  1. Bohemian Rhapsody Well, it was made well I guess. I enjoyed watching it. But quite forgetable. It also drives me mad how in all musical biopics managers and industry people always smile and respect egomaniacal demands and visions of young musicians like it proves them genius. I work in the music industry and in reality all these bigger-than-thou musicians would be put down quite quickly. Like in the scene where they (still nobodies) meet a big manager and he offers them his support. "What can you give us?" they say. "Maybe I can get you a tour in China," he says or something like that. "We want more," says Mercury. The managers smirks like holy-fuck-you-just-said-what-I-wanted-to-hear. NOPE. In reality he would get up and walk the fuck off, because these kind of statements indicate a lot of problems down the road. The Death Of Stalin Wow, I didn't know Armando Iannucci directed this beforehand, but I guessed it while watching it. Nobody does satire better than him. Hilarious and important. No wonder it's banned in Russia.
  2. Amateur incoming... I've tried my hand in animation this week. Just seeing if I can make anything move: Learning how to make a character walk:
  3. I'm cautious... Flying Lotus is another one of used-to-be-my-favorite artists who made a pinnacle album and then fell (like Clark with his magnificent "Totems Flare" and then lost his touch ... well many on WATMM share this sentiment with me :( ). Flying Lotus also made stellar "Los Angeles" and "Cosmogramma" and then became boring. I think the main problem is in his lack of riffs. "Until The Quiet Comes" and "You're Dead!" both had unimaginative riffs (unlike previous albums which were packed with strong melodies), so FlyLo builds his tracks around jazzy chords and limpy drums and of course tracks quickly fizzle out because they don't have enough gravity. When he was still hip-hop minded he NEEDED to make a strong theme for his beats because they were loop based and how the hell can you drive a 3-minute loop without a riff? I think many artists need to realize that there was a point in them making simpler songs with more banging drums and melodies - that that wasn't just their amateur phase but indeed a more focused and effective phase. Many of these artists never really come full circle back to their bangers or when they do they make them consciously and with too much of an effort.
  4. Yesterday I thought I lost keys to my job and my girl's place. My GF found them in her purse because I put my key stack in there after going to a theatre play and not wanting to have a bulge in my pants. Today I forgot my computer mouse so I had to drive back home to get it. Had nice 25 minutes for myself.
  5. It's not, but it's better than his previous one. He started to lose me with his second full-length which still had some bangers, but the third one ... yawn. This one sounds like a Christmas album which is not necessarily bad. Nice melodies, big chords, clear and tasty production. Still, something's missing which I think is the product of James never shutting the f up anymore. When he made instrumental music it was BANGING, but now that he abandoned this side of his creativity, his arrangements started to lack. Everything is based on his voice which doesn't hold up for the whole album. 3/5
  6. I really like this! Followed
  7. The video that was the genesis of this thread: Few gold jazzes: This guy's impressive just because of how nice he is Bunch of kids for real, kicking the shit out of musicians in the past and future
  8. Hey man, this is WATMM, the safe zone for harsh sampled percussion and weird time sigs :) I like it! The second track truly sounds like something from a Zelda game. The third track also has a retro feel, with the Casio-like chords. Good shit. Btw, the cover is phenomenal. Your photo?
  9. Call Me By Your Name I truly enjoyed it, a very nice representation of love, also nice to see a gay film without the arbitrary social note. I have to see what else this filmmaker made.
  10. To be honest I'm only not listening to the leak because I suck at pirating and can't find a copy on the interwebz.
  11. Just watched a few YT videos on this, looks pretty deep. I like complex games - but I know that with my 2 sons in the house there is no way I could leave this set up on the kitchen table and it would still be there when I got home from work. Its hard enough keeping vinyl out of harms way- I built a special side board in our lounge to keep my decks and records out of reach until they are old enough to understand / respect them :D The game really is full of enjoyment so I still recommend it. Maybe build another side board in your lounge for this purpose? I personally wound't divide my play time into parts so you can always put everything in the box after playing it through.
  12. I don't see what's stopping you :D As far as I know it's an unspoiled theme.
  13. Alright, just chiming in to say I purchased Mage Knight and have played 2 solo games 2 days in row. Holy cow. What a game. I don't think I had a better experience playing a board game yet, even though I played it solo and checked the rules about 50 times through it. I know I made at least 2 mistakes. Every little part of the game has an exception rule to the whole system and at first it's just frustrating. Still, I took my time and I think I got it all. The puzzle aspect of what you can do with your hand is sooooo soooooooo satisfying and the growth of your character is also soooooo good. I went to a dungeon late in the game just so I could kick some dungeon ass because these monsters were so hard for me in the early game. I trained at a monestary to get some special actions and then I burned the monastery the next turn. I tried to conquer a big city and of course got the shit beaten out of me. Then the game ended and I didn't succeed to finish my goal. But I can't wait to have a large table and 4 hours to spare on disposale again.
