Movie Juno and band Rose Hips

Two topics to talk about, the movie Juno and the rock band Rose Hips.

Juno

Last night Heather and I saw a screening for the movie Juno. I’m not going to talk about the plot of the movie, if you want to learn more, go to the IMDB page. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0467406/

If you’re a Nirvana/Grunge generation child like myself, you will appreciate a lot of the dialog in the movie. Older folks will not get many of the jokes unless they’ve kept up with the current lingo and music. Otherwise, it’s a pretty good movie for anyone to watch.

Rose Hips

On the way home from the movie, I turned on the FM instead of listening to a podcast, listening into CD101 (modern rock station in Columbus). I found myself listening to a song that had the same kind of sound as Hum. I was utterly surprised near the end of the song to hear a woman’s voice. Today I checked out their myspace page, listened to 4 of their songs and sure enough, they sound a lot like Hum.

I wonder if they’re influenced by Hum and other 90’s modern rock or if they stumbled upon the sound on their own. Either way, I’m a fan now.

Hum Stars in Cadillac CTS TV Ad

Apparently the song has been in the CTS commercial for over a month now and I was unaware of it. I just saw the commercial for the first time tonight and practically flipped out. Oddly, it’s as if the cars finally caught up with the music, the riff was placed in the ad at just the right time.

If Cadillac wanted my attention, they sure got it now. I hope the band is getting well compensated and possibly inspired to write a new album.
