Re: New Music Friday - 7/20/18

I'm checking out the new Optiganally Yours album "O.Y. in Hi-Fi", sounds pretty good so far. https://www.pandora.com/artist/optiganally-yours/oy-in-hi-fi/ALtpxP4rVnPmblP The singer (not sure if Rob Crow is singing or if it's the other guy?) sounds so much like Brother Machine to me, at le...

George Lucas: A Life

George Lucas: A Life by Brian Jay Jones I read this recently and enjoyed an unauthorized look into Lucas' creative process and how his quest to get his ideas out of his head and onto the screen led to the creation of so many things we take for granted today (Star Wars, Pixar, Digital Editing). Lots ...

I've played through this game a few times online as they have been developing it and find it fun and a good speed for my skills (minimal). Lots to do, and still growing.

I just checked out a couple of episodes of this podcast, Lita Ford and Neko Case. The production quality isn't great, they are clearly talking on the phone, but the content was pretty good. I'm going to check out more episodes. If you are interested in hearing artists talk about their art, check thi...

Re: Lieutenant Minor Wants To See (Major Arcana reviews)

add - Lovely acoustic guitar intro. I like how the electric piano comes in halfway through the first verse. That's a nice and subtle change. Overall, feels a bit like the softer side of add and I like it! BSS - Lots to love about this track. I enjoyed the heavy organ that reminds me a bit of Iron Bu...

Ant Man and the Wasp

I saw this movie over the weekend and it was really fun! Lots of good San Francisco locations, effects were well integrated, and a good balance of action and humor. It isn't a spoiler to remind you to stay until the end!

Incredibles 2

Wow. I really enjoyed this movie. Good twist on the original premise and development of the characters. Not a big surprise when the villain is revealed, but still an enjoyable turn of events. Visuals and music are great! Try to get the Elastigirl theme song out of your head! Go see this movie!

The Snail Mail record is really good. I'll have to check out Gruff Rhys.

I didn't think Ghost would be my thing, but I actually dug it. It was more melodic than I expected. Thanks for mentioning it.
