iMix Musical Preview

While you're all waiting for the movie's imminent release -- early in 2006 -- here's a little musical preview for you, an iTunes mix of songs that inspired the movie:

Blood + Kisses iMix

All of these are pretty kickass songs. Some of them we actually used to cut certain scenes to ie: the opening seduction/kill scene (Courtney Love - Hold on to Me) and the confrontation between the Countess and Raven (Tricky - Aftermath). Others were inspirational in a more thematic way (Joy Division - Love Will Tear Us Apart, Johnny Cash - Hurt) both of which in one way or another sum up the themes of love & loss, pain & pleasure, guilt & sin, sex & violence, that run through the film. Others were used as musical touchtones for creating the final score (the scores for Suspiria and The Good, the Bad & the Ugly).

Finally, there's the music of Octavius. When I heard this CD I thought "Here's the man who should be creating music for this movie." Then we went out and hired him. His music is amazing. But you'll hear that soon enough. In the meantime, check out these tracks on iTunes.

Enjoy. G

G Simpson, what are we going to do...? I'm not sure about you but it's getting harder and harder to enjoy my blog because of all the spam it's getting attacked with. You may be having a similar problem... I enjoy my normal site about sexy kiss because it doesn't get cluttered with shallow comments, but when I'm visiting other blogs and places on the web looking for sexy kiss stuff it seems to be everywhere.

Well, good luck with your website goals. I wish you the best.

Whether tragic events touch your family personally or are brought into your home via newspapers and television, you can help children cope with the anxiety that violence, death, and disasters can cause.

Listening and talking to children about their concerns can reassure them that they will be safe. Start by encouraging them to discuss how they have been affected by what is happening around them. Even young children may have specific questions about tragedies. Children react to stress at their own developmental level.

The Caring for Every Child's Mental Health Campaign offers these pointers for parents and other caregivers:

* Encourage children to ask questions. Listen to what they say. Provide comfort and assurance that address their specific fears. It's okay to admit you can't answer all of their questions.
* Talk on their level. Communicate with your children in a way they can understand. Don't get too technical or complicated.
* Find out what frightens them. Encourage your children to talk about fears they may have. They may worry that someone will harm them at school or that someone will try to hurt you.
* Focus on the positive. Reinforce the fact that most people are kind and caring. Remind your child of the heroic actions taken by ordinary people to help victims of tragedy.
* Pay attention. Your children's play and drawings may give you a glimpse into their questions or concerns. Ask them to tell you what is going on in the game or the picture. It's an opportunity to clarify any misconceptions, answer questions, and give reassurance.
* Develop a plan. Establish a family emergency plan for the future, such as a meeting place where everyone should gather if something unexpected happens in your family or neighborhood. It can help you and your children feel safer.

If you are concerned about your child's reaction to stress or trauma, call your physician or a community mental health center.
