Jul

Better keep your eyes on the number 11. At least, that's what the trailer for I Origins wants you to do. Although, honestly, eye have no idea what was going on. I suppose this movie doesn't look too bad, though, better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. At least it's something to keep your eye on. Okay, I'm done, eye swear.

Trailer for 'Space Station 76' is Basically Anchorman in Space

Jul
22

Such is the buzz regarding the deep-space comedy, in which the titular station's cramped and hormonal crew find their mission complicated considerably with the arrival of the new, female assistant captain, Veronica Cor- I mean, Jessica, as played by Liv Tyler. The genre spoof also stars Patrick Wilson as our mustachio'd, machismo buffoon, presumably with a love of scotch and a mahogany-scented, leatherbound hard drive stocked with the classics.

Track of the Day: Thai Street Musician Shreds Psychedelic on the Double-Necked 'Phin' Lute

Jul
22

The 'phin' is a family of Thai folk instruments, sometimes double necked, frequently with a completely sick headstock carved into a dragon motif, frequently played with reverb and delay effects that frequently put American garage to shame. Excuse me while I throw my wallet in a lake before I try to buy one of these babies.

Shades of Cage: Photos from the LA 'Nicolas Cage is God?!' Art Show

Jul
22

Los Angeles's Nicolas Cage Party proved that gods are indeed made, and that the internet is the breeding ground. Dozens of artists from the west coast and beyond paid tribute to the Rage Cage in stained glass, neon, spoken word, and every other medium imaginable--and some completely incomprehensible, leading me to believe a third eye necessary to witness all spectra of the transcended Cage. Click through for pics and a rundown of the one-night shrine to Hollywood's favored woman-punching, baby-snatching, plastic-fanged son!

Track of the Day: DIY Godfathers Half Japanese Return and Refuse to Suck

Jul
21

How often have you rolled your eyes when a musician said 'haha, oh you! you don't need music theory, custom-made gear, you don't even need to know how to play! all you's need is heart.' Well Half Japanese guitarist Jad Fair literally did not know how to play in 1975 ("the only chord I know is the one that connects the guitar to the amp") and while he's probably picked up an inkling or two regarding guitarism since then, at least he still writes music like he was born yesterday, in the most refreshing of ways.

I'm frankly surprised this is still a question on some fan's minds, but apparently it's a big enough issue that DC's chief creative officer Geoff Johns had to finally put it to rest.

Ball Pits And Backlash, Has DashCon Learned Its Lesson?

Jul
19

DashCon has released a fairly long press release explaining what went wrong at their convention, assuring us that these problems will be fixed for next year, and in some cases trying to make amends. There will of course be kneejerk doubters among you who insist on calling the whole thing a scam, but now is not the time for paranoia. It’s clear that out and out scam is not the description for the con. It’s even clear that a lot of people had a good time despite the problems.
