Favorite Scene Friday! Submarine: No. You Don’t Know Me. You Don’t Know Me At All.

You’ll have to excuse me on this beautiful FSF for I have the Arctic Monkeys on the brain. Tomorrow is Record Store Day and I’ve been mentally preparing all week for an important mission. Unfortunately, I can’t go into detail because you could be my competition and truly if I tell you, I would be required to kill you (that's not really a threat). If all goes as planned, hopefully I’ll accomplish said mission and report back to you with great news and pictures to prove it. Well to be honest, it’ll basically be great news for me, but you can live vicariously through me if you want to. Anyways to the scene.

Technically today’s selection isn’t a scene; I guess you could say it’s a collection of scenes accompanied by the voice of Mr. Alex Turner. On a side note, the soundtrack, written and performed by Turner, is a perfect marriage between music and film. The scenes come from the underrated 2010 film Submarine. Written by Richard Ayoade and Joe Dunthorne, directed by Ayoade and starring Craig Roberts, it’s a story about Oliver Tate (Roberts) and his quest to lose his virginity as well as his effort to end the relationship between his mother and the cheesy next door neighbor. By the way if you haven’t seen the film and want some insight, I suggest you check out Robert’s review from July 2011.

I hope you enjoy your Friday, the scenes and the song! Wish me luck.


  1. Just got back from Record Store Day and acquired the Public Image Ltd. single. Hope your quest is successful.

  2. Congrats! Yes I'm now 1 of 1340. Yes!!!

  3. Submarine was my 2nd favorite soundtrack last year, in case you're wondering what no 1 was, it's Drive

    1. Robert & Tiffany, not sure about Nick, really like the Drive soundtrack as well. I think I need to give it another chance. Thanks for the read.

  4. "My mother is worried I have mental problems. I found a book about teenage paranoid delusions during a routine search of my parents' bedroom."
