2017-12-08 : shape of things to come

This songs randomly pops up in my life. It’s from the movie “Wild in the Streets” which is definitly a “must watch” if you haven’t seen it. It’s pefect for today’s really fun political climate.

It’s a bummer bands like Max Frost & The Troopers are fictional. This song rules and should have been a monster hit.


03/30: Ikiru

The reviews I read don’t do this movie justice. I can’t imagine what it would have been like to have seen it in 1952.



03/23: fruit stand abuse

I rented the movie Ronin on iTunes today because it was $0.99. There is a scene where a fruit stand gets shot up. Hollywood loves shooting up and driving cars through fruit stands.


03/21: bad 80’s movie

A friend recommend a bad 80’s movie to me called Computer Beach Party. Some times you just have to watch a bad movie. Computer Beach Party delivered. In the 80s, the solution to most problems was an epic party.


02/28: Citizen Kane

I finally watched Citizen Kane last night. I had been putting it off for a long time. Too many people said it is the best movie ever made. When people overhype a thing, I tend to hold off watching or listening to it. It is a weird habit for sure.

Glad I finally watched it though. This epic was epic.


02/25: hidden fortress

I watched Akira Kurosawa’s movie Hidden Fortress tonight. I had been putting it off for a long time because this is the one people say Star Wars is “influenced” by. 

It’s an incredible movie. I bet when it came out in 1958, it made the other action movies seem kind of simplistic. Current action movies too.
