Damien Rice :: My Favorite Artists/Bands I think it was Cannonball that I first heard, and I think it may have been playing in a television show, Alias, if I remember correctly. I can almost see the scene, and feel the pin-prickles move across my skin while it played. The song stuck around long past the scene itself, and I soon was searching for it to include in a mix tape I was making. The lyrics to the song were heavy and heartbreaking, and I felt each line as it was sung. Love that could sink you, that could break you into pieces, that could teach you to lie, yet love that you still wanted to hold tight to; yes, I knew how that was.
Almost Famous (2000) Written by Cameron Crowe Directed by Cameron Crowe I was on a late night flight from Miami when I first saw Almost Famous. It was one of those flights that are undersold, so I had three seats to myself. I lay down with half-working headphones watching the film thinking that I would drift off to sleep. The movie captured me though, and I lay there wide-eyed watching, falling hard and fast for Penny Lane (Kate Hudson) and William Miller (Patrick Fugit) and Russell Hammond (Billy Crudup). Music has always led my heart and narrated my life, so music stories are a love of mine, and without a doubt or a moment’s hesitation, this one is my favorite.
