatic for this one! I’ve been waiting patiently ever since I read the book , Salinger by David Shields and Shane Salerno. And now it’s here Rebel in the Rye. Enjoy the movie trailer and let me know what you think.
Just stopping by to say a quick hello. I’ve been busy sitting in my office…working. I’m too driven to go out and enjoy summer, especially when my work is near completion. And really this is only the beginning.
Right now I’m breaking from re-edits to enjoy some music. My protagonist is very Bohochic-inspired and her music tastes are eclectic. She loves bands like Wolf & Cub, Echo &The Bunnymen, and singer Lana Del Rey. Even underneath all this, she’s still very traditional (Bach, Mozart, Tchaikovsky).
When I write scenes, especially with her dialogue, I want my protagonist’s love for music to come out. Why? Because this is what she wants. Music is her escape. It’s a part of her hopes, dreams, goals, and most of all…her way out of the current situation she’s in.
I shared a few songs from this 80’s British band Echo and the Bunnymen before. I think I’ve said this a thousand times: lead singer Ian McCulloch is a brilliant songwriter. If you don’t believe me, read the lyrics from the song TheKilling Moon.
As for The Cutter, I read the lyrics to this song and couldn’t believe my eyes because the word Mustard is mentioned. To be honest, I will not look at mustard the same way now. Gotta love McCulloch’s use of words in lyrical matters.
This is Echo and the Bunnymen’s alternate version of their original song. Some people like the original version, some like the alternate. You decide. As for me… I like the alternate.
