Aphex Twin Re-Emerges, Hypes Something via Blimp and Announces New Album

We live in troubled times. There’s a threat within music that it’s being rapidly hollowed out by artists seeking commercial gain moreso than creating something of substance out of one’s love of music. Unfortunately, the music we hear on the radio becomes increasingly more saturated and devoid of any creativity as time goes by.

It’s at such low points in Hollywood blockbusters that we would call…

PCWB’s Cinematic Nirvana #6: Stop Making Sense

Stop Making Sense (1984, dir. Jonathan Demme)

Home – is where I want to be
But I guess I’m already there
I come home she lifted up her wings
I Guess that this must be the place
I can’t tell one from the other
Did I find you, or you find me?
There was a time Before we were born
If someone asks, this is where I’ll be … where I’ll be

There have been some great concert films over time; The Last…

Entering the Videodrome #3: Janelle Monae’s “Cold War”

The concept of a close up shot music video isn’t anything new.

One of the more famous examples of a close up take video is Sinead O’Connor’s “Nothing Compares 2 U” which could arguably be one of the more famous videos of all time. In that video, the shot everyone remembers is when O’Connor sings a line that alludes her troubled relationship with her mother (trivia note: it was a slight change…

So my friends and I are picking our top 20 episodes of The Simpsons

Here, in order, is my provisional top 20 list.

  1. Homer’s Enemy
  2. Last Exit to Springfield
  3. A Fish Called Selma
  4. You Only Move Twice
  5. Cape Feare
  6. Lemon of Troy
  7. $pringfield
  8. Lisa’s Substitute 
  9. Homer at the Bat
  10. A Streetcar Named Marge
  11. The Homer They Fall
  12. Itchy and Scratchy Land
  13. Radio Bart
  14. Marge vs. the Monorail 
  15. Bart the General
  16. Homer Badman
  17. Simpsoncalifragilisticexpiala(Annoyed Grunt)cious
  18. Homer vs. the Eighteenth Amendment
  19. El Viaje Misterioso de Nuestro Jomer 
  20. Burns Verkaufen der Kraftwerk

I think there’s some tinkering to be done with it, but I’m fairly certain the top 5 are concrete. I wasn’t a believer in just how brilliant Last Exit was until I finally watched it again.That said, I think Homer’s Enemy is the weirdest written and darkest episode ever made and it’s my personal favourite.

Well, I’ve found my meaning to exist. I need to spend the rest of my life recreating opening credits from 80s sitcoms shot-for-shot.

Entering the Videodrome #2: Daft Punk’s “Around The World”

A part of me would like to remember listening to Daft Punk’s debut album “Homework” when it first came out in 1997, but deep down I know that that did not happen for many years to come. Looking back on the album and time in which it came out, it can in some ways be considered one of the more influential Electronic albums of all time and the album that really sparked interest in the developing…
