  1. Some mention of COIL happens in this interview, and Hawthonn would be recommended to fans of COIL without a doubt... https://arvozylo.medium.com/interview-with-hawthonn-no-part-of-it-interview-series-32-248631ce5a9a
  2. I'm not an expert, but I am very particular. Basically all of these tracks have something that stands out to me, like an odd sound structure, a quirkiness, or a particularly apt melody. If this might be your thing, feel free.
  3. I made an italo disco playlist. I'm not an expert, but I am very particular.
  4. I was only really annoyed by the music that wasn't period specific, although the concept of not having period-specific music is fine with me, I didn't like the choices. Same goes for Hateful Eight. I also didn't think QT playing a cowboy was good. Took me out of the mythology a bit, because that dude does not look much like a cowboy no matter how you dress him. Other than that, I think all of the movies are great, although I did dismiss them before seeing them for some years. It's sort of advertised as cheesy, but Django Unchained was a good story, much less cheesy than the trailer for it, for what it's worth.
  5. My favorites: Scatology Horse Rotorvator Musick To Play In The Dark 1 & 2 Time Machines (excellent drone, if you're into that) The Ape of Naples Love's Secret Domain is an essential too.
  6. For some reason I never kept up with them after this one. The W is pretty good. Will be catching up to everything after shortly...

  8. Decent newer snotty punk, not anything new, but with all the right points of reference.
  9. I'm mostly adding download codes that people have given me lately, because I have to save money, but otherwise I like to think I got good taste....... ... https://bandcamp.com/nopartofit
  10. I'm not usually a fan of live albums, but honestly, PUBLIC CASTRATION IS A GOOD IDEA is the best of their louder early material. By far.
  11. I wrote a little article about conspiracy theories in the music business, and also mention the conspiracy theories that I believe, which are PEDOGATE, and I'm not sure I will ever believe that JFK was killed by Oswald. https://arvozylo.medium.com/conspiracy-fatigue-c4b941596d02
  12. I am trying so hard to be happy with my original CD pressing! It is hard!!! I love the art... but times are tight... I also have that $70 poster in storage, still in plastic. I think I bought it for $50 some years ago.
  13. Gonna write about Lady Gaga tomorrow! Honestly, I got to a point where I realized I'm giving a lot of free content to facebook, so I decided to write articles instead. But I will follow this discussion whether people read the article or not. I've actually grown to like some of Curry's music, and find him somewhat fascinating.
  14. I may have found work from home, I start today, but I'm not positive it is not a scam of some sort. If it's not a scam, it's still part time, but it would be an excellent job. Seems too good to be true, but still looking for more work. Don't have a degree, don't know excel, can't really do sales. Wishing for more work from home options, like stuffing envelopes or something. Apparently my wpm is only 70. Can't seem to find transcription work that isn't for pennies. Etc.
  15. I have mixed feelings about Tim Curry continuing to make public appearances and also apparently a few roles here and there, after having suffered a stroke. He's had a pretty colorful career, and I can't help but wonder if he is doing it for the love or the money. One would hope he'd be able to live off of royalties or some other sort of retirement plan. On the other hand, I do admire his courage, and I'm quite sure it's hard work for him to be as functional as he is. I wrote a little article about it, if anyone is interested: https://vocal.media/geeks/tim-curry-s-time-warp-again
  16. Yeah, not a huge fan of planet terror.
  17. I recall him saying he will do a total of 10 movies, then maybe move on to focusing on writing.
  18. Nothing really, just that it was his most superficial film with less subtext and symbolism, and the fact that it was followed by two or three period-specific films made me assume it was going to be cheesy, plus Ennio Morricone said he was sloppy with the scores, so I didn't run to the theaters. But I do love all of his films now. I came back around for Hollywood, and caught up. I loved ...Hollywood. Laughed my ass off in the theaters.
  19. His ties to Weinstein, his choice words about Polanski's rape victim in an interview with Howard Stern some years ago, his responsibility for Uma Thurman being injured during the filming of Kill Bill....
  20. Surprised this forum didn't have more on him, especially with the relatively recent gossip. I personally have returned to his work, after ignoring him since Death Proof. It was nothing personal, I just didn't think period pieces would fit him well, and I remember Ennio Morricone ripping on him, which was a big strike against him for me. Morricone has backpedaled at times, but not all the time, as far as I can see. Anyway, I wrote an article about him, and the hack VS. genius argument. https://vocal.media/geeks/on-quentin-tarantino-s-legacy-and-the-shadow-it-casts
  21. FWIW, I wrote a bit of blather on this subject, with the final bit of impetus stemming from this thread. Netflix is not being held accountable for the amount of streams they claim to have on any given film, much less an accurate royalties system. They are trying to "buyout" rights to music from composers, rather than giving them royalties per stream. The buyout situation tends to not even cover the costs of production. https://vocal.media/beat/encountering-the-future-of-streaming-music-as-a-utility
  22. I'm not sure what meme that is. It just seems inevitable to me that bandcamp will get in on the streaming. Anyone can, but I'm curious what Amazon, Spotify, etc do to prevent their competition from growing. I've tried Beats Music because they pay their artists better, but they pandered to not only the mainstream, but also the college radio top 30 vibes, but not the underground in really any capacity. I guess it is the underground's fault for not submitting their music, but I do think a better advertising campaign could fix that problem. I'll look into the rest of it, thanks.
