  1. Yes I know resurrecting a dead topic but TIL that you can actually get the Run the Place Red remix from the Bug's bandcamp. https://thebugmusic.bandcamp.com/track/run-the-place-red-afx-smojphace-remix-ft-daddy-freddy Njoy
  2. Its a combo of these. We tried to tie the rotting carcasses of our murdered servantas together and waggle them rhythmically but game of telephone and all that. No, but srsly, my wife goes to bed w the baby and then usually texts me to bring her food and stuff. Like ringing a bell but won't disturb a slumbering child 🍻🙏🤟
  3. Aight, so, the other night I said to my wife: "Hey hon, I'm going to the store later, do you want anything?" It seemed like such an innocuous request. Little did I know it would turn into my own personal Kobashi Maru. "Oh, yeah, could you pick me up some cookies?" Ok, so far, so good. "But, um, don't get me any of the cookies you usually do." Ah... ok, so- "Oh, and don't get me any of the types of cookies I usually like." I could feed my brain beginning to lock down, the equivalent of asking a robot in 1980's sci fi to resolve a paradox. I thought about asking for additional guidance but
  4. So, this is pretty cool. Got chosen as a runner-up in this remix contest - lots of interesting takes on this track (including a lot of talented folks) so pretty happy to be in the final compilation. A good experience too - particularly 'cause this is not my usual genre of music so was fun trying to figure out how to put a personal stamp on it. Links to the track on my Soundclown and the artists post with the compilation (worth clicking through to hear the other remixes - my m8 (Broken Cradle) got 2nd and his version is FANTASTIC)
  5. hahaha, yeah that's the one. Didn't mention that specific part b/c I forgot u can use spoiler tags lol ... my brain broke when that shit happened. pure nightmare fuel... Oh, also, the most terrifying horror movie I won't be watching this season is the presidential debates amirite?
  6. 😵 I can't even... I do think the reason Lynch's horror stuff scares me so is that it does seem so similar to my nightmares when I have them... it's like he just dropped in and started filming... *shivers*
  7. Lotsa really great movies on this thread. Horror is so weird - like, I feel like some of these movies, if you aren't in the right mood, you won't find them compelling at all (ex. I know Hereditary is supposed to be god-tier new horror, but I literally fell asleep in the theater watching it). Also, some movies I found scary AF the first time I watched them, but now I find them laughable (Session 9 comes to mind). ANyWAY, won't get around to all these, but here's the one's I'd probably watch again if I had the time: Grave Encounters I & II - PM my fave found footage horror flicks
  8. First off, it's pretty awesome you have a girl that is not only willing to watch a movie like this with you, but also who wants to talk about it for hours afterwards. That's awesome! (my wife would rather eat rusty nails than watch a film like that). I feel like your response to the movie is kinda perfect? I mean, in some ways as literary and wordy as the movie can be, at the heart it seems to be about, in some ways, words being insufficient and words being lost. More a feeling, like you say. Glad to see you and QP liked it - feel like it's not for everyone but for a certain person it
  9. Obligatory posting on the 666 page. Seems appropriate that a Paris Hilton is on this one yah? Watched I'm Thinking About Ending Things. I think this one is doing itself a disservice by being marketed as a horror film. I guess, in the truest sense of the word it's "horror" as it's (trying to speak vaguely here on purpose) about very real horrors of the mind more than, say, a jump scare film (or even a slow burn A24 or whatever It follows sort of thing). Hyper literary, meta, but what do you expect from a Kaufman film? Impeccably acted on all parts, very much a work of "art" as opposed to p
  10. It's ridiculously good Ha! That vid is great. The sub I got wouldn't do nearly this sort of thing but it still hits harder than anything I've had in a car before. I left Cypress Hill Temples of Boom in the CD player accidentally and apparently the installer used that as his primary reference point ^O^ Seriously though, I think many of my favorite music listening experiences happened in a car. Lots of fond memories listening to (what are now) classic warp records (Go Plastic, Drukqs, etc.) while driving around town doing nothing but... driving around town and listening to music. ..
