Wasn’t “Cup Fu Caking” Much Better Than This?

So for me to take shots at Emmy Rossum’s song is not quite fair, since as far as I knew till now she’s an actress who I know mostly through GFY (and, I see, Mystic River), but…

…is her devotion to Enya so great that she ripped off her accent? And diction? Why do I know what Enya’s action and diction sound like? I suppose I shouldn’t bother pointing out that “circles” and “purpose” is one of the worst rhymes ever, but hey! something not obvious! it sounds like that song consists entirely of (processed) sounds made by the human voice. Um, I may have to revaluate this.

Everybody was cup fu caking
Yeah, those cats were baking
They had their sprinkles shaking
It was a big undertaking

Um, what?

Can anyone explain what’s going on here? (NSFW bit around 2:07.)

Which of the following best describes the forthcoming Julie Taymor movie, Across the Universe?

(a) The concept of the Sgt. Pepper’s movie, the social commentary of Forrest Gump.
(b) Mamma Mia! on film, with pretensions.
(c) Van Wilder 3: Taj’s Revenge.

Early indications were that meddling studio executives had cut about half an hour from it; unfortunately, they seem to have restored the lost footage rather than cut the rest. I would say that they could cut it to three minutes, but really, even at that length it’d be too long. I’ve walked out on the trailer. (Perfectly timed for a bathroom break!)

I can’t wait to see how they’re going to tie it all together.
