The coldest blood runs through my veins

Until about some weeks ago, I used to bug certain people like Anirudh and my own brother to add new posts for their blogs, and used to make them rather guilty for not getting off their chair and writing something for their namesakes...I've stopped now, partly because they don't listen and partly due to the fact that it has started to happen to me.

There is sometimes not enough time - and when there is, there's a lack of motivation - no topic to write about, not much stuff to write about and so many other reasons (excuses - ?).

Anyway, now is a certain time when I feel motivated to profess to the world my love for all things James Bond. Apart from the brilliant books by Fleming (I've only read two though), the movies and the soundtracks for each of the films made after 1999 (those are the only ones I've seen) are superb and tread near perfection.

I saw Casino Royale again for the fourth time some days ago and was this time entranced by the opening theme 'You know my name' sung by Audioslave front man Chris Cornell. The lyrics are just so outstanding and the intro which goes with it during the opening of Casino royale is beautifully made.

I have here the opening sequence and the accompanying lyrics. Read the lyrics first and then watch the video.

You know my name

If you take a life do you know what you'll give?
Odds are, you won't like what it is
When the storm arrives, would you be seen with me?
By the merciless eyes of deceit?

I've seen angels fall from blinding heights
But you yourself are nothing so divine
Just next in line

Arm yourself because no-one else here will save you
The odds will betray you
And I will replace you
You can't deny the prize it may never fulfill you
It longs to kill you
Are you willing to die?

The coldest blood runs through my veins
You know my name

If you come inside things will not be the same
When you return to the night
And if you think you've won
You never saw me change
The game that we have been playing

I've seen diamonds cut through harder men
Than you yourself
But if you must pretend
You may meet your end

Arm yourself because no-one else here will save you
The odds will betray you
And I will replace you
You can't deny the prize it may never fulfill you
It longs to kill you
Are you willing to die?

The coldest blood runs through my veins

Try to hide your hand
Forget how to feel
(Forget how to feel)

Life is gone with just a
spin of the wheel
(Spin of the wheel)

Arm yourself because no-one else here will save you
The odds will betray you
And I will replace you
You can't deny the prize it may never fulfill you
It longs to kill you
Are you ready to die?

The coldest blood runs through my veins
You know my name
You know my name
You know my name
You know my name
You know my name
You know my name
You know my name


I'm hoarse from singing (read screaming) it all the time but I'm still far from being tired of it.
And now the video :





If you haven't seen Casino royale yet - at least you now know what you're missing.

Frankly, I can't wait for the all new 22nd Bond film 'Quantum of Solace' releasing in about a month or two. EON pushed forward the British date to 31 October during filming, while the American date was pushed back in August to 14 November. God knows when it'll be released here in India.

And now to end today's blog I have a lighthearted parody of the new film from youtube again. Hope you guys liked it as much as I did.

It made me laff.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading your blog about Daniel Craig's James Bond. I'm especially appreciative of your comments on the "You Know My Name" theme song for Casino Royal. The lyrics fit beautifully with the opening segment. Check out Chris Cornell's video for this song:

@jihad - who do you think you are, you little prick ? All you ever do is post rude comments on other people's blogs telling them they don't know how to do stuff right while at the same time exposing your insecure and dysfunctional you really are..... piece of advice - get a life dude.

Quicksilver said...

@ Di - Exactly :D

@ warriorwoman - Great video, thnx !

sten said...

Look at the producer's name -Albert R. brocolli !!?/1!

If my last name was Brocolli, I'd die from shame !

Quicksilver said...

Btw , I almost forgot, Cornell isn't Audioslave frontman now - the band broke up (*sigh*) in 2007 (i think).

But Cornell still rules.

I know exactly how that feels.

Quicksilver said...

Yeah ?

How ?

Yeah, I've done this many times in my life. I can't stand people who like to play petty politics in life. If they play around with me, I play with them and, quite often, the results aren't pretty.

It's all about biding your time and wearing masks you see. Never let the opponent realize how good you are, always project an illusion down their throats, wear the mask all the time. I wait for the perfect opportunity and then I strike. I play the odds, you see.

I do this quietly and effectively; I don't do anything bad to them, I just replace them.

Oh, and if someone is honest with me then I am honest with them; no masks, no illusions nothing.