  11. So, I uh, might have somewhat spur of the moment (but not really, been wanting this for a while) put a system in my car. Was initially going to just upgrade speakers but my wife talked me into going more full throttle. I don't think she exactly expected a sub that would take up 1/4 of the trunk, but here we are. Anyway, holy fucking shit this EP fucking kills w/ a proper system, particularly the sub-frequencies. 1st 44 in particular feels like you are steadily punching your way through 14 different reality membranes on your way to nirvana. Also, unrelated, but the Heorge Garrison stuff (
  12. Yeah... I don't know if you can watch S3 without the earlier seasons though? I mean, whether or not you agree with that Twin Perfect fella, I did think there is some commentary on expectations carried through to S3 from watchers of the earlier seasons. Also, I mean, stuff like the waiting for Coop and Ed and Norma payoff.... you kinda miss context for all sortsa stuff. Anyway of course I'm biased. Guess I'd say if you HAD to skip something I agree it shouldn't be the first season and if you did want to launch her into TP S3 at the very least FWWM is mandatory viewing. My 2 cents
  13. Happy dirthbay, R to the DJ!
  14. Man, really love the synths/rising action that hits around 2 minutes into this piece, moving through the section where the beat drops out. Also like that the end here is beatless, and strips things down to the base melody. I had a visceral, emotional reaction to this. It truly moved me. I could see adding something to the end of this like you're thinking, maybe some sort of chime/mallet sounds w/ a lush delay? However, could also see you pruning this a bit and shortening everything up a bit. As is, think it's great - again, it hit me in my heart, which (to me) is the most important thing
  15. Love the bit around 2:47 where this turns into the audio equivalent of a cronenburg movie. OK, that's a bit overstating it, but it was an unexpected left turn into something ...darker than I was expecting. I've mixed feelings about the ending. I kind of want this to trail off into something ethereal but it kind of does the opposite. It makes me uncomfortable, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Overall, aces. Like that even slower stuff like this of yours sounds as good as the more hectic tunes.
  16. Not at all. I just find the idea of having Mullholland as an in flight movie amusing (bordering on the hilarious). Like, imagining a cabin full of people held captive w/any Lynch film? Tickles me. Oh, gah, like, what if it was an intercontinental flight and they did a Lynch marathon? Peoples faces would melt off. Its a bit diff nowadays w the movies being self selected to a degree and on the seatbacks. Sort of loses the charm of the in-flight communal experience. Also, makes the idea of lynch on the flight slightly less amusing (but only slightly)
  17. I soooo want to fly on whatever airline is playing Mulholland as an in-flight movie. Particularly if they still presented them as forced viewing for the entire plane....
  18. FWIW when I saw this (what is now years ago) it truly moved me. It helped that I went in with 0 expectations though - going in expecting this to be something other than a very weird, indy take on horror is going to leave you disappointed. It's much more a meditation in love, infatuation, and maybe sacrifice and mortality. I legit cried though, it kind of broke my heart in the best way possible. I'm pretty emo tho, so totally up my alley *runs to to bedroom, slams door* *puts on new Taylor Swift album* *weeps loudly*
  19. pretty effin tight man. Love the line that comes in around 1:35 w/ the building drums and bass. Transition around 2:35 is heavenly. The drop in around 3:20 is a nice bridge to some excellent drumwork in the latter half. Nice to hear some uplifting sounds in a time of such dark haziness.
  20. Actually going to go the opposite here. I quite like the variation, think you could even do more to break it up by adding a bridge section (just a thought) - though I'm extremely ADD so I like a lot of activity. Oh also wanted to say that the goal of finishing a track a week is inspiring. Recently been chatting with a variety of people about this (working on quantity as a method of continual improvment vs getting stuck on one ot two tracks .. or even just the idea of one or two tracks but not doing anything). Anyway, just wanted to say props and the results here show that this is a good
  21. Spectral Disorder - the T3 (serious) review At the outset of 2020, I made a claim that this album was my most anticipated release of the year. This presaged the ongoing pandemic and steady disintegration of my country into what feels like, and perhaps is, a fascist state. How prescient is it, then, that this album, composed well before the current maelstrom of cognitive dissonance generating events, would arrive at just the right time to provide - if not a soundtrack, at least some comfort: there is beauty to be found, even in the chaos of disorder. While the prior Melted album gene
  22. Actually finished it a bit ago, but deserves (another) mention: Devs - spectacular. Hovering around one of my fave things ever, stuck the landing in the last episode in a way that I didn't think was possible. No spoilers, just going to say to say I constantly vacillate on how I feel about the last part in the best way possible. Recently finished watching Legion. Hol-EE crap. If I were to pick a show to rank purely on style I think Legion might be up there as the tippity top one. I had watched S1 ages ago and enjoyed it, but feel like S2 elevated the show to another level. S3 does some am
  23. It's going to suck when she survives the Corona pandemic but then dies 2 months later of unchecked melanoma...
  24. FYI, jazzb7 for some, but Danielewski released three scripts for episodes of a House of Leaves television series. This was after, apparently, talks fell through at a major streaming service. He decided to test the waters of interest. . . they are very good, very HOL so. .. yeah, if it's your thing, def worth the 9 bucks. It's on Patreon but the subscription modeling is confusing/there are issues - buy it on (of all places) Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/listing/759803499/3-episodesteleplays-of-house-of-leaves
