Whitney

In Review: Fantastic Fest 2017

fantasticfest2017-ANNA-AND-THE-APOCALPYSE

Hey friends, here’s what I saw at Fantastic Fest.  I caught 20 films!  I actually wanted to see 30, but I got hit with a sinus infection and it totally derailed me for most of the fest.  Still, I’m calling this year a win.  Read on. PS – You can check out which films won [...]

Hip Hop Hooray (Leah)

HHHF

How nice of you to stop by in between debating how the NFL got linked with the military, donating to Puerto Rico, Houston, Florida, and Mexico, and wondering how our government is going to be embroiled in scandal next week!  Sometimes it feels like the apocalypse is speedily on its way to our door, which [...]

Protomartyr

p

The new Protomartyr album, Relatives In Descent, will be out tomorrow, and to get you further jazzed for its release the band has just put out a new single.  It’s a straight up rocker, which I think is a nice change of pace for them.  Enjoy. PS – Don’t miss the band at Barracuda on [...]

LIV

Every time a new LIV song gets released I think there’s also going be word on when to expect an actual album, but it never happens.  Will we just get singles forever?  Perhaps.  Things could be worse, I suppose.  Below is their latest song, a tribute to Lykke Li’s mother and Andrew Wyatt’s father, who [...]

Screaming Females

screamingfemales

I cheered last week when I saw that Screaming Females had a new single.  However, I then followed that up with a frown when I realized it was limited-run 7″ (like way limited – 24 copies!) that was only going to be available in a record store in New Jersey.  Thankfully the band has now [...]

Movie Breakdown: Kingsman – The Golden Circle (Noah)

Kingsman-Golden-Circle-Comic-Con-Panel-Details-Sdcc

Pre-Screening Stance: I’m still smarting from the distasteful end of the mostly enjoyable original flick. I know, I know, it’s just one line about anal sex, but I’m a sensitive old man. Post-Screening Ramble: Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman – The Golden Circle follows the rules of the sequel just about to a tee. Where in the [...]

Movie Breakdown: Kingsman – The Golden Circle

kingsman3

Pre-Screening Stance: If you ask me, Matthew Vaughn has never directed a bad film.  With that being said, there’s something about Kingsman – The Golden Circle that seems off.  Here’s hoping that its flat trailers have been hiding all of the best parts. Post-Screening Ramble: I went into Kingsman – The Golden Circle not expecting much [...]

Show Of The Week

ShowOTWF

I’m out of play on the show-front this week, as Fantastic Fest will be eating up all of my time.  If I were available though, I’d definitely hone in on seeing Balmorhea.  The nice thing here is that there’s actually three chances to see them.  The first shot is Thursday night (with Will Johnson) at [...]
