i spent thursday night with ryan gosling. and by spent, i mean stood in a small sea of people at le poisson rouge and watched him play music that is actually waaaaay better than you'd expect it to be for the whole actor-starts-a-band biz. no really, i swear. i know exactly what you're thinking but trust me on this one. or just watch the vid below. it's a pretty good example of dead man's bones deal: zombies, cemeteries, gothy folkness, creepy-cool children's choir vocals, and old-timey spookiness. oh, and ryan gosling. did i mention that? the rest of your october is just begging for this soundtrack.
this was the scene. the zombie kids killed it. i think that's the back of my head down there in the right hand corner.
if only this had been my view.
