So, I have a huge love for "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World" after watching the film for the first time in summer 2013 and was really excited to get the Blu-Ray for Christmas the same year (it was all I wanted, screw iPhones or PS4s). This video, featuring the beautiful Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Ramona Flowers as she poses in several costumes in a stunning screen test (seriously, MEW just looks breathtaking as Ramona in this video), introduced me to this lovely piece of music composed for the film by Nigel Godrich:
I think (I should know, it is one of my favourite films after all) the music can be heard whilst Scott and Ramona are walking together in the snow before the encounter with Lucas Lee and the whole atmosphere created by this piece of music ("Love Me Some Walking") is so tranquil and sedative (little nod to what Scott says to Ramona at this point in the film, yeah? wink wink).
Because "Scott Pilgrim" is set in Canada, and there is snow in the film, hearing the music will always remind me of a very calm, white and magical winter and I was really disappointed when it hardly snowed this winter as I had plans on simply walking through the snow, with my earphones in and shuffling along to "Love Me Some Walking" whilst enjoying the scenery and pretending I'm Scott Pilgrlim or imaginatively indulging in his world. The lack of snow may have firstly been due to the fact that I live in England where, if it snows, it's at odd times and the snow either stays a while or just doesn't stay at all, and secondly due to the fact that I was living at university most of the time during winter, living just a little more down south from home where it's a little warmer than living in the north.
I just really hope that this winter I can live my silly little dream of pretending I'm living in the world of Scott Pilgrim (or Toronto, Canada I guess...). Damn you, Global Warming!
