happy birthday dario

Dario Argento was born in Rome, Italy on September 7 1940. He is the son of producer Salvatore Argento. He began his career as a movie critic for the Rome daily newspaper "Paese Sera". A professional screenwriter by the tender age of 20, he joined Bernardo Bertolucci to write the screenplay for Sergio Leone's epic western "Once Upon A Time In The West" in 1967. Many screenplays later, Argento was signed up by Goffredo Lombardo, head of an Italian film company (Titanus) and made his directing debut in 1970 with "The Bird With The Crystal Plumage". His father Salvatore was the producer on all his films up until "Deep Red" when Claudio Argento took over. He has always taken a great interest in all aspects of film making to ensure that the end results of his films are as near to his original vision as possible. One of the first directors to see the possibilities of the steady cam and the 'luma' crane, he used them both to their full potential. He even helped with composing the music for "Suspiria". Many of his films are considered to be `giallo'. Giallo meaning yellow, which in turn came from the yellow covers of the penny-dreadful horror/thriller paperbacks that were sold in Italy. He has directed 15 films - `The Bird with the Crystal Plumage', 'The Cat O Nine Tails', 'Five Days In Milan', 'Four Flies on Grey Velvet', 'Profondo Rosso', 'Suspiria', `Inferno', 'Tenebrae', 'Phenomena', 'Opera', 'Two Evil Eyes', 'Trauma', 'The Stendhal Syndrome', 'Phantom of the Opera' and 'Non ho sonno'. He has also been involved in producing/writing films for others such as his protege Michele Soavi. Argento has also worked on three series for Italian television. In 1972, 'The Door of Darkness', in 1987 'Giallo' and 'Turno di notte' in 1988. There are also three documentaries on Argento and his films, 'Dario Argento's World of Horror', 'Dario Argento: Master of Horror (Dario Argento's World of Horror 2)' and 'The World of Dario Argento 3'.

If you take a look at bixio.com/, you'll see a lot of trailers for Dario Argento's movies using various Bixio songs. Get Bixi - o ! ;)

Therefore we wish him happy & lovely birthday!

35th anniversary of the king's legacy

Today, on 16th of August, the entire world marks 35 years since the death of the king of rock'n'roll and one of the biggest music icons ever, Elvis Presley.
Although it has already been more than one third of the century  since his sad passing away at the age of 42, his legacy hasn't weakened at all: the power of iconic figure of Elvis in the field of cultural heritage stays intact, moreover it even grows with time.
His 20-year music career was more than fruitful: he broke many of the world records in music business, including releasing 97 records in 20 years of career and spending 996 weeks on tops of music charts.

The fans and Elvis Presley Enterprises Inc. have already started worldwide organizing of year-long celebrations of the life and legacy od the r'n'r icon, whose long list of the hit-songs is hard to remember by heart: Jailhouse Rock, Love Me Tender, Suspicious Minds, I Can't Help Falling In Love With You, Viva Las Vegas are just a tiny portion of what was left behind him. 
However, it's not just the songs that marked him: an entire set of strong and iconic images and identities is related to him such as his legendary hairdo, hip-shake, lip moves, fascinating stage costumes and the attitude of a true rock star, a rebel who doesn' give a damn what the others will say, the one and only KING!

IDM Music regionally represents the copyrights for the catalogue of Elvis Presley's rich repertoire through Imagem music.
