Sunday, May 8th, 2016

Since I played Slowdive doing “Catch the Breeze” live last week, here’s Brazil’s Scarlet Leaves covering it this week.

Shoegazer Sunday: Starfire Connective Sound’s “To Dream You Are Floating Drunk Among The Storm”

Sunday, October 26th, 2014

I think that Starfire Connective Sound is the shoegaze/post-rock embodiment of Brazilian musician Al Schenkel. “To Dream You Are Floating Drunk Among The Storm” has a percussive edge that’s a bit closer to the post-rock end of things.

Top Ten Movies of the Last 30 Years

Tuesday, December 1st, 2009

So Dwight pointed out this list of the top five films of the last 30 years to me. I haven’t seen Brokeback Mountain, but the rest of the list is at least credible. In trying to come up with one myself, I found myself unable to limit it to just five, so here’s the more traditional Top Ten List:

  1. Brazil

  2. Schindler’s List
  3. Heavenly Creatures
  4. Raiders of the Lost Ark
  5. This is Spinal Tap
  6. The Incredibles
  7. The Lord of the Rings (Yeah, I’m counting them as one movie. You got a problem with that, wise guy?)
  8. The Killing Fields
  9. The Lives of Others
  10. Fresh

Honorable mention: Goodfellas, Black Hawk Down, Fargo, Hot Fuzz, The Prestige, Hamlet (the Branagh version), Hard-Boiled, Dead Alive (AKA Braindead), Police Story III: Supercop, Juno, The Empire Strikes Back, Shall We Dance? (original Japanese version), Unforgiven, Blade Runner

Disclaimer: These are all at this particular moment in time, and I’m sure right after I put it up I’ll remember something I forgot to include. Shameless Amazon filthy lucre linkage above (generally to the edition I would get, unless it’s not in print, like some Criterion editions). Some settling may occur. Some body parts may not exist. Do not taunt Happy Fun Ball.

So what are your top ten?
