Trent Reznor on Scoring Gone Girl

I can't believe I haven't seen Gone Girl yet! Friday, release day, found me cursing mysterious aches and pains that felt like I'd been kicked in the ribs. I double checked with my hubby and he swears he didn't attack me in the night. Anyway, while I was concerned I wasn't going to be able to see Gone Girl, I was even more anxious that the mysterious pains would hinder said husband and I from trekking up north this weekend. The plan was to escape the Los Angeles heat with a trip to Yosemite and Sequoia National Park. 

I'm happy to report that I awoke yesterday feeling pretty dang terrific so I caught up on some chores I'd left by the wayside, and we took off Saturday afternoon. That being said I feel a little left out, like the whole world has seen Gone Girl already and I'm the only one who hasn't. Our son Russell, who also read the book, saw it and loved it. He saw a 10:45pm showing and said he broke into applause at the end of the movie and was kind of embarrassed to find he was the only person clapping. I'm thinking everyone else was too exhausted to clap since it was after one in the morning when it let out. He had a hunch though that the rest of the audience, while they laughed and had a blast throughout the film, were maybe less than thrilled with how it played out at the end. That's all he would tell me, not wanting to spoil my viewing pleasure, so I'm hoping I'll see it either while we're on the road or a couple of days from now when we're back home in L.A.  

That brings me to my weekly Sunday Slacker video, an interview with Trent Reznor, the 9 Inch Nails front man who composed the score.
