Awesome Color

The new Sonic Youth is a wonderful throwback to the 90s. A longing for alternative music and one boring decade! Grunge bought the dying breath of punk, capped off with a shotgun blast. Then everything got retro, unashamedly so. Share on Facebook+1 on Google+Post to TumblrTweet this

The first time I saw the Gemstones play was last November, when they were opening for Die!Die!Die! Their line-up was different then and for the first ten minutes I was utterly mesmerised. Share on Facebook+1 on Google+Post to TumblrTweet this

Black Boned Angel: Bliss and Void Inseparable

As a seventeenyear-old, it took weeks of torturous listening to get past the first track on Neurosis’ Through Silver In Blood, a thirteenminute dirge on generic cialis an album that mostly resists any sort of climax. Share on Facebook+1 on Google+Post to TumblrTweet this

When he’s not playing bass for the Brunettes or fronting new band The Reduction Agents, James Milne trades under the Lawrence Arabia moniker in order to peddle such contents of the jukebox in his head as don’t fit with either of these two outfits.

This is one of my favourite movies ever. I’m fascinated with Nazi Germany, stylish martial arts, Beretta guns, and tight clothing. This movie is my piece of visual paradise. Share on Facebook+1 on Google+Post to TumblrTweet this

Awesome action? Spark? Good dialogue? Well, you won’t find it in this movie. Underworld: Evolution follows Selene (Kate Beckinsale) and Michael (Scott Speedman) through the fight of their lives against, well… EVERYBODY, and I don’t just mean the audience.

My date began to squirm as the sick shit started and she left with a half an hour to go, claiming that Wolf Creek was, “too real for me.” This is absolute perversion, dreadful, mind-blowing horror at its [...]
