  1. maybe, but it doesn't change the fact that Yessland came out after Yellow Calx and parts of it sound remarkably similar. peace out

  4. oh shit, totally jesus christ can this shit get any more contrived #referencial90skidscommercialsvideogameslol It's just music, man. Take it easy! its just music but he's still right a fuck, i mean its almost like we're talking like the Quietus, thats not a good look for a regular person 'naturally expressing themselves', feel me?
  5. yeah but from Revenge of the Sith to New Hope it still doesn't add up how the republic's headquarters were a major city/hub well known throughout the galaxy, at no point in Revenge does a character say that they needed to hide the entire existence of the Jedi, and even if you could speculate that happened (fanboy leap) it would have likely been impossible to cover up something of the magnitude of the jedi order there.
  6. they missed an opportunity to turn the story into a new cold war spy drama, where the son goes to Russia to assassinate vladimir putin with a knockout punch in revenge for his dad in Rocky IV
  7. its crazy that they 'wiped the canon' of the expanded universe but embraced the bottom of the barrel clone wars saga that came out of the prequel universe (yeah i know Obi wan mentions it in new hope, but no way he was mentioning something like what george lucas lazily thought of later). Red Letter Media did a great job on the recent speculation video of reinforcing how absurd it is that 'jedis have fallen into legend' already in Episode IV a new hope, when there was literally a giant building/temple in the middle of the city of their academy and library a mere 30 years prior. Remember that scene in New Hope where the guy in the star destroyer tells Darth Vadar he's too obsessed with 'ancient magic' or some shit, isn't that a weird thing to say for someone who probably was alive during the time when jedis using the force fought the clone wars? So not only does it not make sense for Luke and others to find jedis so mysterious in New Hope, it makes even less sense now in Force Awakens. The prequels irreparably fucked up the basic logic of the campy story Lucas originally laid out in the first trilogy. The real ballsy move would have been to erase both the prequel/clone wars universe and the expanded universe at the same time, otherwise its still extremely problematic
  8. glad you mentioned 28 days later since i'd argue that movie holds up incredibly well for a couple of reasons (ones that jump to my mind at least) - they showed that if zombie blood was infectious (as it is in walking dead) that getting any on you is not a smart idea. The part where the droplet of blood falls right onto the guy's eye was pretty genius. - the 'bad guys' of 28 days later weren't just generic 'we want power' Governor style bad people, they were sex starved military brats who wanted to repopulate the world and hold females captive as sex slaves. Pretty clear cut and realistic motive. To me the lack of sexual assault or even borderline rapey stuff in Walking Dead in and of itself is unrealistic. Any remotely good looking or fertile female in an apocalyptic situation would be in danger
  9. that was nice would like to see an unedited version of that, part of thinks it might be.... faek (not entirely but partly)
  10. really sad news, huge inspiration (well more like I completely unabashedly ripped him off) for the entire post 2005 recordlabelrecords aesthetic some of his stuff could be construed as flakey new age psychedelic art by some maybe, but for me his stuff was coming from a very special place that no other artist has really captured. its always been really hard to find high resolution version or posters/prints of his stuff, he never got the same level of following as like Alex Grey or other psychedelic artists.
  11. nice tight/smallish size room, thats the way i like it. you'd be surprised how many great sound systems here in san francisco/bay area are wasted by overly large spaces. How much do you think the brick walls fucks up the clarity? like are there noticeable reflections in the front? I almost holed up a renegade venue out here in a very similar looking brick hallway type space that was a basement, this looks like its in a basement as well (?)
  12. if i accidentally killed Bruce Lee's son on the set of a 90s goth movie I'd be making Gods of Egypt too
  13. but all other zombie movies even shitty ones don't have these types of inconsistencies. Its pretty remarkable how 'gritty' the walking dead universe is portraying itself with such unrealistic behavior, more unrealistic than say ZombieLand starring jessie Eisenberg. If Walking Dead was tongue in cheek I'd forgive it, but the ultra serious tone combined with very poor writing is a show implosion that is unstoppable.
