Best scene in film history.
Excellent 2-hour PBS documentary on Malcolm X.
woooaahhh…check out the clobber on Doom in this interview with Bishop Nehru…..the hat and knitted sweater combo…..off the chain.
Earlier on today I saw a YouTube comment claiming Doom’s beat for “Krazy World” sampled Twin Peaks, sped up. Now, being that this is a centre of a venn diagram me, I had to investigate. I completely didn’t believe it (doesn’t really sound like it, but I could see why people might think so - or maybe it was something in the mix I was missing), but enough people were saying it so I couldn’t let it lie. So I went and got the mp3 and slowed it down. And it’s not “Falling” at all.
Then I realised I could have checked whosampled.com, which has the exact sample and timestamp and all.
A wee useless story for you.
Peace to Michael Brown. Peace to Robin Williams. Peace to Gazans. Peace to Yazidis. Peace to all peoples.
"Guardians of the Galaxy" is pretty good….but not *that* good, which is too say I don’t think it lives up to some of the praise being heaped on it. It is a lot of fun, and very enjoyable though. It’s basically Star Wars with 3/4 Han Solos and more jokes. It also includes the filthiest joke ever smuggled into a summer blockbuster. Hilarious, but kind of shocking.
But yeah, very much reminded me of Star Wars. It’s no masterpiece, the plot is wafer thin and is basically entirely centered around a magical McGuffin, but the whole thing is fun. Good acting, good jokes, good action, good effects.
X-Men: Days of Future Past is by far the blockbuster of the year.