  14. woah nice to see an artist taking on Modey's concept and getting some net traction. Watmm delivers this kinda shit on a regular basis, pretty cool
  15. the show's 'rules' actually illustrate how poorly written it is, if fire kills them as you say why wouldn't they just pour gasoline on the entire herd in the quarry and burn them the fuck up? by the time they even walked towards forrest or trees they'd probably already be dead. Secondly if we already know from the prison season that zombies can infect you with their fingernails/scratching you why is nobody ever afraid of hand to hand combat with zombies? Its fucking stupid.
  16. i would kick Aphex and Eno off the label for being anti-West terrorist/jihadi sympathizers and make !!! my top priority, giving them as much goddam thigh high shorts as possible to ruin all brit teenagers sexuality in a devastating irreparable way additionally I would hire Vincent Gallo to psychicly assault Rustie on camera
  17. Wanda Group, never heard of it just checked it out for the first time. Interesting mixture of sort of 80s early 90s post industrial tropes mixed with a bit of clicks and cuts minimal techno school. Not sure what to think of it but i would say it falls a bit more into the normal category than Dalglish (imo). the fake vinyl crackling noise all over this record Get involved in My throat is a bit funny, but its not bad
  18. not sure about right now but I can list a shit load of crucial IDM and spinoff artists that rarely get talked about in here starting with Farmers Manual (Gescom minidisc owes a lot to their Explorers WE album). Let me know if you want a detailed list, watmm has never been very good on the whole at mining their own obscure electronic music palette (save for a few hobbyists in the forum)
  19. definitely not, since music press practically made OPN who he is + the authority /esteem/ and pretentious light show music press has become he's wise to take it as serious as fuck .
  20. just kill it finally Ridley and make more horrible unwatchable movies with Cameron Diaz rubbing her pussy on a windshield https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j636nm65i7k
  21. i thought red letter media did a pretty good job of speculating. On the ice planet shot you can clearly see a Death Star like trench (at first I thought it was a giant wall) during the xwing battle and you also see the forrest of the same ice planet burning, which implies that the rumor that it's a new death star disguised as an ice planet is true, and that it somehow cracks open revealing the weapon. apparently the new weapon can destroy entire star systems not just planets. If any of the speculation 'beat for beat' rhyming stuff Red Letter speculated is true, we're kind of in trouble tbh and I really hope JJ watched that ( as he watched the Phantom Menance review, hell thats how I heard of it when he tweeted it out). They basically speculate convincingly that The Force Awakens will be a studio safe beat for beat recreation of the story themes and events from New Hope. Actually makes a lot of sense for Disney not to allow something more weird and JJ/red herring to come out of the Episode VII
  22. the last episode was amazing, it reminded me of Synecdoche
  23. that statement doesn't even make sense, i wouldn't characterize his music as avant-garde. Its weird pop music, especially G.O.D. His older stuff was extremely derivative of 70s Synth pioneers like Tangerine Dream, so you could logically make the argument that a lot of his popularity was based around an entire generation of people not being exposed to stuff like TD, that OPN's early music sounded very fresh to them because they didn't hear much else like it, or that it felt vaguely 'nostalgic' without the same context people who grew up in the 70s or 80s had (which arguably is what Vaporewave is based on, a sense of misplaced and idealized nostalgia portrayed by people who did not grow up in those eras) . i think what's happening is that you are over emphasizing people who are characterizing his stuff as ground breaking or 'handing music a set of new parameters'. If i heard that shit before hearing his music I'd probably be more jaded towards it, luckily I wasn't bombarded with music journalism hype too much before checking out his music. I could sort of understand the reaction though, its like finally hearing Flaming Lips or Animal Collective after reading about how 'avant-garde' they are, hugely disappointing and makes you lose faith in all humanity
